If you participate in the YouTube Partner Program, your account receives revenue from two different types of advertising. One type is served by Google AdSense and the second is served directly by YouTube. Because of this, you will see two earnings entries per month within your AdSense Payment History. One entry will include earnings from AdSense for Content Host and any other Google AdSense product you may use, while the second entry will include earnings from YouTube.
Previously YouTube earnings payout took 60 days, but from now you can enjoy the benefit of early payouts!
Yesterday I received this email from YouTube:
You probably noticed in the past that monthly YouTube earnings payments occurred on a different timeline (about 60 days after they were earned) than AdSense earnings payments (about 30 days after they were earned). We are excited to announce that starting this month and moving forward, payments from both YouTube and AdSense will occur on the same 30-day cycle.
What this means is that your YouTube earnings for July will arrive this month rather than next month as they would have under the former earnings payment schedule. Many partners will see a larger-than-normal payout in August since they will be receiving their June and July YouTube earnings, plus their normal (July) AdSense earnings. In September and beyond, both YouTube and AdSense earnings will be on a 30 day cycle and payouts will be back at normal levels.
So enjoy more earnings, and on-time payouts. Cheers!
