CD BABY HELP CENTER

What partners/sites will my submission go to? How do I select specific partners/sites?

You can see a list of the digital partners we currently work with at the below link: 

https://members.cdbaby.com/digital-distribution-partners.aspx

We have a few options for you to choose from and personalize your distribution. Currently we offer the following distribution levels: 

  • CD Baby only - No digital distribution, but your album will be available for download on store.cdbaby.com
  • Downloads Only (iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, and more) - Downloads (with and without cloud-access features) only, including iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play and more. No subscription services that provide users with access to tracks they haven't bought or previously owned.
  • Downloads + Streaming services (Includes all download partners, plus services like Spotify, Tidal and more) - Includes sites that pay less than traditional models for streaming and downloads, as well as all download and streaming sites plus companies like Spotify, Deezer, and more.
  • Do it all. Even unpaid - Includes places that offer free downloads and streaming.

To set these options you can follow these steps: 

  1. Log into your artist account
  2. Click on VIEW/EDIT next to the submission in question
  3. Click on the DISTRIBUTION header 
  4. Click the EDIT DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION OPTIONS button
  5. Here you can choose what level of distribution you would like for your release. You can also check or un-check the boxes next to each partner site name to add or remove them from your distribution

NOTE: If you have already submitted final approval on your release you will no longer be able to make changes to your distribution with the above instructions. If you need to remove partner sites you can see instructions for that HERE. If you need to add partners or change your distribution level you can see instructions for that HERE
