Fair payments and payouts
$4.99 for a subscription and 50/50 payout is what content creators sign up for.
What they get in reality:
If based in Europe, pay 5 Euros ($6 per sub)
If based in UK, pay £5 (a whopping $8 per sub!)
Do content creators receive 50% of these extra payments, no, they receive the appropriate % of $5
Is it fair for people based in Europe, UK, Canada, Aus, etc. to pay MORE for subs than the US and yet as a streamer receive significantly less than the 50% they are promised in the affiliate/partner agreeement? Of course not...
PLEASE FIX THIS so that a) People can CHOOSE which currency they pay in b) If people choose to pay in a different currency that the conversion is reasonable and close to $5 c) That if people are to be charged more that the content creator gets the agreed % revenue
This so much!
I am in the UK and not only is the 50/50 cut much too much, but the fees on top and currency conversions make it so we get almost nothing.
my friend didn't get the Subtember discount and half of 8.99 is precisely 4.50 from 3 subs I got $6.56 how? da sack and for my first sub I literally got 1.56 how does that work? like da sack? please fix this or provide a reasonable explanation.
Same in Australia ($8.99 per sub) but I know 50% of that ISN'T going to the streamer and instead Twitch is pocketing the difference. This stops me supporting the streamers I watch why would I ever get a sub of my own let alone gift subs when I'm being charged almost 40% more than someone in the US and none of that extra 40% goes to the streamer? And Twitch wonders why people block ads when they treat both subs and streamers like this.
I agree . . .
Also agree, mark up in GBP is ridiculous!
I agree. Not only is it unfair to both the streamer and the viewers, it also feels dishonest and greedy. If it's $5 in US, make it 4 Euros for the Europeans.
I don't get paid a different rate for each hour i work, I don't see why there should be differing rates in subscriptions depending on where you are and this money paid should definitely not differ from person to person or in amount paid to the streamer. All should be fair in streamer perspective.
Paying nearly $8 a sub is crazy....
COULDNT AGREE MORE!
