Lower payout requirements
As a small streamer, it's very difficult to get over $100 before the payout period ends. I have missed payouts because I didn't earn enough, and I know this is a grievance that others have mentioned as well. Twitch takes about 50% of our earnings so at the very least, allow us to get our minimal funds a bit easier. Perhaps instead of $100, make the requirement $50. This would be especially helpful for those brand new to affiliate status, and would liked to fund their streams.
The minimum payout threshold is now $50 for most payout methods, starting July 15 in Argentina, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Spain, and Taiwan. This change will roll out to more countries in the coming months and conclude in November. We anticipate over 70,000 streamers will see more regular payouts once this is fully rolled out.
This lower $50 minimum is available through our most popular payment methods: ACH/direct deposit, eCheck/local bank, PayPal, and check. Processing wire transfer payouts will still require a $100 minimum due to transfer fees. If you’ve selected to hold your payout, we will continue to hold your earnings until you're ready to receive them and change your selection.
Yes! As someone who is disabled and unable to work, so my only income is Twitch, I barely get payouts as I don't hit the payout threshold.
Lower it by a LOT. It is excessive as it is.
Excellent idea, especially with the cost of living sky rocketing; we need every penny we earn to pay bills, keep roofs over our heads, feed ourselves and our dependants.
its nice to see that someone made a single uservoice out of this.
With Twitch Partners leaving for other platforms due to Twitch taking 50% of their earnings regardless to how many years they've been streaming or how many followers/subscribers they have, Twitch's ineffective action on the hate raids, and other unsatisfactory responses; treating affiliates and new streamers poorly will ultimately end the desire to use Twitch as a streaming platform.
