Looking to buy stocks in OnlyFans from Australia? You might be in for a wait.

OnlyFans is a UK site where content creators and adult entertainers charge a subscription fee to access their video content. The platform is particularly well-known for its pornographic content streamed live to viewers globally.

According to a report from Bloomberg, the company is looking to raise capital with a proposed $1 billion valuation. The company has enjoyed high growth in the last year thanks to an uptick in subscriptions during the pandemic.

How to buy shares in OnlyFans

Unfortunately, you can't easily buy shares in OnlyFans because it has not listed on a stock exchange. However, there are rumours that this might happen soon in the future.

If it does list on a stock exchange, you'll want to make sure that you're ready. As a London-based company, it may choose to list on the London Stock Exchange, or it may go public in the United States, which is more accessible globally.

When (if) that happens, you'll be able to buy shares through an online broker. Depending on which market it lists in, you may need to choose a global broker, with access to US or UK stocks.

  1. Choose a platform. If you're a beginner, our share-trading platform table below can help you choose.
  2. Open your account. You'll need your ID, bank details and tax file number.
  3. Confirm your payment details. You'll need to fund your account with a bank transfer, debit card or credit card.
  4. Search the platform for stock code: All listed stocks have a stock code. OnlyFans does not have one because it has not filed to list on a stock exchange at the time of writing.
  5. Research OnlyFans shares. The platform may provide the latest information available or you can do your own research.
  6. Buy your OnlyFans shares. It's that simple.

The whole process can take as little as 15 minutes.

Buying ahead of the IPO

Before a company lists on the stock exchange, it will make pre-listed stock available to some investors. Usually these are institutional or wholesale (high-net-worth) investors, although sometimes everyday investors can buy in if they hold an account with a participating broker.

Keep an eye out for more information. If OnlyFans submits an official prospectus to go public, we should get more of an idea on whether it's possible to buy pre-listed stock and how to go about it.
