Things to look out for when broadcasting on Amateur.tv
Amateur.tv is similar to Chaturbate in many ways. But if you are used to broadcasting on Chaturbate, Stripchat, or Bongacams, it’s slightly different here and you may lose your earning if you don’t know about these.
1. Check the payout methods to models
Payment methods available depends on which country do you come from.
If you do not reside in the countries that Amateur.tv has a closer business relationship with, you may have very limited choice to get your money. For example, Paypal and Cosmo Payment are the basic payout for the miscellaneous countries. We all know Paypal is not adult/porn friendly. How long before Paypal finds out and stop accepting their payout. You just don’t want to have your money sit in your model account at amateur.tv and can’t get it out. So check out your payment options before you put your heart and sweat to perform there.
Payment options available for major countries include Crosscard, Cosmo Payment, Paypal, and wire transfer. And you have to earn at least $100 before you get your payout.
On 24 Nov 2020, I received an email from Amateur.tv telling me that Paxum is coming to their site. I went to check and found again that they promise Paxum is coming but it is still not on the payment options page for me to choose yet. Maybe they wait till more models and studios sign up with Paxum before they made changes to their site.
2. Complete your game
Besides ordinary tips and private shows earning, amateur.tv has games. But for each game you started, you need to “complete” it before the tips go into your earnings.
To complete the games means, you have to go to the game tab next to the list of users in your room and click the “Complete” button. If you close your broadcast without clicking the “Complete” button, your earnings will be gone for that game. Sigh! I learnt it the hard way. 😣 And in some cases, if the goal is not met, even if you click “Complete”, it will prompt you that you are giving up the tips of the game. This has a similar idea of Stremate’s Gold Show except that amateur.tv doesn’t warn you in advance. With Gold Show, everyone knows that the tips go to a pool and viewers have to pay, and models get the gold only when the tip goal is achieved. But there is nothing on amature.tv mentions this important point.
3. Rules, rules and rules
Don’t mess with the rules or you may get your account killed. You mustn’t:
- Include personal details for guys to contact you.
- No mentions of Skype shows
- No minors, not even sound of the minors
- No REAL incest (yes, their terms and conditions use the word REAL…)
4. If you don’t speak Spanish and you would like to broadcast here
Amateur.tv is a Spanish site. The whole site was built in Spanish first and translation was added later. Therefore, it is not surprising that there are many informational pages and not translated, or some of the translation is a bit off.
For example, the setting instruction for OBS setting is in Spanish only. I have to find the Spanish page and translate it in Google.
There are English translations that look peculiar until something happened and you found out what they actually mean. For example, see this screenshot of a viewer.
This is a quick view of one of the viewers in my room. But the translation in English is odd. Finally, I found that:
- “Worn out” is the amount the coins that he has now
- “Spent on cam” is actually the amount that he has spent on you. I noticed that before he tipped me, “spent on cam” was zero. I thought he has never spent on amateur.tv. Until he started to tip me then I found what it actually means.
Games on Amateur.tv
- VibraLush with Challenges
Proposal and Multi-goal are basically goals. I can’t help reminding you again that you MUST go to the game tab and confirm you “proposal” or “multi-goal” so as to conclude the game, honor one of the contributors so as to get your earnings.
VibraLush and VibraLush with Challenges are based on the interactive toys like Lovense Lush and Flamingo. If you have a sound controlled sex toy you can use that under the “with sound” category. By turning on “sound effects” on the site, your toy will react to the tip sound, like the Ohmibod in the early days.
Before you change games or stop broadcasting, “complete” your VibraLush to collect your earning. I have set up a quick VibraLush game using the system default, and let the first guy tipped a bit so that I can complete it and show you what it’s like when a game is completed.
As you see in the screenshot, the highest tipper of that game will be chosen as the lucky one. He will receive a notification that you have concluded your game and he is the top winner. So, it is very likely that he will come back to your room and expect lots of thanks from you, or a show if you have set up proposal or goals.
