Music streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Tidal, and Amazon don’t have a fixed “pay-per-stream” rate when it comes to paying out music royalties to artists.
There are lots of factors that affect how much money one stream is worth in royalties. The main factors include:
- The listener's country and location
- Whether the listener has a paid subscription or free account
- The specific artist’s royalty rate
- The relative pricing & currency in different regions
This makes things complicated when trying to predict what you'll earn in streaming royalties. It's just about impossible to accurately calculate exactly how much you’ll make from a certain number of streams, as all these factors need to be taken into account.
Please also keep in mind that most stores require a minimum amount of streams to be reached before royalties even start to be collected.
Indiefy collects stream income from all platforms for you. In this process, you will retain 85% of your royalties.
