Over $160 million paid directly to artists. Get paid within a week of making a sale on CD Baby.
The most digital partners.
iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody. We've got you covered. But where other distributors stop, we delve deeper, partnering with more digital stores
than anyone else, including regional players (we're huge in Armenia!), major mobile carriers (Verizon, Nokia, and more), ringtones, and niche markets that focus on specific genres. After all, don't you want to be everywhere?
No need to worry about the fine print.
We have NO per-delivery fees. NO per-region fees. NO cancellation fees. NO annual fees. And we'll never kick you off our site for not reaching certain sales benchmarks. CD Baby works on a pay-as-you-go model, so we only make money when you do ($4 of each CD/vinyl sale; 9% of digital music sales, including MP3 sales on CDBaby.com and download and streaming revenue from our digital partners like iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.).
We will inventory and sell your CDs too.
Over half of our music sales still come from CDs. We warehouse your discs and make them available for sale worldwide, both online and in over 2,500 brick and mortar record stores.
We actively promote independent music to customers.
We introduce our customers to the best new independent music via multiple podcasts, music discovery newsletters that get sent to hundreds of thousands of our customers, creative playlists, and Editors' Picks. Plus, we feature top sellers and new artists prominently on our home page.
You set your own price for CDs and downloads.
You can set the price for everything you sell on CDBaby.com – even downloads. Want to sell an exclusive download album for $99? You got it! How about $4.99? Sure. How about giving a track away for free to capture new fan addresses? Go ahead! Of course, if you select to sell downloads through our partners like iTunes and Amazon, you have to abide by their pricing policy (usually $9.99 per download album).
We are the only store that allows you to sell CDs, vinyl, download cards, downloads, accept credit cards at live gigs, and reach the largest global audience.
Build your fanbase.
We allow customers to share their contact info (including city, state, and country) with artists so you can grow your email list and know where your sales are coming from.
We're independent artists just like you.
Since 1998, our company has been run BY and FOR musicians. Everything we do is meant to make it easy and profitable for you to sell as much music as possible. So come on in and join the CD Baby family!
