Did you just search “What is the pending balance?” Don’t worry. It’s one of the most frequently asked questions we get at OnlyFans. Luckily, the pending balance, like many features of our payment system, is simple to understand. You’ll be a whiz at OnlyFans payments in no time!

OK, So What Is The Pending Balance?

Whenever you earn anything on OnlyFans– subscriptions, PPVs, tips, you name it– those funds will first enter your pending balance. That money will stay in your pending balance for eight days before rolling over into your current balance, and be eligible for you to withdraw.

To see which payments are in your pending balance and which are in your current balance, head to your ‘Earnings’ section. If a payment has a checkmark next to it, it’s no longer pending!

Understanding Your Current Balance

Funds have entered your current balance, you can withdraw them to your bank account. Keep in mind, you’ll only be able to withdraw funds if your current balance meets the minimum threshold of $20.

You can always choose to manually withdraw funds from your current balance. However, many creators choose to set up weekly or monthly automatic withdrawals. Any pending funds that roll into your current balance by the automatic withdrawal date specified in your ‘Statements’ page will be included in that payout.

How Long Until I Get Paid?

After you request a withdraw (manually or automatically), it typically takes three to five business days to process into your bank account. To track the status of a withdraw request, head to the ‘Payout Requests’ section in your statements. Once we’ve dispersed the money to your account, you’ll see a checkmark next to the payment in question.

Think Like A Business

Being an OnlyFans creator is a lot like running your own business. And any good business owner understands how their company’s payroll system works. It might not be the most glamorous part of the job, but we can all agree that getting paid is important. We suggest spending some time getting familiar with all the administrative tools in your OnlyFans account so you’ll never have to guess where your money is again!
