- How can I get an update as to how my label is selling?
Using our “Music Manager Tool” you can see the amount of sales and royaltyies of every quarter. The sales showed are GROSS before our fees, store fees, voided transactions, mechanical withholdings, and any additional processing fees and are only from retailer partners that report the sales. No distribution company is able to provide actual sales data for each and every partner out there on a daily or even weekly basis simply because not all partners provide the information for distribution companies to be able to pass down to you. Some stores work with 1, 2 and several with 3 months of delay, and what you sell will be reflected in the next pay period.
