Subscriptions are a key part of an OnlyFans creator’s income, but tipping, especially tied with messaging and custom content, is where some creators get fans to spend the most money throughout their pages.

OnlyFans creator Charlotte Lavish runs a free and a paid VIP page on OnlyFans, but said she makes more money from her free account because her fans message and tip her most there.

“I have some people that will just tip me to get me to talk to them first because whoever is tipping you goes to the top of your chat,” Lavish said.
