On August 27, 2021, Space's official Twitter account said, 'We want to help users make money in Space. Starting today, some hosts will have ticket-based space available. For now, it's only available on iOS, but it's expected to be available to everyone in the near future. It will take some time, but I want you to use it too. '

In the ticket-based space, the host can set the price of the chat room of the space from 1 to 999 dollars (110 yen to 110,000 yen), and it is also possible to limit the number of people. According to Twitter, the fee for ticket-based space is 3%, and the host can earn 97% of the ticket amount. However, it is explained that the commission will increase to 20% when the sales of the application exceed 50,000 dollars (about 5.5 million yen), and it is possible that the commission will increase in the future.
To use the ticket-based space, it is necessary that 'the host user has at least 1000 followers' and 'hosts at least 3 spaces in the last 30 days'. In addition, people under the age of 17 cannot charge for the space.
