Steps to getting paid

We're introducing a new beta that brings payment details to the Earn tab of the YouTube Studio mobile app. This beta gives eligible creators an easier way to understand how their earnings translate into payments. With this beta, you can view:
  • Your progress toward your next payment
  • Your payment history for the last 12 months including the date, amount paid, and a payment breakdown
Learn more in our forum post.

Wondering when your AdSense payment will arrive? Trying to figure out whether you'll be paid this month or next month? This guide explains our payment process.

When will I get paid with AdSense?

When you'll get your first payment

Complete the steps below to get your account set for your first AdSense payment.

Diagram of the steps to get paid.

1. Provide your tax information

Depending on your location, we may be required to collect tax-related information. For more information, see how to submit your tax information to Google.

Note: All monetizing creators on YouTube, regardless of their location in the world, are required to provide tax information.

2. Confirm your personal information

It’s important to confirm the accuracy of your payment name and address because we use this information to verify your identity and send you a Personal Identification Number (PIN). If you need to correct any information, follow these instructions to change your payment name or address.

Verify your identity

To continue to show ads and receive payments from AdSense, you need to verify your identity. This is to confirm the accuracy of your account information and protect you from fraud.

Verify your address

When your earnings reach the verification threshold, we mail a PIN to the payment address in your AdSense account. You must enter this PIN into your AdSense account before we can issue any payments. Your PIN will be sent by standard post and may take up to 2-3 weeks to arrive. For more information about PINs, see the Address (PIN) verification overview.

Note: If you have separate payments accounts for AdSense and YouTube, you verify your information when either of your payments accounts reaches the verification threshold. You only need to verify your information once.

3. Select your form of payment

When your earnings reach the payment method selection threshold, you can select your form of payment. Depending on your payment address, there may be several forms of payment available to you, including Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), wire transfer, etc. Learn how to set up your form of payment.

Note: If you have separate payments accounts for AdSense and YouTube, you select a form of payment for each payments account when it reaches the threshold.

4. Meet the payment threshold

If your current balance reaches the payment threshold by the end of the month, a 21 day payment processing period begins. After the processing period ends, we'll issue you a payment. Learn more about payment timelines.

Note: If you have separate payments accounts for AdSense and YouTube, each payments account needs to reach the payment threshold to be paid out.

For example, let's say the payment threshold for your account is $100. If your current balance reached $100 during January and you've completed all the steps above, then we would issue you a payment at the end of February.

If your current balance hasn’t yet reached the payment threshold, your finalized earnings will roll over to the next month and your balance will accrue until the threshold is met.
