What is RouteNote?

Is RouteNote really free?

Yep! For absolutely no money, we can help you distribute your music online. Our Free Distribution model has zero fees or recurring costs, while artists keep 85% of the revenue. Our Premium Distribution model costs a small fee upfront and annual payment, while the artists keep 100% of the revenue.

Is RouteNote safe?

Yes! We don’t require any personal details when you sign up to RouteNote, just a username, email address and password. As there are no unfront costs with Free releases, you don’t need to input any payment details. For Premium releases or should you decide to switch from Free to Premium, payment is securely managed via PayPal or Stripe. Once your release starts earning revenue, you can link a PayPal or bank account to your RouteNote profile to transfer funds.

How long does RouteNote take to upload?

We aim for RouteNote moderation times to take around 72 hours for initial submission. Please note that this can be delayed during times of high demand.

Once your release has been approved, presuming you haven’t sent a sales start date, our stores will get your release live in 48 hours to 2 weeks. Our larger stores such as Spotify and Apple Music will normally upload your release within 5 days of approval.
