How much money does a play make on music streaming services? (2020)

How much a single play earns on music streaming services depends on a great deal. Here’s a rough guide to streaming royalties in 2020.

A single stream of a track can be worth a very different amount depending on a lot of factors like; what service was it played on, which country the listener is in, whether they’ve paid to listen or are using an ad-supported service – and even more.

As such we can’t say exactly what each store pays out per stream but we can take a close estimate at what you’re likely to get for each play of a song.
