Once your legacy CD Baby Pro Publishing release has been finalized for digital distribution, you won't be able to change a songwriter from collecting to non-collecting, or vice versa, from within your account. If you need to make this change, please submit a request through the CD Baby Pro Publishing Help Center request form. Please see below for instructions on how to submit your request.
Please allow 2-3 weeks for your request to be processed by our Pro Publishing team. You will receive email confirmation once the changes have been made in your CD Baby account. Be advised, if you are asking to make a songwriter collecting for the first time, you will be charged a one-time fee of $10 for us to begin collecting royalties for that songwriter. In this case, our Pro Publishing team will add the songwriter to your account and ask you to pay for the songwriter before they can finish processing your request.
⚠️If you are looking for help on a non-collecting songwriter for your CDB Boost release, please go here.
Submit a request to make a songwriter collecting or non-collecting
Under the "Select what you need assistance with" dropdown menu, select the "Make songwriter collecting or non-collecting" option, complete the form, and click "Submit".
*The CD Baby Pro Publishing service was discontinued as of August 8th, 2023. Any paid release which was signed up for CD Baby Pro Publishing prior to August 8th, 2023 is considered a legacy Pro release and will continue to receive Pro Publishing services. CD Baby now offers a new expanded suite of revenue amplifiers called “CDB Boost” instead.
