Unpaid earnings from YouTube creators are missing from AdSense account
YouTube, the most popular video platform in the world, is visited by millions of users every day. YouTube content creators are an integral part of the service’s success.
Any YouTube user can upload videos to the platform once they create an account. YouTubers can also monetize their channels by meeting certain requirements.
Similar to other Google services, the AdSense system is responsible for monetizing YouTube. Therefore, users who want to monetize their channel should create an AdSense account and link it to their YouTube accounts.
At the beginning of each month, you should see the past month’s unpaid earnings in AdSense. But currently, many YouTube video creators face the problem that their unpaid earnings are still missing in AdSense.
YouTube creator earnings that were unpaid weeks ago are not being transferred to AdSense
According to several reports, the unpaid earnings for June and May for many YouTube creators are not being transferred to AdSense, even though the month of July is already halfway through.
In some cases, the issue affects all unpaid earnings. In other cases, the problem also partially affects unpaid earnings.
My AdSense payment account balance is stuck at 70% due to the YouTube payment account
I already accumulated 70% of threshold income in Adsense payment account, then my last 30% YouTube payment went to YouTube payment account.
My problem is that I can’t get the 70% because the 30% went to the YouTube payment account and not the Adsense payment account that my previous YouTube earnings go into
The new YouTube Payments section could be causing the issue
It’s worth noting that YouTube Creators accounts have recently received a new “YouTube Payments” section. As a result, there is now a “YouTube Payments” section and an “AdSense Payments” section.
However, it seems that the implementation still needs some tweaking as the new option could cause these issues.
Is YouTube no longer using Adsense for checkout?
So if I go to google. com/adsense I have a drop down box in the top right that says “Payment Account” and two options “Youtube” and “Adsense”. Normally my money goes to the AdSense site every month, I’ve never had anything on the YouTube tab. But this month I have money in the YouTube tab but not in the AdSense tab.
@TeamYouTube My Google Adsense is showing May earnings but still updating my June earnings. My main AdSense shows May earnings and AdSense for YouTube shows June earnings. I’m really worried about that. YT channel:
A solution is in the works
Thankfully, the YouTube team is aware of the issue and is working on a fix, but they don’t have an estimated time of arrival yet.
no problem!! We’re already working to fix the issue where some creators’ unpaid earnings aren’t yet being transferred to AdSense 🚧
We will update this story as new developments emerge.
