How Often Do You Pay My Royalties?

Royalty payment schedule and guidelines

If you have earned royalties, Songtrust distributes them quarterly if you have reached the $5 minimum payout. These payments are sent via Payoneer on or before March 30th, June 29th, September 29th, and December 30th, as listed on our full schedule.

You will receive a check directly from your Performance Rights Organization (PRO) for your songwriter's share of royalties (this will arrive typically one quarter prior to your Songtrust payment which contains the publisher's share).

We also offer Express Royalty Payments as a way to collect your royalties early for an additional 5% commission on top of your contracted rate. If you are interested in learning more about or requesting an Express Royalty Payment, please fill out our Express Royalty Payment form.
