YouTube Partner Program overview
The YouTube Partner Program (YPP) lets creators monetize 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 Program from your account in Creator Studio.
How to apply for the program
Who is eligible to apply
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.
How to apply
What's reviewed when you apply
- If you're approved: You'll start earning money on YouTube right away if you've already chosen the videos you want to monetize.
- If you're not approved: If your channel isn't approved to join the program, it's likely because we cannot determine whether your channel's activity complies with the YouTube Partner Program policies and Community Guidelines.
You can keep uploading original content and building your audience on YouTube even if you're not in the YouTube Partner Program—and you can re-apply again in 30 days.
If your YPP participation is suspended
If it's determined that your channel is no longer eligible for monetization, your channel will lose access to all monetization tools and features associated with the YouTube Partner Program. Learn more about what to do if monetization is disabled for your channel.
