YouTube Partner Program(YPP) - Requirements for Monetization
You were inspired by someone and created a Youtube channel. Now, you have successfully published your first video. Wow, it's a nightmare. Isn't it?
Now at this point, you are thinking, How Much Money Do You Get Per View on YouTube? You need to join the YouTube Partner Program (YPP) to start money on Youtube.
But how to get your channel monetized?
I will share all the necessary steps you can take to start making money from your channel.
Let's begin this challenging but fruitful journey!
Meet these Six Requirements to Get Paid by YouTube
There are six minimum eligibility requirements to join the YPP:
- Your channel must have at least 4,000 hours of watch time in the past 12 months.
- A minimum of 1,000 Youtube subscribers.
- You live in a country where Youtube Partner Program is available.
- Get a Google Adsense account linked to your YouTube channel.
- There are currently no active community guidelines strikes on your channel.
- Follow all the Youtube monetization policies.
Once you are accepted into Youtube Partner Program, you can earn money through multiple monetization features.
Note: After submitting the Youtube eligibility requirements application, your channel will be renewed by Youtube. It might take up to 30 days.
What Needs to Get Paid by Google Adsense
After your Youtube channel gets approved, there are several revenue thresholds to meet to get the first payment from Google Adsense.
#1: You must be a Part of YouTube Partner Program (YPP)
First, you need to be part of the YouTube Partner Program (which requires 4000 hours of public watch time and 1000 subscribers) to access the monetization features.
#2: Be at least 18 years old
If you want to receive payments from Google Adsense, you must be over 18 years of age. Why is this?
Because Google has some payment threshold, when you meet the first threshold by earning 10$, Google asks you for your account verification. This verification is going to be done with your National ID Card.
Google sends you Address verification (PIN) to your payment address on your ID Card. When you receive your PIN, you enter it in AdSense to verify your address.
#3: First Earn at least $100 to Get Your First Payment From YouTube
You will be paid after reaching the final payment threshold of 100$. Google AdSense has two payment methods:
- Via check
- Via Wire transfer to your bank account
I found the wire transfer method more secure and effective. You will receive direct payment to your bank account.
#4: Have Two-Factor Authentication Enabled
The Two-Factor Authentication feature help Youtuber manage their videos, see revenue data, and browse other analytics. Google announces 2FA as a mandatory step before being part of the YouTube Partner Program(YPP). Enable this option as soon as possible to protect your channel from getting hacked.
