FAQ: Effect Creator Rewards

What is Effect Creator Rewards?

TikTok Effect Creator Rewards is a program that offers top creators an exciting opportunity to collect rewards for creating highly engaging TikTok effects on Effect House.

Why join Effect Creator Rewards?

Effect Creator Rewards allows creators to:

  • Get recognized and collect cash rewards for creating viral TikTok effects
  • Access potential paid opportunities in the future
  • Easily track their effects’ performance and monthly payouts all in one place

Who can join Effect Creator Rewards?

Effect Creator Rewards is open to Effect House creators who meet the following criteria:

  • At least 18 years of age
  • Based in the US, UK, France, Germany, Spain, or Italy
  • Have at least 500K TikTok videos published using your effects
  • Have completed tax and payment method setup

How are rewards calculated?

Effect Creator Rewards allows creators to collect rewards based on their effects’ engagement within the first 90 days of publishing. For every effect that reaches 500K authentic unique video publishes within its first 90 days, creators collect $700 USD. For every 100K thereafter, within the first 90 days of publishing, they collect $140 more.

What is a qualified effect?

An effect is considered a qualified effect once it reaches 500K video publishes within its first 90 days, or has collected at least $700 in rewards.

What is a unique video publish?

A video publish is a video published on TikTok using your effect. Only unique video publishes (one video per user per day) count towards your rewards. For example, if a user publishes 2 different videos using the same effect on the same day, this counts as 1 unique video publish.

Is there a maximum reward per creator?

The maximum payment a single effect can collect is $14K, which is equivalent to 10M unique video publishes. The maximum payment a single creator can collect per month is $50K.

How do creators get the reward?

Creators will be asked to set up their preferred payment method and tax information during the application process. Once the application is approved, all published effects and rewards collected will be shown on the dashboard. Rewards for the current month will be automatically transferred to the preferred payment method on the 15th of the following month.

The payment method can be changed at any time in Payment settings, which can be accessed through the dashboard.

Why isn’t Effect Creator Rewards available in my region?

We’re always looking to explore and evolve our features to bring more value to our global community. Effect Creator Rewards is still in its early stages, and we hope to make it available to more creators in the coming months.

If I move to an eligible region, will I be able to apply for Effect Creator Rewards?

No. We will base your eligibility based on your location when you created your TikTok account.

Can I still collect rewards from effects I’ve published in the past?

No. Only effects published after you’ve been admitted to the program are eligible to collect rewards.

Can I collect rewards from mobile effects or effects I created within the TikTok app?

No. Only Community Effects created using the Effect House desktop tool are eligible to collect rewards.

If I update a published effect after I enrolled in the program, can that effect collect rewards?

No. Only effects published after you’ve been admitted to the program are eligible to collect rewards.

What if my effect is removed or deactivated? How will that impact my rewards?

If your effect is removed or deactivated, it won’t be able to gain new video publishes, which means it will stop collecting rewards. However, all video publishes gained prior to your effect’s removal or deactivation will still be counted towards your next payout.

Will I ever lose my eligibility for participating in this program?

The Effect House team reserves the right to approve or disapprove applications or revoke admission to the program based on our policies and the Effect Creator Rewards Terms. At the same time, you may voluntarily opt out of the program at any time.

See Terms based on your country: US, France, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, and Spain.

Why is the reward amount on my dashboard different from what I received?

There may be times when your dashboard does not reflect your most updated payout amount. Please refer to the Monthly earnings statement, which can be accessed through the TikTok app, to get the most updated information.

To view your Monthly earnings statement, go to your Profile, tap Menu, then tap Settings and privacy, and then select Balance.
