Frequently Asked Questions

What is Fanbase?

Fanbase is a free-to-download, free-to-use social media network, that enables anyone to fully monetize their content via subscription at $4.99 a month. Subscriptions give you exclusive access to images, audio chat rooms, short-form content, and long-form content, such as podcasts, docu-series, movies, and more, all while being free to download with no content suppression that older applications employ. Users can also put their content behind a paywall as well. Fanbase utilizes virtual currency known as “Love” and users can give “loves” on any type of content on Fanbase. This allows everyone to profit from their creative work rather than the other way around.

Fanbase is the innovator of the subscription-based model, “microcasting,” where the user shares the content directly with their Fanbase, which puts microcast and monetization potential at the forefront for the benefit of all users, redefining monetized creative.

Show me the money!

You can earn as much as you want! Secure the bag whenever you are ready! Fanbase splits all revenue earned 50/50 with you and deposits it directly into your bank account on the first of every month after having met the minimum $25. Your revenue does not expire and it accumulates month by month.

When do I get paid?

All payments go out on the 1st of every subsequent month when you reach $25, but we do have exceptions on holidays or weekends as the payment might come right after these. It can take up to 48 hours for the payments to be processed. If you are being paid for the first time, it might take up to 7 days due to first-time required validations.

Bear in mind: you can’t cash up money inside the app! All buying transactions are done through in-app purchases. Payments, however, are done externally, so your billing profile must be updated. You can update your billing profile inside your profile settings.

You can also always keep track of your revenue in your revenue dashboard, which is located in a tab inside the notification section.

How does revenue work? 

In order to get paid every month, you’ll need to accumulate at least $25 and have your Revenue Profile complete. This is the only way to earn money on Fanbase!

To complete your Revenue Profile:

  1. Head over to Settings and scroll all the way down to Revenue Profile.
  2. There you’ll need to add your personal information and a bank account or debit card. Bear in mind, we do not keep any private information, and all data is exclusively handled by a secure third-party payment gateway. All info gathered allows us to pay out users and issue appropriate tax returns.

What are Loves and what’s the difference with Big Loves?

On Fanbase you can either like or love a post. What’s the difference? Likes are free whereas Loves give the content creator 1 penny per loved post. It’s basically your way of showing appreciation and donating to the content creator. A Big Love, on the other hand, consists of multiple Loves: 100, 500 or 1000 Loves in one action.
