Super Thanks (currently in beta)

Last update: 26.07.2021

Super Thanks lets creators earn a different source of revenue and connect with viewers who want to show extra gratitude for their content. 

Viewers can buy a fun, “clapping” animation called Super Thanks on a channel’s video page (not available for streams and premiere). The one-time animation will be shown only to the purchaser over the top of the channel's video. As an added bonus, purchasers will also get a distinct, colorful comment in the video’s comments section.

Once you enable the function, it will be available to viewers in 68 countries. Also, viewers must meet certain requirements in order to buy a super thanks. You can find out how much money you've received with this function in YouTube Analytics. The data will appear in the Revenue tab alongside other revenue sources. You can watch all the comments with a super thanks as well: YouTube Studio has a special filter in the "Comments" section.

How to activate the function

The instruction's here. Also, learn more about eligibility. Please note that the function will be available to the YPP members who follow the platform's rules only.
