When you’re new to the world of sugar daddies, it can be difficult to get a grasp on all of the different terminology.
There are different types of sugar daddy relationships, along with different methods of payment. PPM actually signifies ‘Pay Per Meet’, and is one of the most common ways that these relationships operate.
If you’re interested in learning more about sugar daddy (see also: Sugar Safety 101: What Are The Risks And Dangers Of Having A Sugar Daddy?)relationships, and the frequency at which payments are made, keep reading, as we take a closer look below.
What Exactly Is PPM?
So, let’s just delve straight into the topic and take a look at what PPM really means.
If you’re new to the world of sugar dating, essentially the sugar baby will receive payment from her sugar daddy based on the frequency of their meetings.
One of the ways in which sugar relationships function is by a payment being made after each meetup, hence, ‘Pay Per Meet’, or PPM.
This is often a method that is adopted by newer sugar relationships, as both parties are still getting to know each other and have yet to establish if they want to make it a long lasting thing.
For a standard meetup, which might include something like dinner and drinks afterward, the sugar daddy should expect to pay around 300 – 500 dollars per meetup.
This price can vary however, depending on where the date is taking place.
Sugar relationships taking place in larger cities will typically have higher rates, as the sugar baby will need to charge more to accommodate the cost of living.
What Are The Benefits Of PPM?
There are some benefits that come along with PPM sugar daddies, for example, if you’re not sure whether you want to delve into a relationship with them yet, paying per meet rather than monthly keeps things casual.
You can determine the frequency at which you want to meet up at, with no requirement to overcommit. It’s also great for sugar daddies who have multiple sugar babies(see also: What Does A Sugar Daddy Really Do For His Sugar Baby? [Plus Alternatives To Cash]).
If they’re interested in having multiple sugar baby relationships, then this means that they don’t need to commit their time and money to one person.
Instead, they can enjoy taking a number of different sugar babies out on dates.
If you, as the sugar baby, find that you want to sever the relationship, it’s also much easier to do this when you have a PPM arrangement.
What Are Some Other Payment Arrangements?
The most popular form of payment arrangements made in sugar relationships is monthly allowances. This includes a lump sum payment that is made each month into the sugar baby’s bank account.
This type of arrangement typically happens when the sugar relationship is exclusive, and well established.
For example, some sugar relationships may start out as PPMs, but gradually become more serious and turn into monthly arrangements, when both parties are familiar with one another.
In terms of how much sugar babies should charge for each meetup, this will again be subject to the area they are located. For example sugar babies living in larger cities will charge more than those living in smaller areas.
The average amount that a sugar baby living in the city will expect as a monthly allowance, will be around 5000 dollars. If living in a smaller area, however, then they will typically charge around 2000 dollars.
What Are The Benefits Of A Monthly Allowance?
Just like there are benefits for PPMs, there are also benefits for choosing monthly allowances as a means of payment.
One of the key benefits of getting paid on a monthly basis is that it’s an easier setup for long term relationships.
Instead of having to go through all the hassle of having to keep track of every individual meetup, you already have a set amount that you’re guaranteed to be paid each month.
It also gives you as the sugar baby the control in terms of date frequency. You can choose how often you want to meet up throughout the month.
What Are The Methods Of Payment?
In terms of how sugar babies collect their money, there are several different ways that this can be conducted. Below is a list of how sugar babies choose to have their payments made.
One of the most popular methods of collecting money, bank transfers are a way for sugar daddies to put money directly into your bank account.
This isn’t recommended for newer relationships, because you need to be 100 percent sure that you trust your sugar daddy before providing them with any bank details.
Another incredibly popular method of payment, simply paying by cash is one of the easiest and safest ways to collect your money.
The reason why it’s such a good method of payment is because it makes sure that you remain completely untraceable.
You do need to make sure that you’re safe carrying it however, as carrying around thousands of dollars in your handbag can be incredibly risky.
If you don’t want to carry around huge wads of cash, but you also don’t want to give your sugar daddy your bank details, you can ask them to make a Paypal transfer.
Paypal transfers ensure that you don’t have to give any personal information away. You will however, remain traceable, as there will be a history of the transaction on your account.
To sum up, PPM essentially pertains to ‘Pay Per Meet’, a popular method of payment for those adopting the sugar baby lifestyle. Sugar babies adhering to this method of payment will collect their cash after each meet up.
There is also a method of payment called a monthly allowance, where the sugar baby is paid a set amount each month for her services.
