How Pay-Per-Minute works and the advantages of this payment method

How Pay-Per-Minute works and the advantages of this payment method

At SkyPrivate, we are known for our Pay-Per-Minute technology that enables our users to enjoy Live Skype Shows and only pay for what they watch. If you don’t know what Pay-Per-Minute is and why you should use this payment method, here are the top reasons to start using it right now!

The advantages of using the Pay-Per-Minute payment method on SkyPrivate

 

1. Pay as you go

By using the Pay-Per-Minute method, you only pay for what you watch, unlike with the prepaid method, where once your money is gone, it’s gone for good! That’s why I would strongly advise you that, if you really want to use prepay as a payment method, only pay in advance models you have already interacted with in the past. You wouldn’t want to pay for a show you might never get, right?

Let’s say you are savoring a show, and you hear your wife/girlfriend entering the house. You’ve only enjoyed 2 or 3 minutes so far. Wouldn’t it be better if you only paid for those minutes, instead of the whole 30 minutes show that you didn’t get to enjoy?

 

2. Easy to end a call anytime you want

I’m sure you went at least once on a date with someone you met online, and that person turned up to look completely different. Tough luck! But did you go on with the date? I know I wouldn’t! The same goes for our platform: why should you pay for a show if the model looks completely different from the profile photos/videos? If you’re not enjoying the show, it’s your right to go and find another model!

The image or sound quality does not match your expectations? The model looks different than what you saw on the profile? Is the show not to your liking? You can leave whenever you want, and you don’t have to pay anything extra!

 

3. Privacy & security

Skype calls and chat are secured; no one will ever peep into your conversation with the model – it’s just you and the model! We never share your details with anyone (and I advise you not to share sensitive personal data or media with the models either), so you can rest assured that your secret is always safe with us!

Also, your bank statement will look something like this:

SkyPrivate statement

No one will ever know what you choose to do with your money in your spare time! However, choosing Western Union, PayPal or any other alternative method to prepay models will not ensure the same level of privacy. Why would you give up on that?

 

4. Top up once & pay many

You don’t need to add funds each time you want to make a call. SkyPrivate allows you to use your account as an e-wallet. You can add money once a month for example, and enjoy live shows whenever you want.

Best things in life are unplanned! Let’s say you planned a 20 minutes show for the weekend, but you are having so much fun that you don’t even realize when the time passes. Do you want to be suddenly interrupted right when things were getting interesting? Or do you want to keep watching? See? Yet another reason to choose Pay-Per-Minute!

 

5. Nothing to install

Noupe, there’s absolutely nothing you have to install if you want to enjoy Pay-Per-Minute Skype Shows. Everything has already been taken care of! All you have to do is pick your favorite model, sit back, relax, and enjoy your private show! Oh, and did I mention that you can watch shows on your phone or tablet as well? Well, you can!

 

6. No additional fees

There are no additional fees associated with the Pay-Per-Minute method – every inside transaction you make is free of charge!

Any transactions that you make using the payment methods provided by SkyPrivate have no additional fees attached. However, if you choose to pay via PayPal, Western Union, or any other payment method (which I don’t advise you to do because you might expose your personal information), you will be charged a transaction fee.

 

How to enjoy Pay-Per-Minute Skype Shows

You can enjoy Pay-Per-Minute Skype Shows from any device that runs Skype as there’s nothing to install and the funds are automatically transferred from your account.

 

1. Register

SkyPrivate register

If you don’t have a SkyPrivate account already, you can sign up here: accounts.skyprivate.com.

Make sure that your account is set up correctly; otherwise, you will not be able to call models! The Skype ID you used to create your SkyPrivate account should be the same as the one you use to make the calls, or it will not work!

Please set up your account with an email address that you check at least once a week. I promise we won’t spam you, but it’s important that you are informed about any adjustments and improvements to our services. Also, we will use this email to get in contact with you in case you signal any issues with models you had calls with.

 

2. Load your account with funds

SkyPrivate topup account

After you have created your account, it’s time to add money. You can use multiple payment methods: Credit Card, Debit Card, Mastercard, VISA, AMEX, iDEAL, SOFORT, Paysafe Card, Bitcoin, Bancontact Mister Cash, Paxum, or Payza.

The minimum amount you can load your account with is $10. However, before making a call, you should also check the model’s pay rate and make sure you have funds for at least a 5-minute long call. For example, if the model has a Pay-Per-Minute rate of $3, your account should be loaded with at least $3 x 5 minutes = $15. With that being said, most of our members add about $25 – $30 to their account – the equivalent of a dinner for one at an average restaurant.

