Support Budget

Finances required to finish production of CD's for sale at bookstores and online.

The licenses need to be "cleared" and rights purchased in order to complete CD Baby set up. CD Baby will promote, distribute, sell and handle all of the shipping to customers. They will also sell to physical places like bookstores and other kinds of retail outlets.

 

The calculator is used for approximations only. Limelight Service does not guarantee the price on this page. All physical and digital royalties calculated assume the track is under 5 minutes. For tracks longer than 5 minutes, the royalty rate is higher.
