Use the Merch store to grow your business

Streamlabs merch store allows streamers to customize different merchandise with personal logos and sell them while streaming.

Give Commands

Your audience can trigger responses from the Streamlabs chatbot by typing phrases like "!hello" for the bot to give out personalized replies.

Set Timers

Timers allow the bot to send out automated messages that post on a custom schedule set by you. This saves you from missing out on essential interactions with members and subscribers.

Allow Quotes

Allow viewers to directly quote things you've said earlier. This can be used later by using "!quote" to retrieve a random quote from the ones used.


Modules contain minigames like 8 ball pools that can be used along with the loyalty system. Some modules turn chat alerts on, causing the bot to post alert messages based on different user actions such as follow, like, or subscribe.

Queue Actions

Think of the Queue as an online remote. The person with the queue system manages who will be playing with the streamer next, playing music, or using it to keep track of viewers.

Utilize the Loyalty system

The loyalty system monitors how much time viewers spend in a chat and their total loyalty points. Loyalty points can earn rewards or be used to play minigames, Bet, or trigger commands.

Host Polls

Start interesting polls directly in the chat bar and ask viewers to vote on them. This can help you know your audience better and optimize your content based on their preferences.

Allow the audience to Bet

Viewers can bet on the outcome of events and be rewarded with more loyalty points if they win bets.
