1. How Many Users are on OnlyFans?
According to CEO Tim Stokely the Site OnlyFans.com has 120 Million Registered Users.That means the site was quicker to 100 Million users than Facebook which didn’t reach 100 Million Users until 2009, 5 years after it’s founding while it only took OnlyFans 4 years to achieve the same milestone.
OnlyFans Growth was spurred by the world wide Pandemic starting in 2020 which caused people to spend more time at home in front of their computers and smart phones. Even after the pandemic began to calm in the West, OnlyFans has now taken a hold of the pay per subscription market and continues to expand rapidly bringing in by some estimates 500,000 new users a day from all over the world.
2. How Many Content Creators are on OnlyFans?
According to the CEO of the company OnlyFans has surpassed 1 million content creators. It is unknown if they are eliminating those creators who close their accounts or whose accounts are dormant but with the fast growth of the user base it makes sense that OnlyFans would only continue to add new creators looking to cash in on the ready made audience the site provides.
Content creators range from models, to musicians, fitness experts and even popular celebrities. The site continues to make headlines for celebrities and brands jumping onto the site for what many see as a quick ‘payday’. With celebrities boasting of making a million dollars or more in a day. With each of these stories in the media OnyFans continues to attract thousands of new content creators daily.
3. How many daily visits does the Site OnlyFans.com gain daily?
OnlyFans is a site with an insane amount of traffic considering that the majority of it doesn’t come from search engines but from referral sites and direct traffic. Only Fans Ranks #394 globally and #209 in the United States according to Amazon owned Alexa.com. 40% of all of OnlyFan’s traffic comes from the United States .

OnlyFans in comparison with a site like ManyVids.com relies a lot less on search traffic for it’s success. While ManyVid’s has 23% of it’s traffic coming from Search, OnlyFans has only 14%. This means that OnlyFans relies more on it’s brand than search to continue to grow.
5. How much has OnlyFans Paid Out to Content Creators

Content Creators earn 80% of all commissions on the site. This can end up being a lot of money especially if you are able to gain a few thousand subscribers to your page. Some examples would be:
$10 sub X 100 subscribers = $1000/month – 20%($200) = $800.00 for the content creator
$20 sub X 1000 subscribers = $20,000/month -20% ($4000)= $16,000 for the content creator

As the site grew they pulled back on those incentives but many of those links still exist. Content creators are also very interested in gaining revenue from the site so they have no issue putting links to OnlyFans anywhere they can find a place to put them. These links help not only as referral links back to the website but also to help with their SEO Rankings in Google and other search engines, helping them dominate search terms over their competitors.

This is an impressive haul for an only slightly well known rap artist who’s main fame derives from her appearance on the Dr. Phil show. The previous record holder for fastest to $1 Million dollars on OnlyFans; Bella Thorne was able to achieve the amount in 24 hours but received a lot of backlash among content creators for the way that she utilized the platform.

OnlyFans creators keep a large amount of their earning from subscriptions and tips. They keep 80% while the platform keeps 20%. Contrary to what has been advertised in the media about Bella Thorne destroying the tipping system on OnlyFans, a creator can still be tipped up to $200 by any one subscriber. OnlyFans changed their rules after a number of chargebacks and they now allow any member who has been on the site for less than 4 months to tip up to $100 while those in good standing and being on the platform for more than 4 months can tip a creator up to $200.00. Users also have a limit of a $500.00 spend per day, with some users being allowed to spend more.

With the exception of celebrities having one day million dollar payouts on average OnlyFans is paying all creators roughly 6 Million Dollars a day based on the estimates the company is reporting for earnings in 2020. It is likely that this number is much higher for 2021 as the sites popularity continues to grow. This shows that people aren’t just utilizing the site for Free Pages and content but are actually talking with their wallets so to speak, in supporting the website.

False OnlyFans Statistics
Unfortunately with OnlyFans being a new site there are very few resources available for OnlyFans information. Therefore some outlets have used information that cannot be verified. One outlet InfluencerMarketingHub has a popular post that claims research done by a site called xsrus.com in an article titled The Economics of OnlyFans as factual. This article is highly suspect as it was not done by any serious company or journalist but by a random Blogger with 708 Followers on Twitter and even in his analysis he states all of his data was assumptions based off of scraping the site. What is quoted as fact in InfluencerMarketingHub which appears in thousands of Google results read daily are this:
Average Earnings from OnlyFans is $180/month
Top 1% of Accounts Make 33% of the Money
Most Accounts Take Home Less Than $145 Per Month
These Statistics are FALSE and should not be used as the basis for any statistics about OnlyFans. This research from April 2020 is outdated and the person responsible states this in his analysis
Because many accounts don’t have their number of fans available, I had to estimate it. I calculated the number of likes per post, and chose to use that as a proxy for number of fans. This is likely an underestimate; Jem Wolfe has over 12,000 fans, but this number isn’t publicly available on her page. In contrast, she only has 6920 likes per post. You can multiply the number of fans by the subscription price to get monthly revenue. Many accounts didn’t have one subscription price but several, depending on promotions or length of time subscribed. I set the subscription price for all of these accounts to the minimum, $4.99.xsrus.com The Economics of OnlyFans
