The Clubhouse audio app revealed that it had launched a payment feature for content creators on its platform without getting any money for it, according to CNBC.
Clubhouse said that, from Monday, all users will be able to send money through the app, and the feature to receive payments will initially be available for a small test group and then available to others.
Users can send money to Clubhouse content makers who have this feature enabled by logging into their profile and then selecting “Send Money”.
The audio social network said its partner, Stripe, for electronic payment services, will be charged a small fee for processing a credit or debit card that the app will ask to add on the first payment attempt.
Access to the app’s chat rooms, based in San Francisco, is only possible through invitations from current members.
Clubhouse was launched in early 2020 and its number of users rose globally after billionaire Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, and Vlad Tennev, CEO of Robinhood, had a surprise discussion on the app.
