- Who Uses Songtrust
*If you are with CD Baby and use their publishing services (CD Baby Pro), then you cannot also use Songtrust. This is also the case if you are already with another publishing administrator.
Songtrust collects from a wide range of revenue sources that follow their own timeline. Once you sign up and have accrued royalties that are ready for collection, it will take an average of 9-12 months to be fully registered globally and receive your first royalty payment. Once we start receiving royalties, you’ll receive earnings at the end of each quarter so long as you hit our $25 minimum.
Please note: Some societies prioritize their payouts based on total earnings. Make sure you have everything you need to start collecting by downloading our Music Royalties Checklist.
We charge a one-time fee of $100 per writer to cover song monitoring and admin costs and take a 15% commission on any royalties collected on your behalf.
“As a self-released artist, some royalties out there are wildly difficult to collect. Songtrust collect(s) those royalties that would’ve never found their way to me. It’s also allowed me to continue to write with artists all over the world and know that Songtrust will chase the funds that come from that work.”
