In a world where smartphone apps are more common than a daily cup of coffee, it’s baffling to think that Onlyfans doesn’t have an App. Curious as to why this billion-dollar business isn’t cashing in on the app market?

The key reason is that Onlyfans would lose 30% of their revenue if they created an app in App Store. For example, for every in-app purchase, Onlyfans would have to par a 30% fee to Apple.

If companies try to by-pass the 30% fee, they get banned. That’s the reason why Fortnite got banned on Apple store.

The App Store Fee

I personally believe the main reason is the 30% fee. If you are making 100 million dollars from iPad & iPad users, why would you give away 30% of your revenue? That’s a huge deal. Onlyfans users can still navigate the site through a web browser and do everything they could on an app.

Adult Content On App Store

As much as we’d like to think that creating an app is a free-for-all, the truth is that both Apple and Google have stringent guidelines for what can and cannot be on their respective app stores.

Unfortunately for OnlyFans, a platform primarily known for its adult content, both Apple and Google’s policies prohibit any explicit content that could potentially violate their guidelines. So, while OnlyFans might be a goldmine, app stores aren’t willing to bring it into their vault.

The Workaround That Works (Sort of)

OnlyFans, however, hasn’t let the app store restrictions hold them back. They’ve cleverly created a mobile-friendly website that almost mimics the experience of using an app.

Users can access their favorite content creators, make transactions, and stay updated on the latest happenings without needing to download anything. This workaround has allowed OnlyFans to thrive, despite the lack of an official app. 

Will Onlyfans Create An App In The Future?

OnlyFans has expressed a desire to create an app in the past, but the guidelines have them feeling like they’ve hit a brick wall. But let’s not lose hope just yet. If we’ve learned anything from tech giants like Facebook and Instagram, it’s that companies can and do pivot to fit into ever-changing landscapes. So who knows?

Maybe OnlyFans will find a way to adapt their content, create a separate platform for non-explicit content, or even convince app stores to ease up on their guidelines.

The Future of OnlyFans

In the meantime, while we wait for the missing OnlyFans app to make its grand entrance (or not), the platform continues to grow exponentially. More and more content creators are joining, offering a wide variety of content to satisfy every interest.

Whether it’s fitness, cooking, or the platform’s signature risqué content, there’s something for everyone.

While the lack of an official OnlyFans app may seem like a disadvantage, it hasn’t stopped the platform from thriving. So, for now, we’ll just have to rely on the handy mobile-friendly website and keep our fingers crossed for an app to appear on the horizon.

Wrap Up!

And there you have it, folks! The mystery of the missing OnlyFans app is a tale of strict app store guidelines and a big fee they would have to pay to App Store and Play Store.

While we can’t say for sure whether an OnlyFans app will ever grace our smartphones, one thing is for sure – this billion-dollar business isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

According to Sexualalpha, Onlyfans has 71% of mobile users, so if Google and Apple changed their terms and conditions, the app would benefit their business greatly.
