At least that’s what the social network promises in a blog post announcing the upcoming launch of Twitch Charity. The new feature is available in beta mode to a limited number of content creators for now.
For instavideasts, it makes the process of fundraising more transparent and easierit is claimed.
The financial component of the tool will be managed by PayPal Giving Fund, which already uses PayPal technologies to enable fundraising on various platforms such as Facebook or eBay. So, no headaches in sight with the tax authorities.
The social network will gradually add to a list of recognized charities from which instavideasts can choose the destination of donations. A page explaining how to set up fundraisers has been put online.
Twitch assures in its blog post that all donations will go directly to PayPal Giving Fund, which says for its part that it does not charge service fees on donations in Canada.
People using Twitch who wanted to fundraise on the platform until now had to turn to third-party companies, which often took a commission on donations.
