Shortly after TwitchCon we began introducing new features that make it easier for you to show love to your favorite streamers with Bits and Subs. Today, we’re happy to announce the next: starting now, you’ll be able to buy Bits with PayPal in the US and the EU (see the full list of countries in the FAQ below).
We think this one will open the door to Bits for many of you who, until now, weren’t able to participate in glorious Cheer hype moments like these…
Where will I see the option to buy Bits with PayPal?

A. Yes, Bits still provides chargeback protection for the streamer whether they were purchased via PayPal or another method.
