Twitch Is Developing New Extensions To Help Streamers Monetize
Streamers can add new extensions to their channels and earn a little extra money from their viewers through Amazon sales
Twitch will soon introduce a new set of tools called Twitch Extensions for streamers to include on their channels to make watching their videos a more interactive experience. One of these tools provides the streamer with an additional source of income.
With Twitch Extensions, a streamer can create polls for the audience to ask what they’d like to see next, a schedule for viewers who want to tune in for live shows, a leaderboard and one tool called “Gear on Amazon.” This tool allows the streamer to post their favorite products on their page. If any of their viewers purchase an item from this list through the streamer’s Twitch page, the streamer receives a commission from Amazon.
The tools will launch for free; however, some of them may cost money in the future.
