Users Of P.o.r.n.h.u.b Can No Longer Pay For Premium Accounts Like Before

Mastercard and Visa announced that they would no longer work with P.o.r.n.h.u.b. Mastercard sited “unlawful content” as the main reason.

On Thursday, Mastercard and Visa announced that they would no longer work with P.o.r.n.h.u.b. With Mastercard, they pointed to the site’s “unlawful content” as the main reason.

The decision came after both firms said that they would look into allegations against the site for containing child sexual abuse content.

In a statement to Bloomberg, Mastercard said that its investigation had confirmed that P.o.r.n.h.u.b had violated Mastercard’s standards prohibiting illegal content.

Following Mastercard’s decision, on Twitter, an official Visa account posted that Visa would suspend P.o.r.n.h.u.b’s acceptance pending the completion of its investigation against the adult content site.

In a statement, P.o.r.n.h.u.b expressed its disappointment for these actions from Visa and Mastercard that came only two days after the site announced that it would ban unverified users from uploading content. According to the site, this policy has never been put in place by any other platform before, including Facebook which is said to have 84 million examples of child sexual abuse imagery in the last three years.

The site had had 118 incidents of child sexual abuse content over the past three years.

Meanwhile, the Internet Watch Foundation reported that P.o.r.n.h.u.b had had 118 incidents over the past three years.

Undoubtedly, removing Mastercard and Visa payments from the adult content website will affect many models who get their source of income from the site.

This is not the first time that a payment processor decided to cut ties with P.o.r.n.h.u.b. Back in November 2019, PayPal stopped working with the site, stating that it discovered certain business payments from P.o.r.n.h.u.b made via PayPay without the company’s permission.

Back in November 2019, PayPal stopped working with the site.

Besides containing videos from porn production companies, the adult content site also allows individual users to make money through their videos directly on the site or through Modelhub, its clip selling service. It remains unclear if the decision of credit companies would impact sex workers. But for years, payment processors have been holding prejudice against sex workers.
