2. Customize Your Profile
Once you have created your OnlyFans account you will be sent to the “Edit Profile” page where you can customize your profile.
The first thing you need to do is set a username and display name for your OnlyFans account:
a) Profile Picture: You should look to use the same profile picture that you have on other social media profiles. It will help your social media followers to find your profile easily. But, you can set a different picture as your profile picture as well if you like it.
b) Header Image: A good header image will make your profile stand out
c) Your Bio: Use this part to explain the type of content that you will provide to your subscribers. Also, inform them how often you will be posting on OnlyFans. Remember, your bio should be short and crisp giving all the information your subscribers need to understand your work.
Under the “About” section you have:
- Location = You can add your location here.
- Website URL = If you have a website you want to promote to your fans, add the URL here.
- Amazon Wishlist = If you have an Amazon wish list, insert the URL here.
- Spotify Account = You can connect your Spotify account here by clicking on the “Connect” button.

3. Add a bank account to earn money
Submit your personal details
1. Submit your personal details and ID for approval by OnlyFans.
To start earning money as an OnlyFans creator you need to submit your personal details for review, once the OnlyFans team have reviewed and approved your account, you’ll be able to add your bank account.
You can also add your bank details by clicking on the profile icon in the top right corner. This will open up a side menu, on this menu click on “Add Bank (to earn)”.
On the next page add your country of residence and click the age verification circle to confirm that you are at least 18 years old. Once you are done, click on “Next”.
On the page after this you need to add your personal information:
- First name
- Last name
- Post/Zip Code
- Date of birth
You can also add your Twitter and Instagram account names, but these are optional.
Below your personal information, you have to upload a government-issued photo ID. Under “Document Type” click and choose the ID you want to upload, you can upload the following ID types:
- ID Card
- Driving Licence
Next you need to upload a photo of the ID itself and a photo of you holding the ID next to your face.
Once you are done, the “Send for approval” button should now be blue instead of gray, click on it to submit your details. It takes 48 hours for your account to get approved.
Once your account has been approved you should receive an email from OnlyFans confirming the approval and letting you know that you can now add your bank account and set your monthly subscription price.
4. Set the Subscription Rate
So, as you have already got your profile ready on OnlyFans, it is time to set your subscription rate.
Log into your OnlyFans account, click on the profile icon, then click on “Add Bank”, this will take you to the banking page. The default payout method is Direct Transfer through ACH
Your income will largely depend on how much your subscription price is and how many subscribers you have. You can charge as low as $4.99 and as high as $49.99/month but most models charge around $9.99/month. One tip that I can give you is to be realistic but don’t sell yourself short!. You would not want to charge so high that most of your fans struggle to subscribe but you also don’t want to be too cheap. If you want to attract a large fan base for your content, it is better to start the journey with a reasonable subscription price.
What I really love about OnlyFans is that I get 80% of the money I earn which is a large portion compared to their competitors. Also, the platform is always evolving and adding new features hence allowing models to make more money.
5. Promote Your OnlyFans Profile
The easiest way to promote your OnlyFans profile is through your existing social media profiles. Twitter is best when it comes to promoting adult content since its terms and conditions are a bit more accepting of the adult industry. The more you promote – the more subscribers you’ll get, and easily make a 4-figure income each month.
6. Content Planning for OnlyFans
Always remember that your subscribers will be from your social media platforms ie Instagram, Twitter, etc. whatever they are paying for should be totally different from what’s on your social media if not that will definitely become a major issue
For example, you can upload short videos or sexy pics on social media to attract an audience but, the real show should always be a subscriber-exclusive. The rule is simple if you are not giving your fans anything extra, why should they pay for content that is available for free on your social media platforms? So, create a good content plan so that you are able to convert a majority of your social media followers into OnlyFans subscribers.

7. Retaining Your Fans
It’s important to upload content regularly. The more you post, the more likely they are to stay for another month. You have to focus on the quality of the content you are producing as well. One of the key things about finding success on OnlyFans is “fans” retention. If you cannot deliver satisfactory content to your fans, it is more likely that they will cancel their subscription. It is the last thing you would want because that will hamper your income.
What will people think of me?
Who cares. Have your own limits, post what you’re comfortable with, be yourself. If this is something you’d like to do then go for it, and take advantage of this opportunity. We live in this amazing time that allows us to make 6 figures from our bedrooms, and that’s something truly special.
