What's the difference between a Content Creator and a Peripheral Creator?Content Creators create digital content like videos, live streams, websites, or podcasts.
Examples include esports streamers, tech reviewers, video producers, musicians, writers, artists, and community builders.
Peripheral Creators design keyboards, accessories, mice, controllers, or DIY components related to high end peripherals.
Examples include keyboard and PCB designers, keycap artisans, cable makers, and firmware engineers.
As of early-release, both Creator types have access to the exact same features and functionality on the MK Creator Hub. We do, however, plan to add features targeted for specific Creator types in the future!

New features take time to develop, but we have some great ideas we're doing our best to implement as quickly as possible. Stay tuned!

How to add your Creator Code to URLs if your Creator Code was 'mycode':
Remember, if you link to your MKC Page or one of your keyboard pages, you don't need to add your code to the URL. Users clicking shop links on that page will automatically have your code loaded.
PayPal and ACH payments are made 15 days after the period has closed. There is a $100 payment minimum. If your balance is less than $100 for a payment period, your balance will carry over to the following period.
MK Credit is paid at a 1.5x rate and has a much lower payment minimum. For example, you can redeem $20 from your account balance for $30 in MK store credit!
MK requests bare minimum permissions to get publicly visible information about your channel. It is important to note that these permissions give MK no control over or access to your channel. With one exception for Twitch, where we request one additional permission to build leaderboards, the permissions requested to all platforms give us read-only-access to information that could be looked up by anyone clicking on your channel's public webpage.
This is easy to confirm: when you are prompted to login, the platform lists the permissions MK's API is requesting. If you still have questions or concerns, we're happy to help answer them.
