Pornhub can not only watch porn movies, but also sell porn movies produced independently by video posters, or publish them for monetization. According to Pornhub, more than 100,000 video contributors have signed a contract with Pornhub, and compensation has been paid to video contributors mainly via PayPal so far. However, because PayPal was suddenly stopped, Pornhub was stuck with payment to video contributors.

PayPal prohibits the use of the service for 'some sexually related goods or services' in its usage policy. Pornhub seems to have been banned from paypal's service because it was judged that paying the video posters with PayPal was in violation of the regulations. A PayPal spokesperson said, “Survey found that Pornhub was paying for a specific business through PayPal without applying for permission. We took measures to prevent these transactions from occurring. ”, Told the technology media Motherboard.

The release of PayPal usage is hopeless because Pornhub's revenue payment system itself has become stuck with PayPal's usage policy. Pornhub says, “I would like to apologize if payments were delayed due to suspension of PayPal. The Pornhub staff is available 24 hours a day to ensure that all payments are processed as quickly as possible with the new payment method. 'I told Motherboard.'

In addition, Pornhub introduced a payment method using virtual currency Verge (XVG) in 2018. Pornhub spokesman said, “PayPal and other major companies' decisions have spoiled efforts to eliminate discrimination and prejudice against sex workers. Pornhub has other payment options for video contributors I would like to increase the options for cryptocurrency in the near future, ”he commented.
