We’re an Indie Label. And This Is What Spotify, YouTube, Beats, Rdio, and Google Are Paying Us…


The attached image is from a smaller indie label, based in the United States, with global streaming distribution through a major digital distributor.

The chart shows what they got paid on average, per-stream, from all of their streaming partners between October 1st and December 31st of last year.  These are the numbers from a spreadsheet for one label for a specific pay period, ranked from best to worst.  This is before they paid their artists.

Check out the image to see what the numbers look like.
