Here is a video by NFX at Warbeats.com sharing problems he has had in the past with SoundClick.com.
It’s some what of a personal rant, but he shares some potential problems you may come across with using the music selling website.
Complaints with SoundClick
- The SoundClick website is outdated
- Their traffic is going down
- Complaints in music forums that they don’t support music producers well
- Poor customer service complaints
Here is another users experience I found on the Future Producers Forum.
If you’re thinking about using SoundClick for selling beats, think again. This is what they did to their #1 user who brought SoundClick tens of thousands of dollars and over 100 million song plays.
“I’m the owner of Anno Domini Beats and have been a SoundClick member for 10 years, gaining over 100 million song plays and sending the majority of their traffic to the site. I have earned them tens of thousands of dollars up until now. Over the past few days SoundClick proceeded to first delete 325 beats randomly from my page because I complained about them never replying to my support emails. They then shut down my second SoundClick page when I complained about that, and now they have also shut down my main Anno Domini Beats page when I asked for a refund for the VIP services and promotion I had already paid on the deleted account. Still not a single email back from them. They have also blocked me from posting on the forum, blocked me from contacting MY OWN mailing list, and blocked me on Facebook because I tried to contact them privately to resolve the matter. If you need any more proof that SoundClick is a scam site there you go! If you’re sick of SoundClick treating its users like crap, sick of a website that hasn’t been updated in 10 years and moderators that hate Hip Hop musicians and producers, then join me in leaving the website. There are so many better options out there like Soundcloud, YouTube, Music Centro, Beat Stars etc.
