HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO PUT SONGS ON ITUNES?

TuneCore has made it simple, cheap, and fast to get your music on the most popular streaming services and stores worldwide. Publish your music on iTunes and Apple Music with TuneCore starting at $9.99 to publish a single and $29.99 to upload an album or an EP.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET YOUR MUSIC ON ITUNES?

We care about making sure that your releases get out to your fan base as soon as possible. It takes us about one day to approve your songs, then you can expect to hear them on iTunes and Apple Music after about five days.

HOW OFTEN DOES ITUNES PAY OUT?

Though TuneCore gets you paid as soon as possible, we still have to wait for iTunes. Typically, there is a two-month delay on streaming services and online stores earnings. So, if you put your music on iTunes and Apple Music in January, you’ll see your first payments in March.

CAN ANYONE PUT THEIR MUSIC ON ITUNES?

Worried that you might not qualify for distributing your songs through TuneCore? Not a problem. Anyone can distribute their releases through iTunes, so long as you follow our Style Guide on release information and have your songs in the preferred format.

WHAT’S THE CATCH?

There is none. Music distribution used to be complicated, but TuneCore turned it into a simple, friendly service. We have led the industry in helping anyone to upload their songs around the world. And don’t forget, we won’t take a dime of the money you earn.
