Reason(s) for removal: The Camgasm program has closed. Additional info: “On Friday September 29th 2017, Camgasm will be shutting down either temporarily or permanently. We thank you for participating in this experiment with us, and although the beta soft launch did not reach the point of being a self-sustaining community, we very much appreciate the enthusiasm and effort that everyone put into the project. Of course, all members with balances will be refunded, models with earnings will be paid out, and all account information will be properly deleted from our servers. We expect to have all refunds and payouts completed within two weeks. If you have any questions, please feel free to email email@example.com.“
Camgasm is an interesting webcam adult affiliate program that blurs the divide between affiliate, model, and member. Basically this is because any given signup can be any one, or all three, which would also explain why those signups do not initially require email verification or credit card info. This multi-role approach to signups can be good news to affiliates – or bad – depending upon how you wish to view it. While it means that every referred member is a potential competitor for future sales, it also means that there are no sneaky members-area upsells of which promoting affiliates will not be aware.

Affiliates who are fans of Chaturbate will be pleased to note that Camgasm is built upon their chat technology, and the sites are remarkably similar, though with some rather important differences. First, Camgasm has strict rules prohibiting nudity in the free to view public areas. This in itself is nothing new, as many webcam programs have this policy, at least in writing. At present, it appears as if the rule is being actively enforced at Camgasm. We feel that most affiliates should be in support of the rule, as it requires members to pay in order to get to the good stuff. Second, Camgasm lacks the third party ads – we probably do not need to explain how their absence benefits the referring affiliate. Third, while Camgasm offers the opportunity for affiliates to earn up to 40% of referred member sales, most affiliates will never get past the first tier which pays only 10%.
To assist affiliates in their promotion, Camgasm offers many tools, but most of these are of the banner and widget variety. However, it is notable that RSS feeds are available – Featured, Male, Female, Couples, and Trans feeds respectively – though their entry content is limited to the latest screen captures from the model’s streams, and links to those model’s chat rooms. Affiliates will have to provide their own text – though many models provide some degree of bio information which affiliates might choose to make use.
Taken in total, Camgasm looks as if it can be a very profitable webcam program. The site is free to join, with no credit card info required to join – so getting those initial signups should be a snap. From there, it is up to the cam models to convert those signups into sales for you.
