Loyalfans is one of the newer premium social media platforms online after a rebranding and new website launch earlier in 2020. Loyalfan’s features and tools include customizable messaging, live streaming, video chat, audio recording, video and photo sharing, and more. The platform has a great payout structure at 80%, and has referral bonuses for model referrals as well as fan referrals, allowing models to earn when one of their fans subscribes to another model!

Loyalfans has one of the best referral programs out there for fan club platforms, which we’ll get into more on later in the article. If you’re interested in doing ASMR type content, Loyalfans has that option covered with their pay per voice messages.
Payout rates & frequency for IsMyGuy and Loyalfans
The next thing to think about when choosing a platform is how much you’ll get paid, how often you’ll get paid and what the minimum required to get paid out is.
IsMyGuy pays out 80% on all subscriptions, video sales, and tips and pays out 70% on all live streaming. The 20 and 30 percent, respectively, goes toward payment processing, hosting, maintenance, and research & development.
Loyalfans pays out 80% to its content creators with the other 20% going towards regular website maintenance, paying staff, payment processing expenses, and any other business expenses.
The nice thing about IsMyGuy and Loyalfans is they both pay out at an industry high 80%. No difference on this front.
The pay periods for IsMyGuy are the 1st to the 15th and the 16th through to the end of the month. There is a $50 minimum for withdrawals and they are automatically deposited by the 2nd & 17th of the month, assuming you meet the minimum requirements. If not, those earnings are carried over to the next month until you break that threshold.
Loyalfans pays out twice per month with payment periods being the 1st through the 15th and the 16th through to the end of the month. All payouts will be delivered within 7 working days from the end of the payment period.
The minimum payout depends on your payout method:
- ACH/Direct Deposit (U.S., U.S. Territories, and Canada): $50
- Paxum: $50
- SEPA: $100
- Wire Transfer: $150
Both platforms pay twice a month and have low minimum for withdrawals. Like the payout percentage, no difference here.
Which platform helps models get more fans
For both new and seasoned content creators, organically growing your following is such a great way to increase income every month. While some platforms let you sign up and you’re on your own, both IsMyGuy and Loyalfans have ways to help you grow as an influencer and model.
IsMyGuy boasts a massive network on social media that helps new fans find you. The onsite search allows users to browse by the newest verified men. Although it is not a requirement, if you are exclusive to the platform they will promote you heavily on their social network and even feature you on the homepage of the platform.
Loyalfans has a prominent “Top Creator” button on the menu bar that filters into a new section where fans can scroll infinitely through the newest members of the site.
They have a new “Video Store” button next to the “Top Creator” button where users can easily browse all clips for sale.
Their social media accounts are growing daily and they regularly promote their models and influencers. Because they’re a platform that is adult-friendly, they consistently showcase the hottest and highest performing models on the platform.
As you can see, both platforms are looking to help you grow as a performer. From promoting you on their social media to showcasing you on the front page, both IsMyGuy and Loyalfans are working for you.
Which referral program is better
If you don’t know, a referral program is an added bonus for you, the model, for recruiting users to the platform. In most cases, this is for recruiting other models.
IsMyGuy’s referral program offers you 5% of all earnings for every model you refer forever. You can refer an unlimited amount of models.
The Loyalfans referral program is one of the best in the business. You receive 5% for every creator that you refer to Loyalfans (which doesn’t come from the model’s 80%). This lasts for the lifetime of a model.
In addition to the 5% for every creator you refer, you will also receive 5% for every customer you have signed up and they spend on another model. This is one of the few fan club platforms that allows you to earn for fans that spend money on other content creators.
Loyalfans crushes it with their referral program. For every fan you bring to the website you get paid when they buy from anyone else? That’s absolutely incredible. If you have a massive following of fans ready to purchase, this is money in the bank.
Which should you use IsMyGuy or Loyalfans
Both platforms are great for both new models and veteran content creators. If we were brand new models to the industry, we would sign up for IsMyGuy as an exclusive creator to take advantage of getting featured on the homepage.
If we were models with a strong following, Loyalfans’ referral program is absolutely amazing for really monetizing your following. Every time they make a purchase, whether it’s from you or someone else, you make money. That’s incredible.
