Monetize your SoundCloud tracks
Once the track(s) that you want to monetize have been approved and your SoundCloud channel(s) have been connected to your RouteNote account it’s time to make it happen. Head to your SoundCloud home on RouteNote and you’ll see a list of your tracks which are eligible for monetization.
Paste the URL of your track as it appears on SoundCloud next to where it appears on your RouteNote management page. If your track hasn’t been released yet you can still monetize it in advance. Simply take the link and paste it into your RouteNote management page as usual but remove the secret extension for the URL. These will be random characters after the track name.
