Reporting and Payment Schedule
We aim to report all sales on the 20th of the third month following the download/stream. For example, sales that occurred in January will be reported on the 20th of April. 3 months are currently necessary to collect and process all reports from digital services:
Month 1: Music fans download and stream your music
Month 2: The music service collates the data and creates reports to send us
Month 3: We process and check the data to create the reports we send you
It is important to note that some digital services send us quarterly sales reports. In that case January sales will be reported along with February and March sales on the 20th of June.
We are working on reducing the processing time.
Older sales might be included in your monthly reports if the digital service failed to deliver a valid report and payment on time.
Although unusual, a small number of sales may be delayed due to technical difficulties with processing the data. If this happens, sales will still be reported but in the next reporting cycle and we will explain the delay.
Links to download your digital sales reports will be emailed on the 20th of every month. The first report is a summary of all your sales, including top artists, services, countries and labels. The second report is an excel file detailing all your streams/downloads.
