When you go to a restaurant, knowing how, where and how much you should tip is an important part of navigating any given culture. In the UK it’s common to tip 10 to 15%, but in New Zealand or Japan you might not tip at all, whereas Americans are famous for tipping copiously.
Given that the digital world is international (and often anonymous), it’s interesting to see how tipping culture has developed online. A tip is usually defined as money voluntarily given as a reward for a service. Online, that service is typically a stream, interaction with a fan, or a great piece of content. The psychology of tipping is complex, but fans generally tip content creators to show appreciation or gratitude, to get a positive reaction, or with the social conscience that financially supporting a creator will incentivise them to continue making good content.
Content creators can perform all of these tip-worthy services on OnlyFans, as well as foster the kind of fan relationships than engender tipping. Tipping is a key way free OnlyFans accounts earn. Pay-to-subscribe accounts can be tipped as well, by fans who want to go the extra mile.
