Add Paypal option to buying bits for the ones without a creditcard
I personally don't have a creditcard and i know more people don't, so maybe add an option to buy bits with Paypal?
Hello! Just wanted to give an update here that it is possible to use PayPal as a payment method when purchasing bits.

maybe look next time in your settings unless you're in a country that doesn't allow for it?
add indian payment methods like rupay or paytm.
yes, pls add it now
Already implemented. I use paypal to purchase subs and bits. This is a dead implemented idea that can be locked/removed.
To those saying paypal is an amazon competitor... Any place that takes your money and gives it to Twitch is not a competitor. It's a facilitator. Facilitators take fees, much like Twitch is a facilitator in your bits transactions so they take a fee as well. It's economy 101.
Uh - I use paypal to buy bits, and subs, and not with their credit/bank card either... so...
Oh, need to add, paypal needs to be added in your wallet.
Here's why they won't do this: Paypal is owned by Ebay, which is an Amazon competitor, so neither Amazon nor any affiliate of Amazon will accept Paypal.
(Twitch pays out to Paypal because it doesn't directly contribute to Paypal)
pls add it now
get ideal for this cause not all ppl use credit cards twitch
Hurrah! So this is how to do it for other countries: VPN connection to those available countries, and can purchase bits with paypal (even if paypal is not registered on that country).
super slow work..but at least some countries have it now. how many years it will take to get more countries added???
"Update: As of January 25th, 2018 we have added PayPal as a payment method for Bits in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, South Korea (USD), Taiwan, and Thailand"
yeah, ive been asking for this many years already.. would had easily spend hundreds on dollars here if paypal was an option.

This is so true; but i dont even understand. Most of the players plays in EU servers... for example i share some numbers about the most watched games: League of legends (EUW+EUNE) 34% but (NA+LAN) 17%... Dota 2 US - 926413 EU ( i dont counted every country just some) 955187... World of Tanks (active players) EU: 736535 NA:12348
You can see there is more potential player (who can donate) plays in EU servers, but we (most oöf us) dont use creditcards, and there is no option to donate any other ways here :(
yes indeed they should just add more options in general
yeah need that too. no credit card , and i dont get one just because twitch dont have another option, so i keep my money for myself till they have paypal
Yeah for sure it needs fixed!
They probably won't ad this because of charge backs.
Where are the non-creditcard options? You're cutting off 95% of the world by adding this limitation of us-only payment. You don't want our money? I can do subscriptions with non-creditcard options just fine on twitch; just have your devs copy/paste the functionality for bits. I also got balance on amazon.de but can't use that for amazon.com/twitch either
