Twitch Bits are an underrated part of growing and properly monetizing your Twitch channel. If you've never heard of them, don't worry. We have you covered.
If you're just figuring out how to get paid on Twitch, then you need to know about Twitch Bits.
Twitch Bits are a super cool virtual currency that can be used in a variety of ways. After acquiring Bits, you can use them to support your favorite streamers, gain access to exclusive chat rooms, and even unlock special loot during esport gaming events.
Additionally, if you are a content creator on Twitch, using Bits earns you badges that will help you expand your community by attracting free Twitch viewers and thus boosting your channel's popularity.
Purchasing and using Bits plays a vital part in keeping the Twitch community active and engaging. They also promote a positive relationship between streamers and their fans, helping to keep the entire live-streaming experience fun and enjoyable for everyone involved.
Bits allow viewers to support their favorite channels without ever leaving the Twitch platform. At the click of a button, Twitch users can purchase Bits using Paypal, Amazon Pay, or with a valid credit card. This creates a safe, easy, and convenient method of donating to a live-streamer.
The current Bit prices are listed below:

Buying Bits on Twitch is much easier than legitimately buying Twitch viewers. The purchasing process consists of a few simple steps that can be completed in a matter of moments.
As mentioned above, the easiest way to accumulate large numbers of Bits is to purchase them. However, there are a few alternative methods to earn free Twitch Bits.
Watching ads is a great way to earn a few extra Bits without spending a cent, but first, you have to know where to find these special ads.
To access these "free Bit ads," simply open a broadcast from any of your favorite Twitch streamers, then locate the chat bar. You will see two small icons on the right side of this bar, one that looks like a smiley face, and one that looks like a diamond. Click on the diamond-shaped Bits icon. This will open the Cheering menu containing a small purple box that says, "Get Bits."
After clicking the "Get Bits" button, you will be given the option to watch an ad for a few free Bits (usually 5 or 10).
Sometimes you may try to watch an ad and find that the "watch ad" option is greyed-out with a message that says, "Try again later." This is due to a limited supply of ads per a given time period. So once all the ads have been watched, you'll have to wait for them to reset before you can earn any more free Bits.
Twitch RPG (Twitch Research Power Group) is Twitch's official program dedicated to improving the game streaming platform's overall user experience. Joining the program is an excellent way to earn free Bits.
Once a member of Twitch RPG, you will have the opportunity to take part in surveys. These surveys often have a large Bit payout (usually 500), making them exceptionally worthwhile if you have a few extra minutes to spare.
The only catch is that you have to be quick. Just like with the "free Bit ads," These surveys are first come, first served, so If you receive an invitation to take part in one, the faster you accept, the better.
Cheering is one of the primary uses for Twitch Bits. In addition to subscribing and donating, Cheering with Bits is an excellent way to show your favorite channel's support in a fun and exciting way. Cheering can be used to celebrate or show your enthusiasm during pivotal moments of gameplay, or simply to stand out in the chat.
When you Cheer during a live stream, a "Bit Gem Emote" or “Cheermote" will be displayed in the stream chat. The more Bits you use to Cheer, the bigger the Emote will be.
There are a few different ways to initiate a Cheer. The first way is to click on the diamond-shaped "Bit Gem" icon. This will pull up a selection of other Cheermote options.
The second method is to simply type "Cheer" into the chat bar, followed by the number of Bits you would like to use. For example, if you want to emote with 100 Bits, simply type "Cheer100."
As you Cheer, you will earn chat badges for each individual channel so others can recognize your support and donations.
While Bits can be purchased and used by anyone on Twitch, only Partners and Affiliates can accept Cheers. If you've already reached one or both of these statuses, enabling Cheering is relatively easy and straightforward.
In the Cheer menu, there is a section entitled Bits Threshold Settings. This is where you can set and adjust the minimum number of Bits required to use Cheermotes on your live-streams.
Becoming a Twitch Affiliate is the first necessary step to start earning actual revenue from Cheers and Bits. Twitch realizes that creating high-quality content takes dedication, so they created the Affiliate program to help streamers make a living off of doing what they love. To qualify for the program, there are a few requirements that must first be met.
In addition to the money you earn from Bits, as an Affiliate, you can also receive ad revenue and a portion of game sales that originate from your channel.
Reaching Partner status is the ultimate goal for many content creators. In addition to being committed to delivering high-quality live broadcasts, Twitch Partners are also very active and influential in the Twitch community and on social media. Unlike the Affiliate program, you must apply to become a Partner, but first, you have to meet the following qualifications within 30 days.
On top of all of the Affiliate benefits, as a Twitch Partner, you gain access to numerous premium features that can help you optimize your live-streams to generate the most income and draw in larger audiences.
If you are a channel owner, Twitch will pay you one cent for every Bit used on your channel. So if one of your fans spends 100 Bits on an Emote during your live-stream, you would receive one US Dollar. After you accumulate the equivalent of $100, You can begin to cash out and convert Twitch Bits to USD.
Showing appreciation for the support of your audience members is essential. Giving a shout-out and a "thank you" whenever someone Cheers or gives a donation goes a long way. Here are a few "do's and "don'ts" from Twitch to keep in mind when dealing with Bit donations.
Giving your fans the recognition they deserve will ultimately result in more Cheers and an engaged audience. In the end, your success wouldn't be possible without the support of your viewers, so be sure to acknowledge that and give back to them.
