Set your monetization default
You can set your monetization default so that every web upload is automatically monetized or not.
- Sign in to your YouTube account.
- In the top right, select your account icon > Creator Studio.
- In the left menu, select Channel > Upload defaults.
- Check or uncheck the box next to "Monetization."
Note: If you've only monetized one video in the past and haven't selected monetization to be off by default, your default monetization setting is On.
