  9. That's it! You have just initiated the partnership process. Our Quality Control team will review your channel first, and if your channel is ready to be partnered, you will be able to request the invitation. Don't worry, we will get in touch with you as soon as we finish the review. You can also check back to see the current status of your request. Just click the Channels menu.

    Tips:
    - Note that there are 5 steps in this process, so you will not automatically become a partner by adding your channel. You will only link your channel to Freedom! after you request and accept the invitation in your YouTube Dashboard.

 

Found an issue or have questions? Below you will find answers to the most common questions.

 

What are the requirements for partnership?

There a two sets of requirements. The ones from YouTube, which you can learn more about here, and the Freedom! requirements. Currently, for a channel to be considered for a partnership (besides having to meet YouTube requirements), the channel must also have at least 5,000 subscribers AND at 100,000 views in the last 30 days.

If your channel meets YouTube requirements, and you don't yet meet our requirements, but you feel that there are reasons for which your channel deserves a chance, please do reach out to us at support@freedom.tm and detail your case. We will be happy to make another review, based on the additional details you send us.

 

What do I do if my channel is rejected after review?

During a review process, we may find that there are some issues with the channel. But don't worry, we'll tell you what's wrong so that you can make changes in your channel and apply for another review. The most common issues are:

  • Channel doesn't meet the requirements for a partnership.
  • Channel is inactive (no new uploads for several months).
  • Channel is empty or doesn't have enough content.
  • Channel's content may potentially violate YouTube's Terms of Service and/or Community Guidelines.

Your next step should be to address those issues. Once you feel that your channel is ready to be partnered, get in touch with our support team no request a new review. You can open a ticket clicking in the link "Submit a request" at the top of this page, or by clicking here.

Note: Make sure to add a screenshot of your YouTube Features page as it may help speed up the process. 

 

I have requested the invitation, but I can't find it anywhere, what do I do?

After requesting the invitation, it may take a few hours for it to show up on your YouTube channel. If the invitation was successfully sent, you will see a note in your YouTube Dashboard that says that Freedom! wants to access your account. Just click the "Get Started" button, read the terms, and follow the steps on screen to complete the process.

Note: The Freedom! Dashboard may take up to 48 hours to update with the information you see on YouTube. If you don't have immediate access to all the Freedom! benefits in the dashboard, give it some time to update. Don't worry, any earnings generated after you accepted the invitation on YouTube will not be lost, even if the Freedom! Dashboard has not yet updated the information.
