    Default New to Streamate - pay rates, gold, % cuts?

    Hi Everyone,

    First, so happy to find this awesome and supportive community.

    i just joined SM last week and noticed that you take a TINY percentage of your actual show earnings! Please correct me if i'm wrong , but we take 35% cut of the total price?

    I do not have a sold clientele yet, so I had my rates set low: 2.29 premium / 2.99 exclusive. Now i've switched it to 3.99 private / 4.99 exclusive. Is that too much $ ?

    The other thing is what is "Gold" and how does it work? Is it automatic or do you have to sign up or encode it like HD camming?

    Oh yes, and how do i find my ratings?? i have all 5 stars in yellow but I'd like to see something more... tangible

    I am pretty sure after reading thru some of these threads that I've been going about it all wrong and showing too much for free, be it guest or premium chat. it sounds right to just kind of play with your hair and tease in guest, in premium - how far? soft core style?, and save general xxx for exclusive? How do you know when a guest is entering a premium or exclusive chat?

    Thanks in advance for your help! Good luck to everyone!

    Hi lolamadeline,

    Welcome to SW.

    I am kind of new here and am also still on my first month at SM.

    But I think I can give you a feedback on your questions.

    Yes, the percentage we get is 35% of paid sessions and of Gold.

    Gold is the term they use for tips. You don't need to do anything to receive GILD/tips from customers visiting your room. When they send GOLD, you will see a message from SM saying that you go GOLD. I am just not going to say exactly what the message says because some guys try and full new girls by writing themselves a message saying that they sent gold (I fell for it the first time, so I know). If you PM me, I can tell you the exact sentence you will see when someone sends you GOLD.

    Regarding the prices, I, personally don't like to make the exclusive session price be too much higher than the premium/group session. Even when the difference is smaller, most guys will just go for group to pay less.

    I can't say whether your prices are high or not because I don't know any details about you, what kind of shows you offer, etc. You can always test it out and see. You can only change prices once every 24 hours, but it is good to know that if one price doesn't work for you, you can change it next day. It is a trial and error thing.

    I raised my prices on my first week and then on my second week again and have been doing fine. My group price is the same as yours but I made the exclusive 50 cents more than group. I will raise the prices again sometime in the near future, when I feel that I have a following that is stable enough to hold the higher prices. Even though I am usually on the top two rows of the first page or even in the fist spot of the first page for most most of the time I am logged in, I am still hesitant to raise the prices again so soon. But you may have something that they are willing to pay a good price to see so, prices are relative.

    Good luck at SM and Happy Camming!

    thanks ladies!

    I still don't know about the "gold" / tipping thing.... is it automatically on your stream, or do you activate it somehow?

    It is automatic. You don't need to do anything. As long as you are streaming and doing free chat, customers can send you gold. The only thing you can do is to give your visitors incentives to send you GOLD.

    When a visitor sends you GOLD you will see a message on the chat panel, the same one where you see the names of who enters and leaves and see whatever they type to communicate with you.

    Lol. When i saw this thread i thought of you Kitana. Take a deep breath . . . relax . . . ahh.

    Seriously OP - please search - there are lots of threads of here about what you are asking - in fact i believe there are even some on the very first page of this section of the forum.

    In answer to one of your questions - you cannot see your ratings (like who rated you what how many stars they gave you etc) - you can read your reviews and there is a report that tells you if you received any bad ratings but i think that is it.

    i apologize for making another post on the board? as it happens i did go through most of those forums before and they weren't cohesive or helping me, or even related directly to STREAMATE. lots of bitching back and forth, not straight answers, etc. i work better one on one, and SSxxx did an amazing job helping me, also in PM. maybe this post got on your vet nerves, but it sure helped me and from the amt of views probably others too.

    Thanks
