What is the Chaturbate Token Price?

The Chaturbate token price will depend largely on your spending habits and on how you want to use the site.

If you use the site for only private sessions without additional tipping, it will cost you between 6 and 90 tokens a minute ($0.54 and $8.10). There are plenty of girls to choose from at the lower prices, so you really don't need to look at the more expensive rooms unless you really want to.

If you use Chaturbate as a tip based site, it will depend on the girls you watch and their prices. Chaturbate is technically free, so you never have to tip at all. But, if you want to get any attention in a room with hundreds of other people watching, you better pony up.

Is There a Chaturbate Token Hack?

At present, there is a lot of talk all over the internet about a Chaturbate token hack, but none of it seems to be real. Most of the people who advertise about token hacks on Chaturbate are free users. If there was a Chaturbate token hack, you would expect paying users to be talking about it, not users who have nothing.

If you see a URL posted to a token hack and you want to click it, we seriously advise against it. That's how you get virtual STDs.

What Does Being a Chaturbate Supporter get you?

Upgrading to upgrade to the Premium package removes all ads from the site, enables you to private message any user on the site, and gives you the option to change your font and color in chat.

You also get 200 free tokens, but only for first month of your membership.

It is often the case, that you don't want the models on Chaturbate to know how much you can spend. Just because you have the money of a Dark Purple, doesn't mean that you want the cam girls to be constantly trying to get your money.

    After years of being a Chaturbate supporter, I want to change my username to jassman5. It should not be so hard to do!

      You can change the Display Name of your Chaturbate membership account. This is the name the performers will see. Simply go to the Bio section of your My Profile, and edit your Display Name, then select to Update Bio.

    I have been charged by Chaturbate and the charge was not approved. How do I contact Customer Support?

    • admin

      Just go to the bottom of the homepage and enter into the Support Center.

  • Hishyguyhere

    I recently had a private with a broadcaster who promised to masturbate naked in pvt for a payment of tokens who the did absolutely nothing, no answers or anything! Is there a complaint procedure?

    • admin

      These things happen. You can try contacting customer support and filing a complaint, and see what happens. Or you can just write this on off, and move on to the next.

  • Scorpi56

    I asked a model to be a moderator and she activated that status. To my horror I began being charged the $20 supporter fee without my knowledge. Nowhere does Chaturbate state that Moderators must be a supporter? This is deceptive in my view. Any info on this you can find would be appreciated?

    • admin

      This does not sound right. Models can promote anyone to be a moderator without asking them, but they can't just charge you for something you have not taken an action on. We are guessing that maybe you claimed the 200 free tokens without realizing that you will be charged monthly as a Supporter?

  • privacyINVADERS

    I think you guys need to stop bullshitting around and fucking put it out there that the models can see the viewers desktop or any tabs they have open. Its bullshit. Lets switch it around for a while and not tell anyone! And if anyone brings it up, Delete it off the face of the earth!

    • admin

      It's not true. But to remedy your suspicion, you can signup as a model to see for yourself.

    These tips are really helpful! Things I’d’ve never thought about (as a user, not a broadcaster). Right on about customer (non)support. Once I paid for a private show well ahead of start time, somehow my screen went dark, I reported it (huge mistake!) and for my trouble got banned from that site. Thanks again.

    • admin

      You're welcome!

    Hi I actually have a Question. I have been a user on Chaturbate I guess since the covid and am kind of addicted, recently cancelled my acct because I was using a laptop with a cam that I had disabled and strangely and almost always I was sure that they could see me, which made me uncomfortable. Since switched to other computer desk top as anonymous no cam and it seems the same experience. I am pretty mentally stable so I am baffled. Can you help explain this situation and has anyone else expeirenced it. Thank you could you email to me... John

    • admin

      They can't see you if you're not broadcasting. If you're nervous about it, put a piece of tape over your cam to block it.

  • The Somnus

    Thanks for the information!
