YouTube Partner Programme overview
The YouTube Partner Programme lets creators monetise their content on YouTube. Creators can earn money from advertisements served on their videos and from YouTube Red subscribers watching their content. You can apply to join the YouTube Partner Programme from your account in Creator Studio.
Who is eligible to apply
All YouTube creators can apply to join as long as the Partner programme is available in your country. Once a channel reaches 10,000 public channel views, it will be reviewed to join the Partner programme. You can check your channel's view count at Creator Studio > Channel > Monetisation.
If you don’t have enough views, keep working to make original content and build your audience. You can get tips from top creators in the YouTube Creator Academy.
This view count threshold gives us enough information to determine the validity of a channel. It also allows us to confirm if a channel is following our community guidelines and advertiser policies.
What we look at when you apply
You can apply to join the YouTube Partner Programme and once your channel reaches 10,000 public channel views, your channel activity is reviewed to make sure that your content adheres to the YouTube Partner Programme policies, YouTube’s Terms of Service and our Community Guidelines.
We'll email you to let you know as soon as the process is complete. You can also check the status of your application at Creator Studio > Channel > Monetisation. The process may take up to several weeks.
