New ways to earn on YouTube

The YouTube Partner Program (YPP) is undergoing changes and growth. From mid-January 2023, YPP will allow more creators to join as partners and offer new revenue options through Shorts ads, including sharing ad revenues. 

More opportunity for more creators

YouTube currently has 10 earning options for creators. With this update, additional earning opportunities are added, and YPP eligibility requirements will be adjusted to include more creators. From mid-January 2023, new eligible creators can join YPP either by:

  1. Getting 1,000 subscribers with 4,000 valid public watch hours in the last 12 months, or
  2. Getting 1,000 subscribers with 10 million valid public Shorts views in the last 90 days.

Along with the above changes, YPP creators will have access to Fan Funding (Super Thanks, Super Chat, Super Stickers, and channel memberships) at a lower eligibility threshold. This new eligibility for Fan Funding will commence in 2023 and will apply to long-form video, live stream, and Shorts content. Further information will be available soon.

Become eligible for YPP with Shorts

As of mid-January 2023, creators can become eligible for YPP by having 1,000 subscribers and 10 million valid public Shorts views in the last 90 days. Upon joining YPP, partners will have access to all YPP features and benefits, including ads on long-form videos. Creators can still qualify for YPP with 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 public watch hours in the last 12 months, but Shorts views won't count towards that threshold.

After applying to YPP, a channel will undergo a review to ensure it complies with YouTube's channel monetization policies. These policies apply to all YPP members and applicants. To be eligible for monetization, channels must upload original content, whether made on or off YouTube.

Examples of ineligible videos include:

  • Non-original videos, like unedited clips from movies or TV shows
  • Reuploading other creators' content from YouTube or other platforms, with no original content added

Ad revenue with Shorts

Starting February 1, 2023, all YPP creators, new and existing, will be eligible for revenue sharing from ads displayed between Shorts in the Shorts Feed. As a YPP partner, you must review and sign the necessary agreement to receive ad revenue from Shorts. This offers another earning option on YouTube, besides other sources like ads on long-form videos, Fan Funding, merchandise, and more.

Monthly ad revenue will be combined and used to compensate Shorts creators and pay for music licensing fees. Creators will receive 45% of this revenue, regardless of music usage in their Shorts. Distribution of revenue to creators will be based on the number of Shorts views in each country.

More ways to earn on Shorts

Super Thanks is launching globally for Shorts in early 2023. Additionally, youtube will begin connecting brands with Shorts creators through YouTube BrandConnect.
