The revenue for each individual stream of your track varies greatly based on a number of factors:

  1. Platform (Amazon, Apple, Spotify etc. all calculate royalties in different ways)

  2. Premium vs Ad-supported listeners (e.g. Spotify pay significantly more for streams from their Premium listeners)

  3. Duration of stream (how much of the song was listened to. On many platforms a stream will only earn royalties if it is listened to for 30 seconds)

  4. Suspicious streams (e.g. if 1 user is listening to the same song on repeat 24/7, the streaming platforms won't pay out)

  5. Listener Location (you get paid differently for streams in certain countries)
