Partners (such as iTunes) normally release their official sales 45 days after the close of every month. Once we receive these reports RouteNote then adds the sales statistics to your account. For example, if you sell a track in May then iTunes wont release their report until 15th July at the earliest. Once sent to RouteNote then we input stats straight away.
We are pleased to announce that as of 01 August 2009 RouteNote.com will be able to provide all clients from all territories ISRCs and UPCs, saving up to $75 for some users!Just follow upload instructions for code issuing!
A UPC is very similar to an ISRC. Whereas an ISRC is a virtually embeded code, a UPC is a physical bar code used for the whole album/collection of songs. UPCs are found on anything for sale, in shops, supermarkets etc.
An ISRC is a code that gets embeded as data into your song, it works as virtual identification and is a bit like a bar code. Without an ISRC your song could played for free in areas which would otherwise entitle you to royalties.
