You'll receive the gifts sent by your followers in the form of diamonds, which can be converted into cash. Estimating your potential earnings from TikTok gifts is challenging due to the various conversions required in the process.

How do TikTok Coins Work?

Firstly, creators don't receive gifts as TikTok coins; they are converted into diamonds. Secondly, TikTok doesn't disclose the conversion rate of coins to diamonds and diamonds to cash. They maintain that the value of their in-app currencies may fluctuate, and it's within their discretion to determine conversion rates. Consequently, there's no definitive method to determine the earnings from virtual gifts on TikTok. However, influencers often use estimated values to gauge the potential worth of diamonds. Typically, sending a gift on TikTok Live worth two coins yields one diamond for the creator, meaning a diamond's value is half of a TikTok coin's value. Based on the available coin bundles, a conservative estimate places the value of one coin at approximately one cent. Thus, creators earn around half a cent for every diamond received from gifts.
