What’s Needed To Become A BongaCams Model
The one major requirement to getting started in BongaCams is that you must be eighteen years old or older. Anyone performing with you must be eighteen years old or older as well. All performers are required to submit digital copies of photo ID in order to get started. This is for age verification and something all adult networks must do in order to stay compliant with federal law.
There’s also some equipment requirements:
Windows is highly preferred, although BongaCams does work on Mac. Most modern PCs or laptops should be able to run the software just fine.
You’ll want an HD webcam, preferably with a good built-in microphone. A higher quality webcam means better shows and better income.
2 mbps upload is the bare minimum. The better the upload speed, the better the shows and the more you make. It’s worth upgrading plans or switching to a different provider if it can provide a better upload speed.
Place To Perform
You’ll also need a place to perform. Most models use the bedroom or a dedicated camming room, but where you perform is completely up to you. Make sure it’s well lit, clean, organized and somewhere you won’t get interrupted.
How Much Do BongaCams Models Make?
BongaCams models make between 4 and 5 cents per token. All models start out at 4 cents per token. Getting to the 5 cents tier is incredibly easy. Not only is it easy, but it’s something that every model should be doing in order to maximize their revenue, anyways.
Here’s what models need to do in order to make the most on BongaCams:
- Upload 3 photos
- Fill out the “About Me” section
- Fill out a schedule
- Complete the wishlist
- Upload at least one video
- Set a profile background
- Set an individual Font
- Fill out the “What We Do On Webcam” section
BongaCams Payout Information
Payouts are made weekly. The minimum payout is $50. The cashout methods include; Check, ACH, FirstChoicePay, Paxum and Wire.
No Chargebacks From Fraud or Identity Theft
BongaCams offers chargeback protection. The adult industry is one industry that is prone to a lot of chargebacks. A “Chargeback” is where someone disputes a credit card claim and the charge gets reversed. Some networks subtract the chargeback from the models pay. BongaCams protects from chargebacks, and you’ll never have money deducted from your account do to reversed payments.
BongaCams Accepts All Genders
BongaCams accepts all genders. Female, male and transgenders are all welcome to perform on the site. Couple and group accounts are also allowed. If you’re performing with a partner, just note that everyone you’re performing with must be verified on the site.
Make Money Offering These Services
BongaCams is primarily a camming site. There are different types of camming shows that performers can offers. There’s also several other ways performers can earn money on the site. Here’s all the different ways BongaCams performers can make money on the site:
Live Camming (And Different Show Types)
The main focus of BongaCams is live camming. There’s different types of shows that a performer can offer, including public, private, group and spy shows. Different show types generate revenue in different ways. Here is information on the different show types available:
Public / Free Chat
The free chat is used for public shows. It’s also used to interact with the members of the site while waiting for someone to start a private show. There’s multiple ways a performer can make money in public chat. Interactive sex toy shows are very popular and profitable. Tip menus, tip games and tip goals can also be used to make money in public chat.
Private shows are 1-on-1 shows between the performer and a customer. Private shows are charged per minute. What the customer expects and the performer is willing to do is usually negotiated before the private begins. It’s up to the user to start the private and the performer has to accept.
Full Private Shows
Full private shows work just like privates, but cannot be spied on (spy shows covered below). Spy shows are charged per minute and go at a higher rate than normal private shows.
Other customers can spy in on other private shows, but not full private shows. When additional members spy in no a private show, that means extra income for the performer. Private shows are charged per minute. If a model is performing on multiple sites (cam-splitting), the model can make money off BongaCams spy shows, even if the private is on another network. This is called “Fake Privates”.
Selling Videos From The Profile Page
In addition to camming, BongaCams performers can also make money from selling clips directly from profile pages. Selling clips is a great way to make extra income, especially since clip sales can be generated while offline.
Get Spoiled: BongaCams Gift Store Feature
In addition to getting paid from camming, members of the site can also spoil you with gifts. A gift icon shows up on every models profile page. This feature will let your fans purchase gifts for you. The icon will direct the user to a mini store where they can make purchases with tokens.
Cam-Splitting and Performing On Multiple Sites
BongaCams allows for Cam-Splitting. Cam-splitting requires the use of special software, and enables performers on multiple sites at the same time. Splitting is generally used by performers doing private chats. The performer is able to remain in public on multiple sites until someone books a private on one of those networks. Doing this gains increased exposure across multiple sites and generally results in more private sessions.
Making More Money From “Fake Private” and Spy Shows
BongaCams also allows performers to make money through one other cleaver trick. If a performer who’s splitting on BongaCams receives a private session on a competing camming site, that performer can go to a fake private session on BongaCams.
While the performer is doing the private show on the other camming site, BongaCams customers can still spy on the “Fake Private” being broadcasted on their site. The performer makes the extra profits from spying in on the show, even though the private isn’t even technically taking place on that site.
There’s other camming sites that support this feature as well. Using splitting and fake privates is an effective way to increase the per-minute rate of private shows and monetize them across several networks. Just keep in mind that if you’re splitting on too many sites, it’ll cause some bandwidth issues. Make sure you’ve got the upload speed to support all the networks being split to.
Regional Blocking: Block Cities, States and Countries
BongaCams offers some of the best regional blocking in the industry. US-based performers will be able to block individual cities, as well as complete states and countries. International models can block specific countries. Regional blocking is available in select countries. If a region can be blocked, it’ll come up on the auto-complete while being typed.
BongaCams iPhone Mobile App
BongaCams has announced their iPhone mobile app. The Android version is expected to get released soon. The mobile app allows performers to broadcast from their phone. This means that a performer can broadcast from just about anywhere. Since the app is adult in nature, it has to be manually installed. The process is simple and is found in the performer dashboard area.
BongaCams Referral Program / Affiliate Program
BongaCams performers can make money from referrals two different ways. After signing up, referral links will be available directly within the BongaModels platform. You’ll have a referral link for new customers (25% revshare) as well as new performers (5% revshare).
It’s also possible to signup for BongaCash. BongaCash is the official affiliate program of BongaCams. BongaCash offers one additional program (pay-per-signup) and has a lot more promotional tools available. With BongaCash, you can even run your own rebranded version of the site, and get a percentage of all the sales that occur on your version.

World-Class DMCA Services
BongaCams offers world-class DMCA services. While other camming sites only submit DMCA takedown notices to the infringing websites, BongaCams goes above and beyond. They’ll get links to stolen content removed from Google, and take even more extreme measures for high-problem sites or webmasters. This helps keep your shows from being recorded and pirated.
