  • Keep 100% royalties & rights
  • Access to Badenstock Music industry tools

Your music will be available on 220+ streaming platforms & stores, including 48 main ones. Check out more details Here

Log in to the Badenstock Distribution Platform and go to the ‘Balance’ tab. There, you can see real-time information about your streaming revenue. To request a payout, use the ‘Request Outpayment‘ button.

Before doing so, please ensure that your PayPal account details are set in your profile settings.

You will see our service when royalties accrue to your account. You can request payment on the site, and the payment date is always the last day of the month.

Depending on your choice, either to an IBAN bank account or to a PayPal account.

Unfortunately, money transfers always cost money and we can’t control that. A one-time fee of USD 5.95 + 2% of the payment amount is charged for the withdrawal.

You can request payment if your royalty account balance is more than 25 USD.

A good guideline is 3 weeks, so that you can, for example, pitch a song on Spotify’s Artists service.

You must comply with the laws of your own country. In several countries, you are obliged to inform the tax authorities that you have received income from abroad. Ask your country’s tax authorities about it. In any case, you are responsible for the taxes.

You may ask yourself, did you deserve them? Our service is only intended to reach the right audience.

You can publish as much music as you want, even up to 1000 tracks, over the years, as our service is intended for regular use and not for any ambiguous activities, etc., although there’s no limit. Songs can be uploaded limitlessly.

Unfortunately you don’t. We only accept music files.

Distribution plan allows uploads to one artist profile, but if you want to publish music by several artists, contact our customer service
