Start Earning Money

First, you must be streaming on Twitch. Once your IndieRaid account is approved, go to https://www.indieraid.com, and click on a game you want to play.

Once the game page is open, follow the instruction under "How to play/install", and make sure the game is ready to be streamed. If this game requires installation, then make sure to download the game first, and install it before streaming.

Once you are ready to play the game, press [Start Streaming] button, and start playing the game. Once your session is completed, Indie Raid will automatically log your game session into reports, and credit you with your earnings.

You MUST have VOD recording enabled in Twitch, so IndieRaid can produce links to your gameplay recordings for the game developers to assess. If a game developer is unable to watch your VOD (within 14 days of your streaming), then he/she may start a dispute process and you may not receive your payment and potentially get your account banned.

Estimating Earning

Each game in IndieRaid.com has “daily” bounty assigned. This is the maximum amount that all streamers can earn in a day. This bounty renews every day. You’ll earn money after playing a game over a set minimum amount of time (e.g. 10 minutes). The amount of earning is determined by streaming channel’s viewer count, and the number of clicks you garner on your Indie Raid Twitch Panel.

On average, a streamer with 100 viewers should earn about $15 for playing a game for 15 minutes. If this streamer plays 3 different games, then he/she will earn about $45.

Reports

Streamers can check their earnings in [Reports] page. It will show the earning information and play-history grouped by date.

Clicking on any one of the date rows will expand it and show the detailed report of your daily activity.

Payout

Streamers will be paid on the 1st day of every month. Our minimum payout amount is $20.
