Good news for Australian streamers today, as Twitch has announced they have lowered the payout threshold for Creators to AUD$50 minimum payout threshold — down from AUD$100. The roll out of this began on July 15th and is now live in Australia.
Twitch explained on their blog that this move is an important next step for them. They want to create a “faster, easier payout experience” for their streamers.
Creators should expect their money to roll into their account once the change comes to their country. These will continue monthly up until November.
As a Twitch streamer myself this is definitely exciting as not all months are equal payment wise. I think this will definitely take some of the worry out of waiting to be paidd.
