Does my report show the number of downloads or streams?

NOTE: Due to the allocations and royalty payout module, some reports may not show a count on the column, this is because if you have a release sale, its sale will be divided count wise towards each and every one of the tracks within the album evenly. Rather than a number, a digit of 0 would be assigned. You can utilize the Royalty Summary for count views and totals.

Our reports do contain a “Track Count” column. Not ALL partners give us that and it can get tricky when looking at streaming providers as you may see thousands under quantity but a dollar amount that is much less than potentially a download.

The reason for this is because streaming rates differ not only by partner but further by territory so the USA may pay more or less than a particular country in the euro region.

We do report quantity based on who provides. Whoever does not, we place a 1 on that column and if it is voided or refund and there is no download count, then we place a –1.

So to recap, Downloads may show a count of sale and Streaming may show MANY but being that Streaming partners don't actually sell anything, that accounts for the number of plays for that particular track in a given territory.
