Epic Games Expands The Support-A-Creator Program To All Titles In Its Store
Epic Games is expanding its Support-A-Creator program. Initially launched in October, the referral program offered content creators the opportunity to make money from Fortnite V-Buck sales.
This allowed qualified YouTubers and Twitch streamers to receive $5 when fans entered the creator's Epic tag while purchasing 10,000 V-Bucks.
Now, that program is expanding to other games on the newly released Epic Games Store. Just as with Fortnite, creators will need to have fans use their Epic tag during purchases in order to receive a cut of the profit.
This is facilitated with referral links that the creators can add to their Twitch or YouTube channel information.
Unlike the deal with Fortnite, creators will not be recieving a set $5. That's partially because creators won't be dealing with V-Buck sales. Instead, eligible creators will earn a percentage of a game's selling price. Developers are allowed to decide what share creators will recieve, but it's will be no less than 5% of the purchase price.
The program is open to almost every type of content creator — video makers, streamers, artists, cosplayers, and more. However, to be considered, content creators need to have at least 1,000 followers on any of the major social platforms.
Once both requirements are met, creators will have to fill out an affiliate agreement and agree to the Creator Code of Conduct.
There are, unfortunately, some restrictions. Creators located in countries disallowed by U.S. law, including China, Iran, and North Korea, are ineligible to participate in the program. This is also true of any creator whose content goes against the Affiliate Agreement or the Fortnite EULA.
ull details on how to apply for the Suppor-A-Creator Program can be found on the Epic Games website.
