Friday, June 22, 2018, 1:18 PM
YouTube, often criticised for not compensating creators well enough, will allow them to set up paid channel memberships. Viewers will pay $4.99 a month for channel memberships giving them access to exclusive content including livestreams, extra videos or shout-outs on channels with more than 100,000 subscribers. Creators will also be able to sell merchandise like shirts or phone cases directly on their channels.
