Streamlabs & Paypal have been working closely together to improve the tipping flow for Streamers, and we’re excited to announce some major upgrades. This change requires action on your part — make sure you follow this blog post carefully and thoroughly.
One Click Tipping
This allows a viewer to tip with a single click — gone are the days of having to go to Paypal.com & enter your username and password each time. Reducing this step has significantly increased conversion rates. Aka. you make mo’ money!
In our testing we’ve seen conversion on tip pages increase by 37.5% — that means 37.5% increase in tips for you!
This may seem like a simple change, but it has dramatic consequences on your bottom line.
What you need to do
Login Required for Tippers
In order to reduce and better help you fight charge backs, we will now require all users to login (any platform of choice) before tipping. This helps us create global black lists for bad actors and reduce fraud. We have a dedicated team now working on reducing fraud and fighting charge backs. More updates coming on this soon.
New PRO Checkout
A lot of people want to use the fancy PRO effects with their tips, but hated the idea of subscribing. Good news! Subscribe no more! Viewers can now (totally optional!) buy PRO effects for a single donation. Here is what the flow looks like:
Please note the PRO effects fee shows up as ‘Partner commission’ in your PayPal dashboard. Streamlabs is not taking a cut of your tip— we are and always will be a 100% free platform. This is the optional PRO effects bought by the viewer. This is what you will see:
Note: Streamlabs is a free service and we rely on PRO effects to keep the lights on. If you don’t like it, you can simply turn this feature off from the dashboard. If you choose to keep it on, we really appreciate it! Helps us to pay all the sweet folks that work hard bring you awesome features.
For those tippers who want to subscribe (lets face it, better value for money!), you can still subscribe from the top right menu. Not happy with your sub? cancel anytime!
