Selling explicit content online is probably one of the easiest ways to secure yourself a side or even a main income these days.
With so many new platforms welcoming adult content, you can just take the nudes you use to spoil fuckboys for free, upload them on some of these, sit back, and watch those precious dollars pile up in your bank account.
In this article, I will shine the light on a new platform called PocketStars.
To be honest, I couldn’t find exactly how old this platform actually is, but by the lack of reviews, I just assumed that it’s a new site.
With that said, in today’s article, I want to show you how to make money on PocketStars by selling your creative adult content.
But as always, first things first:
What is PocketStars?
PocketStars is a relatively new, custom-built fan-site that provides content creators, influencers, and adult performers a platform to upload their content (pictures, videos, albums) and sell them through a subscription model service.
The site is relatively easy to use and navigate through. It has a simple layout, and everything is just there for you to choose from.
On the top right corner of the website, you have the login button, and right below it, you will find the seven categories you can choose to look into.
Besides that, if you click on the very last button next to the categories, you will be able to look for a specific hashtag and find the specific things you like.
You will find their terms and conditions at the bottom of the page, FAQs category, and contact.
It’s a very simple website, it has colors that are pleasant to the eye, unlike others that may be too bright and tacky, and it definitely wins 10/10 for the layout!
How To Start a PocketStars Account as a Seller?
Starting a seller’s or a “Star” account on PocketStars is also an incredibly brief and uncomplicated process. Here is the step-by-step guidance that consists of only a few steps.
Create an account
First, you need to sign up and come up with your username and password. It doesn’t matter if you write a funny username initially; you will be able to change it at any given time.
Then, PocketStars will send you an email to verify your email address. This entire process lasts no longer than a minute.
Verify your account
Once you’re in, you want to verify your account by clicking your profile icon on the top right corner and choosing ID Verification.
Here, you need to fill up a long-ish form and attach a front and back photo of your ID plus a safe-for-work selfie of you holding the same ID.
Your account should be verified in a short time.
What Kind Of Content Is Allowed On PocketStars?
You can post any kind of legal content on PocketStars.
This also includes fetishes such as ABDL, BDSM, Watersports, Scat, which is interesting since these particular fetishes are banned on nearly any other popular platform, including ManyVids and OnlyFans.
However, PocketStars doesn’t approve of and will remove your content (and probably ban your account) if you post, upload, or share any content that is harmful, inaccurate, threatening, abusive, vulgar, violent, indecent, and contains any suggestions of sexual activity with minors, animals, or non-consenting individuals.
Read their full list of content you may or may not post in their terms and conditions under section 9: Prohibited Uses.
How to keep your content safe?
PocketStars respects all creators’ intellectual property rights, and they comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).
They do not permit copyright infringing activities and will be more than happy to remove all content and submissions if it includes copyrighted material.
If you see someone is sharing your content on their platform, make sure to report it immediately and bring out some proof like screenshots and explanations so that their customer service can help you out promptly.
On the other hand, you should definitely consider watermarking your content. This may not prevent someone from sharing your content online, but it could potentially bring more viewers towards your other paid content.
How Does PocketStars Subscription Work?
PocketStars subscription, like everything on the website, is straightforward.
As a Star, you need to sign up with your bank details, update your profile with your picture, banner, and a description of what you and your services are about, upload content, set a monthly price, and wait for the money to start rolling in.
Of course, while you’re waiting, you may want to focus on improving your content as there is always room for improvement and making new friendships and relationships through social media, as this is one of the easiest ways to bring viewers to pay for your content.
Here’s how PocketStars payouts work:
Does PocketStars cost money to join?
No, joining for PocketStars is free; however, the platform keeps a percentage of your earnings.
As a Star, you will receive 80% of every transaction (subscriptions, tips, PPV purchases) while PocketStars gets to keep 20% for hosting your profile.
What is the minimum withdrawal amount?
The minimum withdrawal is currently set to $200.
Yup, this is quite a lot for many new creators who are just starting out and haven’t amassed a following yet; however, PocketStars is quite flexible when it comes to this, and you can negotiate alternatives by sending their support team an email on email@example.com.
PocketStars payment methods
Since PocketStars is a UK company, they are a part of the SWIFT network and require a SWIFT BIC code to transfer your payments.
Luckily, over 95% of banks globally are also part of the SWIFT network that enables international transfers; therefore, you shouldn’t have an issue with this.
However, PocketStars is quite flexible when it comes to this, too, and they are more than happy to discuss alternative payment methods if this payment method isn’t an option. All you have to do is send them an email with your explanation.
US creators tax form
US creators on PocketStars can fill out the W9 form and file an annual tax return to the IRS.
PocketStars affiliate program
PocketStars is currently testing their affiliate program for webmasters and models to be able to earn a commission when a new user signs up through their unique link.
As the program is not currently public, you can discuss this option with them via email and get more information on the commission percentage, etc.
5 Advantages of Using PocketStars To Sell Your Adult Content
Here are several highlighted advantages of using PocketStars to sell your adult content:
New platform = higher growth opportunity
This platform looks relatively new, which means you will have a higher opportunity to grow than you would on other platforms such as OnlyFans and ManyVids as these are not only oversaturated but also feature professional pornstars, models, etc.
If you are an inexperienced beginner, you should be a little more realistic and opt for a smaller platform where you can leave your footprint.
PocketStars will most definitely grow with time, of that I have no doubt. The platform is an absolute breath of fresh air to navigate through, so it would be a great time for you to start.
Promotional graphics/Feature page
PocketStars is incredibly helpful towards new creators, and they can give you free promotional graphics as well as push you on the Feature Page, where you will be seen as soon as someone enters the website.
The Feature Page shows 15 different creators who have a minimum of 50 pieces of content on their page.
The creators are randomly selected and changed every day to ensure a diverse mix of race, gender, body type, and type of content is featured for users to choose from.
Besides that, PocketStars has over 45,000 followers on Twitter, where they regularly give shoutouts to their creators.
I follow them on Twitter, and I like the fact that although they focus on their highest-earning models, they also very frequently give shoutouts to new models and creators that don’t have a high social following, giving them the opportunity to shine through.
No restrictions on your content
Whatever you want to publish, you can do it on PocketStars.
They have no restrictions on the nature of content uploaded on your profile. You could be posting anything from teasings, straight-up porn, softcore and hardcore content, and even some more extreme fetishes that are usually not allowed on other popular adult sites.
PocketStars also gives you the option to open up multiple pages on their website that focus on different things.
For example, if you can be both dominant and a submissive – there’s no need to merge both of these together when you can separate them and have users pay double if they want to see you in both situations.
You are your own boss
You are in charge of everything. You have the ability to set your own subscription rates and price your items as you please without any interference from PocketStars.
So, from the type of content you produce to setting your subscription rates, everything is entirely up to you.
DMCA takedown policy
Piracy is everywhere on the Internet, and it is a general nuisance every one of us has dealt with at some point.
However, PocketStars has a DMCA takedown policy that allows you to report any use of your content that wasn’t authorized by you as the copyright owner, your agent, or the law.
But besides that, I just want to mention again that you should consider watermarking your content. It’s an easy 1-minute process that you can do on Canva to save you the headache in the future.
