SPOTIFY STREAMING ROYALTIES CALCULATIOR
Spotify do not publish an official per stream rate of pay as this is not the way they work out their royalty payments. Spotify pay the majority of their revenues earned through their subscriptions and advertising back to the music rights-holders (Record Labels, Publishers and PROs) .
The royalty payments depend on several variables including the country people are streaming from, the amount of premium members compared with ‘freemium’ members (more premium members = higher payments for artists), currency values and the deal your distributor has with Spotify.
The calculator below will come up with a rough estimate of how much you can expect to receive in royalties excluding publishing income for the songwriters and before any label, management or distribution fees have been subtracted. The stream rate we are using for this calculator has been worked out using a number of different online sources and is to be used as an estimate only.
