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 support, both by telephone and by mail, Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger. We almost always respond to your message the same working day.
- We provide personalized service. We follow our customers closely, which means that in most cases we can deliver custom work.
– Like many artists, we attach great importance to the slogan 'support your locals'. Working together with a Dutch distribution platform, instead of (for example) an American company, fits in perfectly with that in our opinion.
Costs and payments
- You can pay via PayPal or credit card, but you can also pay by bank or with your accumulated royalty credit.
- 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 if you have a schedule for multiple releases, for example an album with accompanying singles.
- Opting for a distributor without an annual subscription fee is cheaper than paying annually for most smaller artists, even if you hand in a small percentage of your royalties. Distribution on a subscription basis in most cases also means that your release will be taken offline as soon as you stop paying. You do not have the latter problem via our platform.
- We have never increased our prices since our inception in 2009.
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 a timely manner. Not all aggregators perform these checks. We adhere to the requirements set by the platforms, so that your release always looks perfect and you are not faced with surprises afterwards.
- If you are not that adept at uploading files, or if your release just needs to be online as soon as possible, we are happy to add it to your account. There are no additional charges.
- When you request a royalty payment, it will be processed within one business day.
- Your royalties are paid in euros, so you will not be bothered by exchange rate fluctuations afterwards.
- To receive your full income from a US distributor, you will need to complete a US tax form. This is not necessary when you choose a Dutch party.
