Number of Hosts
There are over 1000 models online at any one time, that is a lot of webcam models available for your own browsing pleasure. Each one is unique in their own beautiful way, and with each group of webcams nearly sorted into various niches, hair colors, orientations and webcam host numbers, it is easy to define your search to fit whatever mood it is that strikes you every time you log on.
Membership is free, but the webcam sessions are charged depending on the type of show being offered. When creating an account, the standard rate is 1 credit per $1, which is a very good price if you ask me. A lot of cam sites charge more. Depending on the amount you purchase, there are different bonuses on offer.Payment Methods
The webcam credits can be purchased in two ways, one by debit cards, or credit cards. The options are indeed rather limited, but at the end of the day, the payment options still cater to most eventualities.
- Credit/Debit Cards:
- Visa Debit
- MasterCard Debit
- Bonus minutes per credit bundle purchased when creating an account.
Types of Memberships and Benefits
As with most webcam sites, there is one basic membership level, and the rest depends on credit purchased with small rewards available at the time of purchase and longer term rewards also in play.
Free membership does what it says on the tin. It is a free membership which means you get access to free shows. This is basically beautiful women sitting around in various stages of undress without revealing anything too much..

The main feature that the site offers is the chance to climb the membership rankings, through gold and silver before finally stopping at Platinum status. Every top up you make is a set number of miles, and the miles are counted to decide which level you are on.

- Compile your own 'favorites' for easy reference on return visits.
The profile / bio pages on HDWebcamShows.com are information yet simple. Each model can decide how of themselves they want to reveal. There are a few standard questions on the right hand side of each bio, and then an 'About Me' section where most models list their show types, turn ons and turn offs. Profile pages include:
- Mini Profile; age, eye color hair color, ethnicity, chest size etc.
- About Me section
- Turn Ons and Offs
Customer support is a poor feature on HDWebcamshows.com. It is hidden within the FAQ section as a link within one of the answers, and when you get there, the only thing you see is a contact form: Subject, Message, Verification code, Submit. There is no phone number or other contact option, and the only estimate for response is 'shortly'. I feel that this is the one section that lets the site down, because without a good backup, people will feel less secure.
The FAQ section is small, but it gets the job done. It offers answers to standard questions like 'How do I do this' or 'How can I watch that.' There is a section about payments, confirming the methods, amounts and securities in place, and a few questions explaining the site's features, such as happy hour and the Top Up Reward Program. All in all, I find it good enough. After all it is a webcam site, the layout is simple, so an over the top FAQ section is not needed.
HDWebcamShows is available in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Indian. The models on the webcams speak many additional languages of course, but these are the 5 the whole site is features by. You can easily change between languages by clicking on the right flag at the top right corner of the screen, as seen on the screenshot below.
Pros and Cons of HDWebcamShows.com
Besides offering access to hot women and live chat being the perfect combination, the guest membership is the best thing about the site, because unlike many other cam sites out there, you can actually chat with the models on HDWebcamshows.com. It is a nice touch and allows you a better understanding of the interaction you can have. It certain made me want to buy credits, and that is the name of the game after all.
Ironically, the free account is the biggest con of the site, because while it is free to make, you cannot view anything other than the payment screen unless you add funds to the account the moment you sign up. It feels oddly like a press gang, forcing me to hand over the money. This is also not advertised. You are simply offered a free account, but really it is just create a username so you can sit and stare at the payment screen until you fork over some cash. It would certainly stop me from returning under normal circumstances..
The site is well maintained, well run and easy to use. Besides the above con regarding the free account, I can find little to count against it. The models are attractive, they meet their profiles and the chance to have a thumbnail preview of the chat show in session is also quite nice as you can have an idea of what you are getting into before loading the full page.
