How to Join and Set up an OnlyFans Account

So you have heard about the hottest content site around of late…  OnlyFans? It’s where anyone can post some content (images or videos) and have subscribers pay them a monthly fee to see their content.

The site is great for adult performers but can also be used by anyone. Some huge accounts on there are based on fitness (teaching people how to get fit) and even cooking (teaching how to cook great recipes).

So let’s get started. First of all you need to go over to OnlyFans and join. It’s 100% free to have an account.

sign up

Fill out the sign up form and tick the agree to terms and conditions. They are pretty standard but you should have a quick read of them just to make sure you fully understand what you are getting yourself into.

When you first get into OnlyFans make sure you go and verify your email by clicking the link in the email you would have just received.

Now when you log in your will see your profile. At this point it’s a good idea to change your username to your stage name you wish to use. This will also make your account easier to find and remember rather than just using the standard random number code. We see so many people not doing this early on and it then affects other things like existing links and traffic.

Next add an image and fill out the about section. Make sure you add some high quality enticing images and also lots of bio information about who you are and what you offer and why people should subscribe to your page. Make sure you add a bank account now too so you will be able to be paid.

Once you have clicked on add a bank account you will come to this screen. Just keep working through the questions like residency and tick the box to say you are of legal age.

Fill out your banking information and add the required images. This is necessary for many reasons like to make sure you are who you say you are. This helps prevent many things like scams and money laundering etc.

Then click submit for approval at the bottom of the page. This will take up to 2 business days. Once you have been approved then it is good to really start getting into using your OnlyFans account.

For banking there are some options you could use bank deposit. It might ask you for a Swift Code. We have many message us asking what a swift code is. It’s just a banking code used to transfer funds. To find out yours just goggle swift code and then your bank name. That will show you the code you need to use.

Another payment method you might like is Paxum. Check it out and see what you think. It’s free to join and very easy to use.

Once approved you will be able to set your price per month you wish to charge your subscribers to see your content. Make sure you consider this a lot. What do you feel is a fair price and also a price that will motivate you to keep working on the platform.

Next you can starting adding content by clicking on the circled next post button. There is also the ability to go live should you wish to. This can be great to build rapor with your audience as they can ‘get to know you better’. For example you might go live when you are out at an event you are passionate about for example a dog show for charity.

Make sure you click on ‘my profile’ and check you have great images for your header and bio and also some good teaser bio words to entice your potential fans to join. If not work on that area.

Next you need to promote your link. Make sure you use your OnlyFans affiliate program referral link under my referrals for 5% lifetime earnings of joins. Read this guide to learn how to use your referral link.

To promote the link you should share it and have it in your bio on all your social media accounts. Sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin, everything!!! Then just post little sneak peaks of your content to try and have your fans interested in joining you.

If you haven’t signed up yet, head over to OnlyFans and join. Don’t delay, start today is our best advice.

Now that you have joined you will need to get started. To do this you will need a few things:

Lighting: Either lots of natural light or if you don’t have that make sure you purchase a ring light. They will come in a few sizes and will offer you some front and back lighting. You will need to test what makes your images pop the best.

Camera: We recommend a very good camera. This can be your phone assuming your phone is a fairly new one and has a high quality camera. Sometimes mobile phone shot content performs better than professionally shot content. Test with your audience to see what they wish to see.

Remote Timer: This can be good for photos so you don’t have to keep using the timer and running back and forth from your tripod.

Sex Toys and Some Lube: We recommend toys from The Discount Adult Shop but any high quality adult toys will work well.

Lingerie: You must look great in your photos to treat your audience. This cost money unfortunately 🙁  It’s just a cost of business.
