Are you wondering how to make an Onlyfans account? We’ll go through it in this blog post, but first, we’ll start off by telling you what the platform is and its purpose.
Onlyfans is today a well-known platform all around the world, and we’re pretty confident saying you probably already know what it is. If not, it’s a platform that is not limited to but is mostly used by adult creators and performers to sell their content to people interested in buying it.
Onlyfans exploded during the Covid-19 pandemic years, going from 7.5 million users in November 2019 to 170+ million now, whereas approximately 1.5 million of those are creators. The increase in users happened when a lot of people were laid off from their jobs, were home more, felt lonely, and therefore started to look into new ways to earn money or find some sort of company.
There are today a lot of different Onlyfans creators – they might be known in your country for being an influencer or reality star with Onlyfans in the UK, or they might not be known at all. Some of the creators actually choose to be anonymous and not show their faces in the content they post. In today’s blog post, we’ll be going through the steps to create an Onlyfans account – what up- and downsides are there to it? What are the steps to an Onlyfans sign up? And how much can you actually earn by having an Onlyfans account?
To start off, we want to have it said that having your own account does not have to be adult content – it can be everything from you showing off your crochet skills or teaching out cooking courses, which Onlyfans initially was intended for. It’s totally up to you! No matter what you choose to promote, you get to keep 80% of your earnings, no matter if it’s from tips, subscriptions, or pay-per-view messages.
If you’re curious about how much money you can earn per month, Onlyfans conveniently created a calculator where you can get an estimated monthly earning, good huh?!
Set-up your own account
It’s 100% free to join the platform, so you don’t need to be afraid you’ll lose any money; you can only earn. It only takes seconds to create your account, and you can do it here. Note that you need to be at least 18 years old to create an account.
After signing up for your Onlyfans account, you need to add your financial information to be able to earn money and withdraw it to your bank account (which we’re pretty sure you want). You can withdraw money as soon as you have over $20 in your primary balance – meaning it’s been at least 7 days since that money came into your account. Onlyfans processes your balance on a 7-day rolling basis, so if you got a $1 tip on the 1st of the month, that $1 will be available for withdrawal on the 8th of that same month.
Once the financial part is done, you need to verify your identity with a government-issued identification document such as a driver’s license or a passport, plus a photo of yourself next to it. This is in order to keep the platform safe and to make sure that all creators are over 18 years of age. In addition to verifying yourself, you also need to answer a few questions about the content you’re planning on posting, and then you can submit the verification. This usually takes at least 72 hours.
Now to the fun part! When the verification is processed, accepted, and done, you can start setting up subscription prices and start planning your page. Do you want a free page or one where the fan subscribes for a price per month? You can also have both; a lot of creators do. The point of it is to have the free one for teasers, and then fans can there buy your individual content, while as for the paid page, you can choose to post those teasers but in full-length videos. The most important is that you get your content out there and that you frequently post to make the fans want to stay – they need to feel like they’re getting value for their money.
Another good way to make money on Onlyfans is by asking for tips. Even though they don’t get anything in return, you can earn a lot just from being friendly; often, you will then receive it organically because your fans genuinely like you.
If you’re not looking to become a creator, but you’d rather support them by becoming a follower/subscriber/fan, then the sign-up process looks different. You only need to add a credit or debit card that can be used for any paid subscriptions you want to sign up for. Just sign up with a name (free of choice) and a password, and you’re in!
Summary and final thoughts
So, as some sort of ending to this blog post – Onlyfans is a great platform whether you’re a creator or a fan; you can either make money or help and support your favorite creator by being their biggest supporter! If you’re having doubts about people judging you (we know the stigma that Onlyfans has), try not caring, and you do your own thing! Because in the end – who cares what other people do? The platform itself is only showing an increase in users and has no sign of going the other way, so what are you waiting for? Sign up for an Onlyfans account today!
