Tunecore sadly doesn’t provide instant access to Spotify Artists, and I chose it as well for my first few songs since it had been recommended to me many times by friends.
Just go to artists.spotify.com and claim your profile. I just submitted mine and am waiting for verification, will notice everyone here.
The pdf isnt avalible
To get a verified artist profile just request access to Spotify for Artists.
Once your request is granted, your artist profile gets the verified check mark and you’ll have access to a dashboard of listening data! You’ll also be able to manage your profile’s images, story, and more.
I have tried to click onto the link for spotify artist but the message is 'something went wrong'
