  4. A successful login will display a 7 digit Store ID number. Return to Twitch then copy and paste this number into your extensions configuration panel and click connect. Important, if you haven’t created any products yet head over to Teespring and click ‘start designing’ to create your merchandise.
  5. From the ‘My extensions’ section of your creator dashboard click ‘Activate’ on the Teespring Merch extension to display the panel on your channel.
