VibePay has bolstered the way the gaming community and in specific streamers receives tips, through the integration of content creator tools.
Integrating VibePay with one of the fastest-growing production platforms for live streaming grants gamers the opportunity to receive money efficiently from viewers and subscribers.
Luke Massie, CEO of VibePay, said: “Gaming is one of the most creative and rapidly growing industries in the world, yet the community is still making and receiving tips through dated payment methods.
“As streaming is the main source of income for many people, they shouldn’t have to pay unfair fees and wait days, or even weeks, to receive tips which they rely on to live. Payments should be instant and seamlessly integrated into the streaming experience with no fees. Through our new partnerships, we want to make content creators’ lives easier and also help others who want to make the streaming dream a reality.”
The integration increases engagement between users and viewers, with it also accelerating the speed at which they engage in commerce activity. As well as this, gamers will no longer be impacted by unfair payment fees and have to waste time sharing bank details through potentially unsafe methods.
Shay Ben Yacov, Product Manager at StreamElements, said: “StreamElements provides content creators with the platform to turn their passions and talents into a business. With streaming becoming the main profession for many users on our platform, VibePay will help these creators get paid easily through tips while being able to keep 100% of what they are given. This is just the start of the journey with the team at VibePay and we can’t wait to see what 2021 has in store.”
Through the programme, VibePay will be targeting the biggest names in the streaming world to continue to grow its community, which includes pioneering grime artist, JME, who actively takes part in #VibePayFriday and recently promoted the testing of the product on Twitter.
Massie concluded: “We are on a mission to power the workforce of the future, and the gaming industry is at the heart of this. By integrating with the world’s largest production platform for livestreaming, we will bring our forward-thinking, innovative approach to the gaming community to make VibePay the go-to way to pay and get paid in the streaming world.”
Expert Analysis: Streaming has been a sector that has experienced immense growth in recent times and for somebody as iconic as JME to be behind this partnership is a clear affirmation of its positive work.
