How Spotify Sells Your Music
Spotify sells your music via:
Spotify provides on-demand streaming access to your music through an application. Users can choose either a free, ad-funded version or a subscription option for ad-free listening and access to Spotify on their mobile phones.
Important: The displayed play count for a specific track on Spotify is aggregated from identical versions of the same track. In other words, the play count for a track that appears on multiple releases on Spotify may be higher than the streams reported in your Trend and Sales Reports.
Downloads are no longer available in Spotify. However, any gift cards that were previously purchased are still being honored.
Pay Rate (How Much Spotify Pays You)
*Downloads are no longer available in Spotify. However, any gift cards that were previously purchased are still being honored.
For songs streamed, Spotify has deals with necessary rights holders in all of its launch countries. Spotify and these rights holders have agreed upon a royalty based on how frequently your music is played. Each stream earns you a share of Spotify's advertising revenue. The actual amount varies and depends on the ratio of advertising revenue and your percentage of the total number of streams on Spotify in a given month.
NOTE: Spotify displays any releases that have 5 songs or less and are under 30 minutes in total length, in the "Singles" section of their store. For more information, please readthis article.
