Create channel subscription offers

As of September 19, 2017, you can no longer create paid content on YouTube. All your existing paid channels or videos will continue to show until January 1, 2018, and then they'll be made private. Individual videos purchased (not rented) will be accessible to purchasers until January 1, 2023 per purchase terms. Learn more about your options for managing paid content.

To subscribe to a paid channel, a user chooses an offer. The offer determines the terms of the subscription: how much it costs, how frequently the user is charged, and which country it is available in. You must define one or more offers before users can subscribe to your paid channel.

To create an offer:

  1. Go to the Paid Subscriptions page for the channel.

    If you haven’t yet enabled paid content or configured the channel as a paid channel, you’ll need to complete those actions first.

  2. Click Create new offer.

  3. Select the Country in which this offer is valid.

    To make a similar offer available in multiple countries, you must create the offer separately for each country.

  4. Select the Billing frequency for the offer.

    You can charge users Monthly or Yearly.

    1. Set the Suggested retail price for the offer.

      The subscription price will be determined based on the suggested retail price. Google reserves the right to set the retail price. All new subscribers will receive a 14-day free trial.

      The available prices are in the currency of the selected country. The retail price must meet the requirements for that country.

  5. Decide whether to display advertisements to your subscribers.

    By default, YouTube does not display any advertisements with the videos to paying subscribers. If you want to include advertisements, deselect the check box in the Ads section.

  6. Click Create offer.

    The new offer appears as an active offer on the Paid Subscriptions page.

  7. Repeat steps 2 through 7 to create additional offers for this channel.

    You can create up to two offers for each country, one Monthly offer and one Yearly offer. For example, you might create a Yearly offer that provides a discount over the Monthly price. You can’t create more than one offer for the same country and billing period. If you create monthly and yearly offers for the same country, the two offers must have the same advertisement policy.

Note that you can’t change the terms of an offer once you have created it. If you want to raise or lower the subscription price for a channel, you need to disable the existing offer and create a new one with the new terms.
