Pay Per View (PPV)

Pay per View capabilities include features to pay for video chat (per minute, per webcam room access, per certain features or access mode), pay for items (videos, pictures, online store), pay for membership (that enables access to webcam rooms, videos, pictures) and other paid content/service options.

How does this work?

Users can register on site as different roles (customizable): performers (provide the paid services/content), clients (want the performer items), studios (manage multiple performers).
Depending on site theme roles can be labeled as teacher/student, broadcaster/viewer, therapist/patient, consultant/client, artist/fan or other titles.

Plugin implements pages for specific functionality: live webcams, performer dashboard, studio dashboard, webcam page with videochat room.

Performers can start live webcam rooms and clients can see list of live webcams with snapshots on an site page. Performers can also checkin other performers when starting a session (if multi performer group session is paid, payment is split to all performers checked in).

Private Show PPM (Pay Per Minute): Client goes to selected performer’s room (public chat with live perfo
rmer video) and requests a private show with the dedicated, simple to use Show button.
If performer accepts, performer hides from public chat and goes with client to private chat for a paid private show. Client gets charged per minute after a configured grace period. Cost per minute is configured globally by admin and performer can configure own custom CPM (if enabled from settings).
Performer can also reject requests or toggle his status to reject all requests automatically or hide, depending on videochat interface.

Group PPM (Pay Per Minute): Performer can also start room in paid room mode. All users that enter get charged per minute after a grace time. Group cost per minute can be seen in listings and in room when accessing.
Admins can define multiple custom room modes (ex: free, paid, special) with different cost per minute and enable special user modes (2 Way mode, Voyeur mode).

Clients fund their site wallet with tokens/credits by purchasing with real money and spend on site for pay per minute, tips. Performers get commissions (a configurable ratio of amount spent by clients) into their site wallets.

Pay Per Minute Videochat: Group, Private, Voyeur, 2 Way

Solution allows performers to broadcast group or private live pay per view (PPV) shows incorporating video, audio, and chat.

Private shows can be started on request in room and are 2 way. The pay per minute (PPM) rate for private shows can be configured on a per host basis between limits set by administrator (minimum and maximum cost per minute).  Administrator can also disable this feature and configure a default cost per minute (CPM) for all private shows.

Administrator can also set custom CPM for each performer by quick editing webcams from backend.

Solution also allows configuring a grace time, meaning a number of warmup seconds provided for free before paid show starts.

For group paid modes, administrators configure different room modes with custom cost per minute. When going live, performer can select desired mode (and cost per minute) for options list. Admins can also configure special user modes (2 Way mode, Voyeur mode) with custom cost per minute in group mode. 2 Way is available on certain interfaces where a limited number of users can also start webcam for performer to see them. Voyeur mode is for clients to watch live video secretly, without participating in chat room.
During group and private videochat, clients can also send tips (gifts) to room performer.

There are multiple billing options and settings, paid items.

Billing (Tokens/Credits)

Clients can prepay credits (tokens) that show in a site wallet and can be used anytime later in chat to pay for private shows per minute, send tips to performers or access paid content. Tokens can be used for services from different performers and content from different owners, anytime after deposit.

Payments (real money) go into accounts configured by site owner, setup with billing gateways (like Paypal, Zombaio).

Solution is able to work with 2 credit wallet plugins: myCRED  and TeraWallet (WooComerce gateways wallet / WooWallet).

Any or both can be used, as necessary. In multi wallet mode, an active wallet can be chosen for videochat activities and tokens can be transferred manually or automatically to that wallet.

Clients spend credits (tokens) in pay per minute private shows or by sending tips to performers or to buy various items.
Performers receive amounts of credits in their site wallet depending on backend settings (can receive 100% or lower commissions).

Pay per Minute, Room, Membership, Video, Picture

Users can spend credits (tokens) in multiple ways:

  • pay per minute private shows (on client request in room)
  • pay per minute group sessions (initiated by performer and clients join)
  • tips to performers (anytime by clients in room)
  • access to paid site content (webcam rooms, videos configurable with myCred Sell Content addon and Paid Membership and Content plugin)
  • premium membership (membership roles that can be subscribed with Paid Membership and Content plugin). Content can be restricted to certain membership: webcam rooms, videos, pictures, pages (that could list the membership content).
  • online store items (WooCommerce, MarketPress, WP E-Commerce, Events Manager integrated with myCred Gateway addon)
  • transfers to other users (if enabled with myCred Transfer addon)
  • withdraw (especially performers) with the premium TeraWallet (WooWallet) Withdrawal addon (developed by TeraWallet providers) per their Withdrawal documentation (Paypal, Stripe, Bank).

MyCred and WooWallet are 3rd party billing plugins that have own providers, developers, premium extensions and support and can be used as necessary.

Payouts / Withdrawals

Webmaster can see balance for all users and adjust as necessary (in example when making payouts to performers manually with a method of choice).
Webmaster can define administrative records, fields to request details from performers including payout method. These administrative records show when approving users and reviewing records is accessible from users list, same as adjusting balance with myCred or WooWallet.
There is a premium plugin for TeraWallet (WooWallet) Withdrawal (developed by TeraWallet providers) that can be used on some projects per their Withdrawal documentation to withdraw with Paypal, Stripe, Bank.

After licensing original solution our developers can also implement custom tools for payouts, depending on requirements or implementation of different credit management and purchase plugin.

Adult Content & High Risk Billing Processing

Category of billing required depends on each site’s content and policies. This solution can be used for projects in all categories as it provides features, not content.
Payment processing card associations define some online business types and industries as risky. Main reasons can refer to merchants’ ratio (both real and anticipated) of chargebacks, merchandise returns or your payment processing history. Types of content that may be considered high risk: adult content, dating, online gaming, prepaid phone cards, money transfer, forex, crypto exchange, travel, nutraceuticals, health and wellness products.

Adult and other high risk related sites should also support cryptocurrency gateways for clients that want more privacy. Options can include most used cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, ethereum, xrp, bitcoin cash, litecoin, binance coin, eos, monero, stellar, tron, cardano, dash, neo, iota. These payments can be handled with 3rd party automated processors or manually by setting up wallets for P2P transfers.
