  1. I am trying to monetize my youtube channel. I do not have any ads on my page yet as i was just approved to start the process. When i go to the second step in YouTube and set up an adsense, it says i have an existing account and that i need to access it or cancel it. The problem is i cant access anything on my adsense page. I can click on anything on the side menu. But it says i need to cancel it.

    • Samantha first let me start with an apology for the late reply and I’m really sorry.
      Now, what you need to do is just follow the steps above in my article and delete your account. After deleting, again create your AdSense account with the same email id and then try it.
      The same error did occur with one of my mates.
      Try it once & let me know if it works!
