Had to delete my 5 star review and make it 3 Stars
Well I said in my other review how great this app is , it is a great app , most people have something bad to say but for me it was all good up in til recently , about two weeks ago payments stopped going through , they said it was a delay in their system and the money will be deposited within 48 hours and sure enough 48 hours went by and the money was on the card and when I went to withdraw again it was fine , couple days later I tried to withdraw money again and ever since then I been waiting for it. Wasn’t anything big I withdrew $20 but I still can’t withdraw till this day without having to wait forever , I shouldn’t be waiting 2 whole weeks for $20 it’s just unacceptable, I keep getting different stories from Peeks and Berkley payment solutions , responses have been in somewhat a timely manner but it’s all the same answers just worded differently. I have over 2.2 million hearts and more then 24k followers I respect Peeks rules and if I’m doing something wrong and they message me about it I fix it cause I love Peeks and respect their guidelines but this “delay” with our money doesn’t seem right and supposedly only some people got affected by it but from what I’m hearing everyone is getting the wrath of this situation, broadcasters are leaving and going some where else or their messaging me telling me their stories about it. At first they said it should be fixed by Friday and now their saying it will be fixed by the beginning of next week , Berkeley tells me it’s a delay in their system and I should receive funds within 24 hours and Peeks is telling me it’s a delay in their system and it should be fixed by the end of the week or early next week , so I’m not sure what’s going on but I make good money on here and so does Peeks because they take their platform fees which is understandable but somethings not right here with payments , we can’t even withdraw to paypal anymore from what I heard. I message them everyday to give an update and find out what’s going on and they make me feel like their angry with me for doing so , we just want the virtual card to be back in good standing like it was , I never had an issue with the virtual card till now , I don’t want people to leave Peeks and then there’s no one to watch my streams anymore. I have A amazing fan base and they don’t even want to tip cause Peeks hasn’t paid anyone. I’m not downing Peeks because like I said in the beginning of this review they were doing good , updating and fixing things , customer service got better but now this , once this is handled and IF everything goes back to normal I will gladly put my 5 star review back up but until then I’m giving it 3 Stars
All you need to know about peeks
This will be as honest a review you will get. I have been on this app for 1 year. This is a great app to make money. Here are some important things to know:
1. You will have to follow by their guidelines which are no stricter than other apps you will cam on. If you break the rules, they give you more than enough warnings before they ban you. It will cost $20 to reinstate your account. Follow the rules and you will be fine.
2. Sometimes when too many people give hearts at once it freezes the broadcast. This is annoying because if you have 100+ people watching you, it kills the broadcast. This is not an internet issue because I have 88mbps download and 93mbps upload broadband speeds. Which are considered pretty fast.
3. You are paid based on your rating. So the higher your rating the less they will take from you as the platform fee.
4. Most importantly is payout... this is the most tedious part of the app. They are notorious for delaying payments. When you ask them what’s going on it’s a copy and pasted response. This is an on going issue (current issue even today) very rarely have I been paid within what they call the payout period. They don’t send out newsletters to tell you they are having issues with deposits. which makes us all feel they are hiding something or trying to keep our money. With that said, No matter how long it takes (sometimes months) I have been paid every single penny I’ve withdrawn.
Bottom line, don’t rely on this app as a main source of income because of the delays and payout issues you never know when u will get paid. just know that you WILL get paid.... If you’re any good at this kinda thing you will get paid A LOT ;)
Pissing me off
They get on you for every little thing that you do and then now I’ve been waiting over a week for my money to hit my card They seem to have some sap of a glitch in their system that they have been supposedly working on me and my family is hungry and they’re holding my money
Terrible RIP OFF SCAM
I installed this app in hopes that I can make some extra money to pay off some bills. Well let me just warn you this app charges you a larger platform fee that other apps do not. So aside from giving them a percentage of all your tips and money you make thy also just recently removed PayPal as your payment method. Right when I wanted to cashout they emailed me and told me they are no longer allowing anyone to cashout cus PayPal. The only option is using their STUPID RIP OFF peeks debit card which they also charge you a fee to even use the card!!! I was cashing out 69$ and thanks to using the card I was only able to get 55$ !!!!! THEY KEEP ALL THIS MONEY AND THEY PURPOSELY NO LONGER ALLOW ANYONE TO CASHOUT VIA PAYPAL OR TRANSFER TO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT! Your honestly better off on another app. I will be uninstalling this app I refuse to make them money because I only keep the scrapes! Definitely not worth it this app is now basically pimping people out. With you taking home the very least small percentage. I will be moving to uplive or cake or bigo.
Escorts trolling for clients and strippers for money.
Shady, sketchy, unprofessional
I have been broadcasting on this app for about six months and have around 25,000 followers. While I can say I definitely make a decent amount of money using this app, their community guidelines and customer service are TRASH. I have had multiple issues with their customer service and management reps. They have taken down many of my streams for what always seems to be no reason, as I always make sure to abide by their guidelines. However, they always email me back with some absurd new guidelines that ARE NOT in their community guidelines. Resulting in them stealing and keeping earnings from me. How are broadcasters supposed to feel comfortable using this app when there is no security in following guidelines?
Along with their inconsistent guidelines, they are extremely shady when it comes to payment. They have a history of keeping earnings from broadcasters (to this day they still refuse to pay me at least $60), and taking WAY longer than their ETA.
Overall, the only good thing about this app is the lack of competition with other broadcasters as it’s still a small app. But the unprofessionalism and sketchiness around the entire app just isn’t worth it. Save yourself the trouble and broadcast through another streaming app!
Trash app deleting free 2 days use
Coming from a customer and user.
I gave this 3 stars I wanted to give this 2.5 but wasn’t possible, but the reason I’m here isn’t to discredit the app it’s a nice app competing with periscope but somethings just don’t need to be there. 1.The screen fading away and disappearing on paid stream is absurd especially with the price of coins. I feel it should just be atleast 50% visible seeing as you don’t have the luxury to type and when you type your not
Guaranteed what you ask for. 2. The price is a stretch but I guess I can understand it, you want some kind of profit off the app but Jesus...atleast make it reasonable ex: 500 coins for $5, that way with the amount of people on this app it will make people want to spend money and then you can take 65% of the profit. There is more but aren’t major problems the ones that really made me give this a low score was the first 2 if you would please consider doing as I put or something close to it I guarantee the apps usage will go up seeing as people are getting tired of periscope
Ahead of the curve
Awesome app, awesome business plan. More influencers need on this as they’ll bank.
It’s hard to access private messages. And it should be a folder or some sort of gallery where all bought streams are stored
