Yes, YouTube does pay creators in Botswana for their content. YouTube has a revenue sharing program called YouTube Partner Program (YPP) that allows eligible creators to earn money from ads shown on their videos. Creators can apply to join the YPP once they meet certain eligibility requirements, including having a channel with at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours in the past 12 months.
Once a creator is accepted into the YPP, they can earn money from ads shown on their videos and from other monetization features such as Super Chat and Super Stickers. The amount of money a creator earns depends on a variety of factors, including the number of views on their videos, the type and number of ads shown, and the amount of revenue generated by those ads.
It’s important to note that YouTube’s policies and requirements may change over time, so it’s always a good idea to check the latest information on the YouTube Creator Academy website.
