You Can Now Tip Twitch Streamers Using PayPal

Tipping your favorite streamer on Twitch is a feature that has been around for a while, where viewers can purchase things like “Bits” which they can then use to tip streamers, as opposed to giving them cash directly. However Twitch has since announced a new way to purchase Bits, and that is through PayPal.

According to Twitch, “If you are in the US or one of the EU countries listed below, you can buy Bits on any Twitch channel that has Bits enabled by clicking the ‘Get Bits’ button above the video player. Once you select the bundle you want to buy, you will be able to choose PayPal as a payment method.”

Twitch notes the benefits of using PayPal to send Bits, saying, “Bits still provides chargeback protection for the streamer whether they were purchased via PayPal or another method.” Note that using PayPal to tip Twitch streamers isn’t exactly new. Prior to Twitch offering official methods to tip streamers, there were streamers who would ask (and some probably still do) for donations that can be made through PayPal.

While it’s not the most groundbreaking feature, if you do prefer using PayPal for your purchases, then this option will come in handy. In the meantime it seems that ever since Twitch instituted its tipping system, it has reportedly made streamers $5.9 million collectively.
