When do you send the info about how many plays a song has to the royalty distributors. Distrokid says it takes about 2-3 months sometimes shorter but i refuse to think that could possibly be true.

Hey @DaddyFayke, thanks for coming to the Spotify Community!

 

The reason it takes 2-3 months to get your money from your tracks on Spotify through DistroKid (or any other distributor, for that matter) is because first Spotify has to compile their data and figure out how much you get, then they send it to your distributor, and then your distributor needs to sort through it all itself before sending it to you.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience! Happy listening :)

Will it always be 2-3 months or will it take less sometimes? @jacob
