Discord is rolling out a brand new way for users to make money off the platform with the introduction of Server Subscriptions. Using this new monetization option, individuals running Discord servers have the opportunity to bring in a solid stream of income thanks to the platform offering a 90/10 revenue split for each Server Subscription sold.
Discord notes that server owners will get to keep 90 percent of each monthly Server Subscription sold “minus some small processing fees for legal’s sake.” In terms of what individuals purchasing a Server Subscription can receive on their end, this is largely left up to the server owner in question. Examples of things that may be bundled in with a Server Subscription on Discord include things like access to exclusive Text or Voice channels, premium emojis, exclusive or early access to special content, merch, and more.
Starting today, all eligible U.S. creators can make money directly from their Discord servers.— Discord (@discord) December 1, 2022

Discord points out that server owners can even offer multiple tiers of subscriptions at different price points depending on what’s being offered. With that being said, Server Subscriptions are only available in the U.S. at the moment. Additionally, Discord servers must meet the following criteria in order to be eligible to offer Server Subscriptions:
- The server owner must be based in the United States.
- Your server has a good standing with Discord, meaning no recent Terms of Service or Community Guideline violations.
- You must agree to our updated Monetization Terms and Server Subscriptions Policy.
