SoundCloud Premier monetization pays you for streams generated after signing your SoundCloud Premier agreement and enabling monetization on your tracks.
Once you have selected monetization and you see the blue $ sign, your tracks are monetizing.
Streams that happened before joining the program and enabling monetization are not counted.
However, you can start monetizing your older work straight away by following these steps:
- Go to your Tracks
- Select all tracks that are currently monetizing through SoundCloud Premier
- Click 'Edit Tracks' and select 'Monetization'
- Make sure that your metadata is correct and click 'Enable Monetization'
- Click 'Save'
