Catapult's Features & Pricing

With Catapult you can sell & have your music streamed on over 1,000 music stores and platforms in over 250 countries. These include: Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, YouTube Music, iHeartRadio, Deezer, & more. We can also get your music into YouTube Content ID, Facebook and Instagram for use on their platforms.

Unlike other music distributors, Catapult charges a one time fee to get your music in the stores. We do not charge a fixed monthly service fee to keep your music online or hit you with hidden recurring fees or upcharges.

We do collect a 9% fee on any earnings from the music stores. For example: if you earn $100 in one month you will receive $91 into your PayPal account.

It’s free to sign up, and you only pay once you’re ready to submit your content to the stores.

Artist Apple IDs and Spotify URIs

During the submission process you can provide your own Artist Apple IDs and Spotify Artist URIs to ensure your content is mapped to their correct Artist pages in those platforms. Or, if you submit a brand new artist, we can create these for you.

Store Specific Street Dates

Want your album to go live on different dates in the music stores? Not a problem, you can choose store specific street dates during the album submission process.


Invite bandmates or teammates to be able to access your account. They can be given specific permissions to submit new content, view reporting, etc.

Volume Discounts

If you have a large number of albums to distribute, we may be able to work with you on a volume discount.

Spotify for Artists

Get verified and gain access to your own Spotify for Artists account. Verified artists can easily manage their Spotify artist profile, learn about their listeners, and share their feedback or questions with the Spotify team. Plus, you'll get that coveted verified checkmark like a boss.

Options and Features:

Priority Processing


One Time Fee

Have a deadline and need your content processed and delivered even faster to the music stores? Select this option during the submission process and jump to the front of the line of our processing queues!

Shazam / Siri Fingerprinting


If fans hear your song playing anywhere like a restaraunt, or on the radio or tv, they can use the Shazam app or just "Ask Siri" on their phone to identify the song! Our competitors actually charge you every year per track to have your music in Shazam/Siri (We're not sure why since it's a fingerprinting service and once they scan your audio file it's there for good!).

Daily Trend Reports

$9.98 / month

Access to unofficial daily sales reports from iTunes, Apple Music, AmazonMP3, Deezer, and Spotify. Trend Reports should not be confused with the finalized sales reports and payments that the music stores release monthly and that are automatically displayed in your Dashboard at Catapult. However, with our Trend Reports and Metrics Service you don't have to wait months to view reports of your sales or streams. Instead, you can view sales of your albums and tracks from as recent as yesterday.

UPC Registration


One Time Fee

A UPC is the code that uniquely identifies your album throughout the world. It is the method by which your album is tracked throughout the digital music stores. All music stores require that your album, single or ringtone has a UPC code.

You can always provide your own for free (Other distributors don't allow this!), but if you don't have one we can automatically generate one for you.

YouTube Content ID


One Time Fee +15% of earnings

If your song is used on a YouTube video and that video earns the video creator money, you are entitled to a percentage of those earnings.

Catapult will deliver your music into YouTube's Content ID system to track its usage across billions of videos.

Facebook / Instagram


+15% of earnings

Get your music into Facebook and Instagram and users can search for and find your songs so they can post them in their Stories, Reels, or Posts.


$5 for Singles / $10 for Album

One Time Fee
