What Do Twitch Streamers Earn?

While the game streaming might be a profitable option for the some. However, it is not that profitable for many of the streamers. They earn very minimum income from streaming the game from Twitch. Many of the streamers don’t find game streaming to be a profitable option. Why don’t they earn that much money because they have to rely on donations and subscriptions to earn money? 

Ad Revenue

If a streamer does not have subscribers or they don’t receive the required number of Twitch Bit donations, they not earn too much of the income. Since It is not that worth it if a twitch streamer has many views but is not able to convert them into the Subscription and Twitch Bit Donation. Twitch streamers only earn the money from ads when they become a Twitch Affiliate. Just to give you an idea of the earnings of the Twitch streamer with an affiliate, they can earn around $50-$100 per month if their one video receives around 10 views per video. 


Twitch streamers get around 50 percent of any Subscription on their channel. The subscription amount is in different numbers namely: $4.99, $9.99, and $24.99. If a viewer subscribes to a streamer’s channel, the streamer would get 50 % of it, and the rest 50% will go to Twitch. 

Twitch Bits

Another alternative for the Twitch streamers to earn money is Twitch Bits. Streamers receive around $0.01 for cheer bit used on their channel.

However, to receive the donation, streamers need to set up a donation platform by which streamers can directly donate money to their favorite streamers. However, this way works for the streamers that have large communities on the platform. Even if you receive a small amount, you can still end up earning a significant amount of money.
