How to make money on OnlyFans
OnlyFans has over 1.5million creators, and pays a total of $5billion annually to creators, per OnlyFans.
Making money on OnlyFans requires work and dedication, just like any other content creation.
There are a couple of ways to start earning bucks through the website according to OnlyFans.
First, subscription fees.
By creating a subscription service for yourself, viewers can pay to watch you.
You can go to ‘Subscription price and bundles’ on the ‘Settings’ page.
You can also create paid posts where viewers can pay to view your post instead of subscribing to your page.
You can go to ‘Compose New Post’ and set your desired price.

Teen Wolf icon Tyler Posey also hopped on the bandwagon and created his own page after his fans asked him to.
