Christmas has just come early for broadcasters on Periscope. The company has decided to give them all its earnings from the Super Broadcasters Program – with the exception of an admin fee, of course.
Periscope launched Super Hearts earlier this year as a way for broadcasters to monetise their streams, essentially by having viewers send them virtual gifts. And now, it’s time for Periscope to give back. The company announced that it will be giving all its “earnings from the Super Broadcasters Program — with the exception of a $1 administration fee per broadcaster payout — to those in the program.” If you’re about to complain about that admin fee, remember that it’s used to keep the Super Hearts feature going.
Apart from the payout, in November and December, Periscope will be giving broadcasters a “holiday bonus.” Broadcasters who earn one million or more stars per month, will be “eligible to receive a $100 bonus.” Those who earn three million or more will be eligible for a $250 bonus on top of that (that’s a $350 total). As a reminder, bonuses will only be based on monthly earnings for the months of November and December 2017 – not previous balances. Finally, if any broadcaster reaches the minimum star balance on each month, they can get the bonus on both months.
