In short - SubscribeStar is an online media content marketplace that operates on a subscription basis. We allow users to expose their talents and earn money. We also provide our users with proper tools to discover information, establish new connections and communicate with the ones who matter.
To read our statement, learn about our values and mission - visit About Us section.
SubscribeStar enables the audience to discover new celebrities/talents or just follow the ones they already know. On another hand, we welcome all stars, established or emerging, in areas including but not limited to music, literature, art, dancing, photography, acting, sports, business, media, finances, science and so on.
If you are vlogger, celebrity or entertainer, teacher or coach, political commentator or radio host, gamers with streaming experience, event venue or event organizer, clerical organization, individual preacher or adult media entertainer - just click "Become a Star" and start your journey!
For the Stars we do have the option to mark their page as "18+ only". This way we can tailor our service with needed precision: subscribers will be clearly warned whenever they access this sort of content so their experience is always safe and enjoyable.
In addition, to pay for the subscription or make a contribution, a subscriber needs to be of legal age for such transactions in his/her area of residency.
Any service which has bank account credentials is supported. Please, let us know if there is a payout method that is more convenient for you - we will definitely consider alternative payout options.
You can unsubscribe at any time - just go to the page "My Subscriptions" and click "Unsubscribe" link that can be found next to the Star's name.
Anyone can become a Referral Associate (even if you already have an account on our site). This role gets the best of both worlds: percentage from the revenue of a Star (if they agree) and/or part of the service fees.
The more Stars Referral Associates bring to SubscribeStar - the more money they get.
This is not a multi-level marketing! You receive a compensation from SubscribeStar directly for each client brought to our platform.
You are able to manage email notifications (updates) under "My Subscriptions" page https://www.subscribestar.com/subscriptions
Just click on the green envelope icon and confirm that you are really want to disable all notifications from selected Star.
You need to be logged in to your account to do so.
To sign in (log in) to SubscribeStar, you can click on the "Log In" link in the upper right corner (for desktop users). If you are on the mobile device - click on the "Menu" icon in the upper right corner of the screen (three stacked lines, aka "triple bar") and then click on the "Log In" link.
As an alternative, you can directly access the login screen by going straight to this page - https://www.subscribestar.com/login .
Please, remember - you can not just "subscribe to the site" - you always subscribe to the particular Star (content creator). Therefore, after you logged in, you probably would want to proceed to the list of your subscriptions - https://www.subscribestar.com/subscriptions .
Contributions can be made by subscription or by the tipping.
Monthly contributions are results of a subscription avenue. If the content creator you would want to support got subscription tier with higher subscription price, then just switch to the higher tier by going to My Subscriptions page ( https://subscribestar.adult/subscriptions ) and clicking on a teal-colored cog icon placed inline with the Star you care.
If the Star doesn't have a higher tier (the subscription tier with a higher price than you currently pay), then you can request your Star to make one. This is easy and will benefit everybody who's involved.
If the aforementioned solution isn't an option, you can resort to the manual donation via "Donate" feature that is available with (almost) all Stars. To make a Donation, simply login into your account and proceed to the Star's profile page. There, you will see the button "Donate" under the Star's avatar (left side of the page).
We do not envision us using PayPal as a payment option in the foreseeable future.
The cardholder's name is between you, us and a payment processor. The Star you contributed (and other members of our community) will see only whatever you put as your Name/Nickname in My Account Settings page - https://subscribestar.adult/account/settings . You can change it at any time.
There may be a number of reasons for some functionality of the site do not work.
From the experience, the most common one is on the client-side based reason. What this means is that you, as a client, may employ a firewall or some sort of popup blocker (browser plugin or extension) that prevent our site from functioning as expected. To understand if this is the real reason behind the issue, please, disable all firewalls and potentially relevant browser plugins and extensions to see if the issue is gone.
If not - just shoot us a message with the description of your problem - we will take care of it.
Yet another reason for some or our site is acting upon you is that you may use an extremely outdated operating system (i.e. Windows XP). We do not support such systems nor we support fairly outdated browsers. We understand that somebody may get emotionally attached to the operating system he/she uses for decades, and recognize the expenses associated with the upgrade. However, we also calculate the cost of supporting such systems and browsers and this is not the route we are ready to follow. Please, upgrade and update as often as it is reasonable for you.
