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 you can check the box next to Physical Distribution Program and then choose the type of format you wish to sell with us. Keep in mind that by doing so, you are also opting 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 is already for sale with us as a digital download. There is no additional fee to do this and you can add this to your listing by following these steps:
- 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 sales, 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 and we'll activate that purchase option on your CD Baby page.
The address to send your stock to is:
CD BABY- NEW TITLE
13913 NE Airport Way
Portland, OR 97230
