Wholesale and Retail.
Most of the major music stores automatically set the Wholesale Price and the Retail Price of your albums. However, some music stores like iTunes and Amazon allow you to select a Wholesale Price for your album that will in essence determine the Retail Price that your content is sold for in their store(s). You will have the option of selecting the Wholesale price for your album(s) for iTunes and AmazonMP3 during the album submission process within your Dashboard at Catapult.

Spotify is a subscription based music service that does not (currently) offer the sale of digital downloads. All content on Spotify is streamed over the internet to their paid subscribers. Spotify pays out a perportionate share of the subscription income that they receive from their customers to the artists and labels whose content they stream. This share of income changes every month and depends on a multiple of factors such as Spotify's total subscription income from their subscribers, the subscription tier of each subscriber, the total number of streams that take place in Spotify in a given month, and the total number of an Artist's or Label's content streams in their store in a given month. Because these factors change each month, there is not a specific amount per stream that can be stated.
