Once you buy tokens you become a Gold member. This is a lifetime level and even if you never purchase tokens again, you remain a Gold member. Benefits include among other things unlimited video and chat access, the ability to open a cam in freechat rooms, as well as the option to adjust the live video window into a full screen view.

Your membership level increases, with each tier giving more advantages. The major perk you get in each level is that you're placed higher up in the model's chat room and have an icon next to your name indicating your status in the program. Models give a lot more attention in their free open cam chat rooms to those users who have higher status in the program.
