Who Earns The Most On YouTube?
Felix Kjellberg, also known as PewDiePie earns his living "through a mix of merchandise sales and ad revenue on YouTube," the Sun reports. Felix's annual income equals £78.9million, as proved by the numbers crunched by brand merchandise experts at Purple Moon Promo.
The Purple Moon Promo spokesperson commented as follows:
"We decided to have a look and find out who are the 20 YouTubers earning the most from selling products and from ads."
The second person on the list is Dude Perfect (£2.8million a month), an American trick shooter. He's followed by VanossGaming (£2.2million), a video gamer from Canada.
The top 10 list also includes two YouTubers from the UK: DanTDM (£2.1million), English video gamer, and jacksepticeye (£1.4million), Irish vlogger.
The list was put together using a Sellfly "YouTube money calculator" tool that estimates someone's ad revenue by counting their monthly views with YouTube's average ad payout (between 20p and £3.29 per 1,000 views).

PewDiePie rightfully tops the list with his nearly a 100million following. He earns his monthly revenue of £5.6million selling branded t-shirts, hats and other merchandise that can be found on his personal website. Apart from this, Felix makes about £935,263 from ads shown over his YouTube videos. All in all, this brings his monthly revenue to an estimated £6.5million, or £78.9million per year.
