When Does Songtrust Pay Royalties?
Check out the quarterly breakdown.
Songtrust receives royalties according to individual societies’ distribution schedules, which vary considerably. In addition, some royalty types — audiovisual uses, for instance — are subject to less frequent distribution cycles.
Songtrust processes payments from our global sources and distributes them to your account on a quarterly basis, and on 90 day terms — typically the last week of June (Q1), September (Q2), December (Q3), and March (Q4).
It may take 6-9+ months to start receiving royalties once you sign up, based on the time global registration can require.
