Ko-fi Stream Alerts are here! You can now display your Ko-fi link on your overlay and alert stream viewers when you receive a donation. It works with most broadcasting software that support 'browser' alerts.

Setting up Ko-fi Stream Alerts

To set up stream alerts head over to Stream Alerts settings then it's just 3 quick steps:

  1. Choose the message that displays when you receive a donation.
    Write your own alert text and/or add donation info like {amount} to show the value of the donation or {message} to display the messages left by the supporter.
  2. Copy the link to paste into your broadcasting app e.g. OBS
  3. Check it's working by sending a test alert
