  • Q: How can I see how much money I’ve made this month?

    You can see your monthly estimated advertising revenue on the Partnership tab of the Broadcaster Dashboard. Please keep in mind that daily advertising revenue estimates may be incomplete for up to 48-72 hours after a broadcast.
  • Q: What should I do if I don’t receive a payment?

    Please email Partner Support if you believe you have not received a scheduled payment.
  • Q: What is the difference between pre-roll, mid-roll, and post-roll advertisements?

    Pre-roll advertisements begin playing when a viewer first joins a broadcast, before they begin viewing content. Mid-roll advertisements are controlled by Twitch Partners and triggered through the Broadcaster Dashboard. Partners can determine the length and frequency of mid-roll advertisements, subject to certain restrictions. Post-roll advertisements are played at the end of a broadcast, once the broadcaster goes offline.
  • Q: Is there a limit to the number of commercials I can play?

    Twitch Partners can run a commercial break once every eight (8) minutes. We encourage Partners to experiment with different lengths and frequencies of commercial breaks to determine what works best for them.
  • Q: How can I enable subscriptions for my channel?

    If you’re a Twitch Partner, please email Partner Support for more information about channel subscriptions.
  • Q: How can I add a delay to my broadcast?

    You can control the broadcast delay feature from the Broadcaster Dashboard. This feature supports a maximum delay of up to 15 minutes.
