Clubhouse, an invitation-only audio-chat service, announced a new feature in the application. This feature will allow content creators to pay to each other within the Clubhouse application. The company took this decision to stand out from the rising competition with other social media services like Linked In, Twitter, and Spotify that are working on social audio media platforms.
What is the new ‘Clubhouse Payments’ feature in the Clubhouse application?
Clubhouse is a social networking application that works on the concept of audio chats. It brings opportunities for content creators to come live and conduct interviews and discussion on various topics. It helps them find people with co-coinciding interests. According to the company, the new ‘Clubhouse Payments’ feature will enable content creators to monetise their content. Earlier, the service only provided an environment to promote their content but not monetise them.
How can the content creators benefit from the new ‘Clubhouse Payments’ feature?
The new ‘Clubhouse Payments’ feature will allow all the users to send money to the desired content creator. However, only certain users will be eligible to receive the funds. The company is optimistic with regards to the new feature. The ‘Clubhouse payments’ will allow users to express their appreciation and applause by making a desires payment to their favourite content creator.
The ‘Clubhouse payments’ will also help expand the community of the content creators. Other content services including Youtube and Twitch become highly popular as soon as they allowed their users to monetise their content. The payment feature of the Clubhouse will serve as an incentive to come up with innovative content. Moreover, it will attract emerging content creators to the platform.
How can you pay a content creator in Clubhouse?
To send a payment to other users on Clubhouse, follow these steps.
- Launch the Clubhouse application
- Go to the profile of the desired content creator.

Clubhouse transfers the complete payment offered by you without any commission. However, you’ll have to pay a small fee for processing the transaction.
How will the new feature help Clubhouse against its competitors?
The chain reaction of featuring an audio-only setup has already started. This is evident because major social media and streaming platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Spotify are working on the live audio feature that was popularised by Clubhouse.
The new Payments feature will give Clubhouse an edge over other players including Facebook, Twitter, and Spotify that have just started working on the audio-only setups. This will also help the company to keep its unique identity secure while other platforms are trying to replicate it. Since Clubhouse is coming up with innovative features, it will be hard for other social media platforms to surpass its popularity and relevance.
