Anyone looking to become a cam girl will sooner or later start streaming on Chaturbate, one of the industry’s top players. If you’re just finding your way around the platform, it’s natural to wonder about the Chaturbate payout and how to get paid on the site.

Luckily, we’re here to answer all your questions, including:

Strap in, and let’s get to it!

What is Chaturbate and How Can You Get Paid on It?

At its core, Chaturbate is a camming platform like any other. As such, it lets you earn by doing different types of sexy streams for a horny clientele from all over the globe.

What separates Chaturbate from other similar sites, though, is its reach. Namely, it’s the sixth most popular adult platform in the US with over 458 million monthly visits.

All these horny guys and gals want the same thing: to watch a cam model put on a lewd show just for them (or a few thousand others, but who’s counting).

The platform offers several ways to make money, including:

  • Public shows — anyone can join and pay you via tips
  • Private shows — arranged between you and one viewer who pays by the minute
  • Spy shows — private shows that others can peek at by paying (per minute)
  • Selling nudes and sex tapes

Now, when we say pay, we’re not actually referring to money. Like all camming platforms, Chaturbate has its own currency — tokens — which viewers can buy.

They then use these tokens to tip you during public streams, pay for private or spy shows, or purchase pics or videos.

Each token costs a viewer about $0.10, although buying them in bulk does bring the price down a bit. For example, 100 tokens are $10.99, but 750 tokens go for $62.99 — around $20 cheaper.

As a model, you sadly won’t get to convert a token’s full price into money, as Chaturbate also takes its own pound of flesh: 50%, to be exact. So, each token you get will translate to around $0.05.

How to Initiate a Chaturbate Payout

If you’re hoping for a quick payday, it’s time to hit those breaks, because you can’t actually request a Chaturbate payout.

Instead, the site pays you based on the schedule you set up. We will cover that process later.

However, before you can see your balance and get paid, you’ll have to convert your tokens to a real-world currency.

The process is simple. After logging in, go to the Broadcast Yourself option in the main menu, then select Token Stats.

There, you’ll see your token balance and how much is available for conversion. You can convert all your tokens or type in a specific amount you want to make available for withdrawal.

Once you choose the amount, just follow the instructions on your screen, and your balance will be updated when you’re done.

It’s important to note that you will have to convert your tokens before every payout. That is to say, Chaturbate won’t do it automatically.

You will need to repeat this process every time you want to get paid. Then, according to your selected payment schedule (explained later) Chaturbate will send you your funds via your preferred payment method.

Speaking of choosing a payment method — let’s shed some light on how to do it.

Setting Up Your Chaturbate Payment Method

No matter which Chaturbate payout method you pick, Chaturbate will ask you for the same set of data beforehand.

That data includes your:

  • Full name
  • Full address (street, city, state, country, postal code)
  • Signature

To provide it, go to Broadcast Yourself > Token Stats > Payout Information, and fill out the form there. Alternatively, you can visit it by clicking here.

Right below the section with your info, you’ll have to select your Chaturbate payout method, enter the name of the person getting the money (you, presumably), and submit your signature once again.

Of course, depending on the payment method you go for — there will be more on those later on — Chaturbate may ask for some additional data. Examples include your bank info, your Cosmo or Paxum account, and so on.

Fill all of that out, and you’ll be ready for your payout! And if you ever want to change your payment method, just follow these steps again.

How Often Can You Get Paid on Chaturbate?

The platform offers two payout schedules:

  • Bi-monthly
  • Daily payouts

We’ll touch upon both below.

Bi-Monthly Payouts

As their name suggests, bi-monthly payments happen two times a month. They’re an option that anyone on the platform can go for and that most models use since it is automatic.

The platform has two payment periods: the 1st-15th and 16th-31st of each month. They usually send out money within 7 business days of a period ending.

So, you can expect to get paid around the 7th and 23rd, every month. However, these dates vary if you request to receive checks via mail (explained later), as shipping can take longer than a week.

It’s also important to mention that you can only receive payments when you reach the minimum threshold of $50 (1,000 tokens) earned.

If you don’t manage that within a single payment period, the tokens will simply transfer to the next one until you make those 50 bucks. As you might imagine, this will become less and less of a problem as you gain a fanbase.

Again, even though the payment is automatic, you will still need to manually convert tokens to money before the payment period ends. Only the funds on the real-world currency balance will be paid out.

Daily Payouts

Now, if you’re a little less patient, you can also get paid daily. But for that to become an option, you will have to satisfy certain conditions.

For one, you will need to complete at least two regular (bi-monthly) payments if you’re from the US. If you’re from elsewhere, you’ll have to complete four.

In other words, you need to be a creator for at least one or two months and make more than $100 or $200, depending on your location.

Next, you will have to reach certain minimum transfer amounts to withdraw your money. For withdrawals to your bank or via Paxum, Cosmo, a check, or EFT, that number is $20.

And if you’re using wire transfer, the minimum amount you’ll need is $500.

Lastly, Chaturbate itself will also take a small fee if you choose to get daily payouts; $3.95 per day, to be precise.

Long story short, this option is only viable if you make a lot of dough on Chaturbate every day. Otherwise, it’s more trouble than it’s worth.

If you are in the big-gun club, though, just convert the amount you wish to withdraw, go to the Token Stats page, enter the aforementioned amount, and click Submit Request. Your money will be sent the very next day.

With the technicalities out of the way, let’s tackle the payment methods you can choose from.

Chaturbate Pay: 8 Methods You Can Use

Working as a cam model might be enjoyable, but it’s still work. To help you cash in on your efforts, Chaturbate supports 8 different payment methods.

Let’s take a look at each one.

Direct Deposit (US Only)

If you live in the United States, Chaturbate can transfer your payments directly to your bank account.

