Stream Setup

Making Money

Artists earn money streaming performances on the site and earning tips from viewers in the form of AMPs. These AMPs can then be exchanged for US Dollars at the rate of 5 cents per AMP.  Setup your fanclub to generate recurring income through monthly fanclub subscriptions.

Use your personal affiliate link to earn money from your referred members, you earn $50 for each artist you refer and 20% on any AMP purchases. For details on the affiliate program, please see: https://volume.com/affiliates/ 

Modding Your Stage

Assign Moderators: Right click a username in chat to grant moderator access to users you trust.  Mods can help answer questions or silence trolls while you are focusing on your performance.

Silence: The “Silence” option will mute a user in your stage chat without kicking them out.

Kick/Ban: To remove a viewer’s messages and prevent them from coming back to your chat the “Kick/Ban” option.
