Unlike donations on Twitch, Mixer doesn't offer a way to donate directly through their app but there are a variety of different services that will let you get the job done. How to Set Up Donations with Mixer When it comes to donations with Mixer you have two basic options. You can leave a link on your profile to your Paypal, Venmo or Cash App and let watchers donate to you that way. Paypal is the easiest way to go since you can set up a business account making tracking your taxes much easier in the long run, or use your personal account. Just remember that if you use a personal account, your email will be viewable by anyone who donates to you. Remember to check the fine print as most apps will take a small percentage of your donations when you deposit them to a bank account or debit card. Thankfully, there are a variety of third-party services which are built specifically for donations to streamers. Each of these works a little bit differently, and will need to be set up independent of your Mixer stream. Most of these applications offer more than just donation functionality too, they give you access to all sorts of different features that can enhance your stream to make it better than ever. Mac users are going to have the most issues though, as several of the third-party programs are only available for Windows 10 or Xbox One. Paypal Link: You can drop a link in your bio that directs users to your Paypal account and let viewers donate that way.StreamJar: A free service that lets you accept tips and gives users incentives when they donate. StreamJar does not take any cut of the tips you receive.StreamLabs: A free service built specifically for Windows. It lets you accept donations through Paypal, add overlays to your stream, and is open source. StreamLabs also gives you access to chats so you can easily stay in touch with viewers while you are broadcasting. In order to set up a third party service, you'll need to sign up and follow the instructions on the page. This means creating an account, and getting everything set up so you can start streaming again! How to add a Paypal Link to Your Mixer Account Open Mixer. Select your Avatar. Select Broadcast Dashboard. Select Customize. Scroll down to Channel Description. Select Edit. In another tab open Paypal. Select Manage Buttons. Under button type select donations. Scroll down and select continue. Paypal gives you a ton of different options for a button, but you won't need them. So, you can ignore all of those options and scroll right down to continue through the process. Select continue again. Select the type of currency you want to receive donations in. Make sure you select the currency that you want to receive donations in, especially if you don't want USD. This is particularly handy for any users who are streaming from outside of the US. Select finish and get code. Select shareable URL. Copy the URL. Go back to your Mixer tab. In the Channel Description highlight the text you want to use as a link. Select the link icon from the text editor. The link icon looks like a chain and is directly to the right of the format buttons. Paste the Paypal Url to create your link. Select OK to save your link. Select Save.
