This is Jamil here with customer support and we wanted to make a quick article explaining a little more about what to expect after you’ve begun monetizing your tracks through our available monetization programs. So if you’re reading this, that means you’ve already submitted some material and you’ve gotten someplace, and now you want to know how much money you’re getting and when you’ll be getting it.
So what I’m going to do is show you how to navigate this area of the website. To hopefully answer all of your questions about that. Alright, so the first thing we’re going to do is hit this drop down menu and then we’re going to make sure we’re in the my media tab and we’re going to scroll up here and hit sales. Now, once we’re in this sales page we’re going to hit the music distro earnings tab now, this is where we’re going to see all of our available data from any monetization programs that were in that are generating actual monetized plays alright.
So first thing I want to note is that this data is only available once it’s sent over to us from our partners and once we’re able to ingest it into our system. Now data is often back dated, meaning it could be from a few months back as it takes time for our partners to calculate earnings right here. You’ll see that the latest data available that we have is January 2019 and if we click here you’ll see that it only goes back further.
So this is the latest available data, and this is what we’re seeing here are January 2019: music distribution earnings report. Alright. So first thing we’re going to look at is our gross earnings now, for this number please note that not all plays are monetized and they must meet certain criteria on our partner site in order to qualify as a monetized play. So please don’t use the number of plays you see on our partners website as an indicator of how much money you should earn, because the number you see here comes directly from them once they determine which plays were monetizable now right here, we’re going to see the Percentage that beat stars takes, and over here we’re going to see, is the actual amount that you’re going to be earning now.
The last piece of information I want to give you is very important and something we get a lot of questions about so wanted to take. Some time to explain it now, just because you see all of this data available here, it doesn’t quite mean it’s available for payout. Just yet beat stars needs time to process this data internally. Before we can issue payouts, we need this time to check for policy violations.
Like copyright infringement, which we do to protect the breed stars community and the copyright owners to make sure everyone is getting rightfully paid for the content they create because of how strong and large the beat stars community has grown to be. This process takes time and we may not always have an exact timetable for payout to offer. Generally. This is two to six months from the end of each statement period.
However, it can take longer at times, but rest assured. We are working diligently to get everyone their money in a timely manner. Okay, thanks for reading this article and if you have any additional questions, please email us at support at beat stars com.
