How To Setup A Donation Button On Twitch

Do you want to start earning a good income on Twitch? Have you recently created your channel and you don’t know how to do it? The first step to earning a good income is by accepting donations. They are a primary way of earning money on Twitch. 


If viewers find a particular streamer they like, they will donate to them. In other words, they support the streamer to create more awesome content. If you want to start earning, you need to set up donations on your Twitch channel. To do that, you need a donation button that viewers can access to send you donations. 

If you don’t know how to do it, don’t worry. That’s where this guide comes in. All you have to do is follow these simple steps and you will get right to it. So, let’s begin. Here is how you can set up a donation button on your Twitch channel.

Note: You will have to previously set up your account on “” to enable this feature.

Step 1

The first step to creating a button on Twitch is making your icon. It’s going to be an image that you will add to your channel. This image is how the button will look like. To make this process a lot easier, we suggest you check out NerdorDie. 

This is a website where you can create a custom image for your buttons. You can select the color of the image, icon, text, and more. When you are done customizing, simply download the image or right-click and save it. 

Step 2

Now, go to your Twitch channel and scroll down a bit. You will see this small button where it says “Edit Panels”. Make sure to toggle it on. 

Step 3

You will see panels pop up right under the button. What you want to do now is click on the “+” area to add a new panel. 

Step 4

Click on “Add a Text or Image Panel”. 

Step 5

Add the image you just created by clicking on the first button on the panel. You can drag and drop that image into the panel or you can select it from the file you saved it to. You can crop it to the desired size. But, that will not be necessary. The website has already set the image to the correct size. So, all you have to do is press “Done” and the image will be uploaded to your panel. 

Step 6

Now, you will need a link where people can donate. Log in to your “” account. Go to “Donation settings.” Copy the URL in the highlight. 

Step 7

Paste the URL in your new panel. Then, you can add a description and create the panel. 

Step 8

When you are done, toggle off the “Edit Panels” and your new button will appear on your channel. You will immediately see it in the panel section. 


That’s it! Now you know how to set up the donation button on your Twitch channel. Go ahead and give it a try.
