The company plans to pay creators 45% of the ad money, according to one of the people. YouTube creators have traditionally received 55% of the money from the ads that play before and during their videos.” According to the leaked internal audio, YouTube will also lower the barrier for entry to the YouTube Partner Program, allowing more creators to make money from YouTube ads.
