How often will my royalties appear in my account?
Royalties will appear in your account after your first report and when your music has accumulated streams. Reports are calculated 4 times a year, every 3 months. At the end of every 3 month quarter data is collected and sorted which can take 6 months. Once sorted the reports will be sent out to everyone whose music has been streamed. From the moment you publish your music it can take up to 9 months for you to receive your first report if your music was streamed the moment it became live in China. If your music was not streamed during a specific quarter you will not receive a report for that quarter.
This is an example of a timeline if your music was uploaded and streamed in the beginning of the first quarter.
