Manage YouTube Super Chat and Super Stickers for live chat

Super Chat and Super Stickers are ways to monetise your channel through the YouTube Partner Programme. 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.

See purchased Super Chats and Super Stickers

Super Chats and Super Stickers show as coloured chat messages in your live chat feed. When a viewer makes a purchase, their profile picture can stay on top of the live chat feed. How long it stays for depends on their purchase amount. The more a viewer spends, the longer Super Chats or Super Stickers can stay at the top of the chat feed. 
You can see all Super Chat and Super Sticker purchases for the past 30 days at https://studio.youtube.com/channel/UC/monetization/supers

Revenue share

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. 

Saying 'thanks' and other small interactions can help you build your audience quickly with Super Chat.
