Anyone who produces videos, i.e. is a "creator," and participates in the YouTube Partner Program gets another way to fund themselves. Super Thanks is a new feature, which is basically a virtual donation box -- viewers can click on the corresponding icon and choose between four amounts between 2 and 50 dollars or euros with which they would like to support the creator of the video. Similar features already exist with Super Stickers and Super Chat for live video events, but Super-Thanks will also be available for normal video uploads.

From the donation amount, YouTube or Google retains its usual intermediary share (to our knowledge, about one third). By the way, as a "thank you" for a Super-Thanks donation, there is (only) a short, colorful animation to be seen as an overlay. In addition, the donated amount is automatically posted as a comment under the video.
Super Thanks is currently still in beta in 68 countries, including Germany, but will gradually be unlocked for all Creators. The option must then be activated for your own channel support.google.com/youtube/answer/10878910?hl=de#zippy=%2Csuper-thanks-f%C3%BCr-deinen-kanal-aktivieren-oder-deaktivieren%2Cumsatzbeteiligung.
