    Welcome to a long awaited guide. You've probably been linked here from the Support forum or somewhere else because you needed help in joining Freedom!. This guide will be there for just that.

    I will structure this guide in a few sections:
    1. Partnership requirements
    2. Applying to join
    3. The review process
    4. Accepting the invite
    5. Adding your PayPal email address
    Freedom! partnership requirements

    To join Freedom! you will need to have an active YouTube channel. At least five videos are recommended. You will also need monetisation enabled on your account. Yes, enabling monetisation will require you to make an AdSense account but once you join Freedom! that account will be useless. Another important requirement is to have no strikes on your channel. You may see strikes on your YouTube Features Page. To get rid of a copyright strike you may look at this thread. As of community guidelines strikes you can appeal them. Having many claims on videos may hurt your chances too. Also you will need:
    • 10 000 Total Lifetime Views
    • 4 000 Hours of watchtime within the past 12 months
    • 1 000 Subscribers
    Applying to join Freedom!

    Once you meet all the requirements you can apply to join the Freedom!! network. Go to this site and press the large button saying “Partner with us”. There select your YouTube account and fill out the form with your real data and please use a valid E-mail address.
    I recommend not using an email like GMX, Mail.de or other German or Austrian mail providers from personal experience.
    Once you've filled out the form you automatically get access to the Freedom! Dashboard.

    The review process

    After applying to join Freedom! your channel will be reviewed over the course of usually 2-3 days. An agent from the Freedom! QC team will take a look at your channel and then you'll either be accepted or denied for any or no reason. Once you've been accepted to join Freedom! you will be invited to a chat with a Freedom! QC team member who will onboard you to Freedom!. You can ask them any questions you want and after the chat they will ”send you the ‘learn more button’”.


    Accepting the invite
    After the chat you will need to accept the network invitation in your YouTube Dashboard. Go there and press the ”Learn More” button. Accept the agreements there are and you will be in Freedom! and ready to make money off of YouTube.

    Adding your PayPal Email address
    After being accepted and joining Freedom! you will be able to get paid through PayPal. Only PayPal. They've said multiple times that they will add other payment methods in the future but it hasn't happened yet. To see whether you can use PayPal in your home country you may look at this site.

    Adding a PayPal email address to your Freedom! Dashboard is relatively easy. Go to your profile on the Dashboard and press “Edit profile”. Then put the email of your PayPal account in the field for it and press “Save changes”.

    And that's it for joining Freedom!. I hope this has helped, as always you can ask questions in the Support Forum if you need further assistance.

    No, it's not. Though you should be able to understand the dashboard.

    Thanks for your response. Concerning dashboard (and forum lol), I'm can manage with the Google translation if necessary. Contrariwise, chat in english is very hard for me because my english is very bad.

    i keep seeing this "10,000" number. but, people forget one thing. the old channels that are under 10,000 still have Monetization . DO you have a spot for them? or is it like everyone else, and "10,000 club" only no little youtbers?

    i understand you need to make money, helping us and things. but do not forget the old Youtube channles that HAVE this all ready.

    Channels that are in the YPP already can join. I've outlined in the guide that the 10000 views are just to join the YPP and not to join Freedom!.
