How Much Does It Cost to Upload to Spotify?

To upload music to Spotify, you’ll need to work with an aggregator such as DistroKid or TuneCore. Aggregators allow you to get your music on streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal. They also provide other services such as collecting royalties, generating ISRC codes, and more.

DistroKid is one of the most popular aggregators used by independent artists right now. It charges an annual fee of $19.99 per year for unlimited song and album releases. For each release, you’ll need to pay a one-time fee of $9.99.

TuneCore is another popular option for independent artists wanting to get their music onto streaming platforms like Spotify. TuneCore has two plans: the “Standard Plan” costs $9.99/year and allows up to 5 single releases (or EPs) per year; the “Unlimited Plan” costs $49.99/year and allows unlimited single releases (or EPs).

In addition, both plans charge a one-time fee of $9.99 for each release.


Uploading your music to Spotify can be done relatively easily with the help of an aggregator such as DistroKid or TuneCore. The cost will vary depending on which plan you choose but generally expect to pay an annual fee plus a one-time fee per release.
