Hi Julian,

We currently don't offer a way for everyone to monetize their tracks directly off SoundCloud, so you might need to set up a different service to sell your track and have the money donated automatically. However, you can choose to upload your track to SoundCloud so that your listeners can stream the track. You can also put a "buy" button under the waveform and have it linked to an alternate service. Our Pro & Pro Unlimited user can choose for the buy button to say something different. So, for instance, you could have it say "donate" instead of "buy".

Other then that, we are working hard to scale our business quickly, and as we expand the offering, you will be able to find details on our blog: http://blog.soundcloud.com and http://on.soundcloud.com.

I've done this but can't see how the 'donate-or' can download the track from the Soundcloud site as I intend to do.
Thanks
