How much does music distribution cost?
Nothing! RouteNote believes artists shouldn’t have to pay a penny upfront when distributing their music to stores and streaming services.
There’s a reason why over half a million unsigned artists and labels choose RouteNote every time to send their music to stores and streaming services. Easy distribution, simple pricing, fast publishing, clear statistics, monthly payments, handy support, social media monetization, free marketing tools, and more, all make RouteNote the perfect choice for so many musicians.
Upload your music to RouteNote, tick the stores, streaming services and social media platform you’d like to send your music to, and choose between Free Distribution and Premium Distribution. Our moderation team check every release that comes in. We aim for this to happen within 72 hours, but this can extend during busy periods. Once approved, your release will start appearing on stores within the week.
RouteNote distributes music to Spotify, YouTube Music, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon Music, Deezer, TIDAL and many more. We can also monetize your content on social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, SoundCloud and TikTok.
RouteNote’s Free Distribution is free of all fees and recurring costs – artists keep 85% of the royalties. RouteNote’s Premium Distribution is a small fee and recurring cost – artists keep 100% of the royalties. You can switch between Free and Premium or vice versa, at anytime. All features and stores are the same between the tiers. It really is that simple!
Statistics and earnings hit your RouteNote account every month, giving you a detailed breakdown of exactly how many purchases and streams, of each release, lead to how much in royalties. Funds can be withdrawn to a PayPal or bank account.
