This amount will vary depending on your location and the rules that apply to your country. In your payout dashboard, you can mouse over the (i) for more information.

What is my payout history?

Halfway down the page is your Payout Dashboard. The Payout Dashboard is a record of your completed, pending, or rejected, payouts as a Twitch Affiliate or Partner as far back as October 2016.

This page shows the amount and date of each payout, the method chosen, and its status.

You can download a copy of the payout confirmation for yourself in PDF format or export the entirety of your payout history as a .CSV. You can review Tax Forms here as well. For questions on tax forms, visit our guide.

  • (A) Approval Date - This is the date that Twitch approves your payment details. When you meet our checks, we send your payout to your chosen payment method. Because all banks have different processing times, this date may not exactly match the date that payment arrives in your bank. For more information on payout timing, visit our guide When Am I Getting Paid?
  • (B) Amount Paid - Your due balance. This amount should be similar to your Estimated Net Balance.

Payout amounts in your payout history may not exactly match with what you see in your Earnings Analytics (link.twitch.tv/RevenueAnalytics page. Your Total Estimated Revenue (USD) in your Earnings Analytics page is an estimate of your earnings and not a final settlement.
