How To Sell Music On iTunes and Apple Music
Sell your music worldwide in 24-48 hours.
iTunes is the #1 music store in the world. They started the digital music revolution and have dominated the market for the better part of a decade. If you don't have your music in iTunes, you are missing out on 80% of the entire digital music marketplace. It couldn't be easier to get your music into iTunes with our simple to use album submission process from within your Dashboard at Catapult.
At Catapult, when you submit your music album for distribution to iTunes, you can select your wholesale price tier that you want to be paid when your music sells in their store. You can also automatically modify it later via your Dashboard at Catapult.
You can set a specific street date in the future that you want your music to go live in iTunes allowing you time to prepare your marketing campaigns.
You can set your album as a Pre-Order in iTunes so that customers can order the album prior to its street date.
When you log into your Dashboard you can see metrics of your sales that take place in iTunes with graphs and pie charts as well as view or download your monthly reports.
When your music is in the iTunes store and your music is "matched" by a customer (ie: Streamed or downloaded from a user's iPhone, iPad, etc.) or played via iTunes Radio, you receive a per-play royalty. So you can continue making money even after your music has been purchased by your fans.

What others are saying about Catapult
"...Where other digital distributor payouts were laughably small, Catapult's were more than fair and actually skewed rates in the artists' favor; imagine that. I'm glad to be associated with these folks. Their payouts are prompt (once a month on the dot) and they are accessible whenever I have questions/concerns, unlike many other faceless corporations whose empty promises of customer service fail once they get your money."Eric Peters - Independent Artist
