How Does it Work
Get Your Music onto Online Digital Music Sites
Doxmedia is your easy ‘one-stop shop’ for getting your valued music onto all major online digital music stores and streaming sites WORLDWIDE. Forget the aggravation of continually filling in masses of paperwork, dealing with piles of administration and paying out ‘signing on’ fees to each and every individual site or service you manage to get your music onto, Doxmedia will take care of all of this for you and remove all of the hassle from you so all you have to do is concentrate on creating and/or performing your music
Then, every three months we’ll send you a statement and payment for all of the royalties that your music has earned for you from downloading and streaming and has been paid to us within that period. All this for a one off adiministration/registration fee per release and then 10% of all royalties earned on a non-exclusive contract!

We need the original release date of your release – this can be in the past or future. We need to know what music genres you’d like your release(s) listed under on our contact sites (eg. Rock, jazz, rap, MOR etc).We also need a short band/artist bio that we are able to submit to all our contacts along with details of any all artist websites and social media pages (Facebook, Twitter etc). Doxmedia reserves the right to edit the supplied text if needed in order to meet any of our contacts requirements.

Details of who to send statements to and who to pay royalties to. All royalties will be paid in UK STERLING. The correct registration & administration fee. This fee covers all of the collective registration charges we have to pay to our contacts and a very small setting up administration charge for our time.

EP = £20.00 (Anything up to 35 minutes AND usually less than 6 tracks)

What Happens Next ?
Once we’ve received all of the above, it may take up to 4-6 weeks to get your release(s) onto all of the sites of our contacts around the world. We always aim to be as quick as possible but once the audio and art arrives at our various contacts we are at the mercy of their timetables and workloads.
Then, every three months (for periods ending 31st March, 30th June, 30th September and 31st December) we will send you a statement and any royalties we’ve received for your music with that 3 month period, less our 10% commission. We aim to send out all statements and payments within one month of the period end date. Payments will be made directly into a bank account or via PAYPAL and your statement(s) emailed to you. Alternatively we can sent a cheque payment by post with a printed statement (UK based clients only). Should your royalties within a given 3 month accounting period amount to less than £10.00 in total (after commission), the amount due will be carried forward to the next 3 month accounting period. In this instance, a royalty statement will still be supplied via email giving you full details of the amount to be carried forward
12 months after the signing date of a contract for a particular release you are free to ask us to remove it from our various contacts listings. We will still pay you any royalties that are received after that date. If you do not instruct us, we will leave your release online. It’s as simple as that!
