YouTube Shorts Monetization: YouTube first started the trend of short videos (#Shorts) like TikTok. Now YouTube has also started the process of monetization of Shorts, that is, now advertisements can be placed on Shorts too, which will earn YouTubers even more. Although YouTube had already announced Shorts Fund for Shorts. But very few YouTubers got the benefit of this facility. But every YouTuber with more than 1000 subscribers will get the benefit of this new scheme of YouTube.
Some time ago, YouTube started the Creators Fund for shorts, however, very few creators benefited from this. But, now ads are coming in shorts. Beginning next year, The New York Times first reported, Shorts will join the YouTube Partner Program.
1,000 subscribers needed
If we talk about the eligibility criteria, then the creators need to have at least 1,000 subscribers and have to complete 4,000 watch hours in a year. Creators whose shorts have garnered 10 million views in the last 3 months can also apply for the YouTube Partner Program.
45-45-10 per cent stake
Earlier this year, TikTok also announced ad revenue sharing for creators. YouTube will keep 55 percent of the revenue accumulated from ads on Shorts on YouTube and 45 percent will be given to the creators. However, the opposite is true in the case of YouTube’s long videos. At the same time, about this 10 percent extra money, Amjad Hanif, a YouTube official, says that this 10 percent part will go to those people whose music shorts creators do in their shorts.
