When you look for a suitable online distributor, you come across dozens of possible options. Of course you have to choose a distributor that meets your needs, but we would like to list a number of points that make the services of WM Digital Services attractive:
Support and service
- Dutch-language support, both via telephone and via mail, Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger. We almost always respond to your message on the same working day.
- We offer personal service. We follow our customers closely, which means that in most cases we can deliver customized solutions.
Costs and payments
- You can pay via PayPal or credit card, but pay by bank or with your accrued royalty credit is also possible.
- There are no hidden costs. You pay once when sending your release and you receive 90% of your royalties. ISRCs and UPC are free, updating or removing a release is free, adding new platforms afterwards is free.
- We are happy to make a price agreement with you when you have a schedule for multiple releases, for example an album with accompanying singles.
- For most smaller artists, opting for a distributor without annual subscription costs is cheaper than paying annually, even when you hand in a small percentage of your royalties. Distribution on a subscription basis also means in most cases that your release will be taken offline as soon as you stop paying. You do not have that last problem through our platform.
- Since our establishment in 2009, we have never increased our prices.
Uploads and checks
- All aspects of your release are thoroughly checked, so that any mistakes in the title data, or problems with audio files and artwork can be corrected in time. Not all aggregators perform these checks. We hereby adhere to the requirements of the platforms, so that your release always looks perfect and you are not faced with any surprises afterwards.
- If you are not so adept at uploading files, or if your release simply has to appear online as quickly as possible, we are happy to add it to your account. There are no extra costs.
- When you request a royalty payment, it will be processed within one business day.
- Your royalties are paid in euros, so you are not bothered by fluctuations in exchange rates.
- To receive your full income from a US distributor, you must complete a form from the US tax authorities. This is not necessary if you choose a Dutch party.
