You can view your current sales in your account at any time. We automatically display the sales data that is currently provided by the music services. We can't predict when sales will be reported to us.
The sales data is divided into Preview and Settlement:
The Preview shows the sales of the last 4-16 weeks on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, Google and Deezer (without revenue). This way, you can monitor your current sales and measure the success of your promotion. The preview sales are updated daily and serve for orientation. Not all music services report preview sales and the reports are not always up-to-date. After 16 weeks the older sales disappear from the preview and will be accounted.
The Settlement shows all already accounted sales and your revenue share. The settlement is updated monthly. However, it takes min. 4 months after the date of a sale until it is settled. In exceptional cases, and with smaller music services, the settlement can take up to 9 months. The revenue of the settlement is added to your credit.
NOTE: We can't verify the sales data provided by the music services. Preview sales are always subject to correction by the music services (e.g. in case of payment error, chargeback, revocation, technical error or fraud). There is no legal entitlement to preview sales. Only the settlement shows actually paid sales. Since the music services have to account billions of downloads and streams every single day, delays may occur. We have no influence on such delays.
