I loaded my album on Distrokid yesterday but now I am worried it is somewhat of a front for Spotify. Although, I was interested in promoting sales, if someone can stream from Spotify, why would they bother buying? On the other hand, if you don't have a digital profile, how do people buy anyway?
Bootcamp let's you buy but retains 30%, plus there are Paypal fees, that seems excessive too ?
On principle, as a songwriter, I am not a fan of streaming services due to how they take advantage of songwriters, abysmal reimbursement etc.., but theoretically the profile is good or a mirage ?
Now, I feel like pulling the album out of Distrokid.
