YouTube also said it would add a review process for new creators who apply to be in the YouTube Partner Program in a few weeks.
The YouTube Partner Program lets creators monetize content on YouTube in many ways, including advertisements, paid subscriptions and merchandise.
Any revenue earned on channels with under 10,000 views up until Thursday will not be impacted, YouTube said.
The company vowed an overhaul of its practices last month, saying it has started an extensive review of its advertising policies.
