Cammodels and Camsites...
Cam models can be some of the sweetest girls you've ever met OR they can be the most righteous pain the asses you've ever had to deal with.
In the year I've been online I've had my fair share of rude and entitled customers and clientele but for the most part, I never had another cam model intentionally steal my clients or act catty towards me. All in all, the women I've "met" on social media and online who are fellow cammers have been nothing but supportive, hilarious and inspiring. Even some very famous and well known girls (Destiny Diaz, Housewife Swag, OmfgMeow, etc) have been extremely helpful and I'm forever grateful for their friendship this past year (and hopefully in the future!)
What I don't understand is how some of the girls leaving comments in the forum have been attacking me personally for stating my opinion and experience regarding positive payment options with SkyPrivate.
I WAS OFFERING MY EXPERIENCE! MY OPINION! THAT IS IT.
While they have had their software and payment issues in the past, they have ALWAYS taken care of me and I've always reached out to THEM to make sure my things were being taken care of. Within 24 hours their support team had every issue resolved and followed up. This says a lot about a cam site/network when they can do this on a large scale and make me... the tiny and insignificant cammer, feel like my time and work was valued, even if they were having issues out of their control on their end.
No I wasn't being compensated to offer my input and no I wasn't trying to actively make friends or a name for myself. I was genuinely impressed with how they've handled the situation. I don't think camsite (and models for that matter) get enough POSITIVE feedback and I was merely trying to change things in light of adversity!
To infer I was lying or that my opinion was invalid really does hit me hard because I was sharing my experience and what I thought was amazing work on their part because I know how hard it is to run and manage a business. I can't even imagine the stress and work they're doing in the PR department as well as with models who are angry about this.... and trust me, I GET THE ANGER AND DISAPPOINTMENT TOO.
I've been with other companies who have withheld payment for weeks, months and sometimes, let it disappear all together. For example, Live Jasmin doesn't pay every penny that is earned and those add up over time. A fetish video site tried not to pay me over $200 in commissions ($500 in sales for them) and that was a huge loss for me after a lot of work uploading and editing.
Most recently, PervOut Pay (Instinct Driven Media, LLC) has had payment issues where I am waiting on almost $400 from live cam sessions and custom video orders to be processed and paid from the beginning of January. There is no timeline on their end with only "we're sorry" and "there might be litigation involved" and "we have no idea when this will get resolved" mentality as well.
They have always paid me on time even when their direct deposit and check service was interrupted last year. So I am trying not to hold my breath and instead give them the benefit of the doubt that my money will come through even though I have been burned before. We ALL HAVE BEEN BURNED.
In the meantime, I keep meticulous receipts and records of what is owed to me so that I can use it in the future should I need to but I hope I never have to.
But back to my original point... when I say that a cam site or company is legitimately trying their best to make things right or do what they can do, I MEAN IT! I wouldn't put those things out there if it didn't ring true for me.
The wide range of support help and efforts from camsite to camsite varies so much. Many girls are left in the dark regarding A LOT of issues from member abuse, late payments, software issues, etc. SkyPrivate stepped up to the plate to make sure things were taken care of when they needed to be, at least for me they did, in a timely manner and deserved some respect for that effort.
And yes, I'm grateful not mad anymore. Not complaining about the problem, but grateful they worked with me to get an alternative payment solution fixed so that I could get what I earned. While it obviously is not idea since the fees are higher, I'm happy to be getting paid again.
NOTE: That is regarding the forum post on the SkyPrivate Support Thread.
Alll my love,
