So How much money does PewDiePie make on youtube?
PewDiePie has a lot of streams of income, but his main or the one where he has earned the most is youtube. So how much is he making there?
PewDiePie is making at least $20.000 per video, if not more. The upper limit is around $30.000.
How did I calculate that?
Well, I know what my CPM was on gaming channels. But his views retention and geo were better than mine. So I have used CPM from videos, which had at least 75% of viewers from tier 1 countries. Plus, we have to take into account that a lot of kids are watching his videos, and they tend to click more on ads than others.
How much money does PewDiePie make on youtube monthly?
He makes anywhere from $895.200 to $1.342.857.
PewDiePie’s monthly earnings are quite stunning. These earnings are, of course, on average. I took a look at how many videos he has posted in the last 12 months, how many views they got, and calculated it from there.
With knowing all that, he makes yearly at least $10.5 million up to $16 million per year, from youtube alone.
How much does PewDiePie make from all revenue streams?
If we take in to account the new deal, he signed in early August 2019. I highly believe that in 2019, his yearly income is over 28 million dollars after taxes.
Just from youtube alone, he is going to make over $10 million.
The contract he has signed with DLive is the most significant check he has ever received. They had to offer him at least twenty million guaranteed per year to leave twitch.tv and maybe with some other bonuses or ways to earn money. He had almost 14.5 million followers on twitch when he left them, which would quickly generate him 10 million per year if he kept his regular streaming hours. And for him to take a “chance” to the new unknown platform, he must have been offered some crazy amount of money. I highly believe that I am quite modest with 20$ million.
He also makes quite good money from merchandise.
An article that was released almost a year ago, he claimed that he has earned in a total of 42$ million from merchandise alone. If we take into account that his followers are growing each second, he is going to make probably around 10-20 million dollars in the year 2019.
And these are his not only earnings. He is also investing his money. He revealed that last year (2018), he had made around 5 million dollars just from his investments. And lastly, he does sponsor posts on social.
How much does PewDiePie make on sponsored posts on social media?
Now we have to take into account what kind of sponsored posts they are. PewDiePie can be giving just a sponsored post, sponsored post with links or tags. Followed up sponsored posts and sponsored posts specifically on one platform or cross-promoting on all of his social media.
He does not do these as often as others. But he gets paid a lot more than others. I believe that for a sponsored post across all of his social media accounts, he can charge around $200.000.
How much money does PewDiePie make yearly from all revenue streams?
So let’s take a look at his earnings by platform/revenue stream.
- PewDiePie’s yearly earnings from Youtube: 10.5-$16 million
- DLive: $20.000.000
- Merchandise: 10-20 million dollars
- Sponsored posts: $5.000.000
How much money does PewDiePie make in a year?
PewDiePie makes at least $45.500.000 yearly. But if I am not mistaken, he is in the tax category in Sweden, where his tax rate is 50% yearly. I am not sure how the tax system exactly works in Sweden. I am sure that there are ways how he can reduce his tax rate or the total amount of money he is paying to the government in taxes. But I would say that out of these 45 million dollars he is loosing at least 17.5 million dollars to the government in taxes.
So at the end of the year, I highly believe that PewDiePie is walking away with 28.000.000 million dollars, which is not bad for online streamers/gamer.

My last thoughts
This article aimed to explain how much money does PewDiePie makes in general and on each platform/revenue stream. I have tried my best to explain how I have come to his earnings. All of these numbers are just estimations, which, unfortunately, other websites with a similar article like this won’t admit, which is a shame. As I have explained earlier, all of these calculations are based on my youtube, twitch, and sponsored post-earnings. The contract with DLive is pure estimation, but I highly doubt he would take less money than he was making on Twitch.tv, and the merchandise earnings were from an interview, and I highly doubt that they have declined when his following is growing each second.
