Concerning number of downloads or streams?

Our reports do contain a “Track Count” column. Not ALL partners do give us that and it can get tricky when looking at streaming providers as you may see thousands under quantity but a dollar amount that is much less than potentially a download.

The reason for this is because streaming rates differ not only by partner but further by territory so the USA may pay more or less than a particular country in the euro region.

We do report quantity based on who provides. Who ever does not, we place a 1 on that column and if it is a voided or refund and there is no download count, then we place a –1.

So to recap, Downloads may show a count of sale and Streaming may show MANY but being that Streaming partners don’t actually sell anything, that accounts for the number of plays for that particular track in a given territory.
