Your payments account holds important payments information such as your earnings, your transaction history, how you get paid, etc. In your payments account you can check your balance, add a payment method, and manage your payments settings. Your payments account is connected to your AdSense account via your payments profile.
AdSense for YouTube creators
If your AdSense account has the new AdSense for YouTube homepage, then you have a dedicated payments account for your YouTube earnings. If you earn money from both AdSense and YouTube, you have two separate payments accounts (one for each product). Your AdSense and YouTube payments accounts accrue earnings independently. For each payments account you:
- Choose a form of payment when your earnings reach the payment method selection threshold.
- Get paid when your earnings reach the payment threshold.
For more information, see: AdSense for YouTube.
