news devices Twitch makes life easier for ZeratoR for ZEvent 2022
Twitch wants to encourage the charitable life as much as possible. For this, the streaming platform unveils a feature that greatly facilitates the donation and management of funds by the streaming device.
Facilitate donations to give more
Twitch regularly prides itself on being the go-to platform for major online charity events. This is an opportunity to introduce an internal functionality to make donations as easy as possible directly from Twitch. Good news for ZEvent 2022 scheduled for September.
It allows you to consolidate the funding of the association you want to support as a live broadcast operator. The platform promises a “just a few clicks” experience to set up the process. The main feature is bit transfer as well as donation subscriptions. Many people sign up for the streaming device thinking the money will go to charity. Fortunately, this was not the case.Now everything will be centralized and sent to the association.
To set up a charitable stream, just go to the control panel, then to the “Charity” tab. Then you choose the cause you want to defend and then add the goal to be achieved. Then just start the live broadcast!
Twitch does not take a commission
Donations are automatically sent to the “PayPal Giving Fund” which then manages all the logistics. Twitch does not take any commission on donations. The stats are then sent back to Twitch for direct feedback from the money donated. The goal is to be able to make donations as transparently as possible and make it as easy for viewers to donate as possible.
The feature is currently in beta. Some banners will receive an email letting them know that their account is adding this feature. Only a few people will have access to the Twitch Charity. The list of associations is also limited at the moment, and Twitch promises to add more at the earliest and whenever.
In the question/answer category there are some additional details on how to set up a charity group. On the other hand, it seems to be lacking in some useful functions. At the moment, it does not appear that it is possible to set several levels for the donation target. The system allows adding only one link. This could be a problem for ZEvent 2022 which will have 5 links at a time.
We are back. The #ZEVENT2022 From 8 to 11 September!
This year we wanted to commit ourselves to the environment. For such an important and uniting cause, these are 5 associations I have chosen and we will support them for an exceptional weekend.

This functionality still appears to be broken for the event. Especially since ZeratoR often talks about the organizational complexity of fundraising. Servers hosting donations are also down every ZEvent. Twitch probably has more power in its servers to absorb the mass of surprise donations.
Twitch has time by September 8 to implement other functionality. It’s a safe bet that the streaming platform and ZeratoR are in touch about adding this feature. And as a reminder, the most recent event from ZEvent is the one that made the most money for an association in France on Twitch.
