Meta recently revealed information on how it will be enabling its creators to monetize and earn money from using its metaverse.
Meta has taken to the news section of its website and created a video that explains to creators that they will be able to create and sell virtual items, services, and experiences within Horizon Worlds. Meta outlines that these tools to enable monetization for creators are steps toward "our long-term vision for the metaverse". Throughout Meta's announcement, the company failed to mention how much of a cut it would be taking on each transaction.
For context, the world's largest NFT marketplace, OpenSea, takes a 2.5% cut on every transaction, and Apple's App Store takes anywhere between 15% and 30%. According to a spokesperson for Meta, who told CNBC, Meta is planning on taking an overall cut of up to 47.5% on each transaction, and that includes a ""hardware platform fee" of 30% for sales made through the Meta Quest Store". The full paragraph from CNBC can be found below.
