Verified users on Twitch have gained Twitch Partner Status. The verified badge shows that you have been accepted to the Twitch Partner Program.
Path to Verified on Twitch (Twitch Partner)
Additionally, before you can meet the requirements for Twitch Partner, you first need to reach the status of Twitch Affiliate.
Twitch Affiliate Requirements
To become a Twich Affiliate, you need:
- 50 followers
and over the last 30 days:
500 total minutes broadcast, 7 unique broadcast days, and an average of 3 or more concurrent viewers.
Additionally, all Affiliates need to provide Tax ID information in order to be paid.
After being accepted as an affiliate, you will need to grow you community before being ready for partnership and verification…
Twitch Partner Requirements
In order to apply to become a partner, you’ll need to first achieve these three milestones on your account:
- Stream for a minimum of 25 hours within the last 30 days.
- Stream a minimum 12 separate days within the past month.
- Have a minimum average of 75 concurrent viewers.
Once submitted, your application can take months to be reviewed and it might be a long, drawn out process. Some streamers have reported it can take up to 3 months.
You also may see certain users with a verified icon next to a Twitch Staff badge but this looks slightly different from a normal verified Twitch account.
Each channel might have VIP’s, mods, and other unique badges but a verified account has a global badge everywhere on Twitch.
If you really want to grow your stream, you need to have some basic equipment to boost the quality. One of the most important parts is for your audio to stand out. Check out our list of the best audio mixers for streamers.
