Canadian OnlyFans creators say they haven’t been paid by the site since September. At least six developers have gathered on Reddit and Twitter to seek advice and share concerns about the payment delays.
On October 11, OnlyFans creator Steph Oshiri posted on r/OnlyFansAdvice, a subreddit that acts as an advice forum for OnlyFans creators, that she hasn’t been paid by OnlyFans in “about a month” and is about $40,000 short their work on the site.
Oshiri says her payments are listed as “rejected” or “pending” on OnlyFans and that she changed her bank account information in case there was a problem on her end, but still hasn’t received her payments.
“OnlyFans is useless and won’t answer me,” Oshiri wrote in her Reddit post. She also clarified that her bank “says it’s entirely on OnlyFans” to fix the issue. “If I didn’t have any savings, I’d be screwed,” she said.
OnlyFans pays creators through payouts: Creators can manually withdraw funds from their current balance on the site or set up weekly or monthly automatic withdrawals. According to OnlyFans, “withdrawals typically take three to five business days to process” and appear in creators’ bank accounts after withdrawals have been requested. Creators can track their payouts using OnlyFans’ Payout Requests feature.
Rose, who is known on OnlyFans as @DolceRose, commented on Oshiri’s post by saying that she also didn’t receive her last payment from OnlyFans – and that she noticed that her most recent payments from OnlyFans came from a “different name” and not be “consistent” .”
“It’s honestly such a slap in the face to have virtually no customer support after giving them such a large chunk of our income,” Rose wrote in r/OnlyFansAdvice. “I’m just over it today.” In response to her requests, Rose says OnlyFans asked her to submit PDFs of her bank statements – which she claims are “BS”.
In the Reddit thread, OnlyFans creators shared information about their attempts to access their OnlyFans payouts. Ms. Luna (@mslunatoyou) says she withdrew a payment on October 2nd and is expected to receive money by October 4th. Even though the payment shows as “processed” on OnlyFans, Ms. Luna says she didn’t receive the money.
Asher Lee (@suwontok) also said he requested a withdrawal on October 2nd and is still awaiting money.
In an email to the Daily Dot, Lee said he hadn’t been paid “almost a month” and that about $860 “is floating around somewhere” after he tried to withdraw it. He now said he was too scared to withdraw another $800. Lee said he relies on his savings, but they’re “running low.”
“I definitely need my payment ASAP,” Lee told the Daily Dot. “I have a mortgage payment and a car payment, plus credit card bills that I have to pay that I use to pay for groceries.”
Lee said that when he contacted OnlyFans support via Twitter, OnlyFans admitted that it was aware of the bug but that it had been fixed and that its Oct. 2 payout “should be on the way.”
Lee also said that this isn’t the first time he’s struggled as a Canadian creator to get his payouts from Only Fans: He’s still waiting for $398 that was lost during a payout issue in 2021.
“I’m very angry about this,” Lee said.
Other commenters on Oshiri’s post shared how some withdrawal issues were solved by using Skrill, an online banking platform.
