Private Links
To monetize a private link, please clear the track as normal, omitting the private code at the end of the link. Please then contact to confirm you’ve done this, otherwise the link could get lost in the system.
By clearing your private link, your track will be monetizing from the first play, however it will appear as “X” days old on your page. For example, if the track has been private for 9 days, it will appear as 9 days old from day 1 of it being public.
