How Music Island Sells Your Music
Does Music Island sell your music via?:
Pay Rate (How Much Music Island Pays You)
Downloads are available through a selection of Music Island's partners. Payouts are based on territory specific rates, so for songs downloaded individually in a store, you will be paid the wholesale price of Music Island's retail price calculated on terms set out in TuneCore's blanket agreement with the store.
When a subscriber streams your music, you get paid a proportionate share of Music Island's subscription revenue per month calculated on terms set out in TuneCore's blanket agreement with the store (this usually excludes streams during a subscriber's free trial). Payments will fluctuate each month, depending on the amount of subscription revenue generated and how often your music was streamed.
GOOD TO KNOW: We've built our TuneCore Music Publishing Administration to get songwriters (the person or entity that controls the copyright to the lyrics and melody of the composition) all their royalties from sales and use of their compositions around the world. To learn more about the additional separate royalties you earn as a Songwriter, see our Publishing Administration Help section.
