Can you make money on Mixer?

If you're looking to make money while streaming on Mixer, it's certainly possible with some effort and dedication. One way is through becoming a Mixer Partner, which will allow you to make money through ad revenue. You'll need to meet some requirements though, which are detailed further down. Another way to make money streaming on Mixer is through activating the Direct Purchase program on your stream.

Direct Purchase allows viewers to buy a game or DLC through your stream. You'll make 5% of any purchases, which isn't a bad deal, especially since you don't have to be a Mixer Partner to activate this feature. It's limited to Xbox and Windows 10 games available through the Microsoft Store, though.

What are the requirements for being a Mixer Partner?

To be a Mixer Partner, you'll need to have an active account that's at least two months old. You'll also need to have over 2000 followers, at least 12 streams per month, hitting at least 25 hours streamed per month. Once you're a Mixer Partner, you'll benefit from ad revenue and some small amounts of revenue from every time viewers use a Skill in your chat.

Some other methods

It's also possible to get sponsorships as a streamer, though this is far more complicated and won't happen until you have a very devoted following. Focus on building your brand before hoping for this to happen. In the meantime, while you're trying to make Partner, you can always set up a Patreon donation page in exchange for hitting specific streaming goals, though this is a third-party platform and not something directly handled by Mixer.
