Twitch is a live streaming platform where gamers from all around the world live stream their video games for people from all around the world to view. It is a great source of entertainment for people who like gaming in the whole world. Twitch allows people to connect and enjoy a good video game together. This site is also being used by celebrities who are into gaming to earn money by streaming their video games. There are some famous celebrity twitch users who end up making hundreds and thousands of dollars from their live streams.
If you are wondering how to make money from live streaming your video games on twitch, then let me tell you that this can happen through donations. Accepting donations from your viewers on twitch is the basic way to earn income. Donations help streamers to pursue twitch as a full-time job and entertain their viewers by making streaming their video games. They spend more time online and connect with their viewers.
There are two ways through which viewers can submit donations for their favourite live streamers on twitch.
1. The first way to submit payment on Twitch is through Donorbox. You can easily submit donations through donorbox by paying through your credit card, PayPal or any ACH bank transfer. Donorbox is a third party donation transfer software which is being used by Twitch users to donate money to streamers. A donate button would be present on the streamer’s Twitch channel on which you can click to submit your donations. Donorbox is definitely a secure way to send and receive donations on Twitch.
2. Another way to donate money to someone’s Twitch channel is through Twitch Bits. Big streamers can easily make a lot of money from their Twitch channels; however, there are a lot of small streamers who struggle to support themselves financially which is why Twitch has introduced a way for these small streamers to receive money through donations. This feature is known as ‘cheering’ in the twitch world. ‘Bits’ is the twitch currency which viewers buy and spend in support of their favourite streamers on Twitch. You can buy 100 bits on twitch for $1.40 through Amazon and PayPal. You can also get bits by viewing ads on your favourite streamer’s live video streaming for 30 seconds.
