When and how do I get paid?


You’ll receive your earnings with a delay of 2-4 months. That means: If you release a song in January, you’ll receive your earnings from this song between March and May. The stores take time to pay the artists / distributors, that’s why it takes that long. We only pay our artists through PayPal.
