TikTok has recently introduced a new feature to enhance monetization opportunities for creators. The feature, Subscriber-Only Videos, adds to the platform’s LIVE Subscription service.
TikTok LIVE is a unique platform where creators can engage with their audience in real time, providing unedited and authentic content.
The platform has been exploring new ways to help creators cultivate deeper connections with their global community and reward their creativity.
In 2022, TikTok launched LIVE Subscription, a monthly subscription service on TikTok LIVE that allows fans to show their appreciation for their favorite LIVE creators.
“As part of our ongoing efforts to build diversified creator monetization opportunities to support our creators, today we’re introducing the addition of a new LIVE Subscription perk, Subscriber-Only Videos. Subscriber-Only Videos are exclusive videos that only subscribers can view. The new perk encourages interactions beyond the LIVE room, enabling subscribers to like, comment, and reply to one another, helping creators foster even more meaningful connections with their community,” mentions Tiktok.
This service has allowed creators to increase their earnings while growing their community.
Subscribers gain access to exclusive benefits defined by the creator, including Subscriber Badges, Subscriber-Only LIVEs, Custom Emotes, and Subscriber-Only Chats.

To access the LIVE Subscription feature, creators must be 18 years of age and have a minimum of 1,000 followers. Users must be over 18 to purchase a subscription and to send or receive Coins and Gifts. All users must follow our Community Guidelines and not solicit gifts or offer incentives for gifting.
