    • 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.

      • 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…

        • 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

          • 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.

            • Partner Paid Ticket Streams

              You usually get an event at Twitch if you have a large company. As a Partner on Twitch, that should also be possible. For example, if the partner wants to do a ticket stream, it is often not possible to use Cheer with Bits and unlock!

              What can the partner with Cheer with Bits and unlock loot?
              That can be for example partner Twitch Lootboxen as that cheer in his or her stream.

              Twitch Stream Paid Ticket what is that?

              • Quiet subscription

                As an introverted person, I'd very much appreciate the option of subscribing "quietly". So if I check a box, twitch alerts for this particular sub (including chat announcement) don't trigger, but I get to continue supporting my favorite streamers. Users would still have the option of using the "regular" sub alert (probably by default), for example for x-yr anniversaries, congratulatory PB/WR subs, etc, etc. Basically, sometimes you feel like being social, and sometimes you don't. Having lots of fanfare for subbing is not something everyone wants.

                Indeed subscribing when a streamer is not streaming is an option, but the idea…

                • Using Twitch Prime Token for 10$ or 25$ subscriptions

                  There should be an option to use the twitch prime token for 10$ or 25$ subscriptions to lower their price by 5$.

                  • 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!

                    • loyalty badges twitch prime

                      I came up with the idea. To add loyalty badges also at twitch prime. For example if you have 3 months twitchprime that bronze crown get or 6 months silver and 1 year and 2 years diamond. Sharing your twitch prime jubilee can be done in the twitch channel livestream, for example.

                      • 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…

                        • 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.

                          • Twitch wallet

                            Every time you want to subscribe or buy bits you must make a payment. It can also be a lot more convenient. A Twitch wallet is the solution for that. What is Twitch wallet? A Twitch wallet is your twitch credit. You can add money. So you add 20 euros to your Twitch Wallet. Then you can give subben to someone without paying a payment. Where can you see twitch wallet credit? You could see twitch wallet credit for example at your inventory. I would like to hear if you find a nice idea and would like to receive feedback…

                              • Count all time subscribed months instead of a row in the resub notification

                                It would be nice for people who, for example, had to cancel their subscription for a few months because of financial issues and lost a very long subscription streak, and now are stuck with a number of months which doesn't really represent their level of support to the streamer.

                                  • Subscriber Buttons on Other Platforms (Consoles, iOS, Android)

                                    It's rather inconvenient for users on other platforms to subscribe at the moment. Currently they have to be given the direct subscription link in order to subscribe. Even if it just were to redirect to a respective browser app, having the option to at least find the subscribe button on another platform would be nice.

                                    • Subscriber Panel

                                      An additional information panel underneath the stream that only appears if you are a subscriber.
                                      This can be used to give out links to perks, like gameserver access, teamspeak server and similar items to Partners that can't create their own subscriber only webpages

                                        It would be amazing to have a year-end spreadsheet with how many channels we subscribed to and for how many months per channel, as this would be helpful for submitting that information for tax reporting purposes. I realize this is mostly for people who also do some level of gaming for a living, but it's difficult to keep track, especially if you aren't able to afford to sub every month repeatedly. Thanks for the consideration!
