How does Spotify pay?
You will be paid a streaming fee for the use of the sound recording whenever your tracks are streamed. The more your music is played, the more money you make. If you write original music, each stream will also generate publishing and mechanical royalties. Publishing royalties can be collected via a publishing administration service or by affiliating with a performing rights organization in your country of residence, such as ASCAP or BMI in the US. Mechanical royalties for the US territory can be collected by affiliating with The MLC or adding CDB Boost to your distribution! With CDB Boost we’ll work with The MLC to get you paid your mechanical royalties!
