YouTube recently announced Super Stickers, which is another way to earn more money on YouTube and connect with viewers. Super Stickers is an extension of the Super Chat feature, and allows viewers to buy unique stickers to connect with a creator during their live streams and Premieres. Continue reading for the full details.
Super Stickers, just like Super Chat, are available for eligible channels when they are either live streaming or using Premieres for a new video release on YouTube. Super Chat and Super Stickers are both features that your viewers can use to attract more attention to the comments they leave in your chat window during live streams and Premieres. Right now, there are 8 distinct sticker packs that viewers can choose from to add an avatar to their comments. 5 of those sticker packs include stickers that are animated and have unique descriptions. Very similar to Super Chat, Super Stickers are designed to help viewers connect directly with creators by purchasing unique stickers from a wide range of prices.
Super Stickers have launched in 60 countries, and are available to creators that are eligible for the feature. Super Stickers have the same eligibility requirements as Super Chat, which are: the channel must be monetized, must have over 1,000 subscribers, channel owner must be over 18 and live in one of the available locations.
If your channel already has access to Super Chat, you will automatically be opted in for Super Stickers. Please note that Super Chat and Super Stickers are not available for music-related YouTube accounts at this time. If you don’t yet have access to Super Chat or Super Stickers and your channel is eligible, you can turn on Super Chat or Super Stickers by following these instructions:
- Sign in to studio.youtube.com.
- In the left menu, click Monetization.
- In the menu at the top of the main dash, click Live chat and then Get started and follow the on-screen instructions.
- Once you’ve completed all the instructions, you’ll find 2 options:
“Super Chat status is on” next to a blue toggle.
“Super Stickers status is on” next to a blue toggle.
Super Stickers include translated sticker packs for English, French, Japanese, Korean, and Portuguese, and more sticker packs are expected to be released by YouTube in the coming months. As always, please feel free to reach out to us with any questions about Super Stickers or Super Chat.
