Are you an OnlyFans content creator who earns a significant chunk of OnlyFans payout through subscription? If so, you need to rethink your OnlyFans earnings strategy as you’re missing an opportunity to make more money on OnlyFans.
There are many ways to earn money on OnlyFans. These include subscriptions, tips, streams, and pay-per-view posts.
Can you make Pay-Per-View posts on OnlyFans? Yes, you can certainly make PPV posts on OnlyFans and triple your OnlyFans income.
Many content creators direct all their efforts toward increasing their account subscriptions to make more money through their OnlyFans accounts. This earns decent payouts for some, but many either fail to earn good payouts or leave vast sums of money on the table.
That’s because they aren’t using the best strategy to increase their revenues on OnlyFans.
So, what is the best way to skyrocket your OnlyFans payouts? Pay-Per-View content is one of the best ways to maximize your monetization on OnlyFans.
Let’s first understand OnlyFans PPV content before getting into how to make a PPV post on OnlyFans Pay-Per-View and earn yourself the highest revenues.
What Does PPV Mean On OnlyFans?
PPV stands for Pay-Per-View. It is the content that your fans can choose to see and pay you for. Remember, you can either keep your profile free for anyone to subscribe and become your fan or keep it open for viewing only on the payment of a subscription price by your subscribers.
Keeping your profile free for people to subscribe and view your feed is an excellent way if you are new to OnlyFans. Allowing people to subscribe to your account, become your fan, and view your feed for free will help you draw more fans as it will give them an opportunity to know you.
You can share free high-quality content and leverage the PPV feature to start making money via OnlyFans. Content creators with free OnlyFans profiles have the benefit of extending the PPV feature to posts and live streaming in addition to sending paid content over messages. However, content creators with paid subscriptions can use PPV only for messages.
That being said, whether you are a content creator with a free account or paid subscription, your PPV content will unlock only once the fans pay you the price set for such content.
How To Leverage OnlyFans PPV Feature?
If you are a content creator with a free account, the ideal way to leverage the OnlyFans PPV feature is by first sharing a teaser or a picture as a post on your timeline and having the main content locked behind the PPV doors. If your subscribers want to see the treasured content locked behind the PPV doors, they can pay you for the same.
Now, this does not mean that you give them everything in a single post and lose your chances of making more money. This is where you can use your creativity, go step-by-step, keep your subscribers intrigued via multiple high-quality posts, and make them keep paying you until they can see the climax content. We’ve explained this in detail in our section on PPV content strategies below.
You can keep your account free for following and create enough free posts which will trigger them to not only subscribe but also pay you for more content via posts, live streaming, and messages. This way you can make much more money through PPV than you probably can via subscriptions.
Remember, a significant portion of your OnlyFans income should typically come from tips and PPV content for maximum payouts. Here’s a snapshot that reveals the payouts of one of the OnlyFans creators. This will help you of how important it is for you to take advantage of PPV content.
If you see the above snapshot carefully, you’ll find that this OnlyFans creator’s major portion of payouts is via tips and PPV messages and not subscriptions.

Tips and PPV messages are the two ways via which you can boost your payouts and enjoy massive success on OnlyFans. Needless to say, if you want huge success on OnlyFans, you need to master PPV content to make more money.
How Pay-Per-View Works in OnlyFans?
There are various ways in which you can create paid content on OnlyFans. In this post, we will cover how you can create paid posts, live streams, and messages on OnlyFans. As mentioned above, paid posts and live streams are only available for content creators with free accounts. Content creators whose account is open for viewing on the payment of a subscription fee can use PPV functionality only for messages and not for posts on their timeline and live streams. Let’s see how you can make paid content on OnlyFans.

5. Add Free Post in Preview and Paid Post in ‘Price to View Tab’
Make sure that you are selecting at least two content pieces from your photo library, one each for the ‘Free Preview’ and ‘Price to View’. This is because the ‘Free Preview’ media can be shown as a teaser to your fans free of cost. If they wish to see more of your content, they must pay you to view the content that you have locked behind the PPV wall.
Accordingly, you’ll see two tabs once you select media for posting. These are the ‘Free Preview’ Tab and the ‘Price to View’ Tab. Remember, when you upload media, all of your media first gets uploaded in the ‘Free Preview’ Tab. To separate the free from the paid media, you will have to use the side arrows to have free media in the ‘Free Preview’ Tab and lock the paid media in the ‘Price to View’ Tab.
Therefore, make sure you are adding media in the right tab for fans to see the free teaser first and pay for the content locked behind the PPV wall.
6. Write a Description in the Space Provided
Add a small description of the paid post in the space provided describing your feelings, asking what the fans are doing, or anything related to the post.

PPV messages work in a similar way as paid posts on OnlyFans. You need to go to Direct Messages and select the fans to whom you want to send the message.
Further, you can send the message to particular lists, specific fans, or all of your fans at once. Once you select the fans you want to send the message to, you need to repeat the exact same process as you adopt for posting a paid post, as mentioned in the above section.
You’ll see the ‘Type a Message’ Section and all the same icons for adding media, voice messages, vault, scheduling a post, and a price tag for paid posts. As mentioned above for paid posts, you need to follow the following steps to post PPV messages to your fans:
- Click on the ‘Price Tag’ icon and set the price for your paid message. Click ‘Save’.
- Add Free Preview and Price to View media in the Free Preview and Price to View tabs respectively.
