Creator Next

What if we told you that you can monetize as you develop your community? When you choose to opt in to TikTok Creator Next, you’ve found just that place.

What is TikTok Creator Next?

TikTok Creator Next aims to help creators monetize as they grow and develop their communities on the platform. When you join TikTok Creator Next, you receive access to tools and features that allow you to turn their creativity and passions into something greater, whether that’s a side hustle or a business.

Through TikTok Creator Next, you’ll have numerous ways to maximize monetization opportunities, including collaborating with brands and even just making more incredible TikTok videos.

TikTok Creator Next features

TikTok Creator Fund

TikTok Creator Fund rewards you for doing what you do best — making incredible TikTok videos. It’s TikTok’s way of celebrating and supporting creators for their dedication, ingenuity, and spirit.

TikTok Creator Marketplace

TikTok Creator Marketplace (TTCM) is the official platform for brand and creator collaborations on TikTok. Brands and agencies can browse and search TTCM’s marketplace of creators who’ve joined TTCM across 24 countries.

LIVE Gifts

TikTok awards Diamonds to creators based on the popularity of their LIVE videos. A key metric that TikTok uses to assess the popularity of a LIVE video is the number of LIVE Gifts sent to a creator’s content. Creators may then redeem these Diamonds for money and transfer the money to their connected account.

Video Gifts

Similar to the LIVE Gifts feature, the Video Gifts feature offers an additional way for creators to collect Diamonds from TikTok for the popularity of their content. While LIVE Gifts are exclusive to LIVE content, Video Gifts are eligible for short videos.


Tips allow creators to receive tips from viewers who want to show their support. Creators receive the full tip, but service fees may apply.

Who’s eligible?

To be eligible to participate in TikTok Creator Next, creators must be 18 years of age or older, meet minimum follower requirements (which can differ depending on region), have at least 1,000 video views in the last 30 days, have at least three posts in the last 30 days, have an account that is in good standing with Community Guidelines and be based in the US, UK, Germany, France, Italy or Spain (Canada and Australia will also have access in the coming months).* Business Accounts are ineligible to participate.

The TikTok community will welcome you with open arms if you genuinely lean into what makes it special and embrace it. Spending time each day on the For You feed will show you which trends and sounds are gaining traction and why.
