YouTube said Monday that revenue sharing will begin for creators of YouTube Shorts Feb. 1, enabling them to earn money from ads viewed between videos in the Shorts feed.

The Google-owned video platform said the new revenue sharing plan replaces the YouTube Shorts Fund, and creators and their channels must follow the platform’s policies on channel monetization, community guidelines, copyright, Google AdSense program, repetitious/reused content and terms of service.

Monetizing partners must accept the Shorts Monetization Module to be eligible for revenue sharing, and those who do so after Feb.
