SoundCloud has been one of many platforms offering resources to support artists during the pandemic. As the return of live shows continues to be unknown, many independent artists, among many in the industry, are immensely feeling the financial impact.
A recent addition to SoundCloud’s Keep the Music Going online resource center is a new feature to be added to artists’ profiles. Fans will now have the option to donate directly or purchase from an artist’s Kickstarter, Bandcamp, Patreon, PayPal and more. The platform has stated to never take a cut of the proceeds.
“We’ve built this feature to help creators impacted by the COVID-19 virus and will keep it active as long as we’re all in this so you can fund your projects, offset bills, or get whatever you need to stay on your feet,” states SoundCloud.
