Just as we’ve brought powerful monetization tools to creators, we’re now doing the same for you, our developer partners. At our first ever Developer Day, we announced that in-extension digital item sales will be available in beta on November 27, 2017.
Simply put, in-extension purchases will enable viewers to see, buy and use digital goods within extensions. For example, imagine creating an extension for a virtual pet where viewers can buy pet food within the experience. Or imagine your extension allowing viewers to buy stickers that appear in the stream to other viewers. Extensions provide a completely new opportunity to directly monetize each specific type of viewing activity.
We’d love to hear if you are interested in building extensions on Twitch - let us know by filling out the form below if you’d like to hear more about this opportunity!
