Affiliates Can Promote Streamate Through CamBuilder – Streamate made an announcement that CamBuilder affiliates can now promote Streamate directly through the platform. Previously, CamBuilder was only a whitelabeled site builder. Affiliates were still able to promote Streamate through their legacy program, Money Tree. But just recently, Streamate stated Money Tree was no longer accepting applications. Now affiliates wanting to promote Streamate can do so through CamBuilder.
Clips4Sale Launching Improved Search Functionality – Clips4Sale announced that they’re improving the search functionality on the site. The new search will make it much easier for members to find the type of content and studios they’re looking for. Neil will be showing off the new search feature in an upcoming webinar that will be geared toward Clips4Sale’s customer features.
Clips4Sale Launching Site-Wide Discounts – Clips4Sale has also announced the launch of site-wide discounts. Clips4Sale will be able to offer savings across the entire site, while C4S stores don’t lose out on money. While a site-wide discount is in effect, stores will still earn as much as they would off the full price sale. The discount will come out of Clips4Sale’s percentage.
Clips4Sale Launching Clip Bundles – Clips4Sale has also announced they are launching a clip bundles feature. C4S studios will be able to bundle multiple clips together and set the price for the entire bundle. This allows the stores to offer discounts for buying the entire bundle.
New Clips4Sale Series: Clip Zone with Neil – Last but not least, Clips4Sale is launching an entire new feature, The Clip Zone with Neil. This new series will be a 1-on-1 with an individual studio and Neil. They’ll be discussing a wide range of things from Clips4Sale to the industry in general. Any Clips4Sale studio can apply to be part of the series.
ManyVids Custom Content Now Permanently 80% – During December, 2018, ManyVids was running a special on custom content requests. All custom content percentages were bumped up to 80%. ManyVids has announced that the customs are now permanently at 80%, making them one of the highest percentage custom content platforms on the market. ManyVids also took a jab at iWantClips (without calling them by name) and their advertised 100% on custom content.
ManyVids Raises MV Tube CPM – Gets Caught “Skimming Views” – ManyVids has announced that they’re raising the MV Tube CPM from 60 cents to 67 cents. This means that MV Stars will earn 67 cents for every 1,000 collective views from all their MV Tube content. Bella French also stated that now all views will roll over to the next month. it was revealed (to the shock of the MV Community) that the views weren’t rolling over to the next month. So performers would get paid for each 1,000 benchmark that was made, but anything over x-thousand wouldn’t be counted towards the next thousand. The lack of transparency and not getting compensated for all views caused some controversy in the MV Community.
JustForFans Adds “Patreon Style” Tiered Pricing – JustForFans has added a new “Patreon-Style” tiered pricing functionality for fanclub subscriptions. JFF models are able to set the price and the perks for each pricing tier, as well as apply custom names to them. When uploading new content to the site, JFF models are able to indicate the lowest pricing tier that should be eligible to receive the content.

Now CamLust models can earn $25 for each new performer they invite to the site. CamLust models can also earn a 5% bonus from all customer referrals. The bonus is applied to all shows purchased from the referring model, and not for the shows purchased from other performers.
Mainstream Porn / Camgirl Crossover Stars – This is a new piece of content that we put together listing the various crossover stars. More and more mainstream performers are firing up the webcam, either instead of mainstream shoots or in addition to mainstream shoots. This is an ongoing piece of content that will be added to over time.
