...So apparently the site just up and disappeared and models were owed payouts. The twitter last updated last month but in a blog post and the blog is no longer online. Anyone know the backstory?

They lost their credit card processor a while back, last year I think? They were paying international models only by PayPal or wire, American models, I don't know how. They refused to pay me and stopped replying to emails several months ago. Now they just took the money and run...oh well, at least I don't have to go and individually delete hundreds of clips now. They owed me several hundred dollars. I had been using them for several years. I wish we could take them to court.

Oh, it's bad. I wonder if Princess Rene is still affiliated with this mayhem. Around the beginnings of the pandemic they offered 90% payouts probably to lure more people in to scam them, leaving a message that sounded altruistic like they want to help people, when they really wanted to bring more models back so they could take 100% of the earnings I guess, before they deleted the site. Sucks that in the adult industry we don't have much recourse to the law for this kind of thing, especially if we don't live in the same country as them.

they're gone, with your money. These sites come and go. remember youkandy? epassporte? amvc? avn stars? and a lot more. They weren't making any money, the traffic was low. I'm guessing they allowed videos that was banned by their bank/processor. All of those clip/fan sites are getting killed by only-fans, they can't compete.

edit
here are a red flag I found
their address is a UPS mail drop store - a major front facing site like this MUST have an actual physical address https://web.archive.org/web/20170701070107/http://www.kinkbomb.com/library/Model-Release-Form.pdf

Good riddance to KinkBomb.While I feel for those who didn't receive their payments; I am glad their company died.They gave me hell in order to get my last paycheck from them.

Kinkbomb has always been the lowest traffic most mismanaged site and most of us knew it. They ran off most of the highest better selling clip artists by screwing with payment and having no idea how to promote the site. I'm shocked they lasted this long.

Have to disagree there. Clips4sale, IWantclips and Loyalfans all seem to be thriving and are super careful (annoyingly careful) about policing content to protect the site and access to their payment processors.

I've been focusing most of my effort on Loyalfans lately although I do still have an Onlyfans. Loyalfans has way more features, actually listens to creators and makes changes for us. Also most importantly for my own particular market there are a lot of top dommes who have moved to Loyalfans exclusively, bringing along their clients. I find it much easier to make more from each client because there are more ways to provide personal interaction tailored to each particular fetish.

I had a problem getting paid from them for a while but then they started paying me regularly. They probably owed me about $80 before the site disappeared so it's not that bad of a loss but I'm sure others lost much more.

Actually I have some interesting info on Onlyfans 'competing'. Going to start a different thread for it though. Thanks for the info everyone, and I agree. The site gave me weird sloppy vibes.
