You can drag video to be uploaded in this interface and the upload process will start immediately.
After the video is uploaded fill the text fields according to the video; an example is shown in above picture. Actually as soon as you upload video it becomes live and there’s no save button as the changes you made are saved automatically. You can click on the blue link below the title to see your video live. Now we need to start the monetization process.

Step 3 – Enable the monetization settings

Scroll upwards and just next to the upload button click on the downward arrow and select Dashboard to manage different YouTube settings.
Inside Dashboard click on Channel Settings in the left pane; you’ll see Monetization option on the right pane.
Click on Enable My Account to enable your account for monetization to make make from YouTube account.
