Stores pay out between 6 weeks and 6 months after the month your music is streamed or downloaded.
The moment we get the payments from the stores you will see your royalties in the app and you can withdraw 100% of the money earned to your PayPal account. You can withdraw your money when you have a minimum of $10.
All of the global stores have different payment processes - the only consistent part of the process is that the day we receive the money it will be shown in the app and you can request the onward payment to you when it's $10 or more.
The best of the global stores pay out 30 days after the 15th day of the month after the download or stream.
Best example: If your song is downloaded or streamed any time between 1st and 31st of May - a payment will be made 30 days after the 22nd June. Therefore the money will be visible in the app on 22nd July.
The worst of the stores pay out twice per year, 90 days after the end of the 6 month period.
Worst example: If your song is downloaded or streamed any time between 1st May and 30th October - a payment will be made 90 days after 30th October. Therefore the money will be visible in the app on 30th January.
We are working hard to encourage the slow paying stores to speed up their payment processes.
