Select the LANDR Distribution plan that best suits your needs
Access LANDR’s easy-to-use distribution wizard to upload your music and set up your release
Once your release goes live, YouTube will monetize your tracks anytime content creators use it
After you release your tracks, it can take up to a month for your music to enter the Content ID system.
Artists should consider getting Content ID if they want to be paid whenever their music is used on YouTube. Without getting Content ID a YouTube video maker could use your music with no royalties paid to you.
If your music qualifies to be released on music distribution services, it should also qualify for YouTube Content ID. Mainly, your music will qualify as long as it features only original content or if you’ve received clearance for any sampled, reproduced or reworked material.
YouTube Content ID is available at no extra cost when you release music as part of a LANDR Distribution plan.
You will have the option of selecting YouTube Content ID while setting up your release to ensure that when someone uses your music you will be given the option to monetize it.
After the initial period where YouTube is entering your music into the Content ID system, payouts will occur monthly. The more your music is used in video content, the more you have the chance to make money off of the system.
