Want More Real Tiktok Followers?

Receiving tons of likes and positive feedback on a post is the best validation any content creator could ask for. Receiving TikTok gifts is the cherry on top of your success. If you’ve ever wondered how much your TikTok Gifts are worth in terms of cash, you can use a TikTok Gift Points to money calculator.

How Do TikTok Gifts Work?

TikTok Gifts are virtual items users can purchase with TikTok Coins (TikTok’s virtual currency) and send to their favorite creators. These virtual gifts are an excellent way to support creators who deliver value through their content.

Users can show their appreciation by sending Gifts to a For You feed video or a LIVE. A user must first purchase Coins through the TikTok Recharge feature. They can then use the Coins to buy Gifts. There are different types of Gifts, and the number of Coins needed to purchase them varies per gift.

Only feed and LIVE videos from personal accounts are eligible to receive Gifts. According to TikTok’s Virtual Items Policies, “Business Accounts, Government, Politician, and Political Party Accounts, and any other public interest account are ineligible to send Gifts or receive Gifts on their content.”

Users can send Gifts to a For You feed video via the Comments feature. If a LIVE stream is eligible to receive Gifts, the Gift button will appear at the bottom.

TikTok Gifts: How Much Is Your Content Worth?

While a Gift has an equivalent cash value in terms of the number of Coins it costs, TikTok Gifts are not convertible into real money. Creators also can’t sell their Gifts for cash or exchange them for the app currency.

However, creators can earn Diamonds from their Gifts, and Diamonds are convertible to cash. TikTok rewards Diamonds to creators whose videos are performing extremely well. One way that TikTok measures video performance is by the number of Gifts it receives. So, collecting Gifts is an indirect way to monetize content.

How much are Diamonds worth? According to TikTok Virtual Items Policies, “Diamonds are based on the Gifts a Content Provider receives, at a rate of conversion to be determined by us from time to time in its absolute and sole discretion.”

The Diamonds-to-cash exchange rate, therefore, is not fixed. It’s also not directly equivalent to the purchase amount of the Gifts.

If you’re curious about how many Coins different Gifts cost, below are estimated Coin equivalents:

  • Panda: Five Coins
  • Italian Hands: Five Coins
  • Love Bang: Twenty-five Coins
  • Sun Cream: Fifty Coins
  • Rainbow Puke: One Hundred Coins
  • Concert: Five Hundred Coins
  • I’m Very Rich: One Thousand Coins
  • Drama Queen: Five Thousand Coins

TikTok Gifts Points to Money Calculator: Estimating Your Potential Earnings

According to reports from some creators, the Diamond-to-Gift conversion rate is 50% of the Gift’s value in Coins. If a creator receives a Drama Queen Gift, they can collect 2500 worth of Diamonds. The number of Diamonds a creator collects, however, does not directly equal the cash value of the Coins. TikTok determines the USD value of a diamond. The platform also retains a fee when a creator converts their Diamonds into cash. 

According to TikTok, “The applicable monetary compensation will be calculated by us based on various factors, including the number of Diamonds a user has accrued.”

Again, reports reveal that one Diamond is equivalent to five cents. So, to calculate how much money you can earn from your Drama Queen gift, here’s a sample calculation:

Drama Queen Gift = 5,000 Coins

Diamonds = # of Coins / 2 = 2,500 Diamonds

Cash Value = 2,500 Diamonds x 0.05 cents = $125

Remember that TikTok still deducts a fee from your withdrawal, so the cash you’ll get will be lower.

You can also get a quick estimate of how many Diamonds you can earn from your Gifts by using an online TikTok Gift calculator. You simply enter your total Gift points, and the online tool calculates your potential earnings.
