Why I use ThriveCart as a NSFW Online Educator

Last modified on June 30, 2024

There’s something so satisfying to owning a software. We live in a subscription world, and while for the most part I symbiotically enjoy those relationships with tech tools (it’s nice to try things month-to-month without making a huge commitment, sometimes)… That is not the type of relationship I want to have with my ability to accept payments as a small online business.

That’s just one of the many reasons I decided to invest in a ThriveCart account! For one payment you have access to this popular payment processing tool, forever. Without extra payment processing fees cutting into your profits over time. It was a stressful purchase up front, but now I never have to stress about things like that again. How amazing is that?

That’s literally just one thing that’s so cool about the platform – you also have the ability to offer bumps, add-ons, downsells, payment plans, and even your own affiliate plan for digital offers. This isn’t built for physical product selling or acting as a “cart” (it’s more of a checkout for 1 item that offers other relevant stuff of yours along the way) – but this IS built for digital products/services and I gotta say… I love it.

About ThriveCart

What it is:

Create one-click upsell funnels, bump offers, trials, subscriptions & courses. Create high-converting funnels in a few minutes

Why I like it:

They work with my NSFW payment processor of choice - authorize.net! Which is a true feat, really. The tool makes it really easy to create payment plans for my mentorship and digital products, which I'd be unable to do otherwise as a kinky biz. There's also a way to use this and create your own affiliate plan for your offers which I plan to do in the future and think that's really awesome to have the ability to do that, all without ever having to worry about a monthly charge for the service.


One-time fee. $540 for standard, I use the pro which is $690


While this is a tool that has worked for me, it may not be the right fit for every biz owner. Or for the current stage of your biz. Vet the terms and conditions (especially around adult content) of ANY service you build your business with, in addition to making sure the actual features are a good fit for your needs. 

There are affiliate links in this post and I may earn commission for qualifying purchases.

Also know that you don't "need" any of these tools to build a profitable, sustainable business that support you and your family. I just like sharing because we need more kinky businesses in this world and maybe my learnings will help you grow your own empire!

Oh and if you want personal recommendations for your own kinky biz, I can be your mentor and love to geek out about this! Get Vetted for private mentorship here.
