Amazon Music Distribution Explained

Can I put my own music on Amazon?

Yes! Uploading music to Amazon Music is available to anyone releasing music through Ditto.

You’ll just need to make sure your music meets the platform’s audio and cover art rules to get it accepted.

How long does it take to get songs on Amazon Music?

If you want to speed up your release time, you can use our Release Express service to get your music available on Amazon within 72 hours. Otherwise, it can take a minimum of 14 days to get your tracks processed and approved by Amazon Music.

Can I choose a release date for Amazon Music?

Yes! It’s easy to choose an exact release date when you distribute music to Amazon through Ditto. Just make sure the date you’ve chosen is at least 2 weeks from the day you submit it to our platform.

How much money can I earn from Amazon Music?

Like other major streaming stores, Amazon pays royalties based on a pay-per-play rate. However, this rate will be less if the listener is streaming music from a lower-priced Amazon Prime account.

This and other factors like listener location means the streams from different Amazon subscriptions will have different payout calculations, making it difficult to predict exactly how much you will make from getting your music streamed on the platform.

When will I get paid by Amazon Music?

You can expect to see your Amazon Music royalties in your Ditto account as soon as we receive them. Just like with all other distributors, there’s usually a delay of around two months for royalties to arrive after a track has been uploaded to the platform.
