The social network Clubhouse launched the function of direct money transfers between users of the platform, through which users were able to financially support the authors of content. The corresponding message was published on the official blog of the social network.
“Today we are pleased to announce the launch of payments, our first monetization feature for content creators on Clubhouse. All users will have the ability to send payments, and we’ll be rolling out the feature in waves, starting with a small test group today. We hope to gather feedback, refine the feature and introduce it to all platform users soon,” the statement said.
To send money, simply open a content creator’s profile and select the “Send Money” option. In this case, the recipient must have the ability to accept payments activated in the settings. When making the first transfer the service will also offer to bind the credit or debit card.
The developers noted that the direct money transfer function is the first, but not the only tool to monetize the content created in Clubhouse.