Keep in mind that models know whether you have funds or not, so you should not expect them to answer if you don’t have any!

Search for your desired model

If you don’t already have someone in mind, it’s time to start searching for a model. Head to the SkyPrivate models’ profiles page and find the one that is your type.

4. Chat a little

First, we encourage you to chat with the model on Skype to see whether she is available for a call. If she is, this would be the perfect time to share your kinky fantasies and find out what turns her on, so she can prepare for the show.

5. Time to make the call

Before you make a call, you should always check that you have enough funds in your account for the show you had planned and you are logged in with your dedicated Skype ID!

If the model answers, you will receive a message in the Skype chat confirming the Pay-Per-Minute rate that she’s charging you with.

If the model does not answer or she rejects the call, it could be because your account has not been verified, you don’t have enough funds, or she’s simply not available for the moment. You can schedule a show with her later. Look for the “Schedule a Show” button on her profile and plan your show!

6. Are you enjoying your call?

The most important thing I want you to remember when you are making a call on SkyPrivate is to enjoy your experience! With that being said, if the model or the show is not to your liking, you can leave anytime you want!

If your call gets interrupted, here are a few possible reasons:

The Internet connection went down (either for you or the model)
You ran out of funds (however, we are currently working on a feature that will notify you minutes before you run out of funds)
There are technical issues with your device, Skype or the plugin. If such issues come up often, I encourage you to get in touch with us at support.skyprivate.com.

7. After the call

Once the show is over, you will receive an email with the amount you have invested in your less than guilty pleasure (one more reason to use an email you check at least once a week for your SkyPrivate profile) and another one inviting you to rate the model you had a show with. Should you encounter any technical difficulties, we encourage you to share them with us at support.skyprivate.com by issuing a new ticket.

All about cryptocurrencies for cam models: How to set-up payments in crypto

skyprivate crypto bitcoin withdrawal funds payout

Blockchain, cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin. Do they sound like buzzwords to you too?

But who says this language is for nerds only? 😎 Ladies and gents, it’s about time someone explains why cryptocurrencies are something you can’t miss if you want to boost your revenues, get more clients and why not, adopt the latest payment trends.

 

bitcoin everywhere cryptocurrency crypto

 

But first… let me tell you a word or two about what blockchain, Bitcoins, and cryptocurrencies mean

A blockchain is… hmm… Think about it like a new Internet.

It’s a network where all the transactions (regardless of their type: financial transactions, messages, links, etc.) are recorded chronologically, with no possibility of removal. As it is a digital medium, the members of this network pay in virtual coins called cryptocurrencies. Every time someone makes a payment using cryptocurrencies, that transaction is stored forever.

It’s much more secure, fast, reliable, fee-free than any other online payment.

Today, there are many cryptocurrencies out there, the most popular being Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple. A lot of people use them, especially Bitcoin, which seems to take on cash, as more places accept payments in crypto. The same goes for the camming industry as more and more studios accept cryptocurrencies because many of the clients/models ask for this functionality.

 

cryptocurrencies are like having a swiss bank account in your pocket

How Bitcoin can help you earn more money as a cam model

Now that we’ve got all the technical terms out of the way let’s get to the fun part: making more money! Below, I have summed up five reasons why Bitcoin (and cryptocurrencies in general) can significantly boost your revenue and get you more clients with minimum effort.

1. You will actually save money, can you believe it?

Well, believe or not, over the years, in the US alone, people have paid over $78 billion in fees for transaction processing. That’s insane! Bitcoin, in exchange, does not require a bank or any other financial institution to verify every transaction. That means it’s fee-free! No more sharing your hard-earned money with banks, so more money for you.

2. You can acquire new customers

Cryptocurrencies are really popular these days, and many of those early adopters are your clients too. By accepting cryptocurrency payments, you can attract more customers to your profile and increase your revenue. By the way, crypto-tips are the new fanciness! They grow over time if you know what I mean! 😍

3. You avoid fraud and chargebacks

No, I’m not getting into technical details here (I don’t wanna bore you) but when it comes to frauds, cryptocurrencies are hard to be played. That’s because of the technology behind it, which doesn’t allow people to steal money from other people’s wallets without being noticed by everyone in the network.

What’s even more interesting (especially for us who care so, so much about privacy) is that Bitcoin also offers a unique and easy way to make a payment without needing to disclose your personal information. That means if the President of (*insert here whatever country you fancy more*) sends you some money, nobody else knows that, except the two of you. Of course, you can make this public if you want, but that’s up to you.

4. You don’t have to exchange your money

Yes, darling. Whoever told you – you’ll have a hard time exchanging your cryptocurrencies – didn’t make his homework. Bad boy, or girl. How come? Let me explain this to you.

