Ari Herstand (Ari's Take)

After reading your review, I'm still conflicted. Please advise with your experience which one of the digital distributors is the best to go with. I have signed up with tunecore but I am a bit dubious and havent spent any money yet

If you're planning to release songs regularly, Tunecore and CD Baby will get expensive. DistroKid would be the option for you. If you're only planning to release 1 album a year or so, CD Baby or Tunecore are fine. If you earn more than $1,000 (in a year) from downloads/streams, Tunecore is better because they don't take commission. However, if you have not sold more $1,000 (in 1 year) CD Baby is better because they don't charge you $50 every year. I crunched the numbers and you need to earn about $1,000 every year for the $50 annual Tunecore charge to be worth it.
