If you're a digital creator looking to host and/or sell content via itch.io, check out the Creator FAQ instead.
itch.io was made to give game developers a marketplace where they get to control how their content is sold. Check out this blog post: Introducing itch.io.
Then we'd love to welcome you on itch.io, where you can upload both paid and free content, design a page for it, keep track of views, downloads and purchases, and run your own sales and bundles however you want.
Here’s a few tips to discover cool new content on itch.io:
Sure! If you have an itch.io account, you can add any page to a collection, which you can then choose to show on your profile.
To add a page to a collection, simply click the ‘Add to collection’ button on the page itself. You can even write some words about it, which is displayed next to the page’s thumbnail when viewing the collection.
The Edit collection button lets you control the visibility of the collection, whether it’s shown on your profile or not, pick the layout (grid or list), and add a description. Additionally, you can add contributors to a collection to curate in groups!
With an itch.io account, you can follow any creator, and it'll appear in your feed. There you'll find things like new projects, updates, new uploads, ratings, etc.
If you don’t know who to follow, take a look at the Featured games feed — it’s guaranteed to have some interesting stuff!
You can recover all purchases you've made with a given e-mail by filling the Recover purchases form on our support page.
Registering for itch.io with an e-mail already used for purchase will automatically link all your previous purchases with your new account as soon as you verify the email address on the account.
Every itch.io page has a Report link down at the bottom. It opens a form that sends a message directly to the itch.io admin team, which will take appropriate action.
Some games on itch.io accept Bitcoin as a form of payment. It is processed via Stripe and converted immediately to USD.
The 10-minute delay allows Stripe to guarantee the BTC-USD exchange rate. When it’s elapsed, the form resets itself and displays a new amount, bitcoin URI, and QR code.
Stripe takes a lower fee on Bitcoin transactions, compared to credit card transactions, so it’s a good way to support your favorite creators!
