A trending report is a data that will give you a glimpse into your unofficial sales activity for all territories where your music is being sold.
We currently only offer these for iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify.
All sales and streams in these reports are subject to change and are not a safe prediction of what your final monthly sales will be.
Trending reports are exactly what it claims to be, a measure of trends, it does not reflect sales. While you can view some detailed transaction information (tracks/albums downloaded, customer info, etc.), the trending reports will differ from official sales reports for several reasons, including:
- iTunes™ customers may take advantage of the “complete my album” program at a later time
- iTunes™ customers may return a purchase
- Months are not divided evenly into weeks and iTunes™ accounting months do not match calendar months.
A trending report should not be used as an indicator of official sales, but these reports come directly from our digital partners and are provided as a helpful tool for all of their content providers. We just download the files and transmit them directly for you.
