How much will it cost for distribution?
It's pretty simple. Our standard package, which includes all major download and streaming platforms worldwide will cost you just $8 for a single $14 for an EP and $40 USD for an album. You then need to pay a yearly subscription fee of distribution only 12 months after uploading.
How do I get paid?
Most stores report sales on a monthly basis. At this point you can see a complete breakdown by release, track, territory, platform and more in the Sales area. Labels, you can also download an xls sheet for each release to give to your artists.
You can then withdraw the funds into any specified bank or PayPal account from the Money section of your dashboard

This one's easy: Firstly, we provide cheaper distribution to more places than Tunecore and Ditto. Also, we never charge a commission.
Apart from that, we don't just sell your music. We give you the tools and services to develop your career. We are your record label, not a digital truck driver. That's why we put on countless gigs for our artists at events like ALL ACCESS, The Good News Music Showcase.
Why pay for chart registration, isn't every release chart eligible?
Being ‘chart eligible’ and being 'chart registered' are two different things. Here's how it works:
Every day stores report your music sales to the chart company in country the music is sold (OCC, Nielsen, etc.), but if you are not registered with the chart companies then they will simply ignore your sales. If you're not chart registered you could sell 10,000 copies and never make the charts. What a waste!
