The eligibility requirement for monetization is 5,000 real plays in the past month. I have 9,000 real plays in the past 30 days. I haven't bought them or anything. When I clicked the monetization link it said I wasn't eligible yet. I don't have any copyright strikes so I'm not sure why I can't monetize. My account kinda blew up a little this past month and it would be nice to monetize.

It looks like this has by now been sorted. More information about the requirements are available here: https://creators.soundcloud.com/guide
