TunesCore Payments for Spotify Streams
« on: July 28, 2014, 10:52:28 AM »
I've released my first album on Spotify via TunesCore 7 weeks ago and couldn't find any details on when I can expect payments.
Their site says that there is a delay of 2 months. Does this mean that my balance will update daily after  next week?

Also, is there any difference between spotify and other streaming services like deezer? Will I get detailed streaming stats and payments after 2 months as well?

Never heard of Spotify.  Never heard of Tunecore 1 or 7.  Of course Im almost 51 years old so Im easily dismissible.

Eugor Im touched that you consider this forum Spotify savvy...perhaps someone will assist you in your customer support.

Your being Funny..... right, because no one makes any money on this forum through ambient music.

Eugor - there's a fairly long wait between release and payments flowing in...  usually 3 months to 6 months depending on service.  Also - unless you get a seriously massive amount of plays on spotify - expect payments to be very small.  Spotify barely pays. 

iTunes and Bandcamp sales seem to have the most traction.

Here's a rundown of my payments ... took 9 months to hit my $50 threshhold - this is from CD Baby.

John said 'Spotify barely pays' and while that's true, they do pay and that amount is on the increase. Through CDBaby it takes months for royalties to come through, a lot of these distribution outfits really do pay nothing ! iTunes does the most.
Bandcamp is a different thing really.

I think Spotify would prefer to pay less.  I know Pandora is still trying to get their amount lowered.  Sam at Projekt has decided to pull all Projekt albums off Spotify.  Trying to follow what Rusty at SomaFM and other internet broadcasters go through to keep going is amazing. It seems to be every attempt by any artist to get around the major system - is blocked.  At current issue is ISRC codes in mp3's - new legislation is on the table to require stations to report it - yet Rusty's got a massive library with no ISRC codes in the mp3's.

I've moved from CD Baby to a company called Indigoboom for digital distro - I just haven't had anything new to release.  (which has been a very long time now...)

In respect of Spotify....

As a user, I have found it to be excellent. I have been amazed at the amount of ambient, electronic, prog rock and music for my tastes that are on there. I though it would be more for the younger generation and thus full of utter pish music  ;) This is not the case.

I use it to stream on the higher quality setting which I believe is 256kbs , might be 320, and the quality is not too bad at all. Whether over the PC and cambridge PC speakers or through my ipod into the main hifi.

Whilst it would appear income from plays may be on the low side I have found myself buying several CDs and downloads as a result of researching on Spotify. So perhaps that should also be considered, ie a way to showcase ones music also generating sales. Off course there is no way to quantify that.

Personally I think Spotify is superb.
