Manage Super Chat

We're currently piloting Super Stickers with a small number of channels. If you're in this pilot, Super Stickers will automatically be turned on for you. You can also check if you're in this pilot by going to your Live chat page in YouTube studio beta. If you have this feature, you'll see the option to turn it off and on. Super Stickers works in the same way as Super Chat, which means you can moderate them.

Super Stickers is currently available to a limited number of channels, with further expansion planned throughout 2019 and beyond.

Super Chat is one way to monetize your channel through the YouTube Partner Program. This feature lets your viewers purchase chat messages, and in some cases, pin them to the top of a chat feed. Learn more about eligibility, and how you can turn on this feature

See purchased Super Chats

Super Chats show as colored chat messages in your chat feed. When a viewer makes a purchase, their icon stays on top of the chat feed for a period of time, depending on their purchase amount. The more a viewer spends, the longer Super Chats can stay at the top of the chat feed. You can see Super Chat purchase details by country.
You can see all Super Chat purchases for the past 30 days at www.youtube.com/super_chat. Please note: Actual revenue may vary due to Apple service fee, sales tax, or other charges.
