  • Affiliate Programs.

You are definitely a twitch streamer and maybe a new one and hence you are thinking to explore the boundaries and head forward to earn money on Twitch. So yes this is one of the ways, Twitch streamers earn money. Twitch affiliate is like getting partnered with Twitch and all that you need to do so is to have 50k or more followers on Twitch. And through this, you will pay a certain part of the amount of pre-roll Ad that Twitch runs along with the streams. But in a broader aspect, it is not the best way to earn money as you will not be able to earn much. But of course, having this is also an achievement and a way through which Twitch streamers earn money.

  • Subscription.

This is one of the best and a better way of earning money through Twitch and also the most significant factor as the subscription is the major chunk of money earned by the streamers on Twitch.

Twitch subscription is a little different from a platform like YouTube, as the subscription did to a channel is not free here but the viewers have to pay to subscribe to a channel. They are given two option of either subscribing free for a month or buy a monthly subscription.  This feature not only supports the streamer financially but also gives them various other perks like badges to use in the chat room and also special emoji and also the ability to watch streams without any advertisement. Twitch subscription cost between five to twenty US dollars and the viewer’s pay according to how much they want to pay. Out of this money half goes to the streamers and half to twitch.

  • Through Bits.

This is something that the viewers can purchase on the platform. Bits in a way is the currency of Twitch. In a broader sense bits are animated emoji that appear in the chat window when the fans cheer with their bits. The money that they spend purchasing bits, a part of that money you will get when they cheer you with the same bits.

  • Through Donation.

Viewers on Twitch also have the option of donating the desired amount to their favorite streamer to support them and show their love towards them. The best benefit of this source of income is that there is no sharing of the money with Twitch and it all goes to the streamers.

  • Twitch Affiliate.

Twitch affiliate is different from its programs. This why you must definitely have seen some streamers having a link to the streaming gears that they use, the games that they like or play, or even feature some product on their screen or putting a box to buy stuff from Amazon. Every time a viewer or user click on this screen, the streamer receives a certain amount for the link building that being a source of going to that particular link.

All the ways mentioned above won’t bring a lot amount of money but if you wish to earn more and you have a very popular stream that is you regularly have 100 to 200 people watching your stream then you can be a part of a special program that will give you much more than all of these.

  • Twitch Partner Program.

If you fit in the above criteria you can apply to the Twitch Partner Program. Once your account is approved for this program, you will definitely get some great monetization options and also the best thing is Twitch will make you and your content reach more and more people by showing it to the right audience. And this will increase your viewership which will in turn give you more subscriptions, more donations, and getting sponsorship for an Ad that you can run on your stream and also product placement opportunities or even invited to a convention like a pax where you will pay for making an appearance.

So yes there were all the major ways that the Twitch streamers earn from and also as I had mentioned above the road to this is not easy, you need to be patient and passionate about your work and the result.

So as you know them all, you can go for it.