The approval process is complex and non-unidirectional endeavor. On average it takes between 24 and 72 hours for our Onboarding team to review an application and make a decision. However, sometimes it requires more back and forth correspondence between us and an applicant.
To expedite the process, simply add your SubscribeStar profile address to your existing social networks Contact/About pages and/or to the personal website. When done, send us links to these pages with the word EXPEDITE in the subject line. Such links can be removed after the approval process is over. As an alternative, the link to the profile page can be used in a post or publication just to prove that an applicant has full control over that online entity.
At the moment we have the following upload limits (each file):
This will satisfy the absolute majority of our users and we have plans on increasing these limits sooner rather than later.
However, for those who would want to post bigger files we recommend (but not endorse) the following:
If you are willing to remove the file upload limitations, get in touch with our Support Team by email.
Yes, we do.
However, this doesn't mean that we can transfer monies to all countries existing in the world. Please, contact us via [email protected] to verify if we can send payouts to your country.
Yes, there is the way.
Log in to your account. Then, on My Profile Settings page ( https://www.subscribestar.com/profile/settings ) scroll down to the Subscription Tiers section and create a new or edit an existing tier. While doing this, you could set "Limit the number of Subscribers to this tier to ... " number. If you don't enter anything, then there is no limit on how many subscribers can join this particular Subscription Tier.
You don't need to contact us to unsubscribe. Simply log in to your account and proceed to My Subscription page. Then, in the section Active Subscriptions you can manage your subscriptions: unsubscribe from updates, switch Subscription Tier (the price of the subscription, if such an option exists for particular Star) or completely unsubscribe from the Star.
Be aware - by unsubscribing, you instantly lose access to the content of the Star you just unsubscribed from. If you change your mind later, you will be charged full price for the new subscription. We do not issue any refund to the unsubscribed whatsoever, no matter how quickly that unsubscription was following the initial subscription.
Based on our experience, potential Stars who don't have any or have a very limited social media presence will have difficulties with reaching any significant financial success in the subscription business. A large piece of being successful as a Star is to have an established and significant followers base that is ready to make monetary pledges.
However, there are cases when somebody with close to zero social media presence is just a writer or a science persona or an artist or a musician whose content is published mostly in specialized media outlets or in the industry-specific magazines only. If you feel you can prove you've got a solid body of creative work - please, submit the links to your published materials and we will be more than happy to review your application.
Our billing process includes a number of industry-standard verifications. Each of such verifications may result in your card being refused to be processed. As a result, we will receive a decline message, and your card won't be charged. In this case, no attempts to charge your card is going to be made.
Unfortunately, we may have only a generic decline notice in our possession, which won't help you much. The best way to solve this issue is to check if all information related to your payment method is entered correctly.
While you can submit a payout request at will (but not more frequently than once in 14 days), it will take time to process your payout request. In the "Payouts" section of our Terms of Service, you can read the following:
"Payouts of less than $20,000.00 USD are going to be processed within the next 2 weeks after payout request is submitted by the Star. Processing time for the payouts that are equal to or more than $20,000.00 USD is going to be no lesser than 2 weeks and will correlate to the requested amount."
There is a number of reasons why your card can keep getting declined. Please, contact our Support Team ([email protected]) and provide us with the description of the issue with adding your card. We will investigate and reply promptly.
Not an issue. However, before requesting your first payout, you will need to fill the appropriate Tax Identification form (W-9, W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E), where you have to use the name that matches the one on your bank account.
The User pays all and any fees and taxes associated with receiving money on their account.
Subscribers are charged instantly upon the subscription. We offer only one plan - instant charge and billing every 30 days thereafter. Each subscriber billing date/time is individual.
Payouts are available after all submitted payments are settled to our bank account and cleared against possible chargebacks. There much more details on payouts, including some conditions that have to be met.
Our payout process is described in details here - https://www.subscribestar.com/tos#payouts

We do not really delete profiles - we just put them on pause, so they can be easily restored at any moment.
This can be done for number of reasons, but the main is this: the Star was inactive and haven't visited his/hers profile for significant period of time and still has subscribers (or not). All we're trying to do is to prevent any damage in a form of monetary loss and disappointment taken by subscribers. Eventually, subscribers will realize that they paid for the content that wasn't delivered and may request a refund.
With all that being said, all funds collected on the paused profile are kept intact and are safe and will be returned to the Star upon proper payout request or refunded to Subscribers.
If you feel like your profile was disabled or paused, please, contact our Support team at [email protected].
