The possibility of monetizing our content on social networks is becoming more and more extensive, and on TikTok, we can take advantage of direct broadcasts to earn money (or to reward a tiktoker whose content catches our attention). To do this, it is important to be clear about what TikTok LIVE gifts are and how to send them in order to send them to your favorite content creator.
The LIVE Gifts feature allows your followers and viewers to extend their support beyond liking or sharing your content. When a user gives a gift to a tiktoker who is broadcasting live, these gifts are transformed into diamonds for their account. When you accumulate a significant amount, you will be able to withdraw those rewards and convert them to cash, but this option is not available to all creators.
The LIVE Gifts function is working, but even so, the tiktokers who want to enable it in their broadcasts will have to be over 18 years old, have at least 10,000 followers and the account must not be recently created, but must have at least one month of validity from discharge. Creators who have received warnings or penalties for violating the platform’s rules with their videos will also not be able to activate the gifts, something that company accounts will not be able to do either.

HOW TO COLLECT GIFTS FROM TIKTOK LIVE
If you have already managed to meet the requirements to be able to receive gifts in your lives, it is time to discover how to collect gifts from TikTok LIVE and redeem those diamonds in which the contributions of your followers have become.
