Change 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.

When a person subscribes to your paid channel, they choose a currently active offer available in their country. The selected offer determines the terms of the subscription: how much it costs, how long it lasts, and whether YouTube displays advertisements. The subscriber keeps these terms for as long as he or she remains a subscriber. You can’t change the terms of an offer. If you want to raise or lower the subscription price for a channel, you need to create a new offer with the new terms.

To change the subscription terms for future subscribers, you disable or delete the existing offer then create a new offer with the new terms.

Disabling an offer has no impact on existing subscribers. Deleting an offer cancels existing subscriptions to that offer.

To change the subscription terms for a channel:

Note that it can take a few minutes for changes to be reflected throughout the system.

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

    The page shows the currently active and disabled offers.

  2. In the list of active offers, identify the Country and Billing period for which you want to change the price or advertising policy.

    You can have up to two active offers for each country, one Monthly offer and one Yearly offer. You can’t have more than one active 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.

  3. Click the Disable button to make the offer inactive, or the Delete button to remove the offer entirely.

  4. Create a new offer for the Country and Billing period of the newly inactive offer.
