Chaturbate is Rip-off Report Verified
Ripoff Report Verified™ .. part of Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program.A program that benefits the consumer, assures them of complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business.. aims to offer their customers a broad spectrum of opportunities. Like their competitors, they want to be successful and make money, but what sets them apart from others is that they offer live cam services to a diverse consumer base, including those who may not be interested in using video chat as a source of income. They believe that the public perception about adult sites is that they engage in shady billing practices, or they allow their sites to contain some kind of malware. does not do any cross sales, hidden rebills, or anything of that sort.

When they got started, they envisioned a site that would be free for everyone, but still had the ability to generate revenue without bombarding the end user with up sale requests or shady business practices. They envisioned a market of live cam consumers that engage with other members, creating a better cam site. These type of services are what they work on a daily bases to improve upon.

Their company is constantly evolving their platform. They plan to add messaging to their site; they are constantly improving the video quality and the aspects of chatting. They really value their user and broadcaster base and they listen to their input. They do surveys and are looking to improve their software staff. In the near future, they hope to improve their scalability issues as they grow and improve the chat experience.

They generate a lot of growth for their site virally, essentially people telling people. They also have an affiliate program that pays commissions for bringing on paying members or allowing people to try the site.

In order to set themselves apart from competitors in the industry, they do not engage in shady business practices on the billing end of their company. Their site is 100% free; you only pay if you want to. They strongly feel that they have a better product from others in the industry which includes the quality of the video streams, the chatting experience, and the variety of people broadcasting.

During the interview their team was asked to address specific complaints made on Ripoff Report that dealt with users who were angry about not receiving payments. Jason described a specific situation stating, “A guy contacted us because he had referred an independent performer and he had questions about what he should have received for the referral. The performer he referred did not use the proper affiliate code, so we could not properly track that she had been referred by this man. We were able to fix that and get him associated with the correct performer and he was pleased after that.”

The Chaturbate Team agrees that their most common complaint relates to the payment issue with the affiliate program. The independent marketers are given a wide variety of tools to promote their product, but sometimes link codes are copy and pasted wrong which leads to errors. They work with the marketers and the consumers to fix these issues.

When handling a complaint, their office uses a software stack from sales force called which is a ticketing system. Tickets are answered on a last in, first out basis. They prioritize specific key words so that if someone sends in a message asking about a billing issue, it gets routed to a slightly higher priority division. Essentially, they have a team of people that is responsible for responding to all incoming questions or concerns.

Their office does not capture credit card payments. All such transactions are done through third party payment processors for security purposes. They issue refunds when there are technical issues with the system or services that prevent users from accessing the site or using tokens that they have been issued. If a member is not satisfied with their services and wishes to close their account, they honor that and provide a refund. Being such a large site, they have had problems with unauthorized charges being made to a user’s credit card or Chaturbate account, but they have refunded those cards and are working with consumers to effectively resolve these issues.

When an individual wants to close out their Chaturbate account, their team takes immediate action. They close the users account and delete any photos that would have been visible for that user on prior broadcasts. They make their best effort to erase the user’s footprint from their website.

Since reports were made on Ripoff Report, their company has been working to improve some of their current internal processes and procedures. Jason explained: “The site has been growing pretty steadily for the past couple of years and as the user base grows, customer service has always been something that we’ve had to keep up with and expand upon. We’ve been successful in keeping up with the demand from the site. We have brought on new developers, we’re growing our customer service staff, and we’ve expanded our technical feasibilities to service the market.”

An executive with stated, “I think that one of the things that we’ve done to resolve complaints on Ripoff Report is to reach out and start this dialogue. If you look at the cases, we really do go out of our way to make sure whoever is complaining, is happy. In some cases, we wonder if it is a competitor site because with some people, you really can’t satisfy them. We want this to be a win win, we don’t want people to be unhappy, and it’s not good for our brand. We’re going to do everything in our effort to make things work out.” Jason added, “One thing we are particularly proud of if the fact that we are such a large site and we have such a huge user base and we only have 15 Ripoff Report complaints total. We think that demonstrates that we usually go above and beyond to satisfy everyone’s needs and goals.” is excited to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program.
