How to become a Discord partner?

The instant messaging and VoIP service, Discord, which began its journey more than five years back, has now become a mainstream tool among online streamers, especially gamers — owing to the platform’s early push with Nitro, which was later discontinued.

Like other platforms that directly or indirectly support online streaming, Discord also offers content creators using the service a partnership, which allows them to monetise the content and leverage their reach among the audience.

If you’ve been exploring Discord for a while, are a regular contributor and have garnered a loyal following on the platform, it would make sense to monetise the time you’re investing on Discord so that it doesn’t look all fruitless at the end of it all.

While applying for Discord partnership is as simple as it gets, before we tell you how to do that, first you need to know what it takes to become a Discord partner. That’s right! Discord has certain requirements that you need to fulfil in order to become a partner.

Who is eligible to become a Discord partner?

First of all, you need to be at least 16 years old to apply as a partner on Discord.

Moving on, there are two separate categories of applicants for Discord partners — creators and communities. We’ve mentioned the minimum requirements for content creators from specific streaming platforms followed by communities from social networks to apply as a partner on Discord.

Being a partner on any other of the platforms mentioned above or otherwise doesn’t guarantee you a spot as a Discord partner. Also, if you haven’t been actively engaging with your community on Discord, chances are your application will be rejected.

Discord is also open to partnership with NGOs. They need to provide their EIN in the application. If you’re running a popular community on a non-forum based site or on your own server, you can also apply for Discord partnership.

Mentioned below is a statistic from Discord’s partner site linked below, which will give you a rough idea of what they expect from a partner.

While the eligibility for Discord partnership is universal, meeting the requirements doesn’t guarantee you a spot as a Discord partner. The acceptance of applications depends a lot on how enthusiastically you engage with your audience on Discord and the quality of your content.

How to apply for Discord partnership?

As mentioned above, applying for a Discord partnership is quite simple given that you meet all of the requirements above.

Go to discord.com/partners and click on the Apply Now button at the top of the page, as shown in the screenshot below.

Then follow the on-screen instructions, fill all the required information and submit your application. The application review can take anywhere from a week to three, depending on the volume of partnership requests received by Discord.

Once Discord accepts your application and you’re a Discord partner, it’ll take up to a week for your VIP server to get activated.

If you’ve been accepted as a Discord partner, we also recommend that you go through the platform’s code of conduct, which includes guidelines related to behaviour and engagement with readers, NSFW content in a partnered server, content creation, inactivity and repurposed servers, among other things.
