Pay rate

Paid Streams: When a subscriber streams your music, you get paid a proportionate share of Boomplay’s subscription revenue per month, calculated based on terms set out in our platforms’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.

Paid Downloads: Downloads are available through Boomplay. Payouts are based on territory-specific rates, so for songs downloaded individually, you will be paid the wholesale price of Boomplay’s retail price, calculated based on terms set out in our platforms’s blanket agreement with the store.
