Getting someone to make the small initial commitment to use your Premium.Chat service could open the door to much more, and help you convert prospects into loyal fans or customers.
Why should I offer paid chat services?
People are just beginning to discover the many advantages of charging for chat. Paid chat is a powerful way to make money from your website or social media presence. It’s the best way to communicate one-on-one, in real time, with people who are willing to pay. Paid chat could empower you to monetize everything from professional consultancy to psychic readings; from online coaching to celebrity chat; from technical support to webcam modeling – and much, much more.

We handle all the credit and debit card billing for Visa, Mastercard, Amex, and Discover. No approval process is needed to accept credit or debit cards.

Can I set my own prices for chat?
Yes, you’re free to set your own prices. Our pricing table shows the minimum and maximum fees you can charge for each type of chat. If you want to charge a different amount to our standard billing rates, please contact us.
You can set different prices for text chat, voice chat, and video chat, or for different chat topics. You can also choose to bill your customers on a per-minute or flat-rate basis:
Can I turn my availability on and off, or create a schedule?
Yes, and yes! You can turn your availability on and off manually or create an automated schedule. By creating a schedule, our system will automatically set your availability to online or offline at the times you’ve chosen for each day of the week. You can change your schedule anytime or log in to adjust availability with just a few clicks.
How will I know when someone wants to chat?
As soon as your customer clicks on your Premium.Chat profile or widget, they’ll be prompted to create an account. This process is very easy, and we’ll save their credit/debit card details so they can start future chats with you even faster.
Once they click ‘Begin Chat’, "Let's Talk Now" or "Start Video Chat" we’ll send you an SMS, WhatsApp, or email notification with a special link to premium.chat with the chat request so you can connect. Just follow the link, and you’ll see a pop-up notification showing the topic and price of the chat, and the name of the person's username requesting it. You’re completely free to accept or reject any chat request.
You can accept chat requests from any mobile device or computer. Your customer will be charged a per-minute or flat-rate fee, depending on how you’ve set your prices. You’ll both see a timer showing how long the chat session has lasted. We never give out your phone number or contact details, so customers will never contact you directly on your phone.
What happens if I miss a chat request?
You have 5 minutes to respond to each chat request. If you’re a little late responding, you can send a chat request back to your customer automatically, to let them know you’re now available.
Will you share my contact details with the people I chat with?
No, your personal details (including phone number, real name, email, SMS, and WhatsApp number) are kept 100% secure and confidential. All chats happen through our Premium.Chat platform, and we’ll never give your contact details to the people you chat with.
Is Premium.Chat secure?
Yes, we take security very seriously. All accounts are protected by two-factor authentication. This means you'll never have to remember passwords and will only be able to log in with an authentication code which is sent to your mobile phone number.
How much does it cost to set up and use Premium.Chat?
Setting up your account is absolutely FREE – with no upfront costs or monthly fees. Instead, we simply charge between 20% and 40% of the Chat Buyer fees that you charge your customers. The exact percentage will depend on the value of your monthly earnings from paid chat services. Full details are included in our Terms and Conditions, but, ultimately, the more you earn, the lower the percentage you’ll pay.
Our approach to fees means you can try our world-class system risk free, because we’ll only start charging you once you’re successfully earning money.
How and when will I get paid?
You can choose how you’d like to get paid: By Direct Deposit (US Banks only), PayPal, or Payoneer. The fastest way is generally PayPal which is recommended.
You’ll be paid on the 10th of each month for the Chat Buyer fees you earned the month before. For example, all Premium.Chat requests you complete from June 1st to June 30th will be paid on July 10th.
If the 10th of the month is on a weekend, payout is issued the next business day.
