Basic Questions

 Q. How can I sign up as a model?A. You need to register as a common member and upload a color photo of your ID with birthdate, your color photo with your ID in hands and a filled and signed agreement. It takes ~24 hours to check and approve your documents. You can check the status of your documents here (http://xhamster.com/cam_docs.php), if any of them was rejected please make a correction and reupload your document.

 Q. Who can be a webcam model on xHamster.com?A. We accept 18+ years old females, males, couples and transgenders!

 Q. Does this cost money?A. Membership is FREE, whether you are a model or a viewer. Signing up is fast and FREE!

 Q. How can I earn money on xHamster.com?A. There are several ways for earning:

1. Get tipped for your show
Members are allowed to send tokens as tips at public show. They can tip the models as a show of appreciation for them sharing themselves and for answering requests. It’s not required to give the models tips but the models go on cam for free so it is a VERY nice gesture to give them tokens for sharing their bodies and time with the viewers! When purchasing tokens there are two packages 200 or 550. When tipping a model viewers can tip as many or as few tokens as they want and in return some of the models set their rooms so only tippers can make comments. Model earns $0.05 for every token.
Users who spend tokens on models receive gold points. One gold point equals 10 tokens spent.

2. Earn from private shows
A private show costs 24 tokens ($1.2) per minute by default. However, this price can be changed at http://xhamster.com/edit_cam.php. A viewer can request a private show from any model but it is up to the model to decide who they will go into a private room with. In the private room, the model does a special show for ONLY ONE viewer. The private show can be ended at any time by any of the two parties or automatically when the viewer runs out of tokens.

3. Earn from peeping members
Every model has an ability to earn from peeping members in private shows. This function allows other members to spy on a private show by paying a default price of 8 tokens ($0.4) for a minute of peeping. This price can be changed at http://xhamster.com/edit_cam.php. Peeping members are not allowed to write comments. They can watch the show as long as they have tokens available. Once they run out of tokens, they will not be able to watch until they buy more.

4. Earn from Cam2Cam
Cam2Cam is an one-on-one cam show where a model and a member can see each other. It costs 24 tokens ($1.2) per minute by default. However, this price can be changed at http://xhamster.com/edit_cam.php. Every viewer with tokens can request a Cam2Cam show from any model but it is up to the model to decide who they will go into a private room with. Cam2Cam has proven to be an excellent choice for new and old models because of its individual approach and good earning potential.

5. Earn money receiving gifts from members
Gift is a form of tips, when you receive a virtual gift, real money will be added to your balance.

6. Sell your private videos on xHamster
You can upload your private videos and earn money with it! You can setup price for each video (1 - 500 tokens).
