UnitedMasters does not automatically monetize your music on SoundCloud. SELECT members have the following options to monetize their music on SoundCloud through UnitedMasters:
- UnitedMasters can deliver your release to SoundCloud and collect your royalties for you, like we do with other music services.
- If you have already uploaded your music to SoundCloud, UnitedMasters can manually monetize your uploads and collect your royalties for you.
If you are a UnitedMasters SELECT member and you would like us to monetize your music on SoundCloud, please submit a request for support with the subject "SoundCloud Monetization Request".
Our team usually processes these requests within 1-2 days after you fill out the request form. However, SoundCloud's team can take some additional time to complete delivery on their end. In general, you can expect to see your releases on SoundCloud within 5-7 days of the submission, but this can vary.
SoundCloud Profiles: Auto-Created vs. Self-Created
- Auto-Created SoundCloud profiles:
- When you submit a SoundCloud monetization request with us, you will see a section where we ask for your SoundCloud profile page so we can ensure your releases get mapped correctly. However, if you do not have an existing SoundCloud profile, SoundCloud will auto-create one for you after we submit your monetization request!
- When you request an auto-created profile from SoundCloud, the page is created and your releases will be delivered there. After the page is created for you, our team will then be able to add your email address to the account. This will trigger a verification email to you and give you access to control the account.
- Self-Created SoundCloud profiles:
- In most cases, artists will already have a SoundCloud profile that they created themselves. This is a SoundCloud profile that you created on www.soundcloud.com in their normal profile creation/sign-up flow.
Please note: if you are eligible for SoundCloud Premier, you can always monetize your music on SoundCloud yourself without involvement from UnitedMasters.
