VibePay, which powers account to account payments between consumers, friends and businesses, today announces the integration with content creator tools and services provider StreamElements to transform the way the gaming community makes and receives tips.
Integrating VibePay with the fastest growing production platforms for live streaming, means gamers can instantly send and receive money from viewers and subscribers, directly from account to account for free. Gamers will no longer be burnt by unfair payment fees and have to waste time sharing bank details through unsafe methods, instead they can now focus on what they love doing the most and receive 100% of their tips.
VibePay is disrupting payments within the gaming industry, benefitting gamers, streamers and their audiences. Partnering with StreamElements and other platforms in the space accelerates VibePay’s mission to make account to account payments the default way to pay and get paid.
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.”
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.”
Rewarding streamers for views
To mark the new partnerships with StreamElements, VibePay is also launching its affiliate programme, which rewards streamers for connecting their viewers to VibePay. This includes referral rewards, sponsored giveaways and competitions.
Through the programme, VibePay will be targeting the biggest names in the streaming world to continue to grow its community, which includes award-winning 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.”
