More ways to get rewarded

It’s time to celebrate! Over the next few months, we’re expanding the benefits of the YouTube Partner Program (YPP) so you can express your creativity in the formats that work for you and your community - all while getting rewarded for it.

Ads Revenue Sharing on Shorts - a new way to make money
Great news! In early 2023, you can start to earn from ads that are viewed in the Shorts Feed, based on your Shorts views - the more views you have, the more money you make. This will give creators like you a more sustainable option to grow and earn with short-form content as the Shorts ecosystem continues to grow. Just keep creating great videos and we’ll take care of the rest. Look out for more details as we close out the Shorts Fund next year.

Super Thanks for Shorts - a new way to engage with your community
Your fans are always looking for more ways to show you love and appreciation, so early next year we’re bringing Super Thanks to Shorts! You’ll be able to spot and interact with your top fans through highlighted, colorful Super Thanks comments. It’s currently in testing on Shorts, but make sure to turn on Super Thanks in YouTube Studio so you don’t miss out when it officially launches.

To make all of this possible, creators who are currently in YPP will need to agree to updated program terms when they’re available in early 2023. We’ll share more details in the coming months.

These updates are just the beginning. As you continue creating in the formats you love, we’ll keep working to make the tools you need to build a thriving channel on YouTube.

Review Shorts Feed terms

Shorts Monetization Module

This Shorts Monetization module (this “Module”) is made under and incorporated into the terms under which you participate in the YouTube Partner Program (the “Terms”), and is effective February 1, 2023 or the date you agree to this Module (whichever is later). Please read this Module carefully. Capitalized words used but not defined in this Module will have the meaning given to them in the Terms.


This Module applies to Shorts. “Short(s)” means content made available through the Service in the feed-based video player interface currently known as “YouTube Shorts” (the “Shorts Player”). The “Shorts Feed” describes the video feed section of the Shorts Player that contains Shorts and which may be interspersed with ads and other recommended content, but for clarity does not include:

parts of the Shorts Player that display multiple Shorts simultaneously (including still images) for purposes other than viewing an individual Short (e.g. for search, browsing or navigation); or any ads shown upon opening of the Shorts Feed before a Short is viewed.

Shorts Ads Revenues.

YouTube will pay you 45% of Shorts Ad Revenues. “Shorts Ad Revenues” means:
Pooled Ad Revenues. The portion of the Creator Shorts Pool (as described below) that is attributed to the views of your Shorts Content as a percentage of the total views of all content allocated to the Creator Shorts Pool (“Pooled Ad Revenues”), where:

“Creator Shorts Pool” means the portion of Gross Pool Ad Revenues, calculated on a country-by-country basis, that is attributed to: (A) the total views of all Shorts uploaded by a monetizing partner that include no Music Content; plus (B) the fractional views of all Shorts uploaded by a monetizing partner that include some but are not solely made up of Music Content (as described in Section 4 below); together as a percentage of the total views of all Shorts;

“Gross Pool Ad Revenues” means Net Revenues from ads displayed in the Shorts Feed that are not directly connected to an individual Short; and

“Music Content” means content that is delivered to, uploaded to, or claimed on, the Service by a music licensor partner of YouTube; and

Direct Ad Revenues. 

The Net Revenues from the views of ads displayed or streamed by YouTube or an authorized third party directly on your Shorts Content (i.e. ads that are directly connected solely with your Shorts Content rather than ads interspersed within the Shorts Feed).

Shorts Subscription Revenues. 

YouTube will pay you 45% of Shorts Subscription Revenues. "Shorts Subscription Revenues” are the Net Revenues from subscription fees that are attributed to the monthly views of your Shorts Content as a percentage of the monthly views of all or a subset of participating content in the relevant subscription offering. If your Shorts Content is included in and viewed by a user in multiple subscription offerings, YouTube will pay you based on the subscription offering with the highest amount of Shorts Subscription Revenues. 

Shorts Including Third Party Content. 

This section describes how views are counted for the purposes of calculating each of the Creator Shorts Pool, Pooled Ad Revenues and Shorts Subscription Revenues when a Short includes third party content. If YouTube credits any content owned or licensed by any party other than the uploader as making a contribution to a Short, then each view of that Short will be divided on a fractional basis as specified in the Shorts Monetization Policies. Those policies describe whether and how YouTube credits the contribution of different content types to a Short and how views are allocated between the uploader of a Short and parties contributing content to a Short.

Ineligible Views. 

For the purposes of calculating payments under this Module, YouTube will not count views of Shorts where views are ineligible, as described in the Shorts Monetization Policies.

You represent that: (i) you are at least 18 years of age, or (ii) you are the parent or guardian of a YouTube Partner Program participant aged between 13 and 18 and are agreeing to these terms on their behalf.
