Clubhouse has been all the rage since its launch back in March. The audio-centric social platform has ushered in an era of audio-centric chat rooms that has been picked up by other social media platforms as well, including Twitter and Discord.
While other services are looking to make the feature available to everyone, Clubhouse still is an exclusive invite-only environment. This stems from the company’s ideology of keeping its creators first. In the spirit of the same, Clubhouse has now launched its first monetization feature, Clubhouse Payments! Let’s take a quick look at it.
What is Clubhouse Payments?
Clubhouse Payments is the first monetization feature on Clubhouse that allows you to send donations to your favorite creators on the platform. Clubhouse has partnered with Stripe to introduce this feature, and keeping in line with their ideology of ‘creator first’, Clubhouse has decided to send 100% of donations to the creators.
The processing fee will be sent to ‘Stripe’ and will be paid by you when you are donating to a creator. The entire amount of your donation will always make it to the creator’s inbox. This makes Clubhouse, one of the few creator platforms on the internet that does not take a share of the revenue earned by creators.
Clubhouse payments are still in beta and have been only rolled out to a select few creators on the platform. This feature is still in its ‘beta’ phase and is thus available to only a handful of creators. As time passes and bugs are fixed, Clubhouse is expected to release this feature to all creators on the platform.
