YouTube will share ad revenue with Shorts creators by February 1st


11 January 2023

Starting February 1, 2023, YouTube will start sharing advertising revenue with the creators of YouTube Shorts, as long as the latter meet the conditions to participate in the service's new program.

Specifically, content creators will have to agree to the terms of the YouTube Partner Program by July 10, 2023, have more than 1000 subscribers and at least 10 million views of the YouTube Shorts they have published in a period longer than 90 days.

From there there are three different financial compensation packages from the service. The first is called the Watch Page Monetisation Module which enables creators to earn money from ads that appear on long-form videos and on the YouTube Premium service. The second is called the Shorts Monetisation Module and covers ads that appear between Shorts in the Shorts Feed and YouTube Premium, while the third is called the Commerce Product Addendum and includes Supers and their channel subscriptions.

YouTube recommends that all creators activate all three modules in order to earn as much money as possible. It should be noted, however, that only original Shorts will be able to bring money to the creator and not reposts or works based on other people's creations.
