If you'd like to sell a physical format (CD, Vinyl or DVD), you will need to sign up your project as a Standard or Pro album.
During the sign-up process, you will be asked how you want to sell your album. You will see this on the first page called Basic Album Information under "How Do You Want To Sell"
If you wish to offer physical sales of your release, please check the box next to Physical Distribution Program and then choose the correct format. This is how to opt-in to our Physical Distribution Program.
Adding a CD or Vinyl to a digital-only release
You can also add physical sales to an album that has already been digitally distributed. There is no additional fee to do this.
- Log in to your account.
- Click on the tab “Album & Singles” at the top of the page or “View All Releases” toward the middle of the page.
- Locate the album you want to add the physical option to and click on “view/edit”.
- Click on DISTRIBUTION
- Click on the "ADD PHYSICAL DISTRIBUTION" button
- On the next screen scroll down to the section that says, "How Do You Want to Sell" and check the box next Physical Distribution Program.
- Choose the appropriate format (CD, Pro CD-R, DVD, Vinyl).
- Click on “Save and Continue” and follow the rest of the steps.
Once you have added physical distribution, you will need to mail us 5 copies of the product in order to activate the service. Once we receive and check them in, you will get an email confirmation.
The address to send your stock to is:
