Hi @Nemrud ! :)

Since Spotify is a music streaming service, every song streamed for over 30 seconds counts as a play - which is then converted into a royalty payment.
If you are an artist on Spotify, or interested in becoming one, I highly recommend you check out their FAQ for Artists.

Hope this helps and have an amazing day! :D

1. Can you explain more detailed please, u didnt mention how album sales work or if you could sell more than 1 song or album by the same spotify account...... 

 

2. Also, will these count in best selling album or song in the year?

Since a couple of years ago, the RIAA changed the way how albums sales are counted by also counting streams.

 

I think around 150 streams of a song counts as one sale of the song and if 1500 people playing one album ,it counts as 1 sale of the album.

 

I hope it makes a little sense.
