What is a browser extension?
YouTube video date extension

A browser extension (sometimes called a plug-in or add-on) is installed inside your web browser and you'll normally see its unique icon displayed in the top right of the browser window like in the screenshot above.

Extensions add new functionality to particular websites when you visit them. When you browse YouTube with the Show YouTube Video Upload Date extension installed, the extension finds text for relative dates beside videos and seamlessly replaces them with full dates.

"Been using the extension for a while and the extra $1 for the time on the date just makes it really useful as I use it for screen grabbing to collate data for marketing research"

How the paid upgrade works

After you sign up for a subscription using the link in the extension popup, you will receive an email from payment processor Stripe with a Receipt Number.

Click the YouTube date extension Show YouTube Video Upload Date icon at the top of the browser, enter the Receipt Number into the popup window and press Validate.

It could take a few minutes for your Receipt Number to be added so if it shows an error, please retry after a few minutes.

You will be sent a new receipt for every monthly payment, but you don't have to keep re-entering the new Receipt Numbers. Your extension will be kept in a validated state automatically.
