YouTube Lowers Requirements to Join YouTube Partner Program

YouTube is expanding its YouTube Partner Program (YPP). As of today, creators can apply for YPP much earlier than before.

The new threshold is 500 subscribers, 3 public uploads in the last 90 days, and either 3000 watch hours in the past year or 3M Shorts views in the last 90 days.

Once the new creators reach the lowered requirement they may become partners. The new partners will have access to fan funding features. The features include channel memberships, Super Chat, Super Stickers, Super Thanks.

Additionally, they will have the ability to promote their own products with YouTube.

This is great news for Youtubers who are yet to grow a huge audience. This new criteria will enable content creators to start earning much earlier on the channel.

However, the requirements to monetize videos normally have not changed. Creators on YouTube normally make money via ad revenue. This new lowered requirement only allows them earn via fan funding features.

The old YouTube requirement for ad revenue is 1000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time within the past 12 months. Unfortunately for small accounts, these criteria is still in place.

Unfortunately, the new rollout is not global. YouTube begins the new YouTube Partner Program tors in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Taiwan, and South Korea. The platform promises to introduce earlier access to YPP across all countries where YPP is available over time.

Expansion in YouTube Partner Program Affiliate

YouTube Shopping affiliate program is also facing an expansion. The affiliate program allows creators to feature products from other brands and creators in their content.

These creators will be eligible for competitive commission rates on the sales of products tagged in their videos and Shorts.

However, this program is open to YPP creators based in the USA. In addition, the YPP partners need to have over 20,000 subscribers to be eligible.
