Clubhouses now have a “transfer” feature that allows creators to sponsor. Clubhouses said on its official website that it will introduce a feature that allows users to sponsor creators who work in the app through payment. This function is completed by a partnership with digital payment platform Stripe.
The remittance method is simple. You can send a certain amount of money by opening the profile of the creator you want to sponsor, pressing the “Send Money” button at the bottom of the screen, and registering a payment card. All sponsorship amounts will be delivered to the creators and there will be no fees collected by the clubhouse. However, a small card fee will be charged for payment. The function is currently being piloted in a small, exclusive version, and will be converted to be available to all users after reviewing the response later.

From the earliest days of Clubhouse, a guiding principle has been to build a platform that puts the creator first. Our aim is to help creators build community, audience, and impact. And as Clubhouse continues to scale, it’s important to us to align our business model with that of the creators—helping them make money and thrive on the platform.
Today, we’re thrilled to begin rolling out Payments—our first monetization feature for creators on Clubhouse. All users will be able to send payments today, and we’ll be rolling out the ability to receive payments in waves, starting with a small test group today. Our hope is to collect feedback, fine-tune the feature, and roll it out to everyone soon.
Here’s how it works:
- To send a payment in Clubhouse, just tap on the profile of a creator (who has the feature enabled) and tap “Send Money”.
- Enter the amount you would like to send them. The first time you do this, you’ll be asked to register a credit or debit card.
- 100% of the payment will go to the creator. The person sending the money will also be charged a small card processing fee, which will go directly to our payment processing partner, Stripe. Clubhouse will take nothing.
This will be the first of many features that allow creators to get paid directly on Clubhouse. We are excited to see how people use it, and to continue working hard to help the amazing members of the Clubhouse community grow and thrive. 🎉
