What do I do if my viewers cannot send me tips?

If you are online and broadcasting, your viewers should be able to send Sponsored Tips. Normally, users will see one of the following messages if loots is not active:

  • "[Streamer Name] is taking a tipping break" - This means that the Tip Jar is either paused or drained.
  • "Wow! A temporary tipping limit is reached for [Streamer Name]" - This means the tipping limit has been met and tipping is temporarily paused.
  • "A connection error occured. [Streamer] has to reconfigure the browser source to activate tipping." - The broadcaster needs to confirm that overlay elements are configured properly. Usually, refreshing the source link solves this issue.
  • "Oops, [Streamer Name] needs to do some more configuration to activate tipping" - Please check the setup guide
  • "[Streamer Name] is not live at the moment" - the system is not detecting the broadcaster is currently live.

If your viewers are having trouble sending tips, you can try the following:

  • Check if any server issues were reported via Twitter or Discord
  • Check Live > Tips > Status and ensure the following message is shown: Perfect! All systems running and you're live
  • Ensure you are not paused. Try Pause and Unpause tipping via your Live-page.
  • Refresh your Live-page and have your viewers refresh your tip page. You can do this by pressing “F5” on most browsers.

If none of the above resolve your issue, you can swing by the Support Discord or shoot our support team an email at support@loots.com.
