This Account Is Not Yet Eligible To Use YouTube - How To Fix

This Account Is Not Yet Eligible To Use YouTube

youtube-account-not-eligibleHey what's up Fit Dad Chris here! Trying to add more info on the site about marketing etc… since I do a lot of it!

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!

UPDATE: I waited and the next day I was good to go with youtube! Be patient…

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!

    WOW! You forked out $30 just to get access to YouTube? They saw you coming. I would never give Google $30 to access YouTube. I’ll use my free account to access YouTube.

      Duh….. lol. If you want to use google with your own domain you need to be which is fine… they just have it set up like this which is kind of dumb, but there is nothing wrong with paying google money for a professional g suite account imho…. 😉

  • Jason says:

    Hi Chris, did you have to wait 30 days or it worked within 2 days? I prepaid my $30 and still no access. The Youtube link says 30 days and $30 but seems you were able to get around this?