This method is quick and comes with no additional fees. You can expect the money in your balance in just a couple of days, granted that your bank doesn’t take too long processing the transaction.

If you want to go with this payment type, you’ll need to provide Chaturbate with the following additional info:

  • Bank name
  • Bank account type (checking or savings)
  • Account number
  • Routing number

However, if you’re not a US resident, direct deposits may not be an option. That’s not a problem, though, as you’ll still have plenty of other withdrawal methods.

Check via Mail

Requesting checks via mail is your second payout option. There are no territorial restrictions, meaning that you can get your money this way in every country in the world.

But as we already mentioned, you may have to wait several weeks before your checks arrive. So, if you need a quick payout, this is not the best method for you.

Also, before you pick this option, make sure to clear it with your bank. Depending on where you live, they may not accept USD checks, so it’s best to ask.

If your bank approves, the two carrier choices you have are USPS and FedEx. Pick one based on shipping fees and where they’re willing to deliver.

Namely, USPS delivers checks all over the world with no fee. But the catch is that you may have to wait more than a month to get it.

FedEx, on the other hand, is much quicker. However, it also has a $40 processing fee for the States and an $80 one for international orders.

Wire Transfer

Similarly to a direct bank deposit, a wire transfer ensures that all your funds end up in your bank account. The main difference is, the latter is quicker and usually reserved for heftier sums.

On that note, you’ll need to earn at least $500 (10,000 tokens) to be able to get paid via wire transfer. Plus, Chaturbate will take a $45 fee for the transaction.

In short, this method is good if you’re already a big Chaturbate star and are making fat stacks on the daily. But if you’re a newbie and don’t have much clout, it won’t be a useful option at all.


Paxum is a tried-and-true payment system for adult industry professionals, servicing anyone from webcam entrepreneurs to cam girls. It is safe, efficient, and easy to connect with just about any platform out there, including Chaturbate.

To open a personal account, you will need to provide your:

  • Name
  • Address (and proof of address)
  • Date of birth
  • Phone number
  • Nationality
  • Email address
  • ID photo

Paxum will take up to 24 hours to set up your account. Once they do, you’ll be able to link it to your Chaturbate profile in the Payment Information section.

The processing fee for Paxum is incredibly affordable at just $0.50. Plus, the service is super convenient, as it allows you to transfer your money to your bank account or directly use it via a Paxum card.

A note for UK cam girls: For some reason, Paxum lumps the UK together with EU countries and only offers payouts in Euro there.

So, your money will first be automatically converted from USD to Euro, and then you’ll be paid out in Pound Sterling. As a result, you’ll lose a bit of dough during the conversion.

Cosmo Payment

Cosmo Payment is pretty similar to Paxum, but it is available in a smaller number of countries. That being said, European cam girls make the most of its user base.

What makes Cosmo stand out, though, is that it has no issues with Pound Sterling. So, it’s no surprise that it’s the most popular payment option in the UK.

The withdrawal fee is $1 for bi-monthly payouts. As for daily ones, the minimum amount you have to earn is $20, while the fee is $3.95.

Just like Paxum, this service will need some of your data:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Date of birth
  • Phone number
  • A clear pic of your ID or passport
  • The link to your Chaturbate profile (or any other site that you’ll be linking the account to)
  • Your bank account details

Once you submit everything, you should get a response within 48 hours. Then, just choose Cosmo as your preferred Chaturbate payment method on the Payout Information page, enter the number they send you, and you’ll be all set.

Canada EFT

In case you live in Canada, the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) payment method will be your best bet. It’s basically a direct transfer between two Canadian bank accounts.

As such, the transaction comes with no fees, and it’s over quicker than your first time getting frisky.

To set it all up, you’ll have to type in your bank details into Chaturbate after choosing this payment method. After that, you’ll be good to go.


Skrill is a digital wallet that you can connect to your bank account and use as an online payment tool. It’s also a great way to receive your Chaturbate payout, especially if you’re from Europe.

Namely, the transfer from Chaturbate to your Skrill wallet is instantaneous. So, you can access your money pretty much immediately if you get a Skrill card or pay online.

However, transferring the funds to your bank account could take a few days, as usual.

If you want to use this option, you’ll have to provide Skrill with the usual culprits: your bank details, address and phone number, as well as a photo of your ID.


In an effort to stay in touch with the newest trends, Chaturbate has recently allowed viewers and creators alike to pay and get paid using cryptocurrencies.

This payment method is unique in that it sidesteps banks and exists only in the digital world. In other words, it is the best option in terms of anonymity.

However, the method isn’t that reliable, especially when you take a look at how cryptocurrencies tend to fluctuate.

While these fluctuations can make Chaturbate pay you a lot more than it usually would, the opposite can also happen. It all depends on the exchange rate at the time of the payout.

For example, you may take a peek at the rate using this site, see when it’s convenient, and convert tokens for your Chaturbate payout.

However, the rate might change several times until the platform actually pays you, resulting in a completely different sum than what you’re expecting.

Long story short, if you like gambling, crypto is your #1 option. To use it, you’ll need to create a crypto wallet ID, such as this one.

You can find detailed instructions for the process here. Once you make it, just connect the wallet with your Chaturbate account, and you’ll be one step closer to accessing your earnings.

Are Chaturbate Payments Discreet?

If you’re wondering whether Chaturbate’s payments will remain hush-hush, don’t be. The website’s name will not be shown on any of their official payment documents.

Instead, you’ll be receiving payments from MultiMedia CB payments or Multimedia LLC. That way, you won’t have to worry about your little secret being blown — if it even is a secret.


Now that you have all the info on how to get paid on Chaturbate, it’s time to start streaming. Give your audience something to reward you for, and watch as your balance skyrockets!
