Procedure to link your channel


  1. Review the following YouTube acceptance criteria to make sure your channel qualifies.
  2. Email us with your channel URL or ID
  3. YouTube requires us to submit channel linking requests no more than once a month. We submit these on the 25th of each month. So if your request comes in on the 26th, it will not get sent to YouTube until the 25th of the following month. Once YouTube receives our requests, it takes about 1 week to receive their response to your application.






Fees for joining Apprise’s YouTube MCN range from 5-15% and are subject to evaluation based on the standing of the channel once the channel is submitted for review.
