Twitch Earnings

Ninja makes money on Twitch through subscribers, donations, and advertisements.


Subscribers are viewers who pay a monthly fee to support Ninja on Twitch.

Ninja keeps 70% of his earnings from subscriptions on Twitch meaning he’ll make about $3.50 per tier 1 subscriber. This is because he qualifies for the 70/30 sub split on Twitch.


Ninja accepts donations from fans through PayPal on his Streamlabs tip jar.


Twitch streamers make an income from advertisements as well. These video advertisements will often play before you enter a stream and can re-appear at any time at the streamer’s discretion.

We estimate that streamers make around $2 per 1000 viewers on Twitch.

Considering Ninja has an exclusive contract with Twitch, it is possible that his ad earnings are higher than the average streamer.