If you’ve ever traveled abroad, you know that you need to exchange your money for the local currency to be able to make purchases. Since cryptocurrencies do not belong to any country or financial institution, they can be used internationally. This means they help you avoid the expensive foreign transaction fees or exchange rates, so you end up with more money to use for shopping! Pretty cool, ain’t that right?

5. Think of Bitcoin as an investment

Slowly but surely, cash is becoming a thing of the past, as almost everyone is using credit or debit cards. You can expect the same to happen to cards as cryptocurrencies become more and more popular. Besides, the value of your cryptocurrencies can grow over time if you choose to keep them, instead of spending them right away. Suddenly you’re an investor as well!

How to accept Bitcoin payments on SkyPrivate

Since you’ve reached so far with this article, I think it’s about time to get a look on how you can actually accept payments in crypto.

You probably think that this will be a complicated process that requires quite a bit of technical knowledge! No!

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how you can set up your account to start receiving payments in Bitcoin on SkyPrivate (but the logic is the same for all the websites out there). And if you need help, remember: we’re always just a message away!

1. Create a digital wallet and verify your account

A digital wallet is like a bank account – it’s a software or an app used to store cryptocurrencies, in this case, your Bitcoin. A few options to choose from are Coinbase, Uphold, and Wirex.

The decision of choosing a platform over another is influenced by the country you live in. Some platforms operate in certain countries. Coinbase is available in: USA, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Jersey, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and United Kingdom.

This time, I will show you how to set up your account using Coinbase. For Uphold and Wirex, you can find an in-depth tutorial on our support portal: support.skyprivate.com.

To create and verify your Coinbase account, you’ll have to submit the required documents on their website: coinbase.com. After that, you will get your own Bitcoin Wallet where you can receive your SkyPrivate funds. More details about setting up your Coinbase account in the following video.

2. Find the Bitcoin address associated with your account

After you signed-up, log into your Coinbase account and click on “Accounts“. Then, on the “BTC Wallet” tab, click on “Receive“.

coinbase accounts btc wallet receive find bitcoin address for your account

3. Use your Bitcoin address to make a SkyPrivate withdrawal

After you’ve found your Bitcoin address, you need to log into your SkyPrivate account and go to Payments → Withdraw.

Paste your Bitcoin address in the required field, choose the amount (in dollars) you wish to withdraw and submit a new withdrawal request.

4. Exchange the Bitcoin you received from SkyPrivate to a preferred currency ($, €, £, etc.)

Log into your Coinbase account and go to “Buy/Sell“.

coinbase buy sell exchange bitcoin to usd eur

5. Transfer the exchanged amount to your bank account or credit card

You can transfer the money from your Coinbase account to your bank account or credit card (depending on the platform you use and the country you live in).

Transfer fees for your Coinbase account → https://support.coinbase.com/customer/portal/articles/2109597-buy-sell-bank-transfer-fees.

That’s it! You are ready to receive your first Bitcoin payments. If you need help with setting up your account, you can always message us here: https://www.skyprivate.com/contact-skyprivate/.

CONCLUSION

I know that this crypto-stuff might look intimidating, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to do this in your sleep!

Think about the first time when you used your online card: it seemed counter-intuitive and difficult, but in time you got the skills. It will be the same for crypto as well. You’re gonna master crypto payments in no time!

Skype is switching gears, we got your back [Skype update from v.7 to v.8]

Do not upgrade yet to Skype 8

Recent update – 08.30.2018

Since Microsoft came out last month and said that they will be ending support for Skype 7 very soon. After this announcement, most of the users noticed that the newer version of Skype (8), is not up to par and it lacks some basic functionality that was already available in the previous version.

Because of that users have pushed back and created petitions for keeping the Skype 7 version as is. That’s why Microsoft has officially stated that they will keep Skype 7 for “some time”.

We want to reassure you that our plugin update is days away from it’s public release. The new update support both Skype 7 and Skype 8. So, you will be fully covered regardless of the Skype version you prefer.

So keep an eye out on your email inbox and on Social Media for future updates!

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

You may have noticed Skype’s blog post from yesterday about Skype 8 fully replacing Skype 7 (Classic) starting September 1st and inviting you to upgrade soon.

By the time Skype 7 (Classic) rolls out you’ll be using a new version of our plugin, fully compatible with Skype 8.

You are safe using our plugin if you do not update yet: if you’re a SkyPrivate model, then you’re still using Skype 7 (Classic) because that’s the latest version that our plugin is compatible with.

