The Twitch Affiliate Program puts qualified streamers one step closer toward the dream of making a living from their passions. Twitch Affiliates can start earning income on Twitch by enabling Bits on their channel while they build their audience and work toward the coveted status of Twitch Partner. Additional revenue options will be available for Affiliates as the program develops, including Subscriptions, Ads and Game Sales
At launch, Affiliates can use Bits to start earning revenue on their channels. They will receive 1 cent per Bit used to Cheer in their channel, same as Partners do, and will have access to all Cheering settings and features with the exception of Partner Custom Cheermotes. Affiliates will be able to track revenue from Bits on the Revenue tab of their Dashboard.
A: As we invite Affiliates to begin earning on their channels, this places an additional burden on our fraud protection services. With the number of Affiliates we expect to onboard, we need extra time to screen for fraud before we are able to make payouts. This fraud screening helps us protect you from chargebacks.
