What is Twitch?

Before telling, you how to set up donations in Twitch, you have to understand what exactly this is. To begin with, the name corresponds to one of the most famous broadcast platforms in the world and although not many understand it that way, it is also a form of income or work for many people who broadcast on it.

One way to earn money on the platform is through premium subscribers, and another is through donations. For this last form, it is necessary to know how to configure donations, both directly and through third-party platforms.

How to set up donations in Twitch?

On how to obtain donations on this transmission platform, there are many ways to do it, some are easier than others, but they all have the same purpose, so we recommend choosing the one that is most comfortable for you.

How to set bit donations in Twitch?

For starters, bits are the primary medium for viewers to donate to their favorite streamers. Naturally, if you want your viewers to donate bits to you, you will have to earn them by joking around, playing in the best possible way, among other ways.

Keep in mind that in order to receive bits, you must be an affiliate of the platform, which is not so easy. To qualify among the affiliates of the platform you will have to:

  • Have at least 500 minutes, which is equal to 8.3 hours of transmission in the last 30 days.
  • Have seven unique streams over 30 days, averaging at least three simultaneous viewers during that time.
  • Have a total of 50 followers or more.

We told you, it is not that easy, but it is definitely not impossible either, you just have to dedicate enough to the platform and when you qualify, you will receive an email and an invitation to your notifications tab on Twitch TV.

Each bit equals $0.01.

How to set up third-party donations in Twitch?

If becoming an affiliate is difficult for you, you can opt for a Streamlabs-type service to set up donations through platforms such as PayPal, Skrill, Unitpay, Patreon, Extra Life, Tiltify and others. For this you will have to link your account, so that donations have somewhere to go.

With Streamlabs, you can accept credit card donations, but to get verified, you'll need to meet the following requirements:

Proven history of fair use.

A constant pattern of simultaneous viewers and followers.

This will allow your viewers to donate directly without having to buy the bits from the platform.

How to set up donations with PayPal in Twitch?

Another way to get donations is simply by placing a link to donate. But note that you cannot add a link directly to your platform bio, but you can add a panel to your Twitch channel from the channel settings for the same purpose.

The panel can contain both an image and a text.

One trick is that the more personalized your donations page is, the more likely you are to receive them.

We recommend setting the profile picture with a photo of yourself or a logo from your Twitch stream, to make the panel more eye-catching.

Now that you know how to configure Twitch, you can use the method that is most comfortable and accessible for you, although using all of them will allow you to attract more donations, but this depends on your possibilities.
