All Twitch Affiliate And Partner Requirements

All the information to get those emotes rolling!

The eligibility list of what a streamer needs to start making money on their Twitch channel. This starts off with bits, subs, and emotes as an Affiliate with many more perks as a Partner.

All Affiliate Requirements

As it stands, the requirements for becoming an Affiliate are as follows.

  • Streamers must have streamed at least 500 minutes total within the last 30 days.
  • Within those 30 days, there must have been seven separate/unique streams.
  • The average viewer count for those streams must exceed three or more.
  • The channel must have at least 50 followers.

After meeting these requirements, the streamer will receive a notification and e-mail inviting them to the Affiliate Program after a few weeks. Clicking on the Get Started button on the Creator Dashboard of Twitch will show streamers how to start monetizing their channel once all the steps are completed.

Partner Requirements

The requirements for Partner seem straightforward but have a few obstacles not listed in the Path To Partner achievement checklist. The average viewers can't be boosted from raids, hosts, or front page spotlights and must be independent of the channel. After obtaining Affiliate, streamers can look at their achievements to see the checklist.

  • Within 30 days, the streamer must broadcast a total of 25 hours or more.
  • The streamer must stream on 12 different days within the 30 day period.
  • The streamer's average viewers within that 30 day period must be 75 or more.

Once all the steps are completed, streamers will unlock the ability to apply for Partnership that Twitch will respond to through e-mail. The average time is seven days. However, there may be a long wait for some. Should a streamer face rejection, they can continue applying. There are many reasons for rejection, and the e-mail should reflect some of what may be missing to become a Partner.
