Receive an invitation for the (YPP) with shorts: - We're excited to announce a YPP (YouTube Partner Programme) eligibility threshold for Shorts creators. Starting in mid-January 2023, creators can become eligible for the YouTube Partner Programme by gaining 1,000 subscribers with 10 million valid public Shorts views in the last 90 days. Once in the Programme, partners get access to all of the features and benefits that the YouTube Partner Programme has to offer, including ads on long-form videos. Creators still have the option to qualify for the YouTube Partner Programme with 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 public watch hours in the last 12 months, however, any watch hours from Shorts views don't count towards that threshold.

After applying for the (YouTube Partner Programme), a channel will be reviewed to check whether it meets YouTube's channel monetization policies. These apply to anyone in or looking to apply to the YPP. To be eligible for monetization, channels must upload original content, whether created on or off YouTube.

Examples of ineligible videos include:
  • Non-original videos, like unedited clips from movies or TV shows
  • Unoriginal videos that have been edited and added to with no thought/care
  • Copying other people's content from YT or other platforms, with your own original content.
  • Reuploading other creators' content from YouTube with no original content added
Note: To monetize with ads, content must also meet our advertiser-friendly content guidelines.

Start earning from ads with Shorts

Ads revenue sharing for Shorts begins on 1 February 2023. There won't be changes to existing revenue-sharing models for long-form videos or Fan Funding products.

Starting from February 2023, new and existing creators in the YPP will be eligible for revenue sharing on shorts as a revenue source for YouTube creators. As a YPP partner, you'll need to review and accept the relevant agreement in order to share ad revenue on shorts.

If the revenue collected from the AdSense program is spent to reward short creators in the short film program, and if the short film program is to create a better platform for music shorts creators, then this may be a win-win situation. However, this situation is only acceptable if 45% of revenue collected from the AdSense program is spent to reward short creators in the short film program.

2. Monetise content with music

We're gradually rolling out Creator Music to US creators in the YouTube Partner Programme, then plan to expand to YouTube Partner Programme creators outside the US.

Creator music is a music library where creators can use songs without losing any money. The library is a new way for creators to use music and earn on youtube. Make sure you know that for short-form videos, you can use music from the sound library and earn revenue.

Use tracks from the music maker list

Create music lives in YouTube studio. You can search and preview your favorite tracks and see how they can be used in your video. For each track, you may see one of the following options:

Get a license: You need to pay (or no fee for some tracks) you don't pay for using music in your videos. Get 100% of the revenue share.

Divide the income: Pay no upfront fee and split video revenue with the track's rights holders.

Note: It can be that a track can be used in a video, but it can also be that it can't. Some tracks may be available for you to use, but not all of them. So it is not certain that you will get a content ID claim or a copyright claim.

More opportunities for creators

YouTube offers 10 ways to earn money on the channels. So we're updating the ways that you can earn. In order to make this update, we're also opening up the YouTube Partnership Program to even more creators. Starting in mid-January 2023, newly eligible creators will be able to join the YPP by either:
