CD Baby will deliver your music to iTunes within 48 hours
If you write iTunes directly to inquire about selling your music in their store, you’ll wait a long time to hear back. At that point, it is highly likely that the form email they’ll send you in response will thank you for your interest and then tell you to use a 3rd party distributor to deliver your music to iTunes.
Rather than going through all that, why not just start with CD Baby? We’ll deliver your music to iTunes within 2 business days. iTunes will post the music for sale through their store shortly after that. No long form emails from Apple. No long waits. It’s simple.
1. Sign up with CD Baby. For a one-time submission fee per-title, CD Baby will distribute your music not only to iTunes, but to Amazon MP3, Rhapsody, Spotify, and many more download retailers. Sign up, tell us your artist name, your song titles, and a little bit about your music and bio.
2. Upload your music. Whether you want to sell a single or a full-album, you can upload a .wav, .flac, or MP3 file and CD Baby will handle all the file-format conversions necessary for worldwide digital distribution.
3. Upload your artwork. Yep. Even if you aren’t selling a physical CD, tape, or vinyl record, you need artwork because all the most popular digital download stores display it next to your name and tracks. Upload a hi-res file and CD Baby will handle all the file-format conversions and resizing necessary for worldwide digital distribution.
4. We’ll do the rest. From the file-format conversion mentioned above, to digital delivery, accounting, payments, and sales reporting, we’ll do the boring stuff so you can get out there and promote your music!
