Make Easy Money in the Adult Webcam Industry

May 29, 2015

The adult webcam industry has taken off in ways that were only imagined ten years ago. When consumers realized that they could download their favorite adult content for free, many thought it was the end of the adult industry. However, some in the industry recognized that the World Wide Web did not mean the end, but it only marked an evolution. First adopters quickly realized that there was a way to gain a larger fan base with less expenses, and an opportunity to connect with consumers in a powerful and personal way. Now with advances in technology, even novices can build and maintain successful adult webcam ventures.

Live adult streaming is connecting consumers to their favorite adult entertainers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, bringing specialized or requested content to consumers who are willing to pay large sums of money to maintain that on-demand relationship. Adult performers have a variety of ways to construct their businesses to fit their needs. Many choose a membership structure where consumers pay a monthly subscription for access to videos or scheduled live content. Others choose to stream live and charge by the minute. In this model, consumers may be able to make requests to the performer or engage in conversation.

These web streaming models have been extremely successful for Cam Companies, like LiveJasmin, which is experiencing record profits due to diversified revenue streams, low production costs, and easy access. The smartphone may be the next frontier for the adult industry. Since smartphones have the ability to connect to the internet, consumers can play videos anywhere at any time, giving them even more control of content delivery and increasing the opportunities for merchants to make more money.

Online payment processors have made getting paid quicker and easier than ever before. Previously, performers had to rely on only a few avenues of payment processing that were expensive as most traditional payment processors charged excessive fees to handle adult webcam merchant accounts and process credit cards. Now online payment processors like Google Wallet, WePay, and PayPal give merchants more direct access to funds, however more than a few adult merchants have told horror stories of funds being frozen or accounts shut down because the processor objected to how merchants made their money.

Despite the success of the adult streaming industry, merchants still are discriminated against because they are considered high risk. Still legitimate alternative payment processors exist like that specialize in adult webcam merchant accounts, and want to help nurture and grow your business.

Having a merchant account allows an account holder to take advantage of merchant cash advances. When a merchant is approved for an advance, the business agrees to receive a lump sum of cash in exchange for an agreed-upon percentage of future credit card sales.

Pricing varies depending on the merchant’s industry, past credit card processing history, the type of business seeking the account, average ticket sales, and average transaction volumes.

Yes, EMB works with merchants who are building their credit, as well as those who have poor credit. EMB also approves merchants that have no credit card processing history and businesses that have lost their merchant accounts due to high chargebacks.

Several factors influence a merchant’s risk level. Though only one factor likely will not get a merchant classified as high risk, a combination of these may: business size, location, and industry, credit score, credit card processing history, a industry’s reputation for excessive chargebacks, a prior history of high chargeback ratios, and whether a merchant exclusively sells online.

Virtual terminals are stationed on a merchant’s website, making it easy for customers to make a payment or purchase online. Merchants or a payment processor can easily set up virtual terminals, so online businesses can accept credit and debit card and e-check transactions.

A merchant account is a business account with an acquiring bank. Without this business account, which actually works more like a line of credit, a merchant cannot accept and process credit and debit card transactions. Businesses need a merchant account to accept major credit cards via a static point-of-sale terminal, mobile card reader, or through a virtual payment gateway.

After filling out EMB’s simple online application and submitting any necessary, requested documents, many merchants get approved within 24 and 48 hours.

EMB specializes in working with high-risk merchants. EMB works with many merchants, including but not limited to businesses in these industries: gambling and gaming, adult entertainment, nutraceuticals, vaping and e-cigarettes, electronics, tech support, travel, high-end furniture, weight loss programs, calling cards, e-books and software, and telecommunications.
