Picture through YouTube
So far, YouTube content producers have turned to third-party extensions or websites such as Co-fi so that fans can thank them for their work through donations. From this week, viewers can give their favorite developers a tip directly from YouTube through the site’s all-new “Super Thanks” feature.
Although new the feature is still in beta testing, will be rolled out to thousands of content providers in 68 countries, and by the end of the year, YouTube plans to make it available to all content providers in the YouTube Partner Program.
By Engadget, In the U.S., viewers have the option to tilt content providers to $ 2, $ 5, $ 10, or $ 50 at a time. Once the payment is made, the animated GIF balloons will float across the viewer’s screen, and YouTube will highlight their comments and the amount donated.
Like the others tools on the site, such as Super Chat and Super Stickers, YouTube will deduct 30% of all donations.
