10 Onlyfans Alternative Platforms for Content Creators To Make Money

Content creators looking for some extra cash or a side hustle are in luck. 

There are plenty of people in the digital world that are more than happy to consume exciting original content. Once creators prove their content is worthy, followers will pay to view their videos and images. 

Onlyfans is a popular social media platform for content creators that even celebrities like Cardi B are known to contribute to. Onlyfans is a subscription-based platform where users can sell or purchase original content. Onlyfans is known for allowing adult content creators on their platform. Their attempt to ban adult content in 2021 created such a backlash that they had to cancel the ban. However, creators in almost any niche can find an audience here to make money online

This content-creating gig can be great on Onlyfans alternative platforms as well to help creators make extra money and even earn an income. Here are some Onlyfans alternative social media platforms for all niches, including adult entertainment.

The cost is a one-time fee of $699 for a starter, self-hosted account. 

Fanso refers to itself as an OnlyFans clone script and says users have 100% access to the source code, which is highly customizable.

10. Patreon

Patreon is not exactly a match as an Onlyfans alternative. Although there are many similar services offered, there are limitations in terms of adult content. Creators must flag mature themes as 18+, which is content that depicts explicit sexual situations, including nudity. Public spaces should not have any mature themes. Pornography and intercourse on camera are prohibited. 

Otherwise, just like Onlyfans, Patreon gives access to creator accounts via monthly subscriptions.

Patreon Features:

Patreon offers three payment packages. The Lite plan asks for a 5% commission from earnings and provides a host page, communication tools, and workshops. More features are available for 8% and 12% commission on monthly income to Patreon. 

These are the ten best Onlyfans alternative platforms that offer adult content and mainstream content for influencers from all different niches. These social media platforms offer similar services like earning money from loyal followers via custom subscription packages, private messages, videos, customer requests, and referral programs. Creators should also consider the platforms that provide them with more control, like Fanso and Fantime, and platforms with unique features like an e-commerce store for additional revenue streams.
