All these are influenced by several factors like device played on, the location of the viewer, ad inventory, how many ads there are on a video, how many people skip the ads, type of advertisement, ad engagement, type of content etc. The cost of an ad view is based on an auction between advertisers based on views. Advertisers have to bid a minimum of $0.01 per view.

Here they get paid based on watch time on their videos. The longer the viewers watch their videos, the more money they earn.
Pat earns more income from the selling of merchandise which consist of T-Shirts.
