Watch Time Requirement

The first requirement is that you must have at least 4,000 public watch hours on your videos in the last 12 months.

Subscriber Requirement

The second requirement is that your channel must have at least 1,000 subscribers. The good news is that in most cases, as long as you have engaging content, you should hit 1,000 subscribers before you reach 4,000 hours of watch time. It’s recommended that you encourage people to subscribe to your channel as much as possible in the early days so you can get up to that magic number of 1,000 and enable monetisation. You can do this by:

  • Asking people to subscribe during the video.
  • Adding an end screen to your video encouraging users to subscribe when they finish watching your video.
  • Adding a link to subscribe to your video description, as near to the top as possible.

Enable Notifications

If you are not yet eligible to enable monetisation on your YouTube channel, you can request to be notified by YouTube via email when you reach the minimum requirements of 4,000 watch hours in the past 12 months and 1,000 channel subscribers. You can do this by logging into your YouTube Studio and clicking the Monetisation button on the left hand side.
