Attempt to monetize your channel with AdSense once you fulfill the criteria
According to a new rule laid down by Google, a new channel can monetize its videos once it hits 10k views. Once your channel reaches that milestone you can apply for that. To monetize your channel’s videos with AdSense: first of all, you have to click on the Channel Tab, while you’re at video manager. You’ll be directed to ‘Status and features’ page by default.
You can go to ‘Advanced’ page to set your channels’ country, in case you didn’t do that previously. In case ‘monetization’ isn’t available in your country, choose a country where it is allowed.
Then go back to ‘Status and features’ page. In the middle of the page, you’ll see monetization section. If this is the first time you’re going to monetize your channel, then you’ll see ‘Enable’, otherwise you’ll see ‘View monetization settings’. Firstly we’re going to show you the steps, if your channel is not monetized yet.
You have to click on ‘Enable’ button, you’ll be directed to a page where you’ll see ‘Get started’ on a blue button.
If you click on that, a form will appear that will read ‘YouTube Partner Program Terms’, where you’ll have to check the three boxes of representing major terms and then click ‘I accept’.

Then you’ll click on the blue ‘Set up AdSense account’ button.
You’ll be directed to a page that belongs to Google AdSense.
Create a new AdSense account if you didn’t have any
You’ll have two options, either to ‘Sign in’ or ‘Create account’. We hereby assume that the gmail id associated with your channel has already been included in an AdSense account. In that case, you’ll simply have to ‘Sign in’. Once you have signed in, you will have to ‘Accept association’ as depicted in the following image.
You do that and you’ll be redirected to your channel at this page with url https://www.youtube.com/account_monetization
There you’ll have to click on blue ‘Monetize your videos’ link, otherwise the monetization process won’t be complete. Once you do that, the process is complete. Now you can click on ‘Review or change AdSense association’ link to see which AdSense account your channel has been linked to. You’ll get to see information like this as below.
