I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Moderntechstudio 10/11/11 12:49 PM
I am underage and I knew that my mother is supposed to apply for me and she did. I got an email saying that I am underage but I didn't sign up my mom did and they said that if a parent signs up for me its fine so why did I receive that email? My mom put HER Payee name and there really isn't any other information that they wanted to know about my parent so my mom can proof that it isn't me applying. For example it didn't ask for my age or wether a parent was applying or an adult for himself or even for an email well because they already know my email I guess. So what can I do to sign up and proof that it isn't me signing up?

Your parents have to create a seperate adsense account in there name. And for them to apply, they need a website to submit with there application. They cannot use your youtube url.
After they create an adsense account, they can link it to your youtube, by following that link that you received to join, and log in to there adsense account.
 
Other then that, doing what you tried, everything has to be un-associated with you when applying, try what you di, and make sure she fills everything out in her name, address. tax info ect.. including the her email in the adsense application, and use your tube url for the domain., see what happens. if that does not work then my first paragraph is the only way it can be done
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Moderntechstudio 10/11/11 1:22 PM
Howis she going to put her email since it is not giving her an option to put an email?
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Gambit66 10/11/11 1:29 PM
This suggestion is only a theory, Did you log into your you tube account, and click monetize you tube with adsense, and from there get taken too the adsense application? If so, then she needs to fill it out with her information only, not yours, if there is no place for an email to be entered, then this wont work, as your email on this application from the you tube link notes that you are uinderage for adsense, and you should refer to my first post and paragraph.

I got a message on my youtube page telling me to get monetized and then the page for signing up for adsense came up. There was a box that I was supposed to put my email in it so I put mine because I didn't know that I had to be 18 or older and then when I went to the next page it said that the person that is going to receive the money needs to be 18 or older so I told my mom to do it. She only did the second page, but ever since I can't get access to the first page for signing up where it asked me for my email because it just keeps brining me to the 2nd page. My mom has tried to sign up three times now but it isn't getting accepted. Do you know where she can put her email since I can't access to the first page? If not then if she tries to make an account and link it with a website first then later with my Youtube channel can she take off the first website that she has to put to make the account?
Thanks for your fast replies btw

I`m working on a solution for you in the you tube partner forum, which is also for monetizing you tube.
 
Yes if you already placed your email, you cannot unassociate it, because you are underaged. So that might have worked if you entered her email insted.
 
Be patient,,

Hey I just found a different way to apply. What I did was that I completely signed out and went to google adsense to sign up like a regular person and my mom filled out all the information and on the last page it gave her the option to enter her email since it didn't know my email because I signed out. She entered her email and applied so we are waiting for it now. If this does not work then there is no other way to proof google that a parent is signing up haha. 
Thank you for helping me out!

Does she have a website???
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Moderntechstudio 10/11/11 4:11 PM
On the URL section she put my Youtube URL.

Moderntechstudio, did your account get approved? Please reply ASAP! thanks!
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage gddsmith 10/11/11 8:39 PM
No that does not work because you can not sign up for Adsense directly when you only want to use YouTube. A direct application to Adsense will get rejected for domain ownership & then the mom will also have a disapproved application & make the process worse & longer.
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage JeromieDevera 10/11/11 8:40 PM
so my mom can create a simple blogspot blog and create adsense account?
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage gddsmith 10/11/11 8:52 PM
@Jeromie
She doesn't need to create a blog or anything. She just needs to use her own google account & apply through your YouTube channel as I stated in your other thread.
See PeggyK's responses in this thread & follow her directions to see if that solves the issue.


Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage JeromieDevera 10/11/11 9:03 PM
She cant apply through my youtube channel because she doesn't have a working adsense account... she would need to apply for an adsense account.
which she did just now, using my youtube channel as her website...
and i hear that doesnt work cuz she doesnt own the domain.
so she would have to make a blogger and use that as the site. but right now i have to wait because she already submitted the applocation
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Moderntechstudio 10/12/11 1:49 PM
They still haven't answered. I don't know if that's a good thing or not lol because every time that the application got denied they sent an email one hour after the application and said that it got denied.
@gddsmith so you are saying that my mother or Jeromie's need to apply through our youtube channel? The thing is that the message is not coming up on my youtube channel any longer. There used to be a message on my youtube page telling me to monetize my videos and after I applied for the first time it disappeared.
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Gambit66 10/12/11 2:28 PM
Well before you were underaged, and thats pretty cut and dry, even when you parent applied. Now it`s waiting for the crawler, but like gddsmith said, domain ownership will be the case. And if it is, then try the link below
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Moderntechstudio 10/12/11 2:57 PM
Something weird just happened. My mom went to addsense.com while she was logged into gmail and all the sudden there was a Terms of use that at the bottom it said accept to continue and then the page after that it said what emails do you want to receive and when she pressed next her adsense account was made. Now I don't know if my youtube channel is linked or not. Now if it isn't linked then how did she just make an adsense account without putting a website?
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Gambit66 10/12/11 3:06 PM
Becuase she did not need one, when applying in the way you applied.  So for futher confirmation that this works, go loginto your you tube account and go to your settings, and what do you see in the way of adsense, then go to from the side menu in you tube-manage account- and scroll down to- Content displayed along with my uploaded videos- and what do you se there?
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Moderntechstudio 10/12/11 3:14 PM
Nothing changed. It just says this 
Advertisements Allow advertisements
 
Do not allow advertisements
Choosing this option will disable ads on all videos you are currently monetizing. Ads will only be disabled for videos where you own all the rights.

Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Moderntechstudio 10/12/11 3:20 PM
Now that my mother has a adsense account and seems like no websites including my youtube channel is linked to it then how do I add my youtube channel to her account? Is there a place on her account that I can go to enter my youtube channel's URL?
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Moderntechstudio 10/12/11 3:51 PM
Alright I think I'm getting somewhere. I went to my youtube settings page and at the bottom I went to monetization then it gave me an option to " change AdSense association" so then I clicked on it and I found my email then what I did was that I chose the option to add a existing adsense account instead of my email and put my moms email and it accepted it. It said in front of status: Pending so now what do I do? I added my moms adsense account but don't think that I still got the adds. I went to my moms adsense account and it said that a third party wants access to your adsense and the third party was youtube so I accepted that.
Still no adds on my videos. Are they reviewing my account or something? I still see this message at the monetization tab  in my settings on youtube " You're almost done! Once your AdSense account is linked (this may take up to 48 hours), you will receive an email at moderntechstudio@gmail.com. You can then start monetizing your videos from the My Videos page." a good thing is that below this where it says the AdSense Publisher ID it is actually showing my moms adsense accounts ID so it did get connected to my moms adsense account but whats next? What should I do now? I can't apply since I gave them my moms email now because my mom already has a adsense account so do I just wait for something?
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Moderntechstudio 10/12/11 4:32 PM
OMG ITS  DONE!!!!
It worked I went to the monetization tab right now and it said that it is done!!!! I did'nt do anything and its done!
If anyone wants to know how I did it just read all the things that I posted here and I posted everything that I did step by step! Thanks for everyones help!
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Gambit66 10/12/11 4:56 PM
Good deal! Modern! I believe you have answered the long lost question on how to get this accomplished, I wish I could pick all your post as a best answer.
 
Sometime tonight I`ll repost your step by step process in this accomplishment here, and on th you tube forum.
 
Again congrats,, just remember to stay within the goog adsense policies to keep it working.
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Moderntechstudio 10/12/11 6:15 PM
LOL I can't even choose my own answer as the best answer because I was supposed to ask questions lol. By the way is this just a beta? What I mean is that like this is the first time I'm seeing youtube letting users get adds on their videos without being partnered or having one viral video. Does that mean that this is just a beta and it might end? Or is it here forever?
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Gambit66 10/12/11 6:23 PM
Not beta, if your invited, your invited. And google ads will continue to show as you stay with in policies. Again, if ads are on your videos, then your good to go.
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Moderntechstudio 10/12/11 6:40 PM
This is pretty cool I think and I can't wait to get partnered but until then this is a pretty cool option
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Gambit66 10/12/11 7:29 PM
Just remember, your mom needs to follow up on pin # when you reach a certain amount earned, Etc,, just keep up with adsense account emails. And make sure she gives you some money,,,lol
Re: I am underage and my mother signed up for me on Adsense but google Said I'm underage Moderntechstudio 10/12/11 7:38 PM
What do you mean by pin # and in her adsense account there is nothing about my channel. Is that odd? 
What I mean is that there is not a link to my channel anywhere in the account. I've never used adsense lol so I don't know if that is odd or not.

Adsense will send her a pin # when her account reaches a certain amount, don`t worrry about it.  And no link will be in her adsense account to your channel, if you start earning, that`s all you really need to see in adsense.
