Fansly Vs Fanvue: The Difference Between The Two Adult Subscription Platform
What is Fanvue? and how to make money on Fanvue as an adult content creator compared to Fansly?
The way we consume entertainment is changing and gives people more power than anyone else. As the world is fast adopting the internet, it is allowing many people to earn multiple streams of income through a wide range of skills.
With the new subscription platforms emerging with each offering something new and something different; the competition is ever-growing and for a creator to find a platform that meets their needs is extremely difficult since the competition on Onlyfans is the strongest; as the platform is occupied by some of the biggest names within the adult industry.
To overcome this, as an adult content creator you have to do some research and understand if what you are selling would meet the eye of the subscriber(s) or not. For this purpose, the two younger competitors of Onlyfans are Fansly and Fanvue. Both are where you can create adult content and make money from your subscribers, just like you do on Onlyfans.
However, both have something different and thus it is important for you as a creator to know this difference so you can select either of the two.
In this article, I will make that easier for you so you select the best that fits your needs.
What is Fanvue?
Starting in August 2021, Fanvue is growing slowly and steadily. The subscription platform is aimed at many industries including chefs, artists, developers, authors, models, influencers, adult content creators, and much more.
This is why some people term Fanvue as the “Onlyfans” in the beginning since Onlyfans also started to be a subscription platform for many industries but it grew itself later to be known as an adult content platform.
What is Fansly?
Fansly, which was also founded at the same time as Fanvue was in, unlike Onlyfans or Fanvue, is designed to be an adult subscription platform, and therefore you as a subscriber will only have adult creators.
It is gaining traction over the past few months especially after the Onlyfans announcement of turning down all the adult content on their platform, however, that did not happen but it has stirred a debate among the adult creators if they can trust Onlyfans or not.
Fansly Vs Fanvue: The difference between the two content subscription platforms
While the goal of both platforms is to give content creators a voice and a safe place to express themselves. However, there are plenty of differences among the two including the following:
Difference between Fanvue Vs Fansly based on Subscription Fees:
One of the biggest differences between the two platforms is the fees that they charge from their content creators. Instead of a fixed fee per month, both platforms charge a percentage. Fansly charges 20% and gives back 80% to the adult content creator. On the other hand, Fanvue charges over 15% and gives back 85% to the adult content creator.
On the surface it may not appear too much but when you start earning $1000+ per month, that 5% does make a huge difference and you have to be cautious about what you choose.
While both the platforms have been regarded to have good content protection systems in place. However, there have been instances where models from Fansly have reported they found the free-flow of their exclusive content to different parts of the internet.
Of course, your exclusive content is to be protected by the platform and to ensure its exclusivity from them. Such instances have not yet been reported by the adult models of Fanvue.
The user experience of Fanvue Vs Fansly:
As they say “design is subjective.” It's true and stands truer for everyone.
But that is not all.
My time spent on Fanvue had been much better and more convenient because of their user experience. Their website's overall colours, themes, and design are a lot better than Fansly since it appears quite close to that of Instagram.
On the other hand, Fanvue’s user experience felt like something that has copied Onlyfans. It is limited and does not offer much as compared to that Fansly’s.
Being seen or getting discovered on Fanvue Vs Fansly:
Fansly knows that every content creator struggles, and in order to overcome their struggles, they have to allow their profiles to be visible to as many subscribers as possible.
Thus if you are a content creator on Fansly, you will have to slightly be less worried about being seen by your subscribers. In addition to this, Fansly is also working on a search bar where users will be able to find relevant profiles that suit their interests and needs.
Fanvue does not have any avenues for their creator’s profiles to be seen when a potential user searches for their likes because just like that of Onlyfans, there is no search bar on Fanvue.
If we compare Fanvue Vs Fansly in term of getting discovered, Fanvue has launched a new feature called Fanvue Discover where your free content can be discovered by the creators.
Payment method for creators on Fansly Vs Fanvue:
Fanvue is great for payments.
As a Fanvue content creator, you will be able to receive your payments within the next few minutes, usually, it is about 25 to 45 minutes. Many say this may change as more creators come to Fanvue, and their system is overloaded but for now, it takes less than an hour.
Fansly payments can take 2 or 3 days to finally arrive and thus you will have to wait quite long to receive your payments.
As Fanvue is newer and aims to grow in the coming years, one of the great things about Fanvue is that its developers are extremely welcoming to the demands and the requests made by the content creators.
Fansly is bringing some of the much-needed new features but their team is not as cooperative as that of Fanvue.
Therefore, in case you have something that you wish should be added to the platform or removed from the platform, the chance is Fanvue will listen to you.
While both platforms provide an extensive list of insight details that help you to curate your content for better results. However, Fanvue’s advanced insights are far better as compared to that of Fansly’s.
Fanvue’s insights are better curated, updated on time, easier for a newbie to understand, and also help you to identify which area you need to target.
Fansly vs Fanvue: which is better for adult content creators?
With all the points discussed earlier, it is clear that both platforms are amazing in their way and to give a winner over another is difficult.
Fanvue is an amazing platform and I think they are very proactive when we talk about helping creators make more money.
Despite this, I would say you as an adult content creator, the best idea is to explore both the platforms and then see what works the best for you since you may have different needs and areas of focus which may perhaps be better in one platform over the other.
