Clubhouse will allow users to make direct payments to creators very soon.
Since its explosive growth, this will be the first time that the social audio app will bring a monetization tool.
Payment systems are created directly in the app, and Clubhouse has assured its users that they will not receive any cutbacks. By keeping things as simple and straightforward as possible, this means creators will be able to enjoy the full payment that a user sends them.
To make a payment, a user simply needs to touch their profile, touch “Send money” and then enter the desired amount to send. However, there is a small processing fee, which will go to Stripe, Clubhouse’s partner payment processor; users can pay with a credit or debit card.
Since this new feature is still in its testing stage, not everyone will be able to receive payments. Clubhouse plans to make it more available after “starting with a small test group.
