How does OnlyFans work exactly? Well, it is definitely not like TikTok or Instagram where you can just create an account and watch videos all day. On this platform, you actually need to pay for most of the content. This is not to say that there is no free content there.
After all, posting free videos is a great online marketing method for the creators there. But still, the gist of it is not free. If you want to watch some really exciting content, you need to pay for it. Now, let’s make it clear that this is not an article about how to watch premium OnlyFans videos for free.
This is not one of those hacking guides that show you how to bypass the platform’s paywall. However, if you are new to OnlyFans, you might not be aware of how it works. Here, we want to make it clear for you the legal way of unlocking videos there and thus make life easier for you if you are new.
Without further ado, let’s see what you need to do to start watching videos on OnlyFans.
How to unlock OnlyFans videos?
First off, OnlyFans is an online video and other media sharing platform where anyone can join, start uploading content and potentially earn money. Users are allowed to lock their content behind a paywall so that viewers can watch it only if they support them financially.
Moreover, it is a platform that does not care about the type of content that users want to upload. They can upload porn if they want to, which is still in huge demand just like it was when it surfaced on the Internet. The difference is that you can watch exclusive content that isn’t available elsewhere.
Now, let’s say you don’t want to create content on OnlyFans. If you are a consumer, you need to create an account first. The account creation process is pretty simple, as it follows the same scheme as most other websites. Once your account is ready, you can start exploring.
This step begins by clicking on the Home page where you can follow any creator you want. There is a star icon on each one that allows you to add them to favorites. You can create a whole list of the users you are interested in and then check out their profile later.
On each of the profiles, there are the available subscription tiers for the particular content creator. It is completely up to them to decide how much they want to charge for their videos. Another way to get access to videos besides subscribing is by tipping. This way, you can spend less money while still being able to watch the video you are interested in.
Unlocking OnlyFans Videos: The Specifics
After getting your account ready, you are still going to need to add a way to pay for the videos. Before you can subscribe to a user, you need to add a payment method. Adding a card is simple, you just need to go to the Menu and then choose the Add Card option.
Then, every time you tip someone or subscribe to another creator, your card will be charged. So, just to break the steps down for you, unlocking videos on OnlyFans works like this:
- Link a credit card to your account that is valid
- If you find a profile you are interested in, click the “Follow” button
- By clicking “Follow”, your credit card will be charged the amount displayed according to the creator’s subscription tier list
- You can also choose a free account and click “Follow”, which won’t charge your credit card nor your Wallet Credits
- Once OnlyFans has verified that you have followed the profile, the platform unlocks the content for you
- You will be able to look at all the previous videos posted by the creator and the upcoming ones as well for the duration of your subscription
- Your subscription always starts from the day you have subscribed and will last exactly a calendar month
Am I able to get my money back if I haven’t received the content?
In case you have tipped a creator you are interested in and got nothing in return, OnlyFans can’t help you. On the platform, tips are considered as voluntary contributions. There is no refund available in such cases, which is why you need to choose wisely before tipping on a profile.
Moreover, OnlyFans does not manage any user content, has no control over the situation and can’t influence the creator’s decisions either. If you are a fan yourself and you have issues with a particular creator you are following, then you can contact him or her directly.
Then, if you are lucky, the user is going to issue a refund for you depending on the situation.
