Manage YouTube Super Chat & Super Stickers for Live Chat

Super Chat and Super Stickers are ways to monetize your channel through the YouTube Partner Program. These features let your viewers purchase live chat messages that stand out and sometimes pin them to the top of a live chat feed. Learn more about eligibility, and how you can turn on this feature.
Note: This feature may not be available with supervised experiences on YouTube. Learn more here.

View Purchased Super Chats & Super Stickers

Super Chats & Super Stickers show as colored chat messages and animated images in your live chat feed. When a viewer buys a Super Chat or Super Sticker, their profile picture can stay on top of the live chat feed. The length of time depends on their purchase amount. The more a viewer spends, the longer Super Chats or Super Stickers stay at the top of the chat feed.

If a Super Chat or Super Sticker is moderated and removed for violating our policies, YouTube will donate our portion of revenue to charity.

Creators receive 70% of Supers revenue that is confirmed by Google. The 70% is calculated after local sales tax and App Store fees on iOS are deducted. Transaction costs, including credit card fees, are currently covered by YouTube.
