Fortnite launches 'support-a-creator' initiative that lets players support their favourite influencers

Fortnite launches 'support-a-creator' initiative that lets players support their favourite influencers

Fortnite has started an event that lets players directly support YouTubers and streamers. 

The 'support-a-creator' event, running from this week until December 31st, will let creators earn real cash via their fans spending money on Fortnite's in-game currency, V-Bucks. 

To participate, players need to go the item shop in battle royale mode or the loot tab in the 'save the world' area of the menu. In there, they'll find a support a creator box. Users can then enter the Epic Tag pertaining to their chosen creator.

How does it work?

Every time a player buys V-Bucks, their spend will be split with whichever creator they've entered in to the support-a-creator box. It also applies to free V-Bucks that the player accrues from gameplay or events. Creators will receive $5 for every 10,000 V-Bucks bought or earned.

The support lasts for 14 days at a time, and  it'll continue to roll on every two weeks unless the user changes it. The selected creator can be edited at any time. 

To qualify for the event, creators must meet the following criteria:

  • Has regularly created and released Fortnite content over the last 30 days
  • Has 1,000+ followers on at least one major social platform
  • Completes the Affiliate Agreement and abides by our Creator Code of Conduct
  • Capable of receiving payment in a form that Epic supports

The  support-a-creator program also excludes creators in China, Iran and North Korea.

Epic also warned creators that an event of this scale could lead to delays in payments or limited enrollment to the program. It also said to 'expect modest results' from the event. Unless you're Ninja, presumably.
