It’s essential to remember that this data represents median income, not average income. While OnlyFans may offer significant earning potential, there might be individuals who earn substantially more or none at all. In contrast, delivery side hustles typically guarantee some income as long as you put in the work. OnlyFans is primarily a subscription-based platform for creators of adult content, which might explain its higher earning potential compared to delivery services like DoorDash.

Keeper surveyed 2,200 users with both W-2 and 1099 income, indicating they are both employed by a company and self-employed, engaging in a side hustle.