However, we noticed Skype’s changing nature since last year and our Research & Development Department had this on the radar for the past 6 months: making the plugin fully compatible with Skype 8.

 

Do not update

For now, all you have to do is resist the urge to update to Skype 8 :smiley: so, again DO NOT UPDATE YET to Skype 8, wait for our signal.

As you read this, we’re ironing out any issues that may arise with Skype 8 and soon we’ll be testing the new version.

In the meantime, keep close and enjoy our 7 Days Summer Campaign!

For any questions, we invite you to join our Discord Support Server.

 

Already upgraded?

We prepared a short tutorial on how to get back to Skype 7.

SkyPrivate And We-Vibe Will Be At BSummit 2018

About the Exxxotica Expo

EXXXOTICA is the largest adult event in the USA Dedicated to Love & Sex. Taking place over three days, EXXXOTICA was created for like-minded adults who are looking to “celebrate sexy”. The event is taking place between 31 March to 2 April, at the CROWNE PLAZA in Denver, USA. Whether for date-night, bachelor or bachelorette parties or just good ole people watching, there’s something for everyone (over 18) at EXXXOTICA.

FirstChoicePay status at SkyPrivate

There are rumors spreading wider and wider regarding FirstChoice Pay ceasing its services starting today. By the time you read this article, most likely these rumors would have turned into certainty.

This is the general situation, as we gathered from several sources:

  1. As of today, April 10th, 2018, FirstChoicePay is ceasing its services. That is because Choice Bank, the issuing bank of prepaid FCP cards is ceasing its services as well.
  2. As far as we know, the balance on your card is still available for your usage whether you want to withdraw cash at an ATM to go shopping in a store.
  3. We were informed that the balance in your account will be returned to its original source – the company/website paying you.
  4. FCP (FirstChoice Pay) card can’t be loaded anymore and FCP wallets can’t receive payments from companies from the adult industry, like us
  5. The public information is that Paxum cards are issued by the same Choice Bank so this means that the same terms and issues could apply to these cards too. However, the Paxum Wallet should not pose any issues.

To clarify, at SkyPrivate:

FCP has been disabled as a withdraw option in our system.

If your FCP withdraw has been processed but you did not manage to load the money to the card, the funds are returning to us and we will soon credit your SkyPrivate account back too so that you can withdraw it using an alternative method. Rest assured your money is safe with us.

We recommend using the following alternatives:

USA residents

1. Bank deposit via ACH
Fee: $5 | minimum $100 – maximum $3000 per transaction | 3 business days to reach your account

2.International bank transfer (SWIFT)
Fee: $50 | minimum $2000 | 3 – 5 business days to reach your account

3.Bitcoin
Fee: $0.00 (network fee is paid by SkyPrivate) | instant load

non-USA residents

1.ePayments wallet – EUR payout only
Fee: 0.0 $ | instant load

2.International bank transfer (SWIFT) in USD
Fee: $50 | minimum $2000 | 3 – 5 business days to reach your account

3.Bitcoin
Fee: $0.00 (network fee is paid by SkyPrivate) | instant load

4.European bank transfer (SEPA) in EUR
Fee: $0 | minimum $100 per transaction ( 2 business days to reach your account )

5.Paxum Wallet
Fee: $2 | instant load | If you do not have Paxum account register here

What are we going to do in the next 24 – 48h?

  • Credit your SkyPrivate account back with the amount FCP did not manage to load to your FCP card so that you can withdraw it using another method (after the amount is returned to our FCP business account)
  • Gather all useful information we find on this topic in this blog post
  • Get back to you with a follow-up email indicating all the alternative payout options we can offer you so that you can withdraw your money

Skype banning accounts because of SESTA? How to protect your account with Skyprivate

Update #2 May 2nd 2018:

Update #1 April 27th 2018:

Short update about what you need to know related to SESTA and Skyprivate business:

SkyPrivate is not an U.S. company and SESTA will not influence the platform we built for web cam models. Skyprivate will always be adult friendly! Skype only updated its terms of use to add “no offensive language allowed” starting May 1st 2018. The “no pornography” article was in their terms for years, so not this is the big change they added as many models believed. Now more then ever we really believe that using Skyprivate to manage the income for skype shows, having a backup of the paying customers and their spending with you, will protect your professional activity as a cam girl.

For extra back-up against having your skype account banned and losing the contacts, read a detailed post below:

 

Original post:

Everybody that is using Skype for personal and professional activities is now interested if Microsoft/Skype will start banning their account if you do any sexy video calls.

We are trying to assure you that if you prepare yourself a bit, you can stay safe and not be affected. We start by explaining the context but if you just want to skip to the part of how you can protect your Skype account and your list of Skyprivate customers – go to the last paragrah.

