To find out, simply open up your YouTube account and scroll down to “Settings -> Accounts”. There you’ll notice that you can purchase credits on YouTube, and in the top right you’ll see that a “Viewers” tab is currently visible.
If you like you can buy credits per minute for your video which will be marked by a green “x” next to the “viewing time” indicator (unless you chose to change it).
You may also choose to buy credits for your video by clicking on a specific frame or selecting the frame in the edit suite.
How much will I save?
You will be able to pay for your credits through your YouTube account, however, you may not save any of the fees if you pay in cash.
If you choose to pay in cash then you are saving money and can pay for your credits in less per year which will also help to prevent you from accidentally paying too much.
If you are not concerned about any payments or saving, click on ‘Viewers’ and you’ll enter an email and password you use for paying on YouTube.
How long does it take to receive my credits?
Once you select your payment method, you’ll be prompted to select an amount for your credits you wish to apply.
If you are unfamiliar with YouTube viewing fees, you can read the entire YouTube viewing guide.
Are all my credits saved?
Once you select your online payment provider, your credits will be automatically transferred to your YouTube account. In order to receive your credits, you will first need to enable Viewer Management and then your account will be updated with your credits.
What if I need more credits?
If you are unable to pay for your credits from your account, simply contact the payment provider which you have enabled Viewer Management on and they will process an additional payment.
If your payments have reached their limit, then your account may be temporarily suspended and users may be unable to view their videos online.
What if I want to cancel my online payments on YouTube but I would like my online payments to continue?
If, for any reason, you would like your online payments to continue, follow the steps from the above guide to remove the Viewer Management button or enter another payment payment method.
You can add a payment payment button in your account settings next to payment method so that you’ll be able to add more payment providers as needed or disable it altogether
