I need to contact another YouTuber for a business purpose.

But this YouTuber doesn’t have anything in their “About” section (no Business Inquiry Email). And YouTube removed the “About > Send Message” button 6 months ago.

And I already know about "Friends". But to do that, you have to (somehow) send the YouTuber a hyperlink "invitation" - and so I come back to my original problem.

And I know I can already leave a comment, but I don’t want to do that. They might not see it and also, it’s public.

They are not showing any kind of social media links or anything like that. So, how can I contact another YouTuber?

I'm a Premium member. I know there is something called a Partner account, and a Creator account. I'm wondering if me having one of those would make any difference.

simply put, you can't contact such user who didn't provide Business Inquiry Email

Send & receive messages

As of July 9, 2018, the ability to send, receive, or read private messages in Creator Studio is no longer available. We made this change because this feature was not widely used, and will allow us to focus on the features and tools that matter most to you. All private messages have therefore been deleted from Creator Studio and anywhere else on YouTube.

Business Inquiry Emails You can still receive and send email messages to fellow users on the platform using Business Inquiry Emails (visible on Desktop only) when provided by the channel owner on the "About" tab of their channel.

If a Business Inquiry Email is provided, select "View Email Address". If you don’t see a Business Inquiry Email, that means that the channel owner didn’t provide one.