 

 

  • Why Skype and many other major services like Reddit and CraigList are now banning anything that is related to legal “adult entertainment”?

Because of SESTA.  Because U.S.A. politicians, in their attempt of controlling sex trafficking (that is something illegal) created  collateral damage for the legal acting adult-industry businesses and any american user-generated online platform like Reddit and Craiglist.

Because now any american website has a liability for ALL the content that is found on its servers. This means that if somebody uploads a content that is illegal (minors, sex trafficking, etc) on Google Drive; now Google Drive is exposed to a very big legal risk; and not just the person that posted that content online.

To protect their own businesses you can see 2 types of reactions:

  • some companies just closed down their entire services/categories used by individuals (like CraigList did for example) or
  • updated their TOS (terms of usage of the service) to allow them to INVESTIGATE and then BAN the account holder and his content.

 

  • What did Microsoft/Skype say and what will they do?

Microsoft/Skype reaction was to update their own ToS: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/servicesagreement/upcoming.aspx

What they did was to modify the terms so that they have the right to investigate your account and content when you are flagged (by other users or algorithms – maybe).  In an interview by The Register A Redmond spokesperson sent the following answer:

We are committed to providing our customers with safe and secure experiences while using our services. The recent changes to the Microsoft Service Agreement’s Code of Conduct provide transparency on how we respond to customer reports of inappropriate public content.

The keywords here are : “customer reports” and “public content”.

 

  • What Microsoft/Skype can technically do and how does this influence the work of Skype cam-girls?

We expect that Skype will add new methods for its own users to report other Skype users. We know that Skype video/audio calls & text are encrypted but not yet end-to-end encrypted. This means that people can not access the content of your video/audio call but Skype can investigate and find on its servers when and for how long you had skype calls with another users. And until end-to-end encryption will be available by default, Skype can access a skype video/audio conversation if they start to “listen” from the start of the call (this means that you were reported and they are listening to you in particular. We assume.). We also expect Skype – considering the NSA scandal from the past –  not to start to record billions of skype to skype call-hours on its servers, because technically and business wise  this does not make sense.

In a nutshell this means that we do not expect many things to change for Skype and its users – technically. Just that they are covering themselves legally and upgrading the reporting mechanism.

 

 

  • How can you protect your Skype related cam-girl business? What can you do ?

Before May 1st nobody can predict how Skype platform will react and what will be the impact of any new change. But if you are a Skyprivate.com cam girl that is building a strong business using Skype you have at least the following back-up for the worst case scenario if you get your Skype account banned:

  1. be sure you have a skyprivate.com account if you are not registered already – because all the payments, transactions and history of your calls with paying customers are saved on our own servers and Skype can not delete/ban this information. We are not an american company and we are adult friendly.
  2. be sure that from time to time you also do a back-up of all your own skype contacts. you can see a tutorial about exporting your skype contacts here. The list of the contacts can be imported in any new skype account you want to create in the future.
  3. even if you skipped step no. 2 above, in the worst case scenario where your skype account gets banned by being reported, you can create new skype account and then change your username (Skype ID) in your Skyprivate account
  4. as an extra safety measure you should set in your Skyprivate account to not have your Skype ID publicly displayed in your profile. This way, only members that are premium and have credits can see your skype ID. This translates in lower chances in having your skype ID reported by freeloaders to Skype.

 

In conclusion we say to all our models that use skype for live-camming:

Do not worry too much about the new Skype terms if you keep doing legal activity, if you do not share your skype ID all over the internet publicly, if you do a back-up of your contacts and if you’re using Skyprivate for billing.

We at Skyprivate, do not expect many things to change for Skype and its users – technically. Just that they are covering themselves legally and upgrading the reporting mechanism.

 

 

We will update this article after May 1st with any developments about this matter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New Skype, new Skype Translator

Chances are you’ve used Skype Translator at least once.

SkyPrivate models benefit from this useful perk when it comes to interacting with members that do not speak languages that they know.

Recently Skype did a couple of changes to its interface and launched a new version. We tried to play with the translator and noticed it works a bit different than in the previous version.

In the previous version, as instructed in the Skype support section, you would simply activate it.

Now, you would have to add it to your conversation, as if it were another Skype user, the Translator. This leads to the creation of a new, dedicated chat room with the users in the first one and the translator. We know, it might be a bit annoying to do that but it works well. However, we rely more on the text chat version for now,.

We did a small tutorial for you to follow if you want to activate Skype Translator in the new Skype. Let us know if you have any questions.

SkyPrivate will be at BCAMS
