So you have decided that online sex work is what you want to do, and have taken the very first steps. Now, it’s time to learn a bit more about different platforms, and figure out which ones are best for you.

Though there are many platforms that are great for indie porn producers and performers, I will stick to writing about the ones I have personally used and would recommend. I simply know the most about them through my own experience. That means that you won’t really find any camsites on this list, as my services are focused on Snapchat subscriptions and videos, rather than live camming.

Fancentro

What can you sell: Premium Snapchat subscriptions, private Instagram subscriptions, and “feed” subscriptions (where you can upload videos and photos)
Revenue share: 75/25
Payout frequency: Weekly
What I like about it: Fancentro is simply the most user-friendly and convenient Snapchat management tool available right now. If you sell monthly subscriptions, recurring payments / automatic re-billing are a must, and the subscriber management tools Fancentro uses make it super easy to add new people and keep track of your earnings. I have tried to offer my Snapchat through other platforms in the past, but none came anywhere near Fancentro’s efficiency.
What I don’t like about it: Despite a 75/25 rev share, there is no chargeback protection.

ManyVids

What can you sell: Premade and custom videos, MV Crush subscriptions (you can send notes and media to your crushes), and practically anything else through store items and tips
Revenue share:
80/20 for MV Crush, 60/40 for everything else
Payout frequency:
Twice a month
What I like about it:
ManyVids is the biggest clipsite out there, is well known with buyers, and has a lot of internal traffic. Though it takes hard work and effort to get your MV score up enough to really take advantage of that, the payoff can be significant!
What I don’t like about it:
Clipsites are often portrayed as “passive income”, but the truth is, it takes a lot of work to be successful on MV! Regularly publishing quality content and marketing yourself is definitely not passive.

OnlyFans

What can you sell: Subscriptions to your page, where you can upload videos and photos
Revenue share:
80/20
Payout frequency:
Daily bank transfers (for UK-based folks at least), or when you withdraw.
What I like about it:
Daily payouts and an 80% cut are very hard to beat. OnlyFans has been around for a while, and many buyers are familiar with it.
What I don’t like about it:
The site could use an upgrade, and uploading can be a bit slow.

PornHub / ModelHub

What can you sell: Videos
Revenue share:
65/35 for videos on ModelHub, roughly 80/20 of ad revenue
Payout frequency:
Once a month
What I like about it: coming soon
What I don’t like about it: coming soon

IndieBill

What can you sell: Premade and custom videos, Skype shows, Premium Snapchat subscriptions
Revenue share:
85/15
Payout frequency: Twice a month
What I like about it:
One of the highest payouts in the industry! Buying content is very easy for customers as they do not need to make an account, and I think the interface is easy to work with.
What I don’t like about it:
You will need to bring all your own customers, as IndieBill does not generate any internal traffic. Additionally, IndieBill adds a $0.95 fee for buyers to every transaction. This adds up if someone wants to buy multiple videos of yours, as they cannot add multiple items to a cart together. Another minor point is that once you have created a store item (e.g. a video), you cannot change its price. If you want to change an item’s price, you have to create an entirely new listing, which can be a bit frustrating. I’m also not a fan of the Snapchat function because there are no automatic re-bills.

Patreon

What can you sell: People pledge money to your page in return for “rewards” - you decide what rewards you offer. Whilst lingerie and nude content is generally okay (as long as it’s for Patrons only and not public), you cannot offer pornographic content (this includes any shots focused on genitals and masturbation content)
Revenue share:
roughly 90/10
Payout frequency: When you choose to withdraw
What I like about it:
Patreon is well known outside of the adult industry, meaning that people are often less hesitant to use it. Unlike adult platforms, customers can pay using PayPal.
What I don’t like about it:
Porn is not allowed, and Patreon’s treatment of NSFW content creators is questionable.

Findrow

What can you sell: Subscriptions to your “app” and
Revenue share:
50/50 on subscriptions, 68/32 on videos. However, this is a profit share after a cut for “expenses”, making the actual revenue share closer to 42/58 for subscriptions and 58/42 for videos.
Payout frequency:
Once a month
What I like about it:
Findrow has good internal traffic. Even without advertising your app elsewhere, you can still make quite a bit of money from it.
What I don’t like about it:
By far the worst revenue split I’ve encountered, and the numbers listed on the site are a bit misleading. Having said that, it’s still worth uploading content you already have and take advantage of the existing buyers on the platform (I would not recommend promoting your Findrow app over other platforms)
