Account linking is for streamers who stream to multiple platforms such as Twitch, Youtube, and Mixer. When you link your accounts, all events such as Follows, Donations and Subs will all show on the same widget URL for all accounts. The benefit of this is that you can use one browser source URL for the same widget regardless of what platform you're on. 

How to Link Your Accounts:

Start by linking your accounts in your account settings of your main streaming account

  • You now have the option to link secondary accounts to your primary account. The primary account should be the one that is shown on your donation page and would be the one your donation URL is bound to.
  • Once you've chosen which account you want to be your primary account, you should not change the primary account again, unless absolutely needed as changing your primary account can cause issues with your donations and/or other settings like alerts, themes, scene collections etc..
  • If you need assistance with your primary account please contact support.

How to Change Your Settings, by Account:

  • Select the platform where you wish to adjust settings from the arrow dropdown in the top right corner (see screenshot below)
  • Below we selected Twitch. If you want to edit the alerts/settings for other linked accounts, you would simple switch platforms via the dropdown next to your avatar at the top right of our site, seen in the screenshot below:

  • Since we've changed our selected platform to Twitch, we can now edit alerts and other settings that would be specific to the Twitch account.
  • If you'd like to edit alerts for other platforms simply select it here, then navigate to the widgets menu to configure.


The end result:

  1. You can now have custom alert and widget settings for each account you've linked in account settings
  2. When you receive alerts and other events from each of your linked accounts they will all work from the same widget URLs
  3. No need to change widget URLs if you plan to stream with a different account than what you have set as your primary account
