YouTube Royalty Calculator

Although YouTube does not publish an official per stream rate for artists, many studies have found that unsigned artists typically get paid differently then signed artists. YouTube tends to pay the majority of their revenues earned through both YouTube subscriptions and advertising money.

The royalty payments from YouTube depend on several different variables, such as the country they stream from, whether the users are using a paid YouTube subscription or a free plan, and the deals different music distributors have with YouTube.

The calculator below will give you a rough estimate of how much money you can expect to receive in royalties aside from distribution fees, management, and the labels’ cut. For other streaming services, check out our list of other music royalty calculators.

Please note – The estimate below is the total amount the artist receives before any label, management, and distributors have taken their cut.
