Youtubers generally get paid through the YouTube Partner Program (YPP), which allows them to monetize their content through ads, channel memberships, Super Chat, and merchandise shelf, among other features. The payment schedule for Youtubers depends on the earnings and the payment threshold set by YouTube.
As of my last update in September 2021, Youtubers are typically paid once a month, as long as they have reached the payment threshold, which is $100 for most countries. Once a Youtuber’s earnings exceed this threshold, they will be eligible for payment. Payments are usually made around the 21st of each month, but the actual date may vary slightly.
It’s important to note that YouTube’s policies and payment schedules might have changed since my last update, so it’s best to refer to YouTube’s official documentation or the YouTube Partner Program terms for the most up-to-date information.
As of my last update in September 2021, to be eligible for monetization on YouTube through the YouTube Partner Program (YPP), channels need to meet the following criteria:
1,000 Subscribers: Your channel must have at least 1,000 subscribers.
4,000 Watch Hours: Within the past 12 months, your videos must have accumulated at least 4,000 watch hours.
Comply with YouTube’s Policies: Your channel must adhere to YouTube’s Community Guidelines and Terms of Service. It should not have any severe or repeated violations.
Adherence to YPP Policies: You must also comply with YouTube Partner Program policies, which include guidelines about content, copyright, and advertiser-friendly content.
Once your channel meets these requirements, you can apply to join the YouTube Partner Program. Upon acceptance, you can enable monetization features like ads on your videos, channel memberships, Super Chat, and merchandise shelf, among others.
Keep in mind that YouTube’s policies and requirements might have changed since my last update in 2021. Therefore, it’s essential to check YouTube’s official guidelines or the YouTube Help Center for the most current and accurate information on eligibility and requirements for monetization.
