Fans have been able to pay for exclusive content through channel memberships. Viewers on a livestreamed YouTube video can also pay for Super Chats to pin their comments to the top of the comment section.

YouTube earlier this week launched a new way for video creators to earn money from fans through a feature called Super Thanks, as the Google-owned streaming service looks to attract more content creators. The feature, a fourth way for YouTubers to earn money from their viewers, comes as competing platforms like short-form video app TikTok and Facebook‘s Instagram are investing heavily to court creators filming viral videos.

Fans can purchase Super Thanks at four price points, from $2 (roughly Rs. 150) to $50 (roughly Rs. 3,700), as a way to express gratitude and support their favorite YouTube channels, the company said in a statement. After a purchase on a video page, a highlighted comment will appear in the comment section, allowing the creator to respond to the fan’s gift with a comment. The feature is available to thousands of creators in 68 countries, and will expand to all eligible creators in YouTube’s partner programme.
