“So now creators have a total of 11 ways to monetize on YouTube,” said YouTube Chief Product Officer Neal Mohan.
And this YouTube Shorts monetization system will also apply to all members of the YouTube Partner Program and new creators.
Even so, there are several conditions so that you can monetize videos on YouTube Shorts.
YouTube Shorts Monetization Requirements
To be able to monetize YouTube Shorts videos, there are several requirements that must be met by creators.
Starting early 2023, creators focused on YouTube Shorts content are advised to apply for monetization first.
To be able to apply for monetization, YouTube provides rules where your channel must have 1,000 subscribers.
Then there are the 10 million views of Shorts videos watched in less than 90 days.
Later this YouTube partner will receive monetization in the format of short videos or long videos.

YouTube Shorts Sharing System
In its official statement, YouTube said it would adopt a fixed funding system and rely on a unique sharing system for Shorts monetization.
YouTube will calculate revenue from advertising which will be totaled every month.

Then the results will be divided based on the contribution of each in the total number of YouYube Shorts views.
Revenue share figures are also adjusted according to whether the creator uses the music or not.
