Stripe helps you quickly onboard and pay out creators globally. Companies like Twitter, Substack, and Clubhouse partner with Stripe to build custom solutions for creators to earn money on their platforms.

Build for the creator economy

Give creators new ways to earn money on your platform

Stripe’s products make it easy for creators to earn more revenue on your platform with minimal engineering, legal, and compliance investment. Help creators build stronger relationships with their fans by allowing them to accept payments from around the world in exchange for sharing their content and craft. You can also help creators manage their cash flow by issuing credit cards and digital wallets.

Ticket sales

From online conversations to concerts, creators are always looking for opportunities to interact with their fans. With ticket sales, fans can connect with creators and pay them for their time and energy.

Content and membership subscriptions

Allow creators to build recurring revenue streams with their fans through memberships and subscriptions. Creators can sell written content, podcasts, online courses, and more.

Tips from fans

Drive increased creator-to-fan engagement by unlocking tipping for content on your platform. Show your support for creators by tipping them for the content they create.

Financial services

Twitter partners with Stripe to help creators earn additional income

Problem

Twitter wanted to offer new ways for creators to earn money on their platform, but needed a fast and compliant way to process and split payments, and pay out globally.

Solution

With Stripe Connect, Twitter was able to shift payments compliance requirements to Stripe while focusing on building new creator monetization products on its platform. Stripe’s flexible APIs helped Twitter launch Ticketed Spaces and Super Follows, where creators can earn money by creating an extra level of conversation for their closest followers, and use Stripe to access their funds and manage their earnings—all in one place.
