Sub Gifting FAQ

What is Sub Gifting?
Sub gifting (or subscription gifting) allows anyone to purchase a channel subscription on behalf of another user in order to gift them the benefits of a subscriber.

How do I gift a subscription?
1. To buy a gift sub, you'll need to be on a Partnered Mixer channel with a SUB button.
2. Click the SUB button to open the purchasing option menu.


3. On the purchasing menu you'll find several option - select "GIFT A SUB". 


4. On the following screen you'll be prompted to pick a user to gift the subscription to. Select the desired user and click "GIFT NOW". 

If you are using anything other than a PC, only names of people who are currently in chat, not already an active subscriber, and who are not in lurk mode should show in the search results.


5. From here you'll be prompted to enter your Microsoft account payment details. Follow the prompts to complete your purchase!

Why can’t I gift a subscription to this user on
