Updated YouTube Partner Program Application in Studio 0 Recommended Answers 170 Replies 1737 Upvotes

Starting today you’ll see a new, redesigned application page for the YouTube Partner Program - we’ve simplified the process to make it clear when you’re eligible and fixed a bug to only show public watch hours

The eligibility requirements and review process for YPP are not changing – you still need 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 public watch hours to apply and once you apply, you should hear back in ~30 days. For more info on the review process, check out this post. 

Updates to the YouTube Partner Program application page: 

  • More accurate public watch time data: The redesigned application page shows your progress towards YPP thresholds, including your channel’s public watch hours and subscriber count. With this update, it may look like your watch hours decreased as we showed total watch hours (public, private, and unlisted) on the old page in Creator Studio Classic due to a technical issue. Since we only consider public watch hours towards YPP eligibility, we’ve fixed this issue and updated the YouTube Studio sign-up page to show you the correct number. 

  • Notification when you’re eligible: You can now choose to be proactively notified by email when you reach the YPP eligibility threshold – 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 public watch hours. This way, you don’t need to keep checking back on the page if you don’t want to! 

  • Streamlined YPP application process: Once you’ve reached the threshold, you’ll be automatically directed to the YPP application where you’ll be asked to agree to YPP terms and set up AdSense. After submitting your application, you should hear back ~30 days. Once approved, you’ll be prompted to set up your ad format preferences for monetization. 



FAQs:

Q: What if I previously applied but haven’t hit the threshold?
Nothing is changing, your application will be saved! You will see the Grow with YouTube page until you hit the threshold, then once you reach 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 public watch hours, you can continue with your application as normal. If you finished the application, we’ll automatically send it for review once you reach the threshold!

Q: What if I’ve never applied?
You can check your eligibility on the monetization sign up page or ask to be notified by email when you reach the threshold. Once you hit the threshold, you can proceed with the application and should hear back within ~30 days.

Q: How can I check my YPP eligibility?
You can check your eligibility for YPP on the monetization sign up page in Studio to see how close you are to reaching 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 public watch hours - you can also choose to be notified by email when you’ve hit the threshold. 

Q: How long will it take for my YPP application to be reviewed?
Once you’ve reached the threshold, you’ll be able to continue with the YPP application and you should hear back within ~30 days. You can learn more about the review process here

We hope these changes will ease some of the confusion around the YouTube Partner Program application and review but let us know your questions or feedback in the comments below.

What a pack of lies and more PR speeches.  I'll be 18 bloody months waiting on Nov 9th  yet you auto-monetize all the false and misleading click bait, p*rn, nudity, sex, child and animal abuse and more 24/7/365 all while every honest creators get ignored. 
You keep vomiting out the same lies each time and not a single thing gets done. See this is why the FTC is now stepping in and fining YouTube and why each of your criminality you fund, sponsor and promote  should've been terminated years ago and I sincercley hope the FTC fines every one of your favourites $42,000 per video.

I think it is necessary. Everyone had too many question marks in their minds. I hope this will be more beneficial for all of us. I've been waiting 4 months to review. It went back to 13 viewing hours without 36,000 views. Do not hide or delete your videos.

My YPP application was just denied for "sexual contents". The shocking fact is that my channel is an educational channel (family channel) and I`ve never ever discussed any sexual topics or presented any sexual pictures or contents. I am very shocked and disappointed as this is a clear mistake during the review/evaluation of my channel, but the sad fact is that I am unable to find anyone who can help me resolve this issue.
