What is SoundCloud Premier?

SoundCloud Premier is SoundCloud's direct monetization program for independent songwriters and/or creators of original music!

Previously this service was invite only, but in October of 2018, SoundCloud decided to allow any SoundCloud Pro and Pro Unlimited subscriber to be able to participate in their Premier service. The benefit of this is that original content creators now have the opportunity to monetize content on the platform without having to go through a distributor.

Please note that if you use their free service to upload your work you are not eligible for SoundCloud Premier, but may be able to still monetize via a distributor like Distrokid.
