You Tube today is announcing a new feature to help creators monetize when they go live.It’s called Super Chat, and allows viewers to pay to pin a comment on live streams.
Sometimes, you may receive an offer for a free trial period.
I’d expect this to be the most common scenario that matches what you’re talking about.
All you have to do to access these sites is provide your credit card information so that they may charge you at some point for your 100% free services.
Any insights you might have about free services would be appreciated. My credit card information is valuable to me and I won’t give it out for something that purports to be free.
That prevents people from creating multiple accounts to do things like game a system, gain unfair access, or apply unfair weight in whatever that system is doing.
I’ve also seen scenarios where sites use credit cards to validate age.Super Chat will replace Fan Funding, the site’s previous tool for viewers to pay creators.You Tube’s product manager Barbara Macdonald said the goal for Super Chat is to help fans reach out to their favorite You Tubers in real time, and vice versa.I have seen where sites use credit cards as a form of identity validation and verification.Having a credit card associated with an account means that any new accounts with the same credit card number can be disallowed because it’s the same person.For now, Mac Donald tells us that any unwanted charges could be disputed via Google’s customer service, which appear to have a pretty strict policy on “donations.” Super Chat globally launches in beta today for select users and will roll out more broadly on January 31st.
