Having the same problem. The plays are registering within SCM but don't show up in Soundclouds stats.

Hey

This is odd though. Typically when plays are not working with SCM an error displays. The plays do appear to be working with SCM, just very few are actually showing up.

today I've received an email from soundcloud.
They presented their new system of "monetizing tracks on soundcloud"
that seems to be launched today.

here is the info about the new system:
https://creators.soundcloud.com/guide? ... 3700797402

they write:
Who can monetize with SoundCloud Premier
> Do you qualify?
> Humans are listening to your tracks (bot streams will not be counted)


That means that they've introduced a new system that allows artists to earn money for plays.
So maybe they've toughen their check if generated plays are human or generated by bots.
I guess they necessarily want to avoid now to pay for bot-plays

The SoundCloud Premier Program has been ongoing for a while now, this is not new. Anyone can apply for the program and it takes a while for them to accept or decline the applicant.

I am a little concern though that there is something more to this than it typically is. We will have to wait for Martin to get back to us.

EDIT: You are correct, they have opened up the Premier to a larger audience on SoundCloud.
