Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs

Do you really offer free music distribution services? What's the catch?

keyboard_arrow_down

There's no catch whatsoever. We offer 100% free music distribution service. No hidden or upgrade fees. In fact, we will never ask for your credit card or try to deduct any fees from the royalties we collect on your behalf.

Does the artist or rights holder maintain their Master rights?

keyboard_arrow_down

Yes. If you're an artist or a Master rights holder, you will retain 100% ownership of your rights.

Do you only distribute and collect from online streaming apps and stores?

keyboard_arrow_down

Yes, we only distribute to and collect royalty revenue from online streaming stores on your behalf.

What online music streaming apps and stores do you work with?

keyboard_arrow_down

We distribute your music to all the major streaming stores including Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Deezer, Prime Music, and 120 more.

How are you able to offer free music distribution? How do you make money?

keyboard_arrow_down

We don't charge the artists to distribute music or to process their royalty revenue. Our business generates money by allowing music investors to invest in your music (with your approval of course!) and we make money by charging these investors fees to invest and access our music royalties marketplace.

Do you charge any fees for depositing royalties to my bank account?

keyboard_arrow_down

No, we don't charge for that service. It's completely free to use.

Do you offer royalty splits? Is it free?

keyboard_arrow_down

Yes, we offer automated royalty splits on a track by track basis. We don't charge any fees to use this service. You can invite as many collaborators as you want.

Can I stop using your services at any time?

keyboard_arrow_down

While that would make us really sad, you can stop using our services at any time. There are no minimum commitments to using our distribution services. Just make sure you move out all of your music to the distributor you are moving to (if you already have music distributed through us). Our support team can help you with moving out when needed.

Can I start by distributing just a few of my songs with you?

keyboard_arrow_down

You can choose to distribute as little as one song if you wish. We're not pushy. A lot of artists start testing us out using one song. Then they end up moving their entire catalog. It's really up to you.
