About Streamate

Streamate, based in the USA, is one of the most popular premium cam websites in the world. Streamate is known by many of its white labels, including Cammodels and SexyLadyShows. Despite the site being a pioneer in adult live entertainment, this classic platform has no problem moving with the times. On Streamate you can find thousands of live models online at any time, day and night. These streamers can be anyone from your amateur girl next door to a bona fide porn star. Streamate is one of the market leaders with more than fifteen years of experience. Since 2003, the site has been providing live cam shows and the site continues to grow and expand.


Functions Streamate

Streamate users and models have a variety of options on this site to get the best cam site experience. As a user you will have access to the free Guest chat. The basic level of the site is free for everyone, without registration. Models are allowed to be topless, but can’t show any nudity below the waist. The shows in the free webcam rooms are for a warm-up. When there is contact with the right model it can lead to a Premium chat or Exclusive show.

Besides the free chat you also have the private Premium chat. In this chat, users can join the paid session, with a specific model, and their requests are taken into account. All types of group chats allow users to decide whether their messages are visible in the room, or just the webcam girls. The model determines the price per minute.

The Exclusive chat is a completely private show. The usual price for an exclusive chat is higher than a premium chat. Pricing you can normally find on the models profile.

There are also Gold shows. These are special group shows where multiple members are virtually present. The model determines the length, goal and base price of the Gold show. If you as a fan are interested, contribute during the countdown to the show so that you will be in the show from the moment it starts. If the performer cancels the show before it has started or while it is in progress, the visitors who are attending are not charged. (so a stable internet connection for the model, is advised) 

In addition to the various chat functions, a visitor can also opt for a Cam 2 Cam experience. This is a feature that is only enabled during a private or exclusive show. Cam2cam offers the fan the opportunity to not only see and hear the model, but also vice versa, the model can see and hear the fan. 

Members can also get a discount on premium and exclusive shows, if a model sets up a Gold Club. Being a member of this club, which essentially is a subscription based service, can get the subscribers a discount between 5 and 50 percent. The model chooses the monthly rate and sets the discount.

I cannot say enough good things about SM! I just opened my account in May 2024 and it has been such a blessing. :'-). Very respectful viewers, I make very consistent, great money, support is so incredibly helpful and they will respond within 5 min to my emails sometimes! During my first contest week, I noticed a couple glitches, but nothing problematic. I love SM!!!

For European models the traffic is almost inexistent, if you manage to make some followers in the new tag period than they of course will be pay off but that's also debatable because of the glitches and weekly system updates that are kicking your customers out of your room during the private also. Live support doesn't exists and if you have a technical error you can only send it by filling in a form but they make it very clear that you'll not gonna receive any reply or conclusion. It's a good site but for those whom have patience as a virtue and meditate offten 🫣

Hello Olivia, thank you for your review! I am sorry to hear you had an unpleasant experience with the customer support.
Would you like to provide me more details in a DM or in an email at [email protected]?
It also happens to USA models! Site is so glitchy, and even with good placement often times can’t work or earn!
How about logging in when you haven’t streamed in a month and it saying there’s an account issue, no email sent to you, and they take the stream button away! Sm has gone so far downhill, I just can’t anymore with them!
If there’s an account issue send an email saying what the issue is, or fix your damn glitches so we don’t get messages like this that freak us out and cause us undo distress for no reason!
Lá nunca consegui bater meta de nada, parece que perfil é apagado , vejo outros perfis de brasileiras na primeira pagina e o meu nem sei a onde fica, e o suporte só fala que as pesquisas são feitas mediante a vários critérios para estar na primeira pagina , mas sempre visam os interesses dos usuarios .Esse povo tem que ve que se não houver modelos , a plataforma fecha e procurar o interesse das modelos. Sou mais o CAMERA PRIVE ( mesmo o movimento estando de vagar ) , o IMLIVE ( PAGA DIREITINHO e meta minima relevante) , o VXMODEL ( SUPORTE UM POUCO IGNORANTE, cobram taxa muito alta pelo envio por via
transferência , mas tem trafego ) . Enfim esses ainda são os melhores.
PlayfulJeny wrote a review about Streamate
This site gives out personal information about the models, like the tax number... I think it is very incorrect that while they ask the highest percentage from the models, they even put us in a situation where we have to pay taxes in their own countries. They claim that all sites do this, but this is not true, not even a single site besides them asked me for a tax number! They betray their models, they don't even deserve to work on their site!

