Facebook Page Monetization requirements

You are a content creator, you have a good number of followers and your content getting a good number of views now you want to monetize your Facebook page. But you don’t know what are the requirements for Facebook page Monetization. If you are facing this issue, you should follow this article to know when you can apply for monetizing your Facebook page.

In this article, we will know all the requirements of Facebook Page Monetization.

Monetization Eligibility for Facebook Page

There are a few different ways to make money from the content you post on Facebook. To be eligible, however, your entire Page and its content must adhere to our rules for monetization. How well you and your Page follow these rules will determine your monetization eligibility.

Rules for monetization

You and your Page need to follow three main sets of rules to be eligible to monetize your content on Facebook:

  1. Facebook Community Standards:
    • These are Facebook’s foundational rules against unsafe content that depicts graphic violence, nudity, and hate speech. In most cases, even non-monetized content must follow Facebook’s Community Standards.
  2. Partner Monetisation Policies:
    • Facebook’s Partner Monetisation Standards are typically applied at the Page level and address the behavior of your Page as a whole, including rules for the content that your Page creates, how that content is shared and how your Page receives and makes online payments.
  3. Content Monetisation Policies:
    • These rules typically apply at the content level. They address the content of each individual video or post that your Page publishes. Facebook’s Content Monetisation Policies include rules against violent, sexual, criminal, graphic, or profane content.

Monetizations Standards and Policies according to Facebook

Partner Monetization Policies

In order for publishers, creators, and third-party providers to utilize monetization tools on Facebook, they must pass and remain compliant with a set of rules called Partner Monetization Policies and Content Monetization Policies.

These rules apply to all Pages, profiles in professional mode, Events, and Groups on Facebook.

Partner Policies

In order to earn money on Facebook, you must:

Create content on an eligible surface

At this time, monetization features are available for public content on Facebook Pages, profiles in professional mode, Events and Groups. Content paid for on Facebook, but consumed on a third-party site, may be eligible for monetization. Facebook profiles outside of professional mode are ineligible for monetization products and features.

Reside in an eligible country

To monetize, you must reside in an eligible country where the product or feature is available. You may lose your ability to monetize if you move to an ineligible location or if Facebook changes product eligibility.

Follow Facebook Community Standards

These rules apply to all posts and interactions on Facebook, including rules against hate speech, calls for violence, sexualized content, and inauthentic behavior. Any content posted by publishers, creators, or third-party providers that violates Facebook Community Standards, including Facebook policies regarding intellectual property, authenticity, and user safety, may cause creators, publishers, or third-party providers to become ineligible or lose their eligibility to monetize.
If you believe your content may have violated our Community Standards, check for a notification. If you believe you may have violated Facebook policies regarding intellectual property, learn more about copyright or trademark infringement.

Follow Facebook Content Monetization Policies

Monetized content must pass an additional level of standards above and beyond Facebook Community Standards. These additional rules are called Content Monetization Policies. These include deeper restrictions on the content itself and the formats in which it is presented.

Share authentic content

Creators, publishers and third-party providers posting content flagged as misinformation and false news may be ineligible or may lose their eligibility to monetize. You can read more about this here. Creators, publishers, and third-party providers sharing clickbait or sensationalism may be ineligible or lose their eligibility to monetize. You can read more about this here. Creators and publishers posting content reported to Facebook as unlawful by an authorized entity may be ineligible or lose their eligibility to monetize.

Share original content

Content creators, publishers, and third-party providers can only monetize content that they created or were involved in the creation of, or that directly features the creator, publisher, or third-party provider. Content that is unoriginal or reproduced without making meaningful enhancements (commentary, parody, creative editing, etc.) cannot be monetized. Affiliate entity content distributed by third-party providers, such as multi-channel networks or social media agencies, may be considered original content.

Monetize authentic engagement

Creators, publishers, and third-party providers can only monetize content consumed by their natural, authentic audience. This means creators, publishers, and third-party providers may not engage in any behavior that boosts or amplifies followers, views, or engagement for the purpose of generating more revenue. This includes manufactured sharing, which is the coordinated distribution of content, often for compensation, and high-volume crossposting. Pages managed by a third-party provider, such as a multi-channel network, are able to share content from affiliate entities, so long as the multi-channel network and affiliate talent, creators, and content providers are not monetizing the same piece of content.
Creators, publishers, and third-party providers may lose the ability to monetize if their audience significantly consists of fake engagement, including, but not limited to, Likes, follows, and views.

Follow Facebook Payment Terms

Monetizing creators, publishers, and third-party providers must comply with Facebook’s rules for making and receiving payments.

Follow Facebook Pages, Groups and Events Terms

Content published on a Page must follow Facebook Page-specific Terms, including restrictions on manufactured sharing. Content published in a Group must follow Facebook Groups-specific Terms. Content published in an event must follow Facebook Events-specific Terms.

Develop an established presence

Creators, publishers, and third-party providers must have an authentic, established presence on Facebook. To be eligible for all monetization features means having an established presence for at least 30 days. To gain access to in-stream ads, this also includes maintaining a sufficient follower base, indicated by your Facebook followers, and a minimum number of videos.

Follow Facebook rules for politicians and governments

The following political and government entities are ineligible for monetization:
1. Current elected and appointed government officials.
2. Current political candidates.
3. Political parties.
4. Registered political committees.
5. Government agencies and departments.
Communications that are regulated as political advertising under applicable law are also ineligible for monetization features. However, in the United States, the branded content tool may be used in branded content posts if the paying partner has been authorized to run ads about social issues, elections, or politics.

Only connect to entities that follow Facebook policies

Monetized creators, publishers, and third-party providers, and those that have not been onboarded to a monetization product, may lose the ability to monetize if an entity connected to it has violated these policies.

Content Monetisation Policies

All content on Facebook must comply with Facebook Terms and Community Standards. These are Facebook’s high-level rules against sexual, violent, profane, or hateful content. However, content appropriate for Facebook, in general, is not necessarily appropriate for monetization.
