If you have YouTube account and submitted some videos, you should know or you will get a notify or you set by yourself, to enable a feature to make money through your videos, with Google AdSense.
For our case, we did not set any AdSense information until we received a message when we submitted our videos. it was about “Monetisation” message.
Actually, in your YouTube account, you will see this setting:
What you have to do is that you connect your YouTube account with your AdSense account.
In the same YouTube setting screen, you located the Question “How will I be paid?” and click the link “associate an AdSense account” in Answer content.
Now we are accessed to AdSense account associate setting UIs, just follow their steps.
If you’re already an AdSense publisher, you must sign in with the Google Account that you use to access your AdSense account.
Since our AdSense is in another Google account, so here we select “Use a different or new Google Account”:
So we click “Yes, proceed to Google Account sign in”
Now in this step, you will be asked re-sign in your Google account, you must be attention here ! If you have an existing AdSense account, you will have to login using your AdSense account !
You should see the content like below screen “You will now associate your AdSense account with YouTube…”, otherwise means that you did not login with your existing AdSense account.
After you clicked Accept association button, now you might be asked to select your YouTube name since it is associate proceeding.
Then you see the associate successfully screen. and it asks your login again with your previous Google account (not the AdSense one) to complete the process.
When you re-signed in your previous Google account, go to YouTube account settings, you should see your AdSense account associated has been approved message, like below screen, otherwise you have not completed entire associate proceed, try to do all above steps again.
