In order to expand the number of producers who can participate in its YouTube Partner Programme (YPP), YouTube stated that it is implementing new eligibility restrictions.
Channels will have earlier access to monetization tools including channel memberships, super chats, super stickers, and product sales thanks to the expansion.
What is the Partner Programme for YouTube’s “New Level”?
For creators in the US, UK, Canada, Taiwan, and South Korea, YouTube simplified the eligibility requirements for the partner program in June.
To qualify for YPP, channels simply require 500 subscribers and 3,000 watch hours over the previous year. 4,000 watch hours over the previous 12 months and 1,000 subscribers were the previous requirements.
Several more nations in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia are getting lower eligibility requirements thanks to YouTube.
Through YouTube Studio, you may determine your eligibility and apply
Creators who have been given the YPP seal of approval have access to Channel Memberships. As well as Super Chats, Super Stickers, and goods sales.
Aside from becoming eligible for ad income sharing, creators also need to reach 1,000 subscribers. And 4,000 watch hours, or 10 million views of Shorts in the previous 12 months.
There are no changes to the program advantages for partners who are already enrolled in YPP. It’s important to note that channels risk losing their ability to monetize if they go more than six months without publishing any new content.
Creators in 33 more nations can join the YPP with a lower entry requirement. Creators can apply for access to services that generate revenue, such as channel memberships and Super Chats. After obtaining 500 subscribers.
The threshold for earning from advertisements is 1,000 subscribers. Over the following month, the new YPP eligibility rules will continue to be implemented.
