One of Soundrop's core (and coolest) features is the ability to split revenue across multiple accounts. We have two types of accounts:
- Distribution accounts (the account that uploads and distributes music)
- Collaborator Account (an account that receives revenue on another user's distributed content)
With this type of account, you can add content, edit existing content and get paid. You will have the ability to set up revenue splits and get your music/content delivered to our partners worldwide.
Collaborator Account accounts are generated through the processing of revenue splits, and once the account is created we'll send you an invite. You'll receive a temporary password and a link to accept our terms & conditions. Once you're inside your account you'll be able to add payment information (click Payment info) and view the releases in which you're receiving revenue (click My Music).
While Collaborator Account accounts look similar to regular distribution accounts, they don't allow for adding new content or making edits to titles that were already distributed.
If you have multiple accounts (such as an additional contributor or distribution account), you may switch between them by clicking on "Switch Accounts". Collaborator Account accounts will display "Soundrop" under the name on the Switch Accounts page.
If you have just a Collaborator Account account and you would like to add a distribution account (for releasing your own content), you may do so by clicking "Upgrade Account". This will create a new distribution account that can be accessed by switching accounts, or logging out and logging back in.
Collaborator accounts may be subject to tax withholding and payment fees, just like distribution accounts.
