With the emergence of OnlyFans and similar sites in recent years it has given influencers and the public the ability to create a revenue stream for themselves by selling content behind a protective paywall to their subscribers. This model of reaching a new audience and ultimately a payday has become very popular amongst the adult sector in particular as they take advantage of the OnlyFans payment solutions.

Whilst the OnlyFans model has exploded, the model of charging their content creators a fee of circa 20% has inevitably left a gap in the market for alternative providers to seize on this opportunity and create a rival brand that can provide the same service for less of a cut.

However – one common stumbling block that new providers come up against is obtaining a merchant account for an adult website as this is deemed to be “high risk” in the world of acquiring and payments.

With more traditional adult base businesses such as porn websites or even adult toys websites and shops struggling to obtain merchant services to enable them to take card payments due to acquirers not wanting to link themselves to this vertical through reputational management reasons, we at ePayment wanted to create an offering that would help the adult sector accept payments.

As the payments on any adult based website is vital for any success of the business it is important that the payments processor for your merchant account knows exactly what the business is doing at the point of application so that we can be safe in the knowledge that your adult business merchant account will not be terminated.

We can work with you to put together an application for your adult business merchant account and then work with you to progress the application through to getting you all set up and processing payments.

ePayment Solutions has a fantastic relationship with high-risk acquirers who will board adult businesses and this type of application is bread and butter for our high risk department.

We will work with you each step of the way and help you get everything in place to get your adult business all set up and accepting payments through your own merchant account.

But before you start with your adult payment application here are a few things you should know about your adults’ payments applications:
