Slow and steady wins the race. Except in a real race.
With over 15 years of experience in the digital music industry, we have worked tirelessly to develop a service that delivers music as quickly as possible to the music stores. And through our relationships with the top music stores, we are authorized to encode all necessary album audio files and metadata and deliver from our world wide network of industry class servers. Our premier status as a quality aggregator, as well as our servers constantly processing and delivering music, is why the content we distribute goes live quicker than any other distributor. Normally, any delay in content appearing in the stores is simply due to the music store's own internal queues and processes.
We deliver content to all of the music stores in only 24-72 hours from the time of submission.
Currently we are seeing albums go live in iTunes, AmazonMP3, Google Play and Spotify within only 24-48 hours following delivery.
Our company is one of the few distributors authorized to directly distribute into the top digital music stores. What this means is that we do not use a "middle man" like many of our competitors. So when others say they offer you a certain percentage of the sales of your album(s), many times they are hiding the fact that another company will be taking a cut as well. We don't like that. So when we say that you'll be receiving 91%, you can rest assured that you'll be receiving the highest payout possible.
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