Hello Jeny, thank you for your review!
Like I previously mentioned to you, the responsability of paying your own taxes is up to you, we do not force you to do such thing.
However, because of the latest European reglementations (DAC7), we have to declare the payments that we sent out to the performers, if the total amount exceeds 2000$/year.
Every platform that sends payments within the European Union has to declare this, but I am not gonna speak in their name, as it's not my place to do so.
We can discuss more about this on Skype, if you want.
Its not true....only u asked my tax number, other sites no.
Hi Jenny,

We cannot comment on what other cam sites do or don't, we can only comment on what we do. Through DAC 7 we have to report on an annual basis any earnings that have been paid and reached the threshold of 2000$/year. Please visit the official websites to read more about this. Your tax number is required for this, so yes, we asked all our EU partners to fill out this number (in case they haven't upon the sign-up).

It is your responsibility whether you'll pay your taxes or not, but on our side it is mandatory to declare the earnings that have been paid in the EU countries. We are not responsible for paying the taxes for our models and studios.
k8ey wrote a review about Streamate
I've had an account on Streamate for over 2 years. I made great money and never had an issue, until yesterday. I was in a exclusive stream with a new customer, and we were just introducing ourselves when Streamate cut off the stream and immediately closed my account. They didn't give me a reason, and they are witholding $265 USD, as a penalty apparently. I am shocked and so confused. I did nothing wrong, and not only is my account deleted, but they are actually refusing to pay me without explanation.

I would highly recommend working on this site. You always make good money on here most days. But you need to build a fan base first because when it’s very slow which it has many days of those slow days, you make great money from your repeat customers. Starting out if you still make good money without a fan base, BUT you need to put the hours in for sure. To make a living off here you definitely have to work at least 5 to 6 hours a day, 5 days a week at least. Basically full time if you want to make a lot of money. Even if it’s slow I would still stay on because you don’t ever know when you will get a big spender! They do take a big cut and they have contests every month which sucks cause it can become really slow in your room where you don’t make as much. But I prefer private sites than token sites. So that’s why I choose Streamate because I make decent money even after their cut. You need to also be knowledgeable about fetishes on here and it helps if your dominant, that will really make you good money because their is a lot of guys that are into that on here. But if your new to the cam world I would highly recommend starting here and research the cam domination fetishes first before you cam so your aware. Good luck everyone

I been in different free websites but once you meet Streamate u stay in Streamate i meet there the best users i ever had, they a not cheap, they don’t ask for u lower your prices, very polite people, in my experience i had to learn a lot about fetish specially sph, simp, pigs, dom and more, its pretty easy connect with the people there sometimes the traffic its slow but it happens in all the websites like a roller coasted but once u have regulars it will not be a problem
Sadly i have to wait 6 months to be back on sm i was working with a studio and they was not being flexible with my time so i decided to quite and here we go cant wait to be back to the best network service

I can't make a living from it for now, men seem to just want to chat on free chat, I don't respond on free, I like quality chat, which I haven't found here yet. But as many models make up to 200$ a day I'm firm and strong until I build my fan base even if it's difficult

Hi Venus, thank you for your review. I am wondering if you could provide additional info to your rating, like the traffic, payment and software.
In terms of payment, do you encounter any difficulties with the available payment options?
As for the software, do you have any issues that you've been reporting and have not been resolved?

If you're not in touch with Walter already, I will leave his email here - [email protected] and he can help you further to make sure your experience is improving on our site.
We used to do well on this site, until they switched so that instead of one couples account, each of us have to have our own page, and then stream as co-performers... However, for tax purposes the account is in my boyfriend's name, and so the gender says 'male' on the profile -- I'm definitely thinking that we're missing a lot of traffic because of this not saying 'couple.'

Hi! Thank you for your feedback! Can you please share a few words in regards your whole experience with Streamate? Thank you!
Hi ! Sure. I've been working with Streamate for almost 4 years now. Payment has always been on time, support is rather quick and efficient, traffic has decreased over time though, which is why I started working on other sites simultaneously.
The major inconvenience to me is the software, Streamate is always excluded from external applications (lovense app for instance), no C2C when using OBS externally...
I still appreciate working with Streamate overall. I really can't complain about the earnings I'm able to make on there and that's a very good point of course.
I forgot to mention I'm french and a huge part of my traffic is french guys so that might explain why it's lower than my US/UK colleagues?
Also I wish the cut wasn't that high, but you still make good money so...

