Do you want to link your Discord to TikTok?
Linking a website in your bio is important as you can drive free traffic to it.
However, you need to include a compelling call-to-action in the caption of your posts or on your stories.
Otherwise, people wouldn’t click on the link in your bio.
Social media platforms like TikTok are an increasingly popular way for businesses and individuals to promote their links.
If you want to promote your Discord server, TikTok can be a great platform to do so.
However, not many people know how to add a clickable link in their TikTok bio.
This is because links won’t be clickable if you add it to the bio section of your profile.
If that’s the case, how do you add a clickable link?
In this guide, you’ll learn how to link your Discord to TikTok in 4 easy steps.
How to Link Your Discord to TikTok
To link your Discord to TikTok, you need to copy your Discord link, switch to a business account on TikTok, edit your TikTok profile, and paste your Discord link on “Add your website”.
A lot of people miss the second step—switching to a business account on TikTok.
If you don’t switch to a business account on TikTok, you won’t be able to add a clickable Discord link in your bio.
This is because the TikTok bio does not support website links.
If you were to add a link to your TikTok bio, it will not be converted into a clickable URL.
This is similar to Instagram where you can only add a link in the “website” section.
However, this is unlike Twitter because you’re able to add clickable links in your Twitter bio.
In a nutshell, you can only add a clickable link to your TikTok bio if you have a business account.
So, just a heads up—make sure that you don’t miss out on the second step.
Below is a step-by-step guide on how you can link your Discord to TikTok, along with an FAQ after the guide.
- Copy your Discord link
- Switch to a business account on TikTok
- Edit your TikTok profile & tap on “Add your website”
- Paste your Discord link and save your profile
Step #1: Copy your Discord link
Open Discord > Discord server > Menu > Settings > Advanced settings > Never > Copy Share Link.
Firstly, open the Discord app on your mobile device.
If you haven’t installed Discord on your mobile device, be sure to install it from the App Store or Google Play Store first.
You can follow this guide using the desktop version of Discord and TikTok, but it’s best to use the app instead.
After you opened Discord, navigate to the Discord server that you want to share.
Once you’re on the Discord server, tap on the menu on the top-left of your screen.
A navigation menu will open, and you’ll see a big invite button under the server’s name.
Tap on the invite button.
Under the search bar, you’ll see a “Copy Share Link”.
Before you tap on “Copy Share Link”, tap on the Settings icon of it.
Then, change the advanced settings from “1 day” to “Never”.
If you don’t do this, the Discord link will expire after a day, which means that people who click on the link after 24 hours will not be able to join your Discord server.
Lastly, close the link settings, and tap on “Copy Share Link”.
Congrats—you’ve successfully copied the Discord server’s link and configured it to never expire.
Step #2: Switch to a business account on TikTok
Open TikTok > your profile > triple-dots icon > manage account > switch to Pro account > business > select a category.
Now that you’ve copied the Discord server’s link, you need to add it to your TikTok bio.
But before you can do that, you need to switch to a business account on TikTok.
This is because any links that you add directly to your TikTok bio will not be clickable.
You can only add clickable links if you switch your account to a business one.
To switch your account to a business one, open the TikTok app.
Then, navigate to your profile and tap on the triple-dots icon on the top-right of your screen.
This will open the privacy and settings page.
On the privacy and settings page, tap on “Manage Account”.
Once you’re on the “Manage Account” page, you’ll see an option to switch to a Pro account.
Tap on “Switch to pro account”, then tap on “Business”.
Next, select the category that fits your account the most.
Lastly, tap on “Next” to switch your account to a business profile.
However, it’s important to note that you will not be able to use mainstream songs after switching to a business profile.
So before you switch to a business profile, make sure to consider it first.
If you’ve been using mainstream songs on TikTok in the majority of your videos, switching to a business account might not be a good idea.
In the next step, you’ll learn how to add the Discord link to TikTok as a website.
Step #3: Edit your TikTok profile & tap on “Add your website”
Go to your TikTok profile > Edit profile > Add your website.
Now that you’ve switched your account to a business profile, you’ll be able to add a clickable link.
Firstly, go to your TikTok profile and tap on “Edit Profile”.
There’ll be many options that you can edit—your name, username, bio, and so on.
The option that you want to be selecting is the “Add your website” option.
As your account is a business profile, the “Add your website” option will be available to you.
If you don’t have a business profile, you won’t be able to see this option.
Hence, you need to make sure that you’ve switched your account to a business profile from the second step.
Otherwise, you won’t be able to add a clickable link.
Tap on “Add your website” to add your Discord link to your TikTok profile.
Step #4: Paste your Discord link and save your profile
Paste the Discord link > Save.
After you’ve tapped on the “Add your website” option, you’ll see a field where can add a website.
Tap on the field and paste the Discord link that you’ve copied from the first step.
After you’ve pasted the Discord link, you’ll see a pop-up message that says, “TikTok pasted from Discord”.
This message indicates that you’ve successfully pasted a link from Discord.
Tap on “Save” on the top-right corner of your screen to save the link, then go back to your TikTok profile.
On your TikTok profile, you’ll see the Discord link under your bio.
Congrats—you’ve successfully added a Discord link to TikTok.
Now, whenever someone taps on the link, they’ll be invited to the Discord server.
How do I get a permanent invitation link for Discord?
To get a permanent invitation link for Discord, you need to set the advanced settings for the link to never expire.
In order to do that, you need to head on over to your Discord server.
Then, tap on the menu icon on the top-left corner of your screen.
Next, tap on the invite button, and tap on the settings icon.
Under “Advanced Settings”, change the “Expire After” option to “Never”, and close the page.
Lastly, tap on “Copy Share Link” to copy the link.

How do copy a Discord server link on mobile?
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how you can copy a Discord server link on mobile:
- Open Discord.
- Go to the Discord server.
- Tap on the menu icon on the top-left corner of your screen.
- Under the server name, tap on “Invite”.
- Tap on “Copy Share Link” to copy the Discord server’s link.

Why can’t I add a link to my TikTok bio?
You can’t add a link to your TikTok bio because your account is a personal one.
In order to add a link to your TikTok bio, you need to switch to a business account.
After switching to a business account, you’ll have the “Add your website” option where you can add a link to your bio.
The option is not available for personal accounts.
Adding a website to your TikTok bio is crucial if you want to drive traffic to another place.
If you own a business (e.g. a merchandise store), adding its link to your TikTok bio has the potential to drive sales.
However, most social media platforms only allow you to add a single link to your profile.
If you want to add more than one link, you can use an all-in-one link tool like Linktree or AllMyLinks.
That being said, you need to have some sort of viewership and a decent number of followers first in order to get people to click on the link in your bio.
