Set up an AdSense account for payments

If your channel has been approved to join the YouTube Partner Program, you need to associate an approved AdSense account with your YouTube channel to earn money from your videos and get paid.

Before you start: You can only have one AdSense account under the same payee name per AdSense's Terms and Conditions. Duplicate AdSense accounts created through YouTube will not be approved and monetization will be disabled for the associated YouTube channel.

Use the troubleshooter below to link to the right AdSense account for your YouTube channel. You can use your existing AdSense account or create a new one if you don't have one.

You can monetize more than one YouTube channel with the same AdSense account. Just follow the instructions below to add the channel(s) to an approved AdSense account.

Do you want to create a new association or change your existing association?
