How to Switch From Your Current Music Distributor to AvidPlay
Looking to move away from CD Baby, DistroKid, Ditto, or another distributor to AvidPlay? Here’s what you need to do to move your current releases without disruption, while also maintaining all of your streaming statistics.
First, you’ll need to log in to your current distributor account and gather these details:
- EAN/UPC associated with your released album(s)
- ISRC associated with track(s)
If you’re unsure about how to go about this, you can reach out to the distributor who’ll be able to offer guidance on how to find these details. Ensure that you have all details associated with the album(s) exactly as they were initially entered; title, genre, artist, etc. This will help to ensure all stats associated with the release will still be available to you once the product is distributed through AvidPlay.
Now that you have all of your information, you can begin to takedown your releases from your current distributor. If your distributor allows you to takedown the releases yourself go ahead and do that, or request that they do it for you.
Once you’ve confirmed the releases have been removed from stores and streaming services you can create your AvidPlay account, if you haven’t already, and go ahead and redistribute your music.
You can purchase an AvidPlay plan here.
If you follow the process outlined you will be able to find the grand total of streams for all track-linked versions on relevant services such as Spotify (through Spotify for Artists).
We look forward to having you as a part of the AvidPlay family.
