Clubhouse isn’t taking a cut.
Fast-rising audio chat app Clubhouse will now allow users to send money to their favorite creators, the company announced in a blog post today (April 6), promising that the new feature is “the first of many” ways creators will be able to earn money on the platform.
All users on the invite-only app — which has reached approximately 15.6 million installs globally, according to Sensor Tower — will be able to send payments starting today. However, Clubhouse is rolling out the option to collect funds in waves, with the hope to take feedback from a small test group and fine-tune the feature along the way.
To send payments, users can tap the profile of a creator who has the feature enabled, then tap “Send Money” and enter an amount. The first time a user sends money, the user will be asked to register a credit or debit card. Notably, 100% of the payment will go to the creator, although the user sending the money will also be charged a small credit card processing fee that goes directly to Clubhouse’s payment processing partner, Stripe.
