Streaming and getting paid

nightswifty Feb 03, 2013 07:32AM PST

Hey, i`m starting to stream soon because of getting to a new team and sponsors and i`d like to know some things like:

- How much do you get paid and how do i update my billing information
- Subscriptions are 5$ from what i`ve heard, if someone subscribes to me how much do i get?
- When do i get paid where is that money going? Can i forward or donate it for charity?
- More information about the partner program, i`ll have like 500+ viewers each night streaming each day at most.

Thanks and have a good day

I can't really tell you how much I get paid, and updating your billing information is as easy as going into your "Partner" tab in your "Settings" and just update your Paypal Information or Address. (If you're partner, otherwise the tab won't show for you).

As for Subscriptions, I believe subscriptions are whatever you set it to, or what twitch.tv sets it to, and you get half, and twitch gets half. (Based on what I heard). As for obtaining the Subscription Button, you have to meet a requirement AS a Partner before they ever consider you. The Subscription Feature is a Invite Only feature.

You get paid at the end of each month, depending on if you reach the required amount. ($100), if you do not reach $100 in Ad Revenue, then you do not get paid, it is then carried over into the next month until you DO make $100 and then it is sent to you at the end of that month. Depending on how many Concurrent Viewers you get each stream, how long you stream, and how long those viewers do watch depends on your revenue.

Once the money gets sent to your paypal, it is then your choice to do with it as you please. (Send it to Charity, transfer it to your bank, send it to someone else, buy things. Etc).

That is about all the information I have to offer. I hope it helps.

Hi I'm wondering if I need permission to promote my sons fundraising project on Twitch.TV? I don't really know much on how this kind of stuff works I am very new.. The fundraising project was not started by me but by the school and like I said I just want to get the word out and help.
Here is a link to the fundraiser https://thedriven.net/no-shortcuts-5k.donate_team/teamId/62/eid/757034568

World65FTW - You can set up your own charity promotion on your channel page at any time. However, you may be questioned as to where the money went, thus be prepared to provide proof of donation.

Hi,

I was wondering if there is any guide to handle my subscription settings and if there is, it would be awesome if someone would share me.



If not; i would appreciate if someone answer these questions:

1. How do we set our account for getting subscribed and getting money?
2. How much do we get from each subsription?
3. Is there any guide to create sub icons? If not how do we make them ?

Thanks in advance.

I am so confused. Do we keep all our donation/subscription money or does some of it go to twitch. I can't find very good info on this site. Not sure if I want to stream lol.

SO:
If you have a "tip jar" AKA people donate to YOU to get you things to keep streaming, you get all of it.

If you have a fundraiser going, people donate to a donate link to THE FUNDRAISER. You will MOST LIKELY be asked to show evidence of the fundraiser.

If you ARE PARTNERED: you have the ability to gain SUBSCRIBERS! Subscribers pay $4.99 a month to support YOU AND Twitch! AKA A part goes to Twitch and a part goes to you, I am unclear of the exact split.
