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.
