Amazon’s live radio app “Amp” is creating a fund for creators. Here’s what we know about the program and who is eligible.

Amazon says the new program is designed to give Amp creators a way to get paid for the content they create. Eligible creators can earn money; no request necessary. Those who have already qualified should receive pending emails with details on how to redeem these rewards. So who is eligible to win with the Amp Creator Fund? Creators must meet the following requirements:

  • Host at least one live show each month.
  • Adhere to all of Amp’s Terms of Service, Community Guidelines, and Music Guidelines.
  • Must be at least 18 years old to agree to Terms of Service; 13-18 must have parental consent.
  • Must be located in the United States.
  • Must have a US bank account.
  • Must have an email address associated with an Amazon account.
  • Cannot be an Amp employee or contract with Amp.

Amazon says it rewards eligible creators based on the performance of their shows. What goes into the calculation changes every month, but the shoes are “rated based on listener engagement and show performance metrics such as popularity with new and returning listeners.” As the creator fund program evolves, Amazon says these metrics may change over time.

One thing to note is that creators should be aware of their payment methods and emails. If a creator receives a reward from Amp and does not have accurate payment and tax information provided by the 15th of the month in which they qualified, the creator forfeits that reward.

“If you receive an email notifying you of your reward on July 8, you have until August 15 to upload your payment information. You are responsible for ensuring that your payment and tax information is up to date at all times. reads the Amp FAQ on the program.

Amp also offers creators a few social media kits to help promote their live radio shows. It will be interesting to see if this creation fund can help Amp progress against alternatives like Spotify Live, Clubhouse and even Twitter Spaces.
