How to Make Money on OnlyFans Without Showing Your Face

In this article we will talk in detail about how to make money on OnlyFans without showing your face or publishing adult content.

OnlyFans has been around since 2016. It reached its popularity in March 2020 when the global pandemic shut down a lot of employment relations. Many people saw that making money on OnlyFans was fast and easy, so they created an account and started selling their content.

After a while, the platform got crowded with individuals, celebrities, and adult content. OnlyFans allows its members to post whatever they want to and get paid for it.

But this doesn’t mean you can only make money selling private adult content. In fact, there are other ways that make OnlyFans a good place to make money, even without showing your face.

What Is OnlyFans?

Similar to other popular social media online platforms, OnlyFans allows its subscribers to post different photos, videos, and streams and earn money for them.

The only thing that makes OnlyFans different from YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram is the explicit sexual content allowance.

Back in 2016, OnlyFans was not so popular, but many people used to sell unique content there. The content was mainly memes, workout videos, online coaching tips, and so on. There was nudity, but not as much as these days.

But nudity is not the only way that brings you profit on OnlyFans. You can make money from donations and sponsored content without sharing your face, identity, or nudity at all.

Many celebrities are subscribers of OnlyFans, but a lot of other people also gained popularity on OnlyFans by selling unique content with zero nudity.

Some users offer subscriptions for eating and cooking, while others focus on workouts, meal plans, makeup, fashion, etc. The OnlyFans community is a place where you can monetize your uniqueness and creativity based on the most researched keywords.

How Does OnlyFans Work?

Like all other apps and platforms, you have to create an account and decide whether you will be a subscriber or a creator. The creator profile means you are the “seller” of the content and will post on your profile.

Subscribers pay to see the creators’ content each month. Every creator has subscription plans that allow the subscribers to see more if they pay more.

The subscriptions are generally on a monthly basis, so a subscriber can unsubscribe the next month if the creator they subscribed to was not what they expected.

However, the creators don’t receive the total amount their subscribers pay. The OnlyFans policy limits the payments to 80% since 20% goes as an OnlyFans commission. And this is how OnlyFans profits from the users.

As a creator, you set the monthly subscription fee and mention what the subscribers get for the price they pay. For example, the first subscription might be $5, and the subscribers see Q&A, photos, and other basic stuff for this price.

For the pricier subscription, e.g., $10, you should offer more because the subscribers will pay to see more of your content. Also, you can sell PPV content which is paid extra to the subscription plan.

How to Create an Account on OnlyFans?

To register on OnlyFans, you have to go to the page “Start OnlyFans” and click on Sign Up.

Then, all you have to do is enter your email and password and set a nickname. The nickname can be anonymous, your name, or something else that tells more about the content you are going to share.

The registration also requires your ID and banking information. The ID is required because there is a lot of explicit content on the platform which is unavailable for people younger than 18.

The OnlyFans policy requires being over 18 years of age to be able to create an account, whether as a creator or as a subscriber. Banking information is essential because, as we previously mentioned, as you sell your content, you’ll also have to pay OnlyFans.

When you are done with the account requirements, you should wait to be approved. The website operators check your information and confirm your age before letting you in.

The process might take a while because the information is checked by real people employed by OnlyFans.

OnlyFans guarantees that your personal information is safe and secured, and you don’t have to worry about your information being exposed publicly, especially if you want to stay anonymous.

Once you go through all the registration processes, you can start building your fanbase (if you opt for a creator profile). As we mentioned, you can create content on this platform and make money without having to show your face.

Here are a few content ideas you can try on OF:

  • Cocktails;
  • Cooking;
  • Videos about how to make money online (you can share the screen instead of showing your face);
  • Videos about coding;
  • Gardening;
  • Travel;

How to Make Money on OnlyFans: 5 Ways

Receiving tips

OnlyFans understands that being a content creator is hard, which is why it has developed the tipping feature.

All OnlyFans accounts with at least 5 posts can earn tips from the subscribers. The tips are an excellent way to increase your earnings while the subscribers show their gratitude for your creations.

Subscribers who want to tip your post can do it the moment they see your tipping post. They choose the “Send tip” option right to the like and comment icons.

Despite the bigger earnings you make with the tips, you also see which content the subscribers like most and respond more to.

So this way, you will know what to post in the future and increase your earnings and tips.

The tipping feature can be enabled and disabled. When enabled, the subscribers can see how much a specific post is being tipped. When disabled, no one can see the tipping amount you have collected for the shared content.

You can earn tips on live streams, too. Just go live or make a co-stream with another creator and see how the subscribers tip your content. As a creator, you can set a tip goal and track the progress.

Subscription model

This is the most common method most creators earn money on OnlyFans. When creating content on a specific topic, users might want to know and see more than the free content available to everyone.

This is the step when you can set a subscription plan for your content. The minimum subscription can be $4,99, while the maximum can go up to $49.

To increase the number of subscribers and your subscription earnings, you can give monthly subscription discounts so that more subscribers can “buy” your program. Subscription bundles are also an excellent way to attract more and more subscribers.

For example, you can offer a 3-month or 6-month subscription bundle at a discounted price so that interested subscribers can say and pay for longer than a month.

Subscribers who pay the subscription fee expect to see more of the content you say you provide. If your OnlyFans profile is generally oriented to cooking, the subscribers might pay the fee to see more cooking tips and unique recipes.

Affiliate marketing

This method allows you to sell a third-party service or product by promoting it. Your selling promotions bring you earning commission for each successful purchase.

The selling object can be anything. OnlyFans does not limit your products or services if you opt for affiliate marketing.

A selling object is often nudity, but numerous people use this platform for other non-explicit purposes. So, if you want to know how to make money on OnlyFans without publishing adult content, you can switch to promoting online courses, skincare products, hotel bookings, VPNs, etc.

