New payment options added!

Up until recently, I only accepted Bitcoin (international), Giftrocket (USA), and Interac E-Transfers (Canada). I am proud to announce that I will now also be accepting Paxum (international) and Amazon.com/Amazon.ca Gift Cards (international). Hopefully by accepting these payment methods, I will be able to have fun with and provide my services to even more people!

Paxum

Simply register with Paxum, load money onto your account, and then wait to receive an email request from me in the amount of your order total. All you have to do from there is follow the email’s instructions to send payment.

Amazon.com/Amazon.ca Gift Cards

Due to the fact that Amazon giftcards can’t be used to pay my bills, there will be an additional 20% fee when using this payment method. All rates are listed in USD, so exchange rates will also apply to Amazon.ca gift cards. Examples: If your order comes to $100USD and you choose to pay via Amazon.com gift card, your total will be $120USD. If your order comes to $100USD and you choose to pay via Amazon.ca gift card, your USD total will be $120, which translates to $158.24CAD. Exchange rates fluctuate, so your final CAD total may be slightly higher or lower than what is listed in this example.
For more information on all of my accepted payment options, please check out my Direct Payment Methods Page.
Of course, if none of these direct payment methods tickle your fancy, I still operate through plenty of third-party websites like NiteFlirt.com. You can find the full list of third-party sites that I work through on my Links Page.

Expanding payment options for Canadian sellers/performers

So, a lot of payment options for Canadians kind of suck.

I don’t know if this is something everyone is already aware of and I’m just slow to jump on the wagon for, but I have seen plenty of talk regarding payment methods for Canadians, and I thought I’d provide a potential solution to our woes. I really wish I had thought of this sooner!

As a Canadian, my only option for receiving my earnings from certain cam/clip sites is by snail mail. Last month, my biggest check of the month failed to show up in my mailbox. I was later told that it was returned to sender, because apparently my address wasn’t up to date. The same address they’ve been sending my checks to every month for the past year. Talk about a shitty situation!

I hate snail mail paychecks with a burning passion. I hate the long wait times. I hate the uncertainty. I hate the fact that if a check fails to show up, I have to pay the cancellation fee before they send a new one.

I decided to look into getting an American bank account. Not just American currency, but one that’s actually set up in the US. After a couple quick Google searches, I found that there were indeed banks in Canada that provided that option (TD and RBC – RBC being the better choice, in my opinion).

What happens next is really quite simple:

Through RBC, I set up a couple new accounts, and now this is what I’m looking at:

US chequing account – $4 monthly fee (includes 6 free transactions) Be sure to emphasize the fact that you want a bank account set up in the US, and not just a Canadian account in US dollars. The gentlemen who helped me get set up made the mistake of giving me a USD bank account, so I ended up registering for my American account over the phone

CAD chequing account – $4 monthly fee (includes 12 free transactions)

I can get most of my previously snail-mailed checks direct deposited/ACH transferred into my US bank account, then transfer it to my Canadian bank account via online banking at absolutely no cost.

Bonus: If the exchange rate is shit, I can let the cash sit in my US account until it’s a good time to transfer it to CAD.

Although I don’t know much about US-exclusive direct payment methods (I only use Giftrocket, Bitcoin, and Interac E-Transfer at this point in time), I also like knowing that this could quite possibly open me up to new direct payment methods as well.

The following sites will allow me as a Canadian citizen to receive payments via ACH transfer into my American bank account:

– NiteFlirt.com
– ClipVia.com

The following sites will not allow the aforementioned, as I am not a resident of the US and do not have a social security number:
They do, however, offer wire transfers for a stupid fee. Guess I’ll stick with snail mail for these guys.

– Clips4Sale.com
– iwantclips.com

All other sites that I currently run on luckily offer international sellers/performers the opportunity to receive paychecks via Payoneer or some other equally convenient, non-snail-mail method.

Hate mail

It amazes me to see how awful people are capable of being when they have the ability to hide behind their computers. It’s important to remember that the people you are attacking are still just that – people, and while in some twisted way you may feel better about yourself by putting others down, you need to remember that the effects these insults can have on others can still resonate with them in real life. Anyone who believes it is okay to treat anyone in such a manner does not deserve respect. To the ladies (and gentlemen) who are victim to such attacks, please try and remember that these rude gestures say a lot more about the people sending them than they do about you. Stay strong and don’t let people who are full of hate shut the light out of your own life. Oh, and if you find porn stars/adult entertainers disgusting, dislike them, or disagree with what they choose to do with their bodies, I have a simple solution for you: Don’t watch porn!
