Super Thanks, our lord and savior Tube of You!
Independent content creators have plenty of avenues to monetize their work. YouTube, home to many of those creators’ videos, has been pushing their fans to contribute gifts during livestreams with Super Chats and Super Stickers. Now, it’s opening up a way for them to do the same for video-on-demand with Super Thanks.
Viewers will begin seeing a new Thanks button in the carousel below the title bar. Creators can set up to four price points between $2 and $50 (or their local equivalents) for their fans to give.
