The information about downloads and streams sold is not displayed in real time: it takes a while for stores to submit their reports. This usually happens about six to eight weeks after the end of a month.
Example: your release appeared online in January and has since actually been downloaded or streamed. You will then see the first royalty information in your account during the course of March. In the first instance you see an estimate of the amount to be received. After a while this will be replaced by the final statement.
Keep in mind that not all platforms report at the same time and with the same speed.
On the page with royalty updates you can see if we have already received reports and payments from the stores over a certain period.
