What Is a YouTube Partnership?


Having a Partnership with YouTube is a way to make money from the videos you post online. There are two different ways to make money with YouTube, either from monetizing specific videos, or monetizing your entire account. The first option is best is you upload videos that you do not own. To earn money the second way, you must apply with a formal application from YouTube.

Individual Partnership Program

  • The individual Video Partnership program is available by invite only. If you have uploaded a specific video that receives thousands of views, you might get an email from YouTube inviting you to the program. The email goes to the address associated with your YouTube account, so make sure that it is valid. Some features available to the regular YouTube partnership program, are not available to members of the IVP program, such as the Insight Analytics Tool that provides summaries to help you analyze your audience.

YouTube Partnership Program

  • The YouTube partnership program works similarly to the IVP, except all videos uploaded to your accounts will earn money. Google AdSense ads will display on your videos, and the amount you'll earn is determined by how often they are clicked. every video you upload must be owned by you, or uploaded with the explicit permission of the owner. Normally, the application process only takes a few days, but it could take a couple of weeks to determine your eligibility.


  • To qualify for a YouTube partnership, you must live in the United States, Ireland, Mexico, Argentina, or one of the other fourteen eligible countries shown on the YouTube help page. All of your videos must conform to the YouTube Community Guidelines and Terms of Use. When applying for a partnership, YouTube looks at a variety of things, including the quality of your videos and the size of your audience. You will also not qualify if your videos are not viewed by thousands of people.


  • Your payments come from Google, in the form of a check that can be deposited, but not cashed directly. In your AdSense account, there is a tax information page that you need to fill out the before Google can send your first payment. the payments posts into your account approximately thirty to sixty days after the end of each month. YouTube does not guarantee that you'll earn anything through the partnership. Your income is based solely on the revenue generated from the ads.
