Twitch is a fantastic place to watch some of the world’s best gamers play and stream your favourite titles. Nowadays, if there’s a particular streamer that you want to support, you have the ability to donate to that particular channel. That’s right, you can fund your favourite streamers to help them create even better content!
In the following guide, we’ll be showing you exactly how to donate on Twitch. Luckily, the process isn’t all that difficult, so let’s waste no time and dive straight into the method!
Open The Channel Of Your Favourite Streamer
You will need to have the channel of your favourite streamer loaded for donations. So start by doing that.
Scroll Down The Page Until You See Their Donation Button
Next, scroll down the page until you see the channel's unique donation button. See the screenshots for what it will look like.
Not all streamers have a donation button, so if you can't find one, chances are they won't be accepting donations.
Fill In The Donation Details And Click Donate
Clicking the donation button will open up a donations tab which will look something like the screenshot above. This is where you make your donation. Fill in the amount you'd like to donate alongside a donation message. After doing so, simply click the 'Donate' button at the bottom.
Log In and load the streamer's channel
Simply log into your Twitch account and find the streamer channel you'd like to support with bits.
Is Subscribing A Way To Support Streamers
Many Twitch streamers now have the option to subscribe to their channel. This usually costs around $3-5 dollars – depending on what tier class you’d like to subscribe to. Subscribers get special privileges within the channel, including chat and emote features.
Subscribing to a streamer is a great way to support your favourite streamer. That said, unlike donations, the Twitch streamer doesn’t receive the total cost of the subscription – Twitch also takes a cut.
