Sell Music on iTunes

Start selling your music in the world’s most popular music store

iTunes Logo

iTunes™ sells more music than all other digital retailers combined. When you sign up with CD Baby, your music can be available for download in the iTunes Store in a few days. It can also be available in Apple Music, a companion service to iTunes offering interactive music streaming to subscribers. If your songs aren’t available for download in the iTunes Store and streaming via Apple Music, you’re missing out on music revenue.

CD Baby is a preferred Apple content provider, meaning that once your music is approved for distribution and all the product information complies with Apple’s standards, it will be available on iTunes (and Apple Music — if you’ve opted to distribute your music to streaming services) in just a few days.

We’ll also pay you royalties from iTunes Match, iTunes Radio, and provide weekly trending reports so you can see when and where your music is selling. Best of all, when you sell with CD Baby, you never have to worry about monthly or yearly fees.

Free weekly iTunes trending reports

You can download your trending iTunes sales information anytime within your CD Baby account. Get weekly updates with data about where and when people have bought your music from iTunes. This is especially useful if you want to see how a recent tour or promotional campaign is affecting sales.

Make money from iTunes Match

As a CD Baby artist, whenever your music is “matched” (added to someone’s music collection in the cloud), you will receive a per-play royalty based on both streams and re-downloads. It’s like getting paid multiple times for a single purchase. Not a bad perk!

iTunes Pre-Sales

An iTunes pre-sale is an optional feature you can use to sell and promote your newest album on iTunes prior to your actual release date. Fans can pre-order your music and then automatically receive their purchase on the release date. (Note: You must submit your music for distribution at least 7 days before your release date to be eligible.)

Get paid for iTunes Radio play

With iTunes Radio, your existing fans can create customizable radio stations based around your music — and you’ll get paid for every play. Plus, you’ll have a great opportunity to make new fans when your songs are recommended to iTunes Radio listeners. All songs played on iTunes Radio can be directly purchased and downloaded via iTunes.
