Clubhouse allows users to monetize their work on the platform by allowing them to share external links. The audio social networking app Clubhouse will soon allow its users to share outside links and monetize their work on the platform.
Clubhouse CEO Paul Davison and global head of marketing Maya Watson announced a new pinned links feature today at The Verge’s On The Verge event, which allows moderators to pin outside links to the top of a room. Listeners can be directed to whatever the moderators want, such as a Patreon page, a news article, or a podcast, using these links.
For security and moderation reasons, certain links will not be permitted. Davison did not specify the types of links that would be prohibited, but he implied that links to OnlyFans would be prohibited because links to porn are prohibited. Anyone can add, change, or remove a link as long as they’re a room moderator and have a certain number of followers.
These links would direct listeners to whatever moderators want, including a news article, or a podcast.

As per The Verge, Clubhouse will not charge or take a cut of revenue from any transactions that occur through the link, although Paul Davison said the team “would likely share news in the upcoming months about ways in which the app itself will monetize, like through ticketed rooms and subscriptions.”
The feature will roll out on October 27 for both iOS and Android.
