Microsoft is already rolling out one of the new features the company has planned for Mixer in 2018. Called Direct Purchase, this latest addition to the platform allows streamers to earn a little affiliate revenue by promoting games they play on stream and allowing viewers to pick up a copy.
With this program in effect, streamers will be able to earn up to 5 percent per purchase. They will be able to choose what games are available — though choice will be limited to the Microsoft Store — and games can be bought without leaving the stream to make it all seamless.
As a streamer, you’ll be able to see and utilize the new feature in the coming months.
