RFC has again innovated to improve the monetization of content for the Independent Producer
and Model community! Our updated payment system automatically equalizes and distributes
streaming and download revenues to models. For example, if a video is uploaded featuring 3
models, the revenues will automatically be divvied up and paid to models. In situations
where the uploader is providing additional value, he is additionally compensated.
Note: JFF recently added a similar feature, but theirs only applies to downloads, which is a
small portion of revenues.
Additionally, rewards are built into the system. Videos with more performers receive
additional revenue share, up to 50%. We boost these payouts in an effort to "equalize"
expected earnings for all models, regardless of cast size..
Models who appear in videos on RFC and wish to be fairly compensated can register as an
Independent Producer and provide basic information and payment details, etc. Managing a
channel on RFC is not required to register and receive compensation, although it is
encouraged to synergistics benefit the entire community. Populating your channel with
information like your Twitter, avatar, photos, stats, etc. can also greatly improve your
RFC will prepay up to $100 per video, subject to approval. This is a quick way to get a cash
infusion. Restrictions apply.
If you refer a new producer to us and they create a channel and upload videos, we'll give you
a $500 referral bonus. Restrictions apply.

How do Channels get paid?
Channel get paid through two mechanisms:
- Fan Signups
- Streaming and Downloads
RFC has comprehensive mechanisms to reward Channel operators for attracting users (and compelling them to signup). For every fan (aka member) that you sign up, you earn a 50% revenue share of their initial and recurring memberships fees for the lifetime of their subscription (ie. until they cancel or they are terminated for non-payment).
You get credited for a signup if:
User clicks your Channel Referral link (on Twitter or anywhere you put it) and joins
before clicking another referral link (ie. from an affiliate banner ad or another
Indie's twitter page). In other words, the last referral link before the join is linked
to the user. This is how most affiliate programs work.
Example of a Channel Referral link:
User arrives at your channel through any means, link, type in, etc. without having
visited any other page of RFC within the past 2 weeks, and joins. This additional
mechanism allows you to additionally claim a user even if they didn't click a
referral link, but they typed in or otherwise clicked a link with your Channel link
in it. (ie. they wrote it down or used their high IQ to type it in directly or
clicked some 3rd party link to your channel that didn't include your affiliate
Example of a Channel link:
Streaming and Downloads
For streaming, channel owners receive a proportional share of 30% of total membership revenues as calculated by the ratio of their channel's uploaded videos' viewed minutes versus total minutes viewed on site.
For downloads, channel owners receive 70% of the purchase price of the download.
