There is no other further speculation on what PewDiePie's possible CPM is, but according to PR Week's 2019 article about PewDiePie, Sellfy's self-proclaimed "YouTube Money Calculator," PewDiePie earns around six million from selling merchandise.

With the possibility of the above pay per minute, by diving the amount by one thousand views, PewDiePie's CPM or plainly speaking, pay per view per minute, is around thirty dollars. Along with regular advertisements on PewDiePie's videos, he earns between two to ten percent revenue from that as well.

In a video from April 2020, PewDiePie googled himself and went over the results. When the first result came up as PewDiePie's net worth being forty million, the YouTuber brushed off the statement before holding his hands out as if someone were to put money in his hand.

"Obviously I'm not going to talk about money and how much money I make, but 40 million? Come on."

Later in the video, he states: "How much do you think ad revenue is?"
