You’ll receive a share of revenue based on plays in eligible countries. That means that plays used to calculate payments will differ from the total plays you see in the app. You can make sure you have monetization enabled by checking in the respective track’s settings.
With fan-powered royalties, you’re paid fairly based on the dedicated fans who stream your music. This is an industry-leading payout model that is more equitable and transparent than other music streaming services. Money from fans who stream your music goes to you, and not into a pool for other artists.
Please note, any money earned on tracks that have been distributed to SoundCloud via a label or distributor will be subject to your label or distributor deal, and should appear in your regular royalty statements from the label or distributor.
