Nexus is a service that allows you to create your own game store for your stream. Your community can buy games or DLC packs and you get a small part of the sale. Nexus has a wide variety of titles available especially DLC content.
How it Works
Nexus offers a digital marketplace where your viewers can buy games and downloadable content and nexus will send you a portion of the profit.
Nexus allows you to brand the digital game store with your own imagery, naming, and individualized experience. This allows you to bring your brand’s look and feel from Twitch.
Nexus gives you Creative Control, on their website they say:
Design your Nexus according to your brand in minutes. Choose a theme, upload your assets, and add your content.nexus.gg
Nexus gives you the store owner 50% of the profits from each sale. This means after the publisher and developer get their share, then the remainder of the sale is split between you and Nexus.
Payment is made when your store reaches a certain amount. At the time of writing it was $100 in revenue for Nexus to send a payment.
Pricing is set to a level comparable with Steam, Epic, Blizzard, and other games platforms. This means your community won’t pay any extra for you to monetize your brand.
How to use Nexus game store with your stream
