Commerce and Content Extension Policy Updates

Yesterday we published changes to our Extensions Guidelines and Policies regarding commerce and content in Extensions.

This update shows that the Commerce Beta Program (previously mentioned in section 5.2) has concluded and aims to provide clarity as to how commerce in Extensions will be reviewed moving forward. Please see section 5.2 for these updates and the newly added section 5.4 in regards to donations.

You will also find two new policies under the Content section. These new policies do not change what is or is not allowed, but rather surfaces more specific information that may not have been clearly defined in the other policies. See section 4.6.3 regarding off-site links and section 4.9 regarding product branding.

@jbulava I was just reviewing the commerce policy for extensions, specifically 5.2–“Extensions may not allow items to be exchanged for money or other commerce instruments.” How is it possible for Spring to offer a “sell in twitch service” if items in exchange for money is not allowed?
With this in mind, is it possible for an extension to provide product shopping cart functionality with credit card checkout? Basically allowing streamers to sell their merch in-stream.

They are likely part of the old closed merch/amazon pay beta(s) that seem to have existed at one point.

Since DBH/Teespring also have this permission. or they have some other agreement with Twitch
