You Need To Know How To Setup PayPal Donations โš™๐Ÿ’ธ ๐Ÿค‘

First things first we’re going to head over
to A link will be in the description below. Up at the top right here it says login. It’s gonna bring you to this page where you
can login with Twitch. I already have my Stream Labs and Twitch account
connected, but for you it’s going to ask to connect your Twitch account to your Stream
Labs account. If you have 2 factor verification setup for
your Twitch you’re going to have to go through that process. Make sure you give Stream Labs permission
to use your Twitch data. Once you’ve completed those steps and you’re
logged in to Stream Labs it’s going to bring you to your dashboard. On the left hand side here is your donation
settings. Once you’re at this page it’s going to show
you 4 donation methods. Everyone has a PayPal I’m assuming so I’m
not going to go into the specifics on how to setup a PayPal account. If you are having trouble setting up a PayPal
account leave a comment in the description below and I will make a video walking you
through the process of creating a PayPal account. For the sake of the video I’m going to assume
you have one. My PayPal email is blurred out. Once you’ve connected your PayPal email you’re
going to hit save settings. Go up to the top here where it says methods
and click on Settings. Set your default currency. Mine is USDs. So I’m keeping that at USD. Donation page currency. Detect automatically. So if they’re donating in British Pounds they
can donate in British Pounds and it will convert to United States Dollars on your PayPal. I have the minimum amount set to 1. Maximum Message length. This is the message that people can connect
with their donation. I have this set to 255 by default. You can lengthen or shorten it. Up to you. The login required box I have unchecked. It says donor is required to login for donations. This helps you fight against fraud and charge
backs. I haven’t had any issues with fraud or charge
backs so I have this unchecked. I’m sure one day it’s going to bite me in
the ass and I’m going to have to check that box. But until then it’s unchecked. Suggested amount. 3 dollars. I had this set to $5 for a while. I’m testing out $3. What do you use? Let me know how it works for you in the comments
below. Preferred lingo. It’s default at donation. I have mine set to tip this is also a test. Your page. You can open this in a new window. It’s going to bring you to this page. Where your end user is going to be able to
input their tip amount their message and select the Gif they want to use. Then hit tip and fill out their PayPal information. Allow pro viewers. I have this set to Yes, I love Stream Labs
I want to help. Because I love Stream Labs so I don’t want
to hit no. I have no idea what this does. We offer a pro membership to members and viewers. This membership is completely optional and
helps us keep the lights on. If you find Stream Labs useful as a broadcaster
please consider leaving this option enabled so we can continue to provide you awesome
services. Yeah so I have that enabled. Button color I just have that set to default. Donation memo, thanks for supporting my stream! I have the donation leaderboard enabled. Show donation amounts. Banner override; that’s how I have this cool
banner. If you don’t have a banner just leave this
alone. Profanity filter disabled. I’m not sure why I have these checked. But that’s just the default settings. Then you’re gonna hit save settings. Now if you have your alert box setup for your
followers. You don’t have to do anything extra. As soon as somebody goes to donate through
that link it’s going to pop up on your stream just like this. Obviously it’s not going to have that cool
effect, because that’s something I got made custom to my channel. But you can change that in your alert box
settings. I’ll go over that in a future video if this
gets 25 likes. We’ll go ahead and make that video. All right. I hope you enjoyed this video. Make sure you give it a big thumbs up. Don’t forget to subscribe and hit the bell
to get notified when I have new content coming out. Have yourself a great day!

  4. I don't have a PayPal account yet so I am going to make one, do I need to use a personal account for streamlabs donations or should I use the business account

  5. Sorry Iโ€™m a noob. But is the PayPal email the email that you sign up with? Or itโ€™s the email that PayPal gives you?

  6. People who try to donate to me says that they canโ€™t and Iโ€™ve followed all of your steps, they are using PayPal to donate, they say that the streamlabs link just brings them to a blank page when they donate….help?

  7. Great video but not what I needed. My friend has a Paypal link on his and it goes straight to Paypal. So I Was looking for a way to link just the donation page of Paypal so that streamlabs shouldn't even pop up.

  13. Okay. Maybe this is obvious but nobody ever addresses it nor seems to answer it. For twitch and patreon donations and subscriptions as well as YouTube monetization do you need a business or personal PayPal account?

  14. I'll skip the BS for you and let you know the big info. You'll want to upgrade to business account. Once you make a certain amount on paypal they send the info to the IRS, meaning you NEED to claim taxes on all that money. If you set it up through business then you can implement in your taxes. Literally just make a business account and connect it to streamlabs and you'll be set. That's how all big streamers do it.

  30. if i'm just starting streaming and making a brand new paypal account and i'm under 18 what should I do? i'm 15 so above 13 because I know a few laws require you to be above 13.

  36. Many people don't want to use the Streamlabs link for paypal and want to donate directly through paypal. Is there no way to link your paypal instead of the Streamlabs passthrough?

  37. so according to paypal:
    Be prepared to provide the following information:

    Evidence of nonprofit registration with any applicable regulatory body, such as Articles of Incorporation, IRS 501(c)(3) determination letter or documentation of candidacy.

    A pre-printed bank statement or voided check from your account. Starter checks are not acceptable. The organization needs to own each bank account linked to this PayPal account. You can't use a personal bank account.

    Information about how you intend to use the money (such as donations or membership fees).

    Your mission statement (if applicable).

    A subordination or fundraising letter (if applicable).

    We use these documents for several reasons:

    To verify that your nonprofit is registered, because we offer discounted rates to 501(c)(3) organizations.

    To ensure weโ€™re meeting our regulatory requirements for the government.

    To reassure donors that their money is going to a registered nonprofit organization.

    ME: so all this info is to have discount rates, this is not a prerequisite to receive donations, I've heard you need to inform paypal you want to receive donation money
