YouTube is giving creators new ways to monetize their streams

YouTube is giving creators new ways to monetize their streams. YouTube announced SuperStickers, tiered Channel membership levels, an expanded Merch shelf, and Learning Playlists. SuperStickers are part of YouTube’s Superchat feature which lets viewers promote their comments during a livestream by paying a small fee. SuperStickers lets viewers pay a fee to access small, animated stickers that stand out in the chat stream. The standard $4.99 per month Channel membership user subscription gives viewers access to exclusive content from streamers. Tiered memberships lets creators offer different levels of premier access at different price levels. The Merch shelf allows creators to sell merchandise, and now they have more merchandise sourcing partners to chose from on their channel. Learning Plalylists let educators link a series of individual, short lessons together to sequentially play for viewers. Tech Crunch
