    TikTok is testing a new in-app tipping feature on its platform that would allow creators to accept money from fans outside of TikTok LIVE streams, where gifting is already supported. The company confirmed the feature is part of a limited test for the time being and is not yet broadly available.

    TikTok creator Jera Bean first spotted the feature and posted a video showcasing the new option, which was then highlighted by social media consultant Matt Navarra on Twitter.

    Her video shows the new feature in her TikTok account's settings and the screen where TikTok details the requirements.

    Creators who are part of the limited test can apply for the feature if they have at least 100,000 followers and are in good standing, the screen explains. Once creators submit an application to activate the feature, they’ll be notified when their account is approved. Creators that have been approved will be given a Tips button on their profiles, which their followers will be able to use to send them direct payments.
