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.
Easily submit new albums, manage your catalog, and monitor sales.
At the end of the month, get automatically paid via PayPal.

You get to choose exactly which music stores you want your music delivered to, and when you want it to be available (the release, or street date)
During the submission process you can provide your own Artist Apple IDs and Spotify Artist URLs 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.

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!).
Get access to Daily sales/streams metrics of your content from stores like iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer and Amazon to see how your music is trending in their platforms.
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.
If your song is used on a YouTube video and that video earns money, you are entitled to a percentage of those earnings.
