TuneCore Sweetens the Deal; Spins Flat Rate Proposition

  • Save

Digital distributor TuneCore is now sweetening the deal with a one-price, one-track distribution plan.

The company will soon distribute any artist track across eleven stores for a flat price of $9.99, according to information shared by the company on Friday.  That replaces a pricing formula that includes per-song, per-store and yearly maintenance fees. The new, flat-rate plan starts June 20th.

TuneCore simply positions tracks onto various digital music outlets, though production and tracking services also exist.  The TuneCore distribution network includes iTunes Stores in the US, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.  Others include AmazonMP3, eMusic, Napster, Rhapsody, LaLa, and GroupieTunes. Artists retain all royalties, and TuneCore deals are non-exclusive.
