YouTube is world’s most streamed video platform. To earn money on YouTube, first step is to be eligible  for monetization, which requires at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours. One certain thing that most of beginners don’t realize is that there’s no such thing as a fixed salary or stipend for YouTubers.

Each YouTube channel bids a different amount of money,  depending on how great it is and how many viewers they have. Before hopping on how much You can earn from per view, let’s discuss what factors influence YouTube’s pay. 

The Factors affecting YouTube Pay 

Firstly, not every view your video earns is counted as monetized; a viewer has to  watch the ad for at least 30 seconds to tally as a view. It’s an a significant factor because it tells that  you don’t get paid for every view your video gets Viewers must stick around and view the ad for at least 30 seconds (or all of the ad if it is shorter than 30 seconds) for your channel to count viewed for it. You can’t do anything in this aspect except for wishing that YouTube shows entertaining ads to your audience so that they watch the complete ad. 

The next factor is that YouTube has various CPM for various viewers. CPM means  cost per mille and denotes the amount that an advertiser gives for every 1,000 views on an ad. This CPM  varies from region to region and ad views from different countries gets  different pay out amounts. For example, Norway ($43.15) and Germany ($38.85) are two countries with high CPM rates whereas India stands with around $0.70 ( ₹53.46).

At last, the more views you bring, the higher chances that more people have seen the ads on your videos, and accordingly the more money you will earn from YouTube (know more:

Keeping  these factors in mind, let’s calculate how much YouTube spends per view on average.

Simplifying ,  How Much YouTube Pays Per View? 

YouTube costs contractors $0.18 per view on average. YouTube spends 68% of this rate to YouTubers through Google AdSense. It means that, in theory, you would earn $0.12 for every view—and so $122 for every 1,000 views.

The numbers aren’t always so easy. Some people apply ad blockers, and a good percentage of those who skip the ad in just few seconds. For these reasons, among others, the real pay per video view of YouTube is approximately $0.003 to $0.005. This means a YouTuber earns $3 to $5 per  1,000 views their videos earn.

More Views = More Money

YouTube spends a  restricted amount of money per view, still, Youtubers don’t earn the same amount themselves. That’s because the total amount a Youtuber gets through YouTube relies on how many views they fetch and which country or region their viewers are from. We can’t calculate the precise amount of pay per view , as the viewers varies from countries and regions. Yet, an average calculation is that YouTube pays $0.003 to $0.005 per view.
