Frequently Asked Questions

We distribute to hundreds of different outlets and digital service providers. To check out our list of current partners, click here. We are always adding new distribution partners to our network.

ISRC (International Standard Recording Code) is a 12-digit ID specifically for recordings, while EAN/UPC serves as a product code. These codes are crucial for managing your music products effectively.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • You can use your own ISRC and EAN/UPC codes if you have them.
  • If you don’t have your own codes, Hankad will automatically generate them for a fee: 0.75 Euro for ISRC and 1.00 Euro for EAN/UPC
  • This fee will be deducted from your monthly sales.

We pay monthly after our accounting. If your music is streamed or downloaded, you’ll get your royalties statement on the 1st of each month. Some stores may take up to 3 months to report, causing a delay in your first payment. You can track sales and earnings by logging in. Payment threshold: 50 euros.

After submission, your release undergoes a 2-day Content Review. Approved releases are sent to stores. Each store activates releases at its pace. You have 6 priority fast lane releases per month, delivered within 1-7 Days. Other releases take 3-4 weeks. Track release status on your dashboard. Use the 3-4 week period for marketing planning. Take advantage of pre-orders for anticipation.

You can use your music streaming data to ask for upfront payments. If your music consistently earns money each month, you can request more than your usual monthly income. You pay back this advance using the money you make each month, making it a smart way to fund your creative projects. Learn more about Royalty Advances below.
