The site does not really have any standout special features. However the features that it does provide are helpful and enhance your live chat experience.User Features

- Top Performers – find top hosts of the day, week, and month all on one page .

The host profiles on Cams247 have very extensive details and give you almost everything you could possible know about the hosts. After reading through a profile you can be sure to find out the information you need to decide if a host has what you are looking for in a positive live webcam chat experience. Profiles include the following information:
- Likes and Dislikes.
- Physical features – height, hair color, body-type, etc.
- Photos of the host.
- Recorded videos if they have any.
- Category of chat the host performs.
All in all, I can't say that the profiles are bad, because they do include the must info, but they're kind of... I don't know... dull? Like, check out this sample, that I have added in a screenshot, since I know how much you all LOVE my screenshots. It's got the facts, sure, but some better design or a more personal touch would also be nice.
Cams24/7 offers you 4 different types of support and you can find each one clearly written with a link on contact information at the top of the Help/Contact page on the website. I don’t mean to seem petty or anything, but 2 of these options – email and Contact Us, are in fact exactly the same and will simply send you off to the Help Form (which I have captured in a well-made screenshot and provided below for you to appreciate). Nevertheless, you do have a few choices regarding how to get in touch with the website and here they are:
- You can contact support by phone at 1-702-289-4116
- Email Support, will just lead you to the help form, as I mentioned. There is no direct email address available.
- The Contact Us link will likewise lead you to the Help Form
- Epoch Billing Support : Click Here!
- Epoch billing support has a special link on the site, so if you run into any billing issues, this is the right address for you.
The website doesn’t offer a separate FAQ page like most other webcam chat sites do. However you can find a list of Account/Membership question and answers along with some general information about the site on the Help/Contact page.
Cams247.com is only available in English and all of the hosts only speak English as well so you cannot find hosts who speak another language.
Pros and Cons of Cams247
Very low private chat costs make this site a great bang for your buck. Hosts take direction well and never deny you what you ask for.
Free chat is only for a limited time if you do not become a member, which is very annoying considering most other sites give you unlimited time even as a visitor. Also you need to become a VIP member to access some features of the site which I also didn’t like. The feature show, for example is only available to VIP members however I would have liked the option to pay per minute if I wanted to. Also it doesn’t have many of the basic features that most other cam sites have.
Although the site doesn’t advertise it, it is actually a predominately Asian host site so if that doesn’t interest you I would not bother checking it out. That being said, the hosts are very friendly and easy on the eyes and with prices being pretty low it is definitely worth the money.
