The TikTok Creator Fund is part of TikTok Pro, which lets users get paid for their content.
So, here’s how it works. And how you can start getting paid by TikTok.
First, you have to get a TikTok Pro account. Click here for a full post on everything you need to know to do that.
Once you get the Pro account as a Creator, you then have to apply to the program through the app.
TikTok has outlined what you need in order to join. A user has to meet this criteria, according to TikTok:
- A user must be based in the U.S., UK, France, Germany, Spain or Italy
- A user must be at least 18 years old
- A user must have 10,000 followers
- A user must have 10,000 video views in the last 30 days
- A user must have an account that fits with the TikTok guidelines
Now let’s get to the money. Just how does it all work?
“Creators receive funds based on a variety of factors from their videos, and creators will know that performance on TikTok is dynamic – it changes naturally – so your funds will ebb and flow in the same way,” according to TikTok.
TikTok doesn’t outright say how much someone will be paid, but the company noted payment depends on a few things, including “the number of views and the authenticity of those views, the level of engagement on the content … [and that] the Creator Fund total varies daily and is dependent on the amount of videos published by our community that day.”
