    I've monetized videos in the past. The revenue is okay but unless you have decent traffic it's not honestly worth it IMO.

    I do ok but I have been on there a while. I know people that have quit working cause youtube pays them better. There are even people that have made enough to buy a house off one video.

    Most people dont do enough to get a following so dont make anything.

    A few people that do it for a living.

    Do you need to add a credit card or do they send a check?

    You can ether have them mail you a check or do direct deposit. When I started I let them cut me a check just to get to see it... They wont pay you until you have over $100 profit. Then it takes about a month to send out that check. Once you get were you are making over $100 a month you will get a check every month.


    Even if you only have videos making $5 a month total its worth it. I have videos I made years ago that constantly make me a few $s a month. Not much at a time per video but they have long sense payed me for the time I put in them has been money for nothing ever sense.
