Streamlabs for Live Streaming

We offer the possibility to broadcast all donations from a fundraisers fundraising page to Streamlabs. Here it is possible to use this data in live streams, the fundraiser show  each individual donation as an "alert box" in any live stream set up through Streamlabs.

This is a guide for how fundraisers can connect to Streamlabs and set this up.

Connecting to your Streamlabs account

Go to your profile page.

From here you will need to connect to your Streamlabs account. Simply just press "Link your account to Streamlabs". If you don't see the button to connect to Streamlabs, it is because the integration havn't yet been set up for the site. In this case, please contact support@betternow.org.

Important: Your streamlabs account and your profile both needs to be created in the same email for the connection to work.

Afterwards, go to your fundraising page and press "edit fundraiser" 


And here check the checkbox to broadcast donations to your Streamlabs account.

How to set it up in Streamlabs

The information we send can be used in the alert box widget. We send a notification to streamlabs for each new donation. We send all new donation, and these will be shown with the text "%{donor_name} donated %{donation_amount} to %{charity_name}" that will be shown in the alert box.
To test the connection, simply launch the widget URL while you make a donation.
The design of the alert box is something that is set ande made within streamlabs and can only be edited in streamlabs.

You should edit for the 'donation' type event in order to edit the look of the alert box.
