YouTube Expands Partner Program Eligibility to Creators Worldwide

YouTube is making it easier for creators from around the world to join its YouTube Partner Program (YPP). This means that more channels will have access to features that help them make money, like Channel Memberships, Super Chats, Super Stickers, and selling merchandise.

YouTube announced this expansion in a video, saying that they are excited to offer this opportunity to creators in 33 additional countries. The rollout will start on August 29th and continue over the next month.

Before this change, YouTube had already made it easier for creators in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Taiwan, and South Korea to join the Partner Program. Now, the eligibility requirements have been reduced further. Channels only need to have 500 subscribers and 3,000 watch hours in the past year to be eligible for the program. Previously, they needed 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours in the past 12 months.

These lower eligibility requirements will now apply to more countries in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. To apply for the Partner Program, channels need to meet the following criteria:

  • 500 subscribers
  • 3 uploads in the past 90 days
  • No active community guideline strikes
  • 3,000 watch hours in the past year or 3 million Shorts views

Creators can check their eligibility and apply through YouTube Studio.

Once approved for the YPP, creators can access features like Channel Memberships, Super Chats, Super Stickers, and merchandise sales. When they reach 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours in the past 12 months, or 10 million Shorts views, they can also start earning money from ads.

It’s important to note that channels may lose their ability to make money if they don’t post new videos for six months or more.

In summary, YouTube is making it easier for creators in 33 more countries to join the Partner Program. With 500 subscribers, creators can apply for access to money-making features, and at 1,000 subscribers, they can start earning ad revenue. The rollout of the new eligibility requirements will continue over the next month.
