Fanvue Review: Can You Actually Make Money?

The used panty marketplace

You’ve heard of OnlyFans but have you heard of Fanvue? Similar to OnlyFans, Fanvue is a subscription-based website where creators can post and earn money off their high-quality content. In recent years, subscription websites like these have really taken off. Now, creators from around the world can showcase their skills and talents and fans can pay for access to exclusive content.

While NSFW content tends to do best on OnlyFans, does the same hold true for Fanvue? In fact, can you actually make money on this platform, and is it better or worse than OnlyFans? We’re here to answer all of these questions and more. So keep reading for our Fanvue review and find out how this subscription website stacks up against the rest.

What is Fanvue and How Does It Work?

Fanvue is a relatively new subscription site compared to industry standards. Launched in 2020 and based in London, England, Fanvue is considered a social subscription platform where creators from all walks of life can connect with their fans. The platform currently has nearly 390,000 creators and is designed to empower creative minds while also optimizing the fan experience. 

Similar to OnlyFans, anyone can create and post on Fanvue including artists, chefs, athletes, and models. But, NSFW and adult content tend to reign supreme. Becoming a creator is super simple and requires a very brief registration process. Once your account is active, you’ll go through an instant ID verification process, and then, voila! You’re ready to start creating and earning.

In an attempt to outdo the competition and make a name for itself in the industry, Fanvue promises a smooth, user-friendly experience every step of the way. This starts with the website’s sleek, smooth design that’s simple for users to navigate. Not only is the platform not bulky like some other social media sites, but users claim it opens easily and quickly on most browsers and devices (including mobile). 

The platform also prides itself on providing top-notch customer service and access to a support team for both users and creators. This is one of the site’s most unique features and is geared toward helping creators monetize their content and make the most out of every post.

How Much Money Can You Make on Fanvue?

As with most online endeavors, the earning potential on Fanvue is unlimited. How much you make is directionally proportionate to how much effort you put in. The more fans and subscribers you have, the more opportunity to make money. Up until now, Fanvue let content creators keep 85% of their earnings, but starting in 2023, that percentage will dip slightly lower, with creators keeping 80% of what they earn. The website even has an earnings calculator to give you a better idea of how much money you can make.

Just like OnlyFans, there are plenty of Fanvue creators that offer free access to their content as a preview or teaser. A creator may post a few free videos and then charge a subscription fee for their racier or more exclusive content. Another technique is to have separate accounts so you can post a shorter video or teaser to your free account and the full version to your paid account. If your fans want to see your best content, they’ll have to pay. Fanvue lets creators set their own monthly subscription rates. It’s important to set a monthly fee that’s not too high that you scare people away but also not so low that you’re not turning a profit.

Some creators claim they’ve made up to $1,000 in a single day by posting high-quality content to their pages. (More on how and if this is possible in a bit). The best way to make money on Fanvue is to respect and meet your fan’s expectations, always publish quality content, and both influence and inspire your fans. If you provide content that is invaluable, your fans will be more than willing to pay for access to it. They may even tip you as a sign of their overwhelming gratitude.

Ways to Earn on Fanvue

Speaking of tips and subscription fees, there are several ways to earn money on Fanvue. Here are some of the most popular and lucrative.

Monthly Subscription Fees

This is what most sites like Fanvue and OnlyFans are known for – the monthly subscription fees. Most creators make their biggest chunk of change by charging fans a monthly fee to access their content. You set the rates and loyal fans dedicated to your work subscribe to your page and pay this fee every month for uninterrupted access to your page. 

Pay-to-View Content

This service is also found on OnlyFans and allows creators to sell content that is pay-to-view. What that means is that you create and post exclusive content for a specific price. Unlike a monthly subscription fee which is recurring, fans can make a one-time payment to see what you have to offer. Similar to the subscription fee, creators set their own prices for pay-to-view content. For some Fanvue creators, this type of content is the most profitable. 


Just like an exotic dancer or cam model, creators on Fanvue can earn tips for a job well done. Satisfied customers and dedicated fans are often more than willing to send their favorite content creators a hefty tip from time to time. Not only does this show their appreciation, but it’s a way to help support your content and ensure that you keep creating new and exciting material. 

Another reason fans are so willing to cough up extra cash is in the hopes of getting noticed by their favorite creators. Tipping helps draw the attention of content creators, enhancing the fan experience. 

Produce Private Content

Fanvue offers another unique opportunity to make money selling private content to selected individuals. This is done via private messenger or chat and includes custom requests. When a fan wants something very specific (whether it’s a video where you mention their name, a picture of you wearing a specific outfit, or some other naughty fantasy) they’re usually willing to pay for it. Especially if they’re loyal fans that’s been following you for quite some time. This is where the big money is made since it’s a matter of supply and demand. You have something your fan wants, so be sure to set your price accordingly. But it’s also important to price this private content fairly. You want to keep these fans as followers and turn them into repeat buyers.

Tips for Earning More on Fanvue

Now that you know the basics of how Fanvue works, let’s discuss tips for success. Not everyone will make thousands of dollars a day on this platform or any other social subscription site. It takes a combination of hard work, consistency, and a little bit of luck. The most successful accounts also have a “wow” factor that helps them stand out from the crowd.

Before you invest all of your time and money in becoming a Fanvue content creator, consider these tips for success.

Create a Winning Profile

First things first – without an engaging profile that gets noticed, you won’t be able to build a dedicated customer base. Creating a profile is about more than just picking a unique username and posting a sexy picture. A lot goes into setting up a profile that attracts fans from across the world ready and willing to support you.

Here are a few quick tips on creating a winning profile:

  • Choose a picture that gives fans a sneak peek at what your content will be like. Make sure it’s high-quality, the right size, and eye-catching. If you plan to post adult content, your profile pic should be sexy and flattering.
  • Include plenty of important information in your bio about the type of content fans can expect from you (and be sure to deliver on this promise). Use engaging language that leaves fans intrigued and inspired to subscribe. 
  • According to the site, adding an intro video to your profile can increase sales by 50%! People love videos and interactive content so give your fans a taste of the high-quality posts you plan to include on your page.
  • Create a welcome message that makes fans feel appreciated right from the start. This can be something as simple as a “Thank you for subscribing. Tell me about yourself.”, to something more formal or lengthy. 

Set a Reasonable Subscription Rate

If you’re just starting out on Fanvue you may be unsure of just how much you can charge for your content. This is all about personal preference but it’s also important to be reasonable. Subscriptions on the platform range from $3.99 per month to as much as $50 per month. The average creator charges somewhere between $5 and $20 for access to their content. Beginners should start at the lower end of this price point until they gain a substantial following or start to gain traction. Then, you can slowly increase your rates.

Another factor that affects the subscription rate is whether or not you plan to offer pay-to-view content. If you don’t plan to create and post PTV content and everything is already included in your monthly fee, then you can charge slightly more. Accounts that plan to post a lot of PTVs should set a lower subscription fee but slightly higher prices for individual content. 

Post Quality Content, Consistently

This is true for any online venture and making money on Fanvue is no different. You can’t post random videos every few weeks, not engage with fans, and upload grainy pictures and expect to make thousands of dollars a day. You need to put in the effort to see the rewards. And the first step in this process is to post quality content, often. This is especially true on subscription sites where paying customers expect a certain level of “service” and consistency for their monthly fee.

One way to hold yourself accountable is to create a posting schedule and stick to it. That might mean posting every day at 8 a.m. and again at 8 pm. You can primarily post pictures and then treat fans to a video or live stream every weekend. The options are endless and, ultimately, up to you. But at the end of the day, your mission is to deliver content that is SO engaging, amazing, and valuable that your subscribers feel obligated to pay you for access to what you have to offer.

Add Variety

Sometimes, it just comes down to simple math. The more content and variety of content you have on your site, the more fans and subscribers you’ll attract. For example, someone will be much more willing to pay $10 per month for access to a page filled with 100s of videos than one with just a dozen. Now, if that content is exciting, quality, and engaging, not only will those subscribers stick around but they’ll be more likely to tip you, pay for the PTV content you create, and tell a friend.

When you’re just starting out, fill your page with as much quality content as possible. This will help launch your Fanvue career. Once you become established, you can slow your pace slightly but should still be posting daily or, at least, a few times per week. (This is where a posting schedule comes in handy). Posting on a regular basis keeps your fans engaged and dedicated.

Promote Yourself

The saying, “Build it and they will come”, unfortunately, doesn’t apply to your Fanvue page. You need to promote yourself and your content on other platforms. And it should come as no surprise that the best place to do this is social media. Whether you decide to use your existing, personal social media accounts or to create ones specifically for your Fanvue account, you need to get out there and market yourself. 

Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, and Reddit are some of the best and most popular platforms for advertising your Fanvue page. Others include YouTube, Twitch, and Snapchat. Consider which of your accounts currently have the most followers and start there. If you’re posting NSFW or adult content, be careful that your posts on other accounts don’t go against the community guidelines. The last thing you want is to have one of your social media accounts banned while you’re trying to promote your Fanvue page. 

And here’s a bonus tip that most people don’t know. If you currently have an OnlyFans account, you can import all or some of your content directly to your Fanvue account, saving you tons of time.
