Dailymotion Monetization

Dailymotion Monetization

Once you've enabled monetization, you will automatically start earning revenue from your uploaded videos.
On Dailymotion, many videos are served with in-stream advertisements—ads that appear before, during, or after videos (learn more about ad formats). Enabling video monetization allows you to share in the revenue these advertisements generate when served on your videos.
The more views your videos get, the more revenue you earn—so make sure to share your videos. And, you can make even more by embedding your videos on your own websites. To do this, you'll need to verify your domains.
To get paid, make sure to add your banking information. Earned revenue will automatically be transferred to your PayPal account or bank account every month when your balance exceeds $100. Also, you can always track your revenue in your analytics and view your payments.

Payout schedule

With the Partner program, you can generate income from the ads displayed on your videos.
In this article, you'll be able to understand how we compute your earnings and the timeline of your payments.

Step 1 - Revenue consolidation


  • An estimation (indicated with the *) will be displayed on your Earnings page until the consolidation of your revenues
  • The revenues are consolidated up to 60 days after the end of the current month.
  • Your revenues are consolidated when the * is no longer displayed on your interface. 

Step 2 - Invoice creation

  • Reach $100 when your revenues will be consolidated
  • Fill your bank information and accept the auto-invoicing
  • If the requirements have been reached, Dailymotion will start the invoice creation
  • This invoice will be created up to 15 days after the consolidation
  • Once the invoice is created, you'll be able to find it on your Earnings page.

Step 3 - Payout 

  • Once the invoice has been created, Dailymotion will start the payout process through its different partners (Payoneer or PayPal, depending on the information filled on your account)

  • The payout will be sent 30 days after the last day of the invoice creation month.

Here is an example of a payment schedule for January:

  • (1) - An estimation (indicated with the *) will be displayed on your Earnings page, and a consolidated version of your earnings will be available before March 31th (60 days)

  • (2) -  An invoice will be available on your account before April 15th (15 days)

  • (3) - The invoice will be paid within 30 days of the end of the month after the invoice. You should receive your payment before May 31st. (45 days) 

To find more information about the payout schedule, don't hesitate to read your Partner agreement available here (section 9)

Earn revenue from a website

Once you've enabled monetization, you can earn revenue from website monetization in two ways:
  1. Embed the Dailymotion widget that automatically displays recommended videos
  2. Embed individual Dailymotion videos on your verified sites
    • To start embedding individual videos, you'll need to verify your sites

On Dailymotion, many videos are served with in-stream advertisements—ads that appear before, during, or after videos (learn more about ad formats). Website monetization gives everyone the opportunity to share in the revenue these advertisements generate. Simply embed Dailymotion videos or the Dailymotion Widget on one of your sites, and earn revenue every time someone views an ad served on these videos.
To get paid, make sure to add your banking information. Earned revenue will automatically be transferred to your PayPal account or bank account every month when your balance exceeds $100. Also, you can always track your revenue via analytics and view your payments.

Ad formats

When your video plays, your audience will also see in-stream advertisements that are served within the Dailymotion video player.
Advertisements are always labeled or closable. We are committed to creating an efficient and transparent advertising ecosystem for content creators, advertisers, and users.
We serve 3 main types of in-stream ads:
  • Pre-Roll: A video advertisement that plays before your video starts.

  • Mid-Roll: A video advertisement that plays in the middle of your video. Your video will pause, the ad will play, and then your video will resume. Mid-Rolls are usually only served with videos that exceed 5 minutes in length.

  • Post-Roll: A video advertisement that plays after your video is over.
You can find all our ad formats on our Advertising website
Note: It is currently not possible to choose which advertisements appear with videos. However, we regularly monitor and update our algorithms in order to serve relevant ads on your videos.
