Skype 8 compatibility ensured

skype8 compatibility

A while ago, around August, Microsoft signaled that they would drop support for Skype 7, a feature rich version of Skype that users came to enjoy more than the latest.

At the time we advised you not to upgrade, as the company (Microsoft) and the software (Skype) came to push you to do.

We were already in the process of improving our plugin to become compatible with Skype 8, and now we can tell you that it’s safe to upgrade!

How to avoid scammers on SkyPrivate

Hello, darlings and welcome back to our blog!

Today we want to talk to you about a serious matter: scammers. Yep! As long as money is involved, there will always be people who will want to take advantage of you.

There are lots of scammers who frequent cam sites in search for freebies. Most of the time, they will ask for a free show, they will promise to tip you well after you’ve done a show (which never happens!), or they will chargeback. If an offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

Although this doesn’t happen a lot on SkyPrivate, there are stories of cam models who got scammed: they gave long, explicit shows in the promise of a big tip at the end, but they never received that tip.

Because we care a lot about your safety and your overall experience on our platform, we wanted to raise awareness.

So, through this blog post, we want to teach you not only how to identify scammers and how to avoid them, but also how to make sure they will never bother you again. At any given time, if a member harasses or blackmails you (saying that he knows who you are or he has pictures of you and he will tell your friends and family if you don’t give him a free show), or if you simply think that an account is suspicious, please report that user immediately by using one of our official communication channels!

Now, let’s dive right in, shall we?

SkyPrivate: How to rank higher as a model. Tips & tricks

As a cam model, you probably find yourself struggling to make your profile get as much exposure as possible. That’s why it’s really important that your profile ranks as higher as possible because that’s how you attract new customers (who, hopefully, will turn into regulars or even whales).

Think about it this way: let’s say you are in the market for some new sex toys. You’ll either go directly to your favorite shop or do your research on Google to see what’s new or trending right now. When you are googling, how often do you find yourself get past the first page of results? The same applies to your SkyPrivate profile: the lower it ranks, the harder will be for you to attract customers.

But there’s no need for you to get discouraged because we have some tips that will help you rank higher. Curious? Let’s begin!

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

How to install and use the SkyPrivate Mac Plugin

Once we launched our SkyPrivate Mac plugin, we noticed that our FAQ section didn’t had a tutorial yet on how to use the plugin, so I’ve just made it today. 🙂
First, go to your SkyPrivate account in https://accounts.skyprivate.com/ and click on “Download Skype Plugin”.

Click in the Apple Mac logo and the download will start immediately.

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.35.28

Drag the SkyPrivate App Icon in the Applications folder.

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.35.56

Open the Applications folder and proceed with the installation (double click on it).

^9A6DFD163D7CF7E4C34CF5DCFACC7582F52CBEE272F02084FD^pimgpsh_fullsize_distr

Click on “Open” to accept the installation setup.

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.36.22

After the installation is complete, select to “Allow this application to use Skype” and then click on the OK button.

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.36.37

You should see the Plugin running in the menu bar. Make sure that you’re also logged into it with your username as shown in the example. Also make sure that your Skype ID is the same as the SkyPrivate Username in order for the plugin to work.

^646EA4B4A97FE3EF0DC55502993452CE6F526C569C69BF52D5^pimgpsh_fullsize_distr

When a member tries to call you, the plugin will show if he is or not a SkyPrivate member and if he is or not able to pay.

Example of a caller who is registered on SkyPrivate and who has money in his account:

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.46.22

If you’re not identity verified yet, the member will need to approve the payment separately. This is what the pop-up message will show

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.46.49

After the payment was approved, you will start to charge him every minute as shown bellow:

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.48.53

And after one minute (we had the price of $1/min)

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.49.54

That’s how it works. In case you need help with something related, you can look in other questions in the FAQs or e-mail us at support [at] skyprivate [dot] com. You can always add us on Skype at: skyprivatesupport to have a close contact.

web cam models don’t know about ewhoring?! the fraud method

I just realized that maybe most of the real cam models do not know what the other players from this industry are.
So I just want to give you a heads-up about the fraud methods that some people use to make money as a fake webcam model. it is called “ewhoring” or “e-whoring”

basically fraudsters steal the identity of real girls (or buy it) , then make or buy fake video loops with that girl and then use it to create fake accounts on cam sites to pretend they are real models.
this is a bad thing – also for you the real models – because these type of fake models give a very bad impression to the good members that start not to trust anymore any webcam girl and stop to pay money for live shows because they got burnt.

here is one definition:
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=eWhoring

eWhoring is a black hat technique for making money. Basically what you do it you pretend to be a girl in a chat room. Then you talk to guys and you ask them to sign up to your affiliate program, usually an adult affiliate program, and once they sign up you get paid.
Hey man! U gotta try ewhoring, basically u pretend to be a girl in chat rooms have a bit of cybersex with some guys and earn tons of cash!

also, a very nice youtube video is this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hw9Qm6Et0Tk

and do you know that this kids have big forums where they teach each other and also sell to each other those video loops and pics and fake identities? it is quite a big community and industry.

just keep this in mind: in the cam industry are many more players involved beside the cam site, model and member.
