YouTube partner earnings overview
The YouTube Partner Program 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.
Once you’ve associated an AdSense account with your Google account, you can be paid when:
- Your earnings reach your local payment threshold, and
- There are no holds on your account, and
- Monetization is not suspended for your channel, and
- You're in compliance with our policies.
Finalized earnings are not transferred to AdSense until about halfway through the following month (i.e. earnings accrued in June will be transferred to AdSense in mid-July).
Finalized YouTube earnings for the previous month are added to your AdSense account balance between the 10th and 14th of the month and paid out that month if your total balance has reached the payment threshold and if you have no payment holds.
For example, if you’re located in the United States and your balance exceeds $100 at the end of June, we'll send you a payment in July.
More information about specific payments can be found in the AdSense Help Center.
