CD Baby's Lower Commission on Digital Sales

CD Baby’s mission has always been to help you earn the most money from your music. Towards that end, I’m excited to announce that we’ll be lowering the admin fee we take of MP3 sales on from 25% to 9% — lower than any other digital music retailer out there.

And that lower rate holds true for all our direct-to-fan sales tools, including CD Baby’s MusicStore for Facebook, our HTML Music Store Widget, and our custom Linkmaker

It’s simple: you make more money when you sell your music through CD Baby.

When you sell an album download for $9.99 You Make
On CD Baby $9.09
On BandCamp $8.49 to $8.99
On a traditional download store like iTunes or Amazon $6.37*

*After CD Baby’s 9% admin fee

Regardless of how or where you want to sell your music, we’ve got you covered: digital distribution to iTunes, Spotify, and others, online retail sales on, sales through Facebook or your own web site. And now we take the same tiny 9% admin fee regardless of how you sell! Why? Because we feel we’re the best place for artists to get their music to a worldwide market. And, frankly, we hope you’ll think of us first for all your new releases.

Make it your New Year’s resolution to direct your fans to CD Baby, one convenient place where they can purchase CDs, vinyl, and MP3s — and where you’ll make the most money!
