Want to sell or stream your music on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and more? Think Like a Label dug into the most popular services, including Tunecore, CD Baby, Nimbit, Reverbnation, Songcast, and ONErpm, to see what each would cost to distribute 1 release. FYI, many of these companies offer additional services, including additional music stores in multiple countries, which are included in these prices. That said, if basic distribution to the major online stores (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, eMusic, Rhapsody, etc) is your goal, this is what it’s going to cost you. This guide is simply meant to be a jump off point, it is up to you to determine which one is right for you, so do your research!
Update: Ahh! – A diligent reader pointed out in the comments that ONErpm actually takes a 10% cut from some of it’s outlets, including iTunes and eMusic. My apologies for missing that. It also does not distribute to Amazon or Rhapsody.
Do you have any experiences with these services, good or bad? Please let us know in the comments!