Their ID verification system in totally bull s***t. I tried verifying my account an my account was blocked they give you a chance to re-upload....they said my ID was fake I provided they with a prove of ID from home affairs they still blocked me. They said they wanted a different government document so I went and did my passport n sent it to them...they still refused to open my account again now they say "the person who opened the account is different from the one who was performing there" which was not true I asked to send me that proof they refused they also stole my money which was reversed by Paxum to them an kept coming up with excuses.

I am a model with 4 years experience on Streamate site .It was the most toxic experience I had in my entire life .The main problem is the trafic . And the second , are the conection issues during the streaming. They do want to make updates and improvements to the site, but they don't succeed. And they try to do that only during their Stupid Contests! My honest advice is to avoid this site!

I have been on for a little less than 90 days. I made a YouTube video better explaining what I made and tips, but overall I like the site. Never had issues with payments and the site is user friendly. Since getting a better webcam o have been getting more traffic. Of course they do take a good chunk of the money but overall it’s been very worth while for me.

I work for streamate for 11 years. There is always space for better, but this is actually the only livesite I've worked on that allows me to make some money every day. Sometimes the traffic is better, sometimes slower, but it is there. The administrators are easygoing, they never bothered me that my equipment had to be better, that the lighting had to be better, that my photos need to be professional. There are certain rules, which you follow and you have no problems. The clients are polite, and if they are not, the site gives you the option to block them forever, which is great. The more hours you work, the greater the possibility of taking serious money. Payment is regular and accurate. That's why I recommend streamate to all models who are thinking about which site to choose, if they want a stress-free job. Because of all these positive aspects compared to other sites, I give this site 5 stars. I believe that we will cooperate well in the future.

Site isn't working good. Besides errors and low traffic and constantly kicked out customers there were periods whith no activity at all, even in privates, I just stopped getting any text from customers sudden and couldn't see if they really are online or no. I only realized it'doesn't work when i asked my regulars to check me and it only can be fixed when you relogin, but you never know if it's working or no unless you ask someone to talk to you.

we all came to this site back when sites were closing and we needed to go somewhere. We all did amazing. onlyfriends i think it was called thats hundreds of us,and some are still there on streamate. Lots of loyal fans and mostly because they pay such a small % to us, we have to charge a lot. Thats why guys go in to private and want you naked right away or they can be super nice and longer shows. It has a ton of traffic but its hit and miss to make money consistently. I love the support i never have issues.

My wife is a mature MILF and does really well on Streamate. It's been very good to her for several years now.

Her clientele is mostly made up of 18-30 year old men and she stays busy all night usually.

I never imagined how many times a woman could orgasm in a night!

Now im still waiting for my payments , they said they are keeping my payments because my id expired , this company is a joke . Please stay away . I have seen a lot of my friends saying their accounts closed for no reason and they keep your money you have worked for for 3 weekz , i thought it was a joke . Guys stay away from this site , i say this because i feel for all girls working hard only for your earnings to be kept by the site. Stay away . If you dont believe me then thats gonna be your problem . Im really disappointed on the unprofessionalism of this site . They are fraudsters , scammers. ,,crooks , thieves .

I was on this site for two years and now I’m back! Well, sort of..I had to re-verify everything and it’s very tedious. Now I’m waiting for my address to be verified and it’s not accepting my payment method! How long does it take now a days?? I loved this site and did well. Now I’m worried how long it’s going to take to verify everything. It never took this long. After reading the comments I’m shocked at the cut! I DO NOT REMEMBER a 70% cut! Is this true???

o site tem limitações até na escolha de como você paga, antes era ótimo, mas muitas limitações entraram em vigor, eu sou brasileiro tinha uma meta semanal que foi crescendo periodicamente, até que acho que os administradores injustos começam a fazer arte, então se o tráfego tem limitações de público, agora sobre os prêmios do concurso ouça sempre with os favoritos, sempre os mesmos e nunca online na hora do concurso.

Awful ,damn frustrated!
the new system of confirming your ID is disgusting. It is impossible to take a high-quality photo with an id in hand, the camera does not focus on the document. it is impossible to fix it, I tried several times and my account was closed. I don't even want to try, you take 70%, absolutely no support for the site models. I've already written a bunch of letters and no one is helping. I see it as simply eliminating unwanted models. my flag is not the usa or britain, I have bad traffic to sit looking at empty chat screens, the streamate is deader than a graveyard. I want to get my money back and do not want to waste time on this site.
