    They do it automatically via electronic payment.

    They get the money from being part of the same corporation (Google) that's also home to one of the world's largest online advertising platforms (AdWords + AdSense).

    The money comes from companies and individuals paying for advertising through Google AdWords, with display ads (banner ads like on the side of the webpages both on YouTube + the similar one on the right side menu here on Yahoo Answers).... and also the video adverts that cut in at various points through the video content you watch on YouTube (e.g. for things like Grammerly, and various others).
