The Tips feature allows creators to receive tips from viewers who want to show their support. Creators receive the full tip, but a processing fee may apply. Tips offers yet another pathway for creators to connect with their audiences, while at the same time opening up yet another way to monetize.
Viewers, at the same time, get to feel empowered knowing they are directly supporting the creation of content they enjoy. By creating an atmosphere where gratitude and graciousness go hand in hand, Tips ends up having a positive impact on both the creator and viewer.
How to receive tips?
To opt in and start receiving tips from viewers, you’ll need to first opt in to “Creator Next,” the gateway to all of the monetization features on TikTok.
After you’ve enrolled in Creator Next, go to your Settings and Privacy page, select Creator Tools, then select Tips. Click Apply. Follow the on-screen instructions. If you haven’t set up an account on Stripe, the payment provider used to receive your tips, you’ll be taken to their website. The Stripe approval process can take up to 48 hours.
