How and When Do I Get Paid?

Click the "bank" tab to see how much you've earned. When you're owed money, you will be asked to specify your payout preference (PayPal, ACH, wire transfer, etc.)

Your money will be sent, via your chosen method, within the next 1-14 days.

Sales reports and payments are available to you based on when DistroKid receives sales numbers and earnings from stores. Stores usually deliver these reports monthly, and they reflect sales from about 3 months ago. So a song you sold yesterday won't be reflected for about 3 months. That's how long it takes before stores send us (or any distributor) the information. 

Each store & streaming service delivers reports & payments on their own schedule. So, for example, you likely won't receive updated iTunes & Spotify numbers on the same day. Same thing goes for different distributors--if you have other music online via a distributor other than DistroKid, that distributor may reflect your Spotify (and so on) numbers before or after DistroKid does. We're usually first!  But not always.
