The Canadian creators of OnlyFans say they haven’t been paid by the site since September. At least six creators have come together on Reddit and Twitter to seek advice and share concerns about late payments.

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 for “about a month” and that he is about $40,000 short of his work on the site.

Oshiri says her payments are listed as “rejected” or “processing” on OnlyFans and that she changed her bank account information in case there was a problem on her end but she still hasn’t. not received his payments.

“OnlyFans is useless and doesn’t respond to me,” Oshiri wrote in her Reddit post. She also clarified that her bank “says it’s all on OnlyFans” to fix. “If I didn’t have any savings, I’d be screwed,” she says.

OnlyFans pays creators by payments: creators can manually withdraw funds from their current balance on the site or set up automatic withdrawals on a weekly or monthly basis. According to OnlyFans, once withdrawals are requested, it “usually takes three to five business days to process” and appear in creators’ bank accounts. Creators can track their payments using OnlyFans’ “payment requests” feature.

Rose, who goes by @DolceRose on OnlyFans, commented on Oshiri’s post saying that she also hadn’t received her last payment from OnlyFans – and noticed that her recent payments from OnlyFans were from of a “different name” and are not “consistent”. .”

“Honestly, it’s such a slap in the face to have next to no customer support after we gave them so much of our revenue,” Rose wrote in r/OnlyFansAdvice. “I’m just over today.” In response to her requests, Rose says OnlyFans asked her to submit PDFs of her bank statements, which she says is “BS.”

In the Reddit thread, the creators of OnlyFans shared information about their attempts to access their Only Fans payments. Ms Luna (@mslunatoyou) says she withdrew a payment on October 2 and expected to receive funds by October 4. Although the payment appears as “processed” on OnlyFans, Ms Luna says she has not received the money.

Asher Lee (@suwontok) also said he requested payment on October 2 and is still waiting for funds.

In an email to the Daily Dot, Lee said he hadn’t been paid for “almost a month” and that around $860 was “floating somewhere” after trying to withdraw it. He said now he was too scared to withdraw another $800. Lee said he was relying on his savings, but they are “running out.”

“I definitely need my payment ASAP,” Lee told the Daily Dot. “I have a mortgage payment and a car payment, as well as credit card bills that I need to pay and use to pay for food.”

Lee said that when he contacted OnlyFans Support via Twitter, OnlyFans acknowledged that he was aware of the issue, but that it had been fixed and his October 2 payout “should be in process.”

Lee also said this isn’t the first time he’s had trouble receiving his payments from Only Fans as a Canadian creator: he’s still waiting for the $398 that was lost during a payment in 2021.

“I’m very angry about this,” Lee said.

Other commenters on Oshiri’s post shared how some payment issues were resolved using Skrill, an online banking platform.
