What is a Track?
“Track” is the term we use to classify our different subscription genres. Currently, we have Rap & Hip-Hop, Classics, and Essentials as track types. You can select any of these tracks to be your main subscription as well.
What are Add-on Tracks?
In addition to primary Tracks, members can also subscribe to additional, add-on Tracks of different genres. Each additional add-on subscriptions has a set price of $23, and will renew on a monthly basis. Add-ons can be removed at anytime, and can be swapped as well.
How do I change my Track?
If you like to hop between Tracks, remember you can Swap for any current ROTMs from all 3 Tracks, which allows you the flexibility of all three Tracks without having to change your membership. If you do, however, find yourself leaning towards one of the others Tracks overall, it’s easy to change your primary Track.
Log into your account and head to your membership page. In the left column, you’ll see your current primary Track. To change it, just click the blue ‘edit’ link (as seen in the screenshot below).
You will be sent to the Track management page, where you can choose from your available tracks (i.e. Tracks you are not currently subscribed to).
Just like Swaps, your Track selection must be made before the first of the month for the change to take effect. You cannot have multiples of the same Track offered. All three Tracks have the ability to Swap from the same set of options.
Note: If you have already made a Swap for this month’s Track, you’ll have to wait until this month’s order processes to change your primary Track.
How do I add additional Tracks to my account?
You can add additional Tracks from your membership page.
If the Announce window is open (The next month’s records are announced, but your order has not processed yet), you can add Tracks to this month’s order. You’ll do so by locating the ‘Add-on a Track’ section towards the bottom of the right side of the page and click the ‘add’ button on the Track(s) of your choice. You’ll now be receiving that Track as well for the month, and can see billing and edit details in the left column. That’s it!
If the Announce window is closed (This month’s order is now processing, but next month has not been announced yet), you can add Tracks to kick off next month. You’ll do so by locating the ‘Coming next month’ section towards the bottom of the right side of the page and clicking the ‘add’ button on the Track(s) of your choice. You’ll be set to receive that Track starting next month and can see billing and edit details in the left column.
How do I remove add-on Tracks from my account?
To remove, just click to blue ‘edit’ link on the add-on Track of your choice from the left column.
Click ‘remove’ from the pop-up window. If this change is made during the Announce window, your change will be immediate. If it’s made after that window, it will take effect the following month.
