CD Baby or TuneCore?

Five reasons to choose CD Baby:

  1. No annual fees (which can really get costly the more music you release). You can relax knowing we’ll never pull your albums offline just because you don’t want to pay another $50 out-of-pocket every year to keep your music selling.
  2. CD Baby helps you tap into every major music revenue stream, including:

    CD Baby Pro Publishing Administration is available in numerous countries and territories.
    See the current list where CD Baby Publishing is available here.

  3. If you ever have questions, our customer service team is always happy to talk or chat. Check out our Help Center.
  4. We’ll give you the tools you need to promote and sell your music:
    • Show.co – Get FREE access to the same music marketing tools used by the major labels.
    • Trending Reports and Analytics – View your streaming and download activity from Spotify and iTunes in real-time.
  5. We’ve been helping musicians get paid (weekly) since 1998.
