To apply for the YouTube Partner Program (YPP) and monetize on YouTube, your channel needs 4,000 watch hours in the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. This program threshold allows us to significantly improve our ability to identify and prevent bad actors from harming the inspiring and original creators around the world who make their living on YouTube.

If you don't have enough views and watch hours for a review yet: keep making original content and growing your audience.

If you meet these requirements: you’ll also need to complete the following 4 steps to earn money from your videos:
  1. Read and agree to the YouTube Partner Program terms
  2. Get reviewed (once you reach the threshold)
What happens once I apply?
Once your channel reaches the program threshold, your channel activity is reviewed to make sure your content adheres to the YouTube requirements of the program. You can also check the status of any of these steps by going to the Monetization tab in Creator Studio.

We have teams carefully reviewing each application so this process may take up to several weeks. We are working to review applications as fast as humanly possible! Find out more in this article.

If you have questions about reviews, take a look at our recent post in Help Community.
