OnlyFans – How to set up a new account and get verified in 5 simple steps

So, now we know how to make money from your OnlyFans profile we now need to set up our new OnlyFans account and get verified.

To make money on OnlyFans it is imperative that you become verified. Without verifying your account you will not be able to set your subscription price or withdraw your earnings.

Here is a step by step guide on setting up and verifying your OnlyFans account.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not use fake information when filling out the forms. You must use genuine details or you will not be verified. Some people try and use other peoples content to set up a OnlyFans page, you will be unable to verify your details and will get you blocked. Use your details and your content and you will have no problems.




When you arrive on the OnlyFans sign up page you will need to fill in the details on the screen.
These are:

Your email address
A new password

When you fill those out and click “Login” there will be a captcha to confirm you are not a robot, tick the box and press “Login” again and you will be taken to your account.

It is important to go through all of the steps immediately to get yourself on the way to having a verified OnlyFans account. It will take around 24 hours to become verified if you follow the steps given here.


Once you have signed in it will take you to your OnlyFans home page. Don’t waste time going through all the different tabs at this point, you will have plenty of time to familiarise yourself with the ins and outs of OnlyFans and your dashboard once you completed the steps to become verified.

On your homepage you will see in red writing that you have to verify your email. Click on the “verified” button (written in blue), this will take you to a page where you can send a verification email from OnlyFans to your email address.

Now go to your email account and click on the link to verify your email address.

Once you have followed the OnlyFans verification link you should be taken to your account page and see your email has been verified.


This is the most important step in becoming verified on OnlyFans and becoming a active member able to set your subscription price and start making money on OnlyFans.

DO NOT LEAVE THIS STEP! The sooner you complete this step the sooner you will be a verified member of OnlyFans.

You need to go to your OnlyFans profile page.

Here you can set your cover and profile images but more importantly where you go through the verification process to begin making money on OnlyFans.

On this page you will see you can add your main pics (note: you cannot have explicit content within these images).
If you already have a profile and banner image you can upload these now. Don’t worry if not though, you can get to these whilst awaiting your verification. Any images you do use you will want to make sure they are seductive and appealing as these are the images that will draw people to your profile and what they will decide to subscribe on.

The next items on the page are your user name or number and your profile name.

Following this is where you must follow the steps as asked. You will see where it asks you to “add a bank account” where you set your subscription price. You will not be able to set your subscription, add your “about me” or any other info until you have added the bank account.

This is what the screen will look like:


If you click on the “add a bank account” link it will take you to the following page.

If you cant find the page, visit this link

Within this page you must complete your details. Make certain that you have no errors when filling this form out. Any problems and it will delay your verification.
Don’t be disheartened at this point, this information is just for confirming you are who you say you are and, most importantly, your details are correct for payments in the future.

You will need to fill out:

  • Your legal name
  • Address included city and zip/postal code
  • Your Twitter & Instagram user names if you have them (you can add them later)
Then you will need to upload a photo of some form of photographic id, passport or driving license for example.
Below this you will have to upload another photo with your face and the same photo id.
Finally, if you are planning on showing explicit content within your profile when you are verified you will need to check the box confirming this at the bottom of the page.
Once you have completed these steps you are well on the way to becoming verified. When you submit your form you will be taken to a page confirming receipt of your OnlyFans verification application and it will state that it takes between 24 & 48 for this to take place. When I set my account up it was well within a day.
At this point I would recommend having a look around your dashboard and getting a feel for how it works. There isn’t much more you can do until your application has been approved. In the next post I will explain more about what to do once you are approved. While you wait for your application to be approved, you should think about how you want your personal website to look. Having your own personal website is a sign that you are professional and taking things seriously. Which will have an impact on how many subscribers you get on onlyfans. Adult web design is a minefield to navigate. So you should spend some time looking at other website designs and decide on a theme that you want to go with. This will help speed things up when it actually comes to building your website, regardless of if you decide to make it yourself or hire a professional web design company.
