Fees / Shares
Of course, service isn’t free, and this marks the most obvious difference between the providers. Each one has its own pricing model. Our aim was to offer a good music distribution service in exchange for a six-pack of beer and a pizza. Everybody should be able to afford it and thereby make a much bigger profit from the actual sale of the music. Nevertheless, we can also make your personal dream deal a reality – more on this subject later.
Pay attention to additional costs as well. They are often hidden away in the Terms and Conditions or much too high. To sell your music, you need certain codes for the identification of a product (GTIN, EAN, UPC, ISRC), or sometimes you no longer want to offer an album for sale (takedown). All of this should ALWAYS be free and inclusive.
Paying out up to 100 % of the net income only works when you have your own contracts with the stores, which is why we only have direct contracts and have developed our own technology. So firstly, we offer the technology and the contracts of a content aggregator, and secondly, we offer the services and the customer service of a music distributor. By doing so, the number of people and companies who want their share of the revenue is reduced to a minimum – only the store takes its share. However, many providers perform their service via other distributors and aggregators, who, of course, want payment for their service too. This leads to a very bad average profit for the artist. Here is an example:
