YouTube allows bloggers to earn from the sales of the short video service, Shorts

Video hosting YouTube is modernizing the shorts section, which has taken over a lot from the popular short video platform TikTok. The company reportedly intends to diversify its revenue amid declining advertising revenue, allowing bloggers to earn from sales in shorts.

It is known that the advertising revenue of Alphabet-owned video hosting YouTube fell to $7.07 billion year-on-year in the third quarter against the background of a slowdown in the economy – in the third quarter of last year they amounted to $7.2 billion U.S. dollar.

The streaming service is testing new commission systems for bloggers who sell specific products via referral links embedded in videos. YouTube itself has not yet commented on the information.

The new data comes a few months after YouTube allowed content creators to monetize shorts videos – announcing that they can add ads to short videos, content creators get 45% of the revenue.

YouTube fiercely competes with the TikTok service, which once, quite unexpectedly for big eminent websites, quickly gained popularity – over time its audience has exceeded 1 billion monthly users.
