How to Make an OnlyFans Account
To make an OnlyFans account, go to OnlyFans.com, select “Sign Up for OnlyFans.com”, enter your email, password, and name.
Alternatively, you can sign up with Twitter or Google.
After signing up, check your inbox and confirm your email address by clicking on the verification link.
If you sign up using Twitter or Google, your followers won’t be notified of it.
Signing up for an OnlyFans account is free, and it does not cost anything.
However, if you’re subscribing to a creator, you need to pay a monthly cost in order to view their content.
On the other hand, if you’re a creator, the revenue split is 80% to you, and 20% to the platform.
Regardless, below is a step-by-step guide (with screenshots) on how you can make an OnlyFans account.
Step #1: Go to OnlyFans.com
Go to OnlyFans.com on a browser (e.g. Safari, Chrome) and click on the “Sign up for OnlyFans.com” link.
Firstly, go to OnlyFans.com.
You can visit the website on a desktop or a mobile device.
OnlyFans does not have an app, so you’ll have to use a browser to access the platform.
If you’re using an iPhone, you can visit the website on Safari.
On the the hand, if you’re using an Android device, you can use Chrome.
If you’re on Safari, you have the ability to add the website to your homescreen (as an app icon).
However, Chrome does not have the “Add to homescreen” feature.
Regardless, once you’re on the website, you’ll land on the sign in page.
On the bottom of the page, there’ll be a link that says, “Sign up for OnlyFans.com” under “Don’t have an account yet”.
Click on the link to create an OnlyFans account.
Step #2: Sign up for an account
Sign up with Twitter/Google or by email.
After you clicked on the “Sign up for OnlyFans.com” link, you’ll land on a sign up page.
You can either sign up using Twitter, Google, or by Email.
On the sign up page, fill in your email, password, and name.
On the email field, you can either use your main email address or a temporary email address.
When you’re choosing your password, you need to have at least one uppercase (capitalized) letter (e.g. A) and one lowercase (small caps) letter (e.g. a).
Lastly, fill up your name (this can be a fake name) and click on the “Sign Up” button.
You may be required to complete a CAPTCHA to prove that you’re not a bot.
After you signed up, you’ll be automatically logged in and redirected to the home page of the website.
If you don’t want to sign up using an email and password, you can sign up with Twitter or Google instead.
Click on “Sign in with Twitter” to sign in using your Twitter account and “Sign in with Google” to sign in using your Google account respectively.
That way, you don’t have to use a separate password.
Your Twitter/Google+ followers won’t get notified that you signed up for OnlyFans, so you don’t have to worry about people knowing,
Step #3: Confirm your email address
Check your inbox and click on the verification link to confirm your email address.
Once you’re logged in, go to the homepage of the site.
On the homepage, you’ll see a message that says, “Please verify your email address”.
If you haven’t verified your email address yet, you’ll receive that message.
In order for you to use OnlyFans’ features, you need to verify your email address.
Otherwise, you won’t be able to subscribe to creators or add your bank information (which is the essence of the platform).
To begin with, check the inbox of the email address that you signed up with.
If you didn’t receive the confirmation mail, make sure to check your junk/spam mail as it might have landed there.
Next, click the verification link on the content of the mail to verify your email address.
After you clicked on the link, you’ll be redirected to the settings page of the OnlyFans website.
If your email address is verified, you will no longer see the “Please verify your email address” message on the home page.
Now, you’ll be able to use all of the platform’s features (e.g. subscribing, add a credit card, add your bank information).
Congrats, you’ve successfully created an OnlyFans account!
How much does it cost to start an OnlyFans?
Starting an OnlyFans does not cost anything.
If you’re starting an OnlyFans account as a creator, you won’t be charged anything.
Instead, there’s a 80/20 revenue split for creators on the platform.
In other words, creators take 80% of the revenue earned, while the platform takes 20%.
On the other hand, if you’re supporting creators on the platform, you’ll be charged based on the monthly subscription cost.
For example, if a creator has a $10 subscription, you’ll be charged $10 on a monthly basis until you cancel it.
Can you have more than one OnlyFans account?
Yes, you can have more than one OnlyFans account.
In fact, some creators have both a free and paid OnlyFans account.
The goal of a free account is to funnel their fans into their paid account, and the occasional PPV.
Fundamentally, a free account is yet another way to promote your paid one.
In a nutshell, as long as you have a valid email address, you can create unlimited accounts.
OnlyFans also accepts temporary emails, so you don’t have to use a real email address to create an account.
How many accounts can you have on OnlyFans?
You can have up to 2 accounts on OnlyFans.
Here’s how you can connect another OnlyFans account:
- Go to your OnlyFans profile.
- Click on the dropdown arrow beside your name.
- Click on “Add another account”.
- Enter your other account’s username.
- Click on “Connect”.
- Enter your other account’s password.
After you’ve connected to another account, you can easily switch accounts by going to your profile, tapping on the dropdown arrow, and selecting the profile that you want to switch to.
However, you can create unlimited accounts on OnlyFans.
As long as you have a valid email address, you can create as many accounts as you want.
If you’re a creator, it’s a great idea to have both a free and a paid account.
You can connect both accounts together in one profile.
Creating an OnlyFans account is easy—you can either sign up with Twitter, Google, or by email.
You can also add another account by clicking on the dropdown arrow beside your name on your profile.
If you’re making an OnlyFans account by email, you can also use a temporary email—it doesn’t have to be a real email.
However, after you’ve created an account, make sure to confirm your email address in order to use the main features of the platform (e.g. subscribing, adding a bank account).
Otherwise, you won’t be able to use the platform.
