OnlyFans offers content creators endless opportunities to make huge amounts of money. While it can be hard to make big bucks as a beginner on the platform, some people have managed to make life changing amounts of money, with some celebrities making record-breaking sums in just hours.

Hopefully it can inspire you to do the same and experience some of their success. We will make you a top earner on OnlyFans! Join MatchingFans now!
As you would expect, many OnlyFans top earners are celebrities or influencers that already have quite a big following on other social platforms such as TikTok and Instagram.
They then have cleverly directed their followers to their OnlyFans account by posing teasers of their content and linking to their OnlyFans page. With varying degrees of success and leading to pretty huge sums of money falling into their laps. Also known as "thirst trap".
This strategy means that celebs have been able to profit even more on their fame and make millions from having an OnlyFans account alongside their other social media profiles.
This is one of the best ways to grow your account if you’re looking to make it big on the platform – even as a non-celeb. Having a solid social strategy and being able to take people from there, or from forums and sites like Reddit, is the best way to grow your subscribers and boost your income.
Hiring an agency like MatchingFans will help. We have all the best tips and tricks to help you boost your following and turn your social media friends into fans. Plus, we handle all the admin side of running your OnlyFans account, so all you need to worry about is creating amazing content.
Below are the top ten highest OnlyFans earners and how they have managed to reach such highs.
TV star, entrepreneur and model, Blac Chyna (real name Angela White) is one of the most successful OnlyFans creators ever.
At 34 years old, she’s officially the highest paid creator on the site and charged a monthly fee of $19.99 to subscribe to her profile.
She’s rumoured to have quit the platform earlier this year, having got all she needed from it.
But, at the height of her success she had around 150 photos on her profile and around 16.2 million subscribers which is how she generated such a lucrative income.
Actress, singer and writer Bella Thorne also broke OnlyFans records when she generated a million dollars in just 24 hours of joining the platform.
Her following of around 24 million subscribers pay $9.99 to view her posts, with her monthly income from OnlyFans being around $11 million.
Bella reportedly only used the platform at first as an experiment but experienced unprecedented success. She was supposed to be seeing how women in the sex industry could use it to their advantage but her experiment backfired.
It’s rumoured that Bella’s initial posts were charged at around $200 which led to OnlyFans introducing a $50 cap on pay-per-view posts and capping tips at $100. This was met by anger from a lot of people who were using the platform as their main source of income.
Bella Thorne says she never posted any nudity on the platform, only lingerie pictures.
Rap superstar Cardi B generates around $9 million per month on OnlyFans. Despite only having a handful of posts, she has a huge 87.1 million followers and a subscription fee of just $4.99.
Her subscription fee is the pretty low compared to some of the other top earners but it looks to be a strategy that has paid off. With a total of just six posts on the platform the star charges between $7 and $13 per post and has amassed a huge amount of money from her profile, positioning her in the top 1% of OnlyFans creators.
Alongside this her career as a celebrity earns her millions making her a multimillionaire with an estimated net worth of around $40 million combined.
Once a stripper, Cardi B has enjoyed huge success in music and really made the most of her OnlyFans account to enhance her success.
33-year-old American rapper and ex-boyfriend of Kylie Jenner, Tyga has made an estimated 7.69 million from OnlyFans before quitting the platform. He also launched a rival forum and his own talent management company off the back of his success.
Ex adult film star, Mia Khalifa is said to have made a small fortune from her OnlyFans account. Charging subscribers $12.99 a month for access to her content, she has publicly announced she won’t use the platform to post anything explicit but a racier version of her Instagram account.
Erica Mena allegedly makes $4.9 million per month from her OnlyFans account. The 35-year-old hip hop model made a name for herself by first appearing in hip hop music videos for the likes of Akon and Chris Brown before becoming something of an Instagram celebrity. From there she started her OnlyFans account where she regularly posts adult content for her subscribers.
Charging $30 per month, Gemma McCourt, known as Gem101, has more than 117,000 fans and generates around $29 million per year from her content. It’s rumoured she makes 270 times what a doctor would make in a year with her posts.
Singer, model and good friend of Kylie Jenner, Pia Mia has experienced rapid success since joining the platform in 2020. She shares adult content to a huge fan base, with a side of feet pics to keep things interesting. In her first year of joining the platform she made around $2 million from her content.
Ex-boyfriend of Nikki Minaj and 41-year-old Jamaican-American rapper, Safaree Samuels created content on the platform with his then girlfriend Erica Mena. Together, the couple raked in almost $2 million a month in 2021, with him and her both enjoying individual success on the platform since their split.
British model Mila Mondell is reported to have made $1.5 million a month from the platform, generating around $18 million per year. She creates more explicit content for her fans and subscribers.
Welsh beauty Dannii Harwood has made around $1 million from posting adult content on the platform. She schedules regular content and interacts with her followers through live streams and video content.
Teen rapper Bhad Bhabie has ascended to the throne as the reigning queen of OnlyFans, proudly proclaiming that she amassed a staggering $1 million within a mere six hours of her highly-anticipated debut on the adults-only platform.
For a monthly fee of $23.99, Bhad Bhabie grants her devoted followers exclusive access to her photos and videos on her OnlyFans page. Subscribers also are promised the ability to “direct message with her”.
Rumoured to be making around $1.2 million per month from her OnlyFans, Belle Delphine is a South-African British 23-year-old celebrity. She burst onto the scene in 2019 making content that sits somewhere between adult-content and modelling and appeals to ‘gamer boys’ with her cosplay.
She was famously banned from Twitter for posting nudity and moved to OnlyFans, and is rumoured to have a net worth of $500,000.
The top 1% of female earners on OnlyFans are mainly celebs, with Black Chyna enjoying more success on the platform than anyone has before. Closely behind her are Bella Thorne and Cardi B.
There are tons of women making a really successful living from their OnlyFans account with many able to give up their day jobs after raking in big bucks from having so many fans on their accounts.
It’s rumoured that around 30% of the top 1% of creators on OnlyFans are male.
Tyga is the most successful male on the platform, having also left to set up his own rival company after experiencing huge success.
Singer Trey Songs has also been hugely successful on the platform but in a totally non-adult content way – through sharing his music and interacting with fans through the profile.
Tyler Posey, ex-boyfriend of Bella Thorne, has also reportedly made big bucks from using the platform to discuss his sexuality with his fans and explore his sexually fluid identity.
There are also a lot of people out there who’ve generated a huge amount of money on OnlyFans without being a celebrity. It is possible to earn 100k a month without being a celebrity.
It does help if you have a huge social media following so influencers tend to have great success.
Other people who do really well work super hard to drive traffic to their OnlyFans from their social accounts, from other places too like Reddit, Telegram and YouTube.
Male OnlyFans creators can also be hugely successful with the top 1% earning between $6000 and $20,000. Women tend to make more from the platform, but with so many female creators the competition can be fierce, so men can enjoy great success.
The average content creator makes around $180 a month on OnlyFans from their content. Whilst it isn’t enough for most people to leave their job for, it can be a nice extra income each month. But, top level management agencies, like MatchingFans, can help you earn $50k a month within 6 months.
The top 5% of OnlyFans creators are rumoured to make around $2000 per month.
Cardi B makes around $9 million per month from her OnlyFans account.
