YouTube has introduced a new feature that will allow users to pay people directly for their work in response to the growing demand for recognition and compensation among internet content creators. This new feature helps creators get that extra revenue and allows their viewers to support them easily.
How It Works
“Super Thanks,” a virtual tip jar that allows viewers to pay money to their favorite channels with a simple click, is on the way, according to the entertainment platform.
By clicking the “Super Thanks” icon, users will be given the option to comment their reason for donating below the video, where creators can respond.
The widget, which will show beneath creators’ videos, will go live this week with hundreds of channels and be fully operational by the end of the year. The viewers will donate amounts ranging from $2 to $50 using the “Super Thanks” feature.
The “Super Thanks” function will be available to creators who have been accepted into the YouTube Partner Program, which provides artists with creative resources as well as ad revenue for their videos. YouTube will receive about a third of the proceeds from the new tool.
YouTube Continues to Grow
This feature allows users to purchase a lingering reaction or comment on a creator’s live stream for other viewers to see. This is YouTube’s third “super” option. YouTube is making these innovations to benefit content creators. This means they value the expansion and continuation of YouTube content. This is proof that YouTube will remain a viable platform worldwide to watch their favorite content.
