What do I need to do in order to...

Promote my Youtube videos with a manual payment option?

 

Why is only the automatic payment option available? Seems a bit unfair to force you to do auto payments....

Is it possible to explain the steps I need to take in order to have the option to make manual payments?

Hi @Matthew M,

 

The manual payments option isn't available for new accounts in North America, most countries of the EU and a few additional jurisdictions.

For an exhaustive current list, please refer to the help page linked-to below:

What exactly do you mean by new accounts though? I am currently lvl3 by the community ranking levels -- not a new account.

I am in the UK if that helps

 

Thanks

Hi @Matthew M,

 

I am not saying that you are new to the forum. As for the UK, if you created an account in the past and selected automatic payment, you cannot change that setting. If you are in the process of creating a new account, you cannot select manual payments due to the country.

 

Best,

Lakatos

So because I am in the UK, the only option I will ever have is automatic payments?

Correct. That's the current policy.
