You can also set the message to be sent on a specific date and time.

Setting the best date and time for sending a message

When deciding on the best time to post on Fansly, keep in mind that the primary paying audience is located in the USA and Western Europe.

The message itself is added just like a post.

It's a good idea to set up automatic sending of messages every day for a week ahead. This way, you will keep in touch with your audience.

Example of a Tips Menu for custom content on Fansly

Paid Messages

You can set who can send you private messages.

Instagram and TikTok don't like when you directly link to your adult page.

So don't directly mention Fansly.

Example of a models website for advertising Fansly

Paid Advertising

Options for paid promotion of a Fansly account:

  1. Advertising with other models.
  2. Advertising through services and model directories.

However, experience shows that it often doesn't pay off.

I recommend using paid advertising only when you are confident that your setup is optimal and your content is selling well.

If done correctly, you should be able to build an audience from free sources as well.

Remember to create gift links for different advertising campaigns to understand which is effective.

Statistics of withdrawing earned money from Fansly

How to Withdraw Money to a Bank Account?

It's simple.

Connect your bank account and request a payout.

How to Withdraw Money via Payment Systems?

Payment systems such as Paxum and CosmoPayment operate similarly:

  1. Create and verify an account.
  2. Connect your bank account to the payment system.
  3. Link the payment system to Fansly by providing your account email.

How to Withdraw Money via Cryptocurrencies?

If you have cryptocurrency experience and own a crypto wallet, add it as a withdrawal method.

Go to "Add Payout Method → Bank", select your country, and choose the appropriate cryptocurrency.

Available options include:

  1. Bitcoin.
  2. Ethereum.
  3. FDUSD - Ethereum (ERC20).
  4. USDC - Ethereum (ERC20).
  5. USDT - Ethereum (ERC20).

What to Do If You Don't Have a Crypto Wallet?

You need to create one.

For wallet creation, I recommend using large and secure crypto exchanges.

If you have registered documents from Ukraine, Europe, or America, use Binance.

For other countries, Commex is recommended.

Steps to follow:

  1. Create and verify an account on the crypto exchange.
  2. Select the desired cryptocurrency.
  3. Go to deposit methods and copy the address of your wallet.

How to Choose a Cryptocurrency?

The best option is USDT.

It's a stablecoin, meaning its rate is equal to 1USDT = 1 dollar.

To get USDT details on Binance, go to "Deposit → Deposit Crypto → USDT (ERC20) → Save and Share Address".

Withdrawing money from Fansly through cryptocurrency and Binance

My USDT (ERC20) wallet address: TL3ybzFhJsRpzjG1HXGXKAjP4pjwXihPEv.

This is the address I use on Fansly, after selecting "USDT - Ethereum (ERC20)" from the list".

How to Exchange Cryptocurrency for Regular Money?

Once the funds are credited to your exchange account, you can sell them using P2P.

With P2P, you sell your cryptocurrency through the exchange, and in return, you get money in your bank account.

  1. Choose how much USDT you want to sell on the exchange.
  2. The exchange instantly finds a buyer. Your crypto is frozen.
  3. The buyer transfers money to your bank account, which you need to add to the exchange in advance.
  4. You confirm receipt of the money, and then your cryptocurrency is transferred to the buyer.

Exchanges have reviews and support, and I've done this 50+ times already. Everything goes quickly and without problems.

How to Fill Out the W-8BEN Tax Form?

Before your first payout, you'll be asked to fill out a tax form.

To upload the form, go to "Creator Dashboard → More → Tax Documentation".

You need to fill in the fields:

  1. Name: Full name in Latin script as in the international passport.

Fansly vs OnlyFans

Alternatives to Fansly

Exploring options for platform selection.

What's the Difference Between Fansly and OnlyFans?

Fansly and OnlyFans are leading sites in the niche of monetizing adult content.

The main advantage of OnlyFans is that it appeared earlier and has a larger audience.

But Fansly is developing more actively, and getting into the top authors is easier.

Why Fansly is Better Than OnlyFans?

  1. Organic traffic and recommendations within the platform.
  2. Operates in all countries.
  3. Allows for cryptocurrency withdrawals.
  4. More flexible subscription package settings. What required two accounts on OnlyFans can be done in one on Fansly.

Why Fansly is Worse Than OnlyFans?

  1. Smaller audience.
  2. The interface may be a bit complex, but I hope this article has made the main points clearer.

Which Site to Choose for Work?

Fansly is a good alternative to OnlyFans, especially if you understand how to utilize Fansly's features to your advantage.

For example, if it's important for you to withdraw in cryptocurrency, or to have multiple subscription tiers, it makes sense to use Fansly.

In other cases, I recommend trying your hand at OnlyFans.

There's more competition, but also more opportunities.

You can create accounts on both Fansly and OnlyFans. However, it often doesn't make sense since you still need to lead your audience independently.

Also, if you're looking for additional income and access to a new audience, consider webcam modeling.

Many models on Fansly also earn through webcam modeling.

That's all!
