This Account Is Not Yet Eligible To Use YouTube
Here is an issue I ran into recently.
So you signed up for Google G Suite account so you could use your own domain in gmail. Awesome right? It is awesome and I have about 4 different g suite accounts for different businesses and I love using it!
One issue I ran into recently on a new G Suite account I set up was trying to access YouTube. I am logged into my gsuite, but when I go to sign into YouTube I get ” This account is not yet eligible to use YouTube. <<< Why not??
So it turns out when you sign up for G Suite you might be in a trial period and that does not give you access to YouTube. I have no idea why! In my case it was a money issue. I came across a few posts that mentioned you needed to have spent $30 in G Suite before YouTube was eligible. Of course a free gmail account gets you instant YOUTUBE access! ARGHHHHH
I hopped on with Chat Support and they were helpful. I prepaid my $30, but they said it could take up to 24 hours so… I shall now wait!
Just a pain because I had blocked out a chunk of time today to get the videos I created up so I could use them on the new site!
Well I hope this helps someone… basically pay the $30 and wait a day…. duh! Very dumb Google… very dumb!
