Have you ever wondered how gaming influencers make money from their video content on TikTok, Instagram and YouTube Channel?
As a gamer, chances are you have plenty of cute gaming accessories, a cozy desk setup, and an impressive library of games that you share with your community. Have they been asking where you bought them from? Now you can let them know easily with your Throne Storefront.

Posting about your passion for gaming on social media can be incredibly rewarding.
As you build up an audience they may start asking where you got your products from and you’ll find yourself answering the same question a thousand times and repeatedly searching for links which can be time-consuming.
Then there’s receiving gifts. Is it even safe? It is with a Throne Wishlist!
Making money from your content creation can be a challenge, especially for gamers. There are many different ways you can make good money, like sponsorship deals, being a Twitch Partner, joining the YouTube Partner Program, monthly subscriptions, and then there’s affiliate marketing.
That’s where Throne Storefront comes in.
In this article, we’ll explore what Throne is, how to set up your Storefront, and how to earn money from affiliate partnerships. First, let’s discuss what Throne Storefront is.
WHAT IS THRONE STOREFRONT?
Throne Storefront is a platform that enables content creators to monetize the content they post online quickly and completely FREE!
Throne started out as the Throne Wishlist, which you may have seen on your favorite Twitch Streamers About Page. Now Throne has a new look while continuing to provide a safe way to receive gifts from a large audience.
It’s gaining in popularity with over 200k creators now using it. Popular cozy gamers like Kennedy (Cozy K on YouTube) now have their own online boutiques, even myself!
Throne has partnerships with over 10k brands too making it easy to earn money without having to signup for individual brand partnerships on your own.
So, why should gaming influencers use a Throne Storefront?
5 REASONS TO USE A THRONE STOREFRONT
1. It’s FREE!
The Throne Storefront is 100% free for creators and there are no hidden fees for customers either. This is because the brands pay Throne to list their products which helps them utilize the power of influencers hassle-free.
It’s a win-win for brands and creators.
2. Recommend the Products You Love Ethically
Your followers already love your content and respect your recommendations. Trust like this is invaluable. Sometimes you want to share links to products even if you don’t earn a commission from them. Throne gives you the platform to do just that.
Keep all your links in one place with your Storefront to continue building trust with your followers.
3. More Than Just Affiliate Links
Not every affiliate link is the same. Some don’t even track! Being a part of multiple affiliate programs means you have to keep tabs on each of them individually, and your customers are bounced around which can leave them confused and put off purchasing. As someone who has been on both sides, I can tell you, it’s hard work.
All you need is one link with easier access to track your commission and for your audience to browse, checkout, and purchase your recommendations.
4. Earn Higher Commissions
Throne does all the negotiating for you! This means you can earn a higher commission than if you were to go to a brand directly. Some brands pay out up to 45% of the sale price.
Do you want to earn more money and save yourself time? Throne is the best platfrom for gaming content creators.
5. It’s Easy to Set Up
Throne Storefront is designed to be user-friendly and easy to set up. Creators can create their own store in just a few clicks and start recommending products right away. It takes care of everything, so you don’t have to worry about the details. Creators can focus on creating content, while Throne takes care of the rest.

HOW TO SET UP A THRONE STOREFRONT
Let’s get you set up and ready to start recommending the gaming accessories you love to use.
Step 1 – Your Details
Head on over to Throne and choose a username. Keep it simple and stay on brand.
You’ll be greeted by a login page where you can choose your preferred way to sign up.
Check your emails and click the link to verify your new login.
Refresh the original page you used to sign up on and you’ll now be able to choose your country.
On the next page enter your profile information – name, bio, and image.
Now you’ll be able to choose between 3 options:
Option 1 – Create a Throne Wishlist
Option 2 – Create a Throne Storefront
Option 3 – Continue as a fan
Choose option 2 for now, you’ll be able to add a wishlist later if you want one.
Step 2 – Homepage
Welcome to your Homepage!
It looks a bit empty right now but you’ll soon have lots of products ready to share in just a few more steps.
You’ll see at the top of the screen your shop link.
It will look like https://throne.com/hercozygaming/shop which is the link you’ll need to add to your Instagram, TikTok, and other social platforms for your followers.
Below that is a walkthrough guide. This will help you quickly complete the rest of the setup process.
You will also see an ‘Import From Amazon’ button on the right of your screen. If you are already in the Amazon Influencer Program you can quickly add every product you have on your Storefront straight into your Throne.
This will automatically create the exact same folders you already have on Amazon which will save you a lot of hassle.
Try adding an item to your Storefront.
Step 3 – Adding Products
A pop-up box will appear to add more information.
I recommend editing the title and adding a personalized description tailored to your experience with the product.
At the bottom of the box is a toggle for Affiliate. You don’t need to utilize this unless you have a discount code or coupon.
Congratulations you added your first product!
Step 4 – Your Brand
Now time to Customize your profile to make it cohesive with your own branding.
Under profile settings most of your information should already be input but if it hasn’t then go ahead and fill it in. Don’t forget to choose your color scheme.
You can check out how it looks by clicking ‘My Page’, otherwise click the Throne icon in the top left to head back to your homepage.
You may be prompted to add your Social Links next which will take you back to your profile page. Complete this before moving on so your followers know where else they can find you.
If you’ve been switched to Wishlist you can toggle back to Storefront from the drop-down menu at the top of the page at any time.
Step 5 – Get Verified
Now to get Verified! This is how you’ll get the blue checkmark on your public Throne profile and let your followers know you’re a trusted source.
Follow the steps on the screen to add your Throne Link to the social media platforms you added a moment ago.
It will take up to 10 minutes to get verified.
If you have any more questions about the setup process leave a comment and I’ll try to help you out. Otherwise, you can use Throne’s Support page with lots of handy tips.
Congratulations!! You should now have a fully working Throne Shopefront that looks similar to mine above.
HOW TO EARN COMMISSION FROM THRONE STOREFRONT
Your Throne Storefront can be monetized in 2 different ways.
1. If you have affiliate partnerships with brands you can add them to your Storefront as you would a website or social media link tree.
If one of those partnerships is Amazon you can import your Amazon Storefront, and retain all the attribution.
Alternatively, you can add your Amazon Affiliate Tag (see image below) in the settings, which will automatically associate all future Amazon links that you add with your tag so you don’t have to.
2. If you do not have partnerships with all products you recommend yet you can apply for the Storefront Affiliate Program under your settings.
Once approved, Throne will auto-monetize all product links you paste which do not have your own partnership associated yet. You will then earn commissions from these links (your balance will show up as “commissions” in your Throne dashboard).
Please be aware that option 2 is invite-only at this time as it’s currently in Beta. Keep an eye on your emails to find out when Throne Storefront Affiliate Program goes live to the public.
THRONE STOREFRONT MAKES AFFILIATE MARKETING EASY
Throne has made monetization for new creators as easy as snuggling up for an afternoon of playing your favorite video games.
Now you can create content more often and worry less about how you’re going to turn your passion into a full-time career. Throne makes the process of buying from your favorite gaming influencer that much quicker too!
I hope you now have your very own verified Throne Storefront and can’t wait to share your most loved products through your TikTok, Instagram and YouTube.
