Teams on DistroKid: Paying Collaborators and Songwriters for your Music

I’m going to show you how to pay everybody that is a part of your team or everybody that is contributing to your album or song release using the “Teams” feature on DistroKid, let’s go.

The teams feature is essentially an automated way for you to pay everyone involved with your music so that everyone on your team, whether it’s collaborators, producers, songwriters, or anybody else that is involved with your music can get their cut of it.

You can use DistroKid to pay them out so don’t even have to worry about paying them individually. Basically, as they pay you it’ll get divided out and sent via PayPal to the right people.

All you need from them is an email. Once you have that, you can set and forget!
