Fanvue or Onlyfans

Both Only Fans and Fanvue offer creators a solid subscription-based platform to connect directly with their fans. The jury is still out on whether platforms like Fanvue will put an end to Only Fan’s reign over the creator-subscription space. What can definitely be said, is that Fanvue’s inclusive stance towards all creators is refreshingly different and its tech first approach is excitingly promising for the ever growing creator economy.

OnlyFans has quickly become one of the most well-known sites on the internet impressively growing its user-base over lockdown. However, it isn't the sole choice out there. Since OnlyFans started moving their brand in a PG only direction, many creators have left the nest in search of alternative, more inclusive platforms where they can connect with fans free of overbearing restrictions.


A promising newcomer to the scene is Fanvue, a platform that claims to welcome all creators, both mainstream and adult. Having reportedly invested significantly (close $1m) into building a reliably robust tech-first platform, Fanvue’s entrance demonstrates that ambitious creators now have options.


There are several similarities between the two, such as their shared commission rate of 20% and core functionalities. Only Fans enjoys the benefits of being the first mover, resulting in a prominent brand that is universally recognised. That being said, this fame may be a double-edged sword. The brand's synergy with adult content, which has led to the platform’s present success, has made the platform’s desired migration towards a PG only mainstream market a challenge.

On the other hand, being new to the market, Fanvue is yet to define its reputation and so remains free of the weight it carries. This poses both an advantage and disadvantage to the newcomer as many creators may-well choose to opt for the friendly familiarity of an established platform over the unfamiliar opportunity Fanvue offers. However, it’s not all over for the challenger, Fanvue has reportedly invested significantly into building a reliably robust tech-first platform, spending close $1m over the last 18 months.


One advantage Fanvue will likely capitalise on is its openness towards all creators. The platform has been tenacious in stating a complete lack of prejudice towards mainstream or adult. A growing influx of both mainstream and adult creators backs up this bold stance. Of late, Only Fans has come under heavy fire after announcing its plans to ban adult creators, which it later reversed. Adult creators haven’t been shy in sharing their feelings of discontent across socials, stating they’ve felt disrespected and used as Only fans plays dice with their financial future.

Both sites offer a range of features. Both allow creators to take subscriptions, send Pay Per View messages, receive tips, and live stream. Only fans takes a point in its stories function, yet to be seen on Fanvue. However, Fanvue claims to have developed stronger security to protect creators' content, a growing concern in the space. A point also has to be given to the newcomer for its colourful deep-analytics, enabling creators to better understand their audience and earn more.
