How to set up your Content Manager1. Link your channels
Once you’ve linked a channel, you can upload content to that channel, control the monetization of its videos, and set the branding.
To earn money from your videos and get paid, you need to associate an AdSense account with your Content Manager account. You can create an AdSense account or associate an existing one.
To change the default currency, go to Settings User Preferences and choose the currency unit you want to use. This doesn’t change the payout currency set in your Google AdSense account. If you're paid in the same currency, the amount displayed here may still differ from the final payment because of different exchange rates.
You can also choose a default campaign action in Settings Campaigns. For Content ID claims, you can choose to feature your official videos on fan uploads or do nothing. Custom campaigns can override this setting.
You can begin inviting other users to the Content Manager account so they start managing its content.
When YouTube creates the Content Manager, one or more users serve as the administrator for the account. In addition to inviting users, administrators can also create user roles that specify which features and restrictions apply to different types of users.
