Can You Really Make Money on OnlyFans

When you go online, you can see all about the many people who talk about how much money they have earned from OnlyFans.

But the question that you may have is whether or not YOU can actually make money on OnlyFans. While celebrities can make some serious money there, the average person on OnlyFans shouldn’t expect to make the millions of dollars that celebrities can earn on this website.

Still, that doesn’t mean you can’t earn a decent amount of money on this website. Reading on, you can learn more about making money on OnlyFans.

How Much Does the Average Person Make on OnlyFans

The average person won’t make $2 million every day like celebrities including Bella Thorne. The average person will make up more of the population of content creators on OnlyFans.

For them, they can expect to make between $200 and $400 every month on this site with an average earning of $180 monthly.

The amount of money that you earn on this website doesn’t entirely depend on the type of content and the quality of content that you release. Let me explain that.

For you to gain subscribers on Onlyfans you need to expose yourself, in other words, people need to see you. I always use the apples example for this.

If you happened to sell apples from your apple tree in your garden, what needs to happen?

Well, people need to know that you sell them, right? So you’ll have to put a sign up: “Apples for sale”.

Still, if you live in a cul-de-sac, not many people will pass by having the chance to see your sign. So you might have to advertise it somewhere else. Maybe your local store, the Church, the school…

Do you get what I mean? No exposure, no selling.

Making Money on OnlyFans

Now that you know about how much you can expect to earn on OnlyFans, it’s time to take a closer look at how you can make money on OnlyFans.

There are a few different ways that you can earn money through OnlyFans, including:


You have the option of setting a monthly subscription paywall for people to see your content. This subscription price will be between $4.99 and $49.99. You also have the option of setting trial periods for people to try your content for free and offering discounts for long-term subscription lengths (such as for 6- or 12-month subscriptions.)

PPV (Pay-per-view) messages

These are normally exclusive content not included in the monthly subscription that you can send through direct message with a price tag. The user will choose to ignore or unlock paying the price.

Referral Programs

If you refer a content creator to OnlyFans, you can also earn some extra money this way. When the person that you refer starts earning money on OnlyFans, you can earn 5% of what they make for the first year, and then 1% until they have earned a total of $1 million. There is no limit to how many people you can refer to the website.


In addition to monthly subscriptions, you can also earn tips on your content. If your fans are extremely happy with the content that you are creating, they have the option to give you extra money through tipping.

There are also additional services that you can offer on your page that you can be tipped for, through the tip bar.

Creating Specifically Tailored Content

Lastly, you can charge a set amount for a specific piece of content that you are offering. This is extra money that you can get in addition to your monthly subscription. Whether this is content that was specifically requested by fans, or you just created something that you thought they would find interesting, this is another way to make money on OnlyFans.


You can really make money on OnlyFans. However, the amount of money that you make can depend on a variety of different factors. The most important one being the exposure you have to the online world.

The more social media platforms you are in and the consistency of posting every day (as well as the luck of posts going viral) will determine your success in getting subscription money.

Once you get subscribers in your page, it is all about the type of content and engagement you offer. Always remember many of the subscribers will look for connection and not only for mere content.
