TikTok will also allow direct payments to creators from their profile

TikTok allows users of its platform to make payments to creators who follow during live shows but is working on the extension of this function so that it is also possible give ‘tips’ from profiles.

The company is conducting a limited trial with a small group of creators, as confirmed to TechCrunch, after creator Jera Bean and tech consultant Matt Navarra reported on the new ‘tipping’ feature.

The trial is available to creators with at least 100,000 followers and an account in good standing. Participants see a new button on their profile for ‘tips’, which allows other users to make direct payments.

Creators are paid in full, which means that TikTok does not keep a percentage of this transaction, at least during the test, as explained in the aforementioned medium.

With this trial, Tiktok expands the payments feature that is currently available during live broadcasts. The ‘tips’ button on the profile would resemble the one since Twitter has incorporated globally on iOS.
