Ever wondered how YouTube is going to send you your money?
In this article, we’re going to briefly talk about How YouTube is going to send you your money as a Creator and the steps you need to take to receive your first YouTube Payment.
YouTube is the best platform that’ll pay you for your content and also help you to build up your online brand.
According to Statistics, It’s the second largest search engine in the world, second to Google Search.
How does YouTube Send your Money?
Google is the Tech Giant that currently owns YouTube and if you have a website, you’d probably be familiar with Google AdSense which is Google’s official Monetization Platform.
This simply means that the money you make on YouTube will be sent to you via your Google AdSense account.
Steps to get your First YouTube Payment
For you to receive the money that you’ve worked so hard to earn on YouTube, there are steps that you’ll need to take and that’s what I’ll list for you below:
- Provide your Tax Information
- Confirm your Personal Information
- Choose Payment Method
- Earn up to the Payment Threshold
Provide your Tax Information
Every YouTube Creator who wants to make money from their videos using AdSense is required to fill in their Tax Information as soon as their AdSense account is created.
Regardless of your location in the world, so long as you’re a creator, you’ll be required to fill in your Tax Info so that you can receive your money.
Confirm your info
For Google AdSense to confirm your Personal Information, they’ll need to send you a personal identification number (PIN) via Mail to the Mailing Address you entered when setting up your AdSense account.
You should enter your Correct information when signing up for AdSense to avoid not receiving your PIN which may lead to the shutdown of your account.
Google AdSense PINs take anywhere from 2 – 3 Weeks to be delivered via Standard Post, the PIN must be entered into your AdSense account so that they’ll send your money.
Choose Payment Method
When you’ve earned up to the Payment Method Selection Threshold, you’ll get access to choose your preferred payment method.
This is simply how you want to receive your earnings and there are about 2 forms of payment supported by AdSense, they include;
- Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
- Electronic Funds Transfer via Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA)
- Wire Transfer.
Earn up to the Payment Threshold
Since you’ve set up a payment method for your account, all that remains is for your YouTube Content to make up to $100 so that you can receive your money.
If you’ve made $150 by the end of July, a payment processing period is set to begin and it usually lasts for 21 days or more, once the processing stage is completed, you will receive your money by the end of August.
How Many Views will it take to Make $100 on YouTube?
Well, It generally depends on your niche’s RPM as well as whether your audience skips your ads.
On average, YouTube Creators get $5 RPM, this Simply means that for every 1000 views on their videos, they’ll make $5, and if that is the case, we’ll use a simple calculation to determine how many views you need.
For every 1000 views, you make => $5 How many views will make you => $100 Let's take the number of views you need to make $100 to be "Y"... The equation will be Y = ($100 × 1000) ÷ $5
Therefore, the number of views that you need to make $100 on average is 20,000 views (This is of course on your Monetized YouTube Videos).
I hope that after reading this article, you can understand how YouTube will send your Money as well as the steps to get your first YouTube Payment.
