Everything You Need To Know About TikTok LIVE Subscriptions

Let's dive into the details of TikTok subs!


You need:


  • LIVE access

  • Complete level 2 of the Creator Growth Program. Stream for 120 minutes and stream on 3 different days.

What is LIVE Subscription?

A way for streamers to earn more money from TikTok LIVE and a way for viewers to financially support their favourite streamer.

In exchange, the viewer gets perks.

Default viewer perks:

  • Subscriber badge

  • Subscriber emotes

  • Subscriber-only gifts

  • Subscriber-only chat

The streamer can also add extra perks at their discretion such as a Discord role, a follow back or whatever they want!

How Much Does It Cost The Viewer?

In most countries, a subscription costs between $4.50 to $6 (US dollars).

A subscription is cheaper when purchased via the desktop website instead of the app.

How Much Does The Streamer Get?

Based on a $6 subscription:

  • Apple/Google take 30% - $1.80

  • TikTok takes 35% - $2.10

  • Streamer gets 35% - $2.10

The $2.10 is paid as 420 diamonds into their gift balance on the 15th of every month. You can then cash out the diamonds the same way you cash out gift diamonds.

Badges and Goals

The badge is up to four letters and shows that the viewer is a sub.

I suggest choosing something original that is part of your branding. Do not choose "Subs" if you can help it.

You can also choose to set a subscription goal to encourage more subs.


Emotes are very important as this is one of the primary reasons a viewer will sub. So they can spam your unique emotes into the chat.
