TikTok Creators Will be Able to Sell Collections of Longer Videos
TikTok, a Chinese short-video sharing app, recently announced that it would permit certain creators to compile collections of longer videos and charge their audience a fee for access.
This will then create an additional source of income for its users.
With its new "Series" feature, it will be possible for qualified creators to put collections of up to 80 videos, each running for roughly 20 minutes, behind a paywall.
Currently, a video on TikTok can be up to 10 minutes long.
TikTok will provide a new channel of monetization for its users
With its short-form videos and intelligent recommendation system, TikTok is now going after YouTube.
In areas where YouTube still reigns supreme, TikTok claims that users are increasingly turning to the platform for content like essential spreadsheet shortcuts, workout routines, and cooking guides.
It's unclear if TikTok will charge the creators a fee.
In addition to managing a fund to provide incentives for creators to increase their audiences, the platform currently gives its creators the option of receiving tips and gifts.
