Ways to Enable Facebook Stars on Video Streams
Stars are available to a limited number of partners at this time.

Facebook Stars is a feature that allows you to monetize your live videos. Viewers can buy Stars and send them to you while you’re living or on past live videos that had Stars enabled. For every Star you receive, Facebook will pay you $0.01 USD.

To Enable Stars:

  1. Click on the notification you received or go to Creator Studio > Monetization to begin set up.
  2. Accept Terms and Conditions.
  3. Set up a Payment Account. If you’ve already set up a payout account, you can select your existing account, or set up an additional account. To set up a new payout account:
    1. Add your details when prompted (you will need your tax form). 
    2. Upload your tax form.
    3. Link your bank or PayPal account.
    4. Review your details.

      Your setup is now complete. The next steps are not required to complete set up and can be done later.

  4. Go to Creator Studio > Monetization > Stars to continue setting up Stars. 
  5. Follow the best practices outlined in Tips to get started with Stars.
  6. Go Live with Stars enabled.

Viewers will now be able to send you Stars in your live streams. To manage your Stars settings, go to Creator Studio > Monetization > Stars.
