What is YouTube's Partner Program?

YouTube Partner Program (YPP)

The YouTube Partner Program, also known as YPP, allows creators to monetize content on YouTube that uses their copyrighted work. As a Songtrust member, we offer you this service for free in addition to our worldwide publishing administration.

New Requirements As of February 20th, 2018**

There are certain requirements a channel must meet before we are able to place ads on and monetize a video. The most recent requirements are listed below:

  • The channel must have at least 4,000 watch hours in the previous 12 months
  • The channel must have a minimum of 1,000 subscribers

**Please note that the channel is required to meet both of these requirements at the same time before an ad can be placed on one or more of the channel's videos.
