Payout rates and frequency for FanCentro and AVN Stars
How much you get paid and how often you get paid are both very important no matter how much you make. We’ll compare what percentage you get as well as how often you can make withdrawals from FanCentro and AVN Stars.
FanCentro pays out 75% to its content creators with the other 25% going towards website maintenance, payment processing fees, and any other regular business expenses.

AVN Stars pays out 80% to its creators. The other 20% goes to cover operating expenses like credit card processing, hosting costs, and paying referral fees.
Models on AVN Stars are able to make withdrawals from their accounts on-demand. There is a $25 minimum for each payout and additionally a 7 day hold period from the time you earn the money to when you can withdraw it. This is to safeguard against fraudulent purchases.
Models are also able to set up automatic withdrawals weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly.
AVN Stars pays out 5% more than FanCentro and allows for manual payouts. For those reasons, we have to give this one to AVN Stars. The three week wait period with FanCentro and higher minimums to make a withdraw means if you’re a new model, you’re going to not only take time to build up to those minimums but you also have to wait a few weeks to get paid when you reach the minimums.
Manual withdrawals with AVN Stars are fantastic for models. You have the choice to get paid daily, weekly, or monthly. Hell, you could wait for months and get a big deposit just to flex!
Which platform helps models get more fans
Whether you’re a brand new model or a seasoned veteran with a legendary following, a platform that helps with your discovery is great. Both AVN Stars and FanCentro have great features that help you get discovered to constantly increase your subscribers and earnings.
FanCentro has a great homepage that instantly features popular models. There is a great filter also that allows users to find the newest models, most popular, and the best-selling products.
Another great part of FanCentro that helps you get promoted is their affiliate program which gives people an incentive to promote your work. You can provide images you want to be distributed and the affiliate will promote them with a special link back to your page. If someone makes a purchase, they get a percentage of that sale.
On AVN Stars, there is an explore page that has so many features for discovery. The explore all page is a catch-all for the most recently uploaded content. There are also filters to see the most recently uploaded videos, photos, clips, and stories. Whoever is live, as well as the top models on the platform, are shown as well.
The search function on AVN Stars acts as its own directory with whatever search term you put in. No matter what word you put in, you can refine your search by filtering by people, posts, videos, photos, and clips. Both the explore page and search encourage posting frequently and getting your content out there.
Both FanCentro and AVN Stars have great methods for you to get discovered by new fans. With FanCentro you could have an army of affiliates promoting your work for you. Of course, you need to create compelling content that converts visitors into buyers.
AVN Stars’ contests help out so much in discovery & promotion. When a contest is over, whoever makes top placement is permanently advertised if anyone goes back to those older contests. If you get in the top 10 it turns into a fantastic opportunity (the prize money is also amazing).
It’s hard to say which platform is better when it comes to promotion and discoverability for a model. We’ll give this one a tie. If you know how to create fantastic content, both the affiliate promotions and the contests can be beneficial in the long run.
Which referral program is better
In case you don’t know, referral programs are incentives for you, the model, for finding new models to a platform. Both AVN Stars and FanCentro have great referral programs.
The FanCentro referral program pays out 10% earnings for every model you refer to the site. This is for the lifetime of the model on the platform and the 10% does not come out of the model’s earnings. There is no limit to the number of models you can refer to FanCentro.
The AVN Stars referral program pays out 5% earnings for every model you refer to the site for their lifetime. There is no limit to how much you can earn from a model you refer to AVN Stars.
For this one, we’re going to have to give the edge to FanCentro. If you have 10 models making $10,000 each a month, the difference of 5% is $5,000! That’s incredible.
If you don’t plan on recruiting additional models to the platform, this shouldn’t be a factor.
Should you use FanCentro or AVN Stars
While FanCentro and AVN Stars are both fantastic platforms, we have to give the win to one of them. Because both platforms can work for you, the biggest factor over which you should use is the referral program. If you plan on recruiting and helping models, FanCentro’s 10% beats out AVN Stars’ 5%.
If you don’t plan on recruiting models, AVN Stars’ contests and social media-esque format will help you grow your account with the quickness. For new models, this can be very beneficial. If you have a solid following, either platform could work for you.