A large number of users choose Amazon affiliates and ShareASale, but you can share any affiliate program you want, depending on the product or service you offer. Simply upload a link on a post or in the bio.

You should learn more about the commissions if you opt for this earning method — the percentage you earn from one purchase is the profit you make from selling the product or service. If the product’s price is $100, and the commission is 5%, it means you will earn $5.

Referral program

OnlyFans referral program allows the individuals who refer a creator to earn 5% of their earnings. The number of referred creators is unlimited; they get paid on the first business day of each month.

Initially, this program was unlimited. As the platform gained popularity, the owners made some changes and limited the referrals up to the first million earned by the referred creator.

Before this limitation, OnlyFans was paying for this program for life.

The referral program is more like a reward for sharing the creator’s content and attracting more subscribers. If you opt for this earning program, you should know that you will earn a small percentage of the creator’s total earnings, which is a pretty good amount to start profiting from OnlyFans.

Since the number of referrals is unlimited, as a user, you can find multiple referrals and increase your earnings with every new referral you make. This program is available only to users with no rival fan account on the site.

The minimum withdrawal is also limited and varies depending on the payout frequency you choose. So, the minimum payout might be as little as $20 or over $100.

Paid messages (PPV messages)

You can accept tips in DM for exchanging personalized content like advice, workout program, recipe, meal plan, etc.

Subscribers interested in your direct messages pay a fee to see the content. This earning option is generally oriented to PPV (Pay-Per-View) messages, locked posts, locked messages, etc.

Many celebrities and influencers use paid messages on OnlyFans. This option is good because the subscribers do not actually subscribe to see your content.

This might mean a little more privacy about who you follow and what you see because the content you pay for is between you as a subscriber and the content creator.

The process is simple and looks like all regular product-for-money trades. The fans pay a fee for one message which is sent by the content creator. There is an option to send some PPV messages to fans who request a specific kind of content. The messages can contain video, photo, or audio content.

The price for the message is set by the creator, and there is no limitation for its minimum or maximum value.

Tips on How to Attract Your Ideal Audience and Make Money on OnlyFans

Check the most researched keywords

When making an OnlyFans profile, check what people mainly search for. If you opt for a cooking or fitness profile, check what the subscribers are generally interested in.

You can go with interesting fitness tricks, do’s and don’ts, meals, etc., but the most important thing is to stick to the most researched keywords.

Make some interesting Q&As

It is important to show what your OnlyFans profile is about, but the available content should not be exclusive.

The Q&As should be something like a short answer with a mysterious background to attract people to pay to find the complete answer.

Go with the paid PPV messages

The PPV messages bring you money from fans who are not your subscribers. This is an excellent way to make money, showing part of your OnlyFans content.

The fans get exclusive content in a direct message if they pay more for it.

You can also send them personalized PPV messages if they ask you to do it. This attracts more and more fans to your profile, with the potential to be your subscribers in the near future.

Make a partnership

Find a profile with similar content to yours. Publish some partnership photos or videos with a creator who has more subscribers.

That might help you build an audience and increase the number of subscribers. And this automatically leads to more money.

How to Make Money on OnlyFans Without Showing Your Face

There is no need to reveal your face or show your identity while offering products, services, or any kind of content on OnlyFans.

You can keep your privacy to a level that makes you comfortable while sharing content online.

Don’t show your real name

Start with setting an anonymous nickname.

The nickname can be something you like or something that is related to the content you share on OnlyFans.

You can get inspiration from many celebrities, actors, influencers, and singers who often use a stage name.

Make it simple and catchy so that the fans will know about you and easily remember your OnlyFans nickname.

Ensure your OnlyFans nickname has nothing mutual with your real name or a name that your friends and family call you in person.


If your OnlyFans profile is for cooking, you can make videos without filming your face. For example, you can lower the camera to capture only your hands and torso below your neck.

Also, you can wear a mask, as Marshmello does. It will make your account unique, and many people will recognize your mask and nickname.

Use your creativity; there are a hundred ways to cover your face while sharing OnlyFans content.

As you gain popularity, a lot of people may ask for your face, but don’t get provoked, and stay anonymous as long as you can (it is much better for you).

If you decide to share your face, you can make paid content where the fans and subscribers can pay to see the image or video showing your face, like the case with Pay-Per-View messages.

Enable the GeoBlocking feature

This feature allows you to block a specific range of people living in a specific area. This might be an excellent feature if you want to hide your OnlyFans profile from your friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, etc.

  1. To enable this feature, you should open the settings menu.
  2. Then, choose “Security”;
  3. Scroll down and find the “GeoBlocking” option;
  4. Manage the countries and regions you want to block;
  5. Save the changes.

If you know specific IP addresses, you can also use them to block specific persons, like your employer, coworkers, family members, etc.

Hide your marks

If you have a specific mole, scar, or even tattoo, it is best to hide it if you don’t want to get uncovered. A lot of people might recognize you because of your specific scar or mole, so it is best to wear long sleeves, gloves, or anything else that will hide the marks that tell something about who you are.

Your nails might also be a recognizable sign of you, wear gloves or change the nail polish color when taking photos or filming videos on OnlyFans.

Tattoos might be your biggest identity pointer. If many people know your tattoos and their specific place on your body, try to hide them with makeup or clothes.

If you share photos, you can easily hide the marks and tattoos with the Photoshop app.


There are many ways to earn money from OnlyFans without showing your face or publishing adult content, like any other social media platform.

Show your qualities, share valuable content people would pay for, and let everyone know how to succeed in a specific field while earning money from their subscriptions.

Be unique. Be creative. Inspire.
