CD Baby Pro Publishing Administration distributes royalties quarterly. We pay as quickly as possible after receiving distributions from all collection societies. Generally, US societies are 2 quarters behind (e.g. 4th quarter 2013 payments will include uses from the 2nd quarter of 2013). Societies outside the US vary from 2 - 4 quarters behind.
These royalty payments are dependent on the use of your song in a particular quarter. There are no guarantees that by joining CD Baby Pro Publishing Administration, you will receive publishing royalties.
From CD Baby Pro Publishing Administration, you receive payment of the publisher’s share of your royalties. The songwriter’s share will be sent directly to you from your Performing Rights Organization.
