  1. Subs get 3 Emotes for $4.99

    1. Having three emotes available at $4.99 instead of $9.99/$24.99 gives viewers/followers more motivation to subscribe.

    2. Three emotes (instead of one) help affiliates stand up against partners with tons of emotes, especially when some people subscribe to partners ONLY for their emotes.

    3. Emotes serve as free advertising for the channel when subscribers use them in different streams or on Discord. (People will check out the affiliate if they like the emotes and possibly subscribe.)

    4. More emotes at $4.99 can lead to more subscriptions which helps the channel grow. Subscriptions lead to higher viewership which can help affiliate…

  2. Forced Subscriptions are not Charity, they are Advertisement

    Currently I had to experience being gifted a subscription in a chat I just joined to listen to out of the blue. I immediately followed (because you might as well) but then I unfollowed and then disabled the subscription.

    The Twitch Streamer then acted offended that someone would not want a subscription.

    It is my belief that you should refuse unwanted gifts because they give the wrong impression. Given the reaction from a simple refusal it is no longer that these subscriptions are gifts but forced advertisements.

    I request that you have the option to turn off subscription gifts (aka:…

  3. Blocking a banned person from gifting subs to the channel

    When a person gets banned from the channel it should also revoke the persons permission to do a gifting to that specific channel. Or some other way to block a person from gifting subs to the channel, this is mainly to block out either people we might expect for doing frauds OR by someone whom been banned for a reason and should not be able to get attention through gifting subs.

  4. Have a setting to block receiving all gifts

    There is already an option for blocking receiving gifts on channels we don't follow but we need an option for blocking receiving gifts entirely.

    Some of use don't want to receive gifts when we are following a channel, yet we still get them since Twitch can give out gifts to random people through the "Gift to the Community" option. The gift is then just wasted instead of being given to someone who may use it.

  6. Upgrade/Downgrade Sub on next payment option

    It would be neat to be able to change my auto payment for subs for a higher or lower tier and keep my current payment date and month streak without having to unsubscribe and resubscribe at the higher tier or paying for both tiers on the same day.

  7. Better Sub Emotes

    just an idea to try to improve the experience of the tiers.

    5 emotes for tier 1, 3 emotes for tier 2 and 2 emotes for tier 3.

    And let the streamer be able to customize the sub-badge of each tier, for example, the badge would be 1 star for tier 1, 2 stars for tier 2 and 3 stars for tier 3.

    Then let each streamer decide whether or not they want to customize.

  8. Path to Partner Achievement should consider # Subscribers as an alternative/in addition to Viewers

    Right now, the Path to Partner achievements depend on the number of average concurrent viewers (>75). Some channels have a smaller community but a large amount of monetary support benefiting Twitch. The Path to Partner achievements should be modified to support the high-quality channels that are attracting paying subscribers to Twitch but which might have smaller active viewing communities.

    For example, it might be reasonable for partner status to unlock either at:

    75 viewers and 0 subscriber points
    50 viewers and 25 subscriber points maintained for 3 months
    25 viewers and 50 subscriber points maintained for 6 months

    Rather than…

  9. Amazon Smile Charity Integration for bits/subs and broadcasts

    smile.amazon.com allows amazon users to select a charity organization from a massive database and 0.5% of purchases will be given to that charity.

    It would be fantastic if users on Twitch could select a charity from the existing Amazon Smile database on their Twitch profile settings, where an amount is taken from the Twitch portion of every sub purchase or bit purchase. The broadcaster receives the same amount, but a small percentage is donated from the bit fee or Twitch portion of sub revenue. Users making this choice could receive a special chat badge indicating they support a charity!

  10. Subscriber points / Subscriber Store

    Every subscriber is supporting both Twitch and the partnered streamer of their liking. Subscribers get things like emotes and badges, but what if they get even more?

    If you subscribe to a streamer, you get 1 point for example. It doesn't matter which partnered streamer. If you resub, you get points depending on the amount of months you resubbed: resubbed for the 10th month in a row to a streamer, you get 10 points instead of 1.

    You can spend these subscriber points at the subscriber store to buy exclusive emotes or badges they can permanently unlock. They can also…

  11. FEEDBACK: Stacking Gifted Subs - VaughnWhiskey

    Hey Twitch Feedback!

    My name is Vaughn Whiskey and I am a affiliate on Twitch. I love that we can now gift subs to people but as a streamer around the holiday months I want to gift subs to viewers for a Christmas gift. Now the problem is that I have to try and do it when their sub runs out and asking them when their sub is out kind of ruins the surprise.

    I would love to see stack-able gifting so say it's half way through their sub i can gift them another month for them ahead of their…

  13. Retroactive Sub Gifting

    Allow sub gifting for people who are currently subscribed to the channel you want to send a gift for - just add a month to the current subscription they have. That way, you don't have to wait until the time when the person is no longer subscribed, and multiple people can easily contribute to / send gifts to one person.

  14. Prorate subscription price based on subscription time not used when purchasing a subscription upgrade

    If I sub to a user with a 6 month 4.99 sub and then during my third month decide that I want to upgrade my sub to 9.99 I think Twitch should charge me the difference of time remaining and then once my sub renews at the end of the initial 6 months, it would charge me for my plan at the new price.

    In the case above, I have 3 months left unused in my sub. So for today, to upgrade my sub, I pay $15 to be brought up to the 9.99 tier for the next three months.…

    We are working on some more robust multi-month tech and robust upgrade/downgrade tech. So when we get both done we’ll definitely incorporate this functionality.

  15. Gift-sub stats

    It would be absolutely awesome if you could see the amount of subs gifted by just mousing over the sub gifting badge (if shown). Just like you can see emote prefix + channel owner by mousing over it and how you can see 3, 6, 12-month sub badges. It would be nice to be able to see the amount of gifted subs for individuals in your stats panel too.

  18. Mobile gift subbing

    Please allow sub gifting on mobile.

    The current process of going through the browser in desktop mode to sub gift disturbs your experience viewing the channel and usually means you miss the announcement in chat.

  19. Twitch royalties like author royalties

    The idea is the same as behind apple apps: devs create author's product, apple sells it and shares royalties (fee, honorarium) with an author. This kind of licensing can make taxing easier (paying, defining) and fits well behind the idea of creative product with non stable sales and twitch as an agent selling it

  20. Allow Gift Subscribers to announce Custom Sub Anniversary messages like normal Resubscribers

    https://help.twitch.tv/customer/portal/articles/2457351

    Twitch resubs have the ability to announce their sub anniversaries with custom messages, however those who are on multiple month streaks that have been gifted subscriptions don't have the ability to do this. It'd be nice to be able to do this.
