This is really exciting to share because, with Facebook Paid Events, content creators can make money with live streams. Paid Online Events allow you to monetize your live stream with a one-time access fee collected when your guests register to attend. You can host live classes, webinars, interviews, discussions, live performances, quizzes, and more in your paid live events. This tutorial will cover all the most important things you need to know before setting up your first paid Facebook event.
