Introducing a brand new way for Twitch.tv streamers, YouTubers, and users of other streaming platforms to receive donations and earn money: all streamers can now receive items from their viewers via WAX ExpressTrade! Your audience can send items from their WAX ExpressTrade inventory to yours, instantly and for free, and you can then sell or instant-sell those items on OPSkins and cashout for real life money like cash or crypto.

Unlike Paypal or other donation services, gifts sent on WAX are non-refundable, so you don't have to worry about chargebacks or refunds!

Receive real-time alerts that will pop up on your stream whenever someone sends you an item, like this:
