How to Buy Tiktok Live Gifts and Shop using GCash

The popularity of Tiktok has been rising, which has prompted other platforms, including Youtube, to include similar features, such as Youtube Shorts.

Earning money with Tiktok can be done in four main ways:

  • Similar to other paying content platforms, Creator Fund monetizes traffic views
  • A marketplace for creators where brands collaborate, primarily through sponsorships, to monetize their content
  • Similar to Kumu, Twitch, Facebook Live, etc., live gifting lets you receive gifts from your viewers.
  • Earn money from the products you sell with Tiktok Shop

I will focus on these two topics for our post since we are discussing Live Gifts and shopping on Tiktok.

How to Buy Tiktok Live Gifts and Shop using GCash

As of my last knowledge, TikTok Live Gifts and shopping on TikTok were primarily done through in-app purchases, including the use of virtual coins or diamonds. Additionally, you could link a payment method like a credit card or PayPal to make these purchases. However, the specific methods and features may have changed since then, so it’s essential to check the latest information in the TikTok app or website for the most up-to-date instructions.

If you want to use GCash for TikTok Live Gifts and shopping, you would typically follow these steps:

  • Install TikTok App:Download and install the TikTok app on your smartphone or tablet from your device’s app store.

    4. Look for the payment or billing methods section.
    5. Add or link your GCash account as a payment method. This typically involves entering your GCash details.

How do Live Gifts work?

When your favorite Tiktok creators do a live stream, you can gift them a Live Gift. They can be converted into actual cash by creators who have a monetary value for these gifts. As a reward for providing content, this is one way to encourage creators.

What is the process for buying Live Gifts?

Cash is converted into coins for the purpose of buying gifts. Watching a Tiktok Live is the only way to buy these coins.

Purchases on Tiktok with Apple Pay or Google Play

Google Play or Apple Pay are the easiest ways to buy coins. Your Google Play/Apple Pay account will have to be configured with GCash first.

  1. Gift options are only visible when you are viewing a Tiktok Live. The Live icon can be found at the top left corner of the screen
  2. Choosing Recharge from the Gift/Reaction icon will bring you to the Recharge screen.
  3. You can recharge by clicking the amount you want and following the on-screen instructions.
  4. The streamer will appreciate your gift if you return to Tiktok Live.
