Why does it take so long to receive publishing royalties

Although 9 – 12 months is a long time, this is a realistic timeline for setting up a publishing agreement, registering your titles worldwide, the societies processing your information, and finally, having our royalties department processing your payment.

If you sign up with any publisher, this timeline is standard. See how the quarterly royalties schedule works here.

You are paid royalties when you are owed a minimum of $5.00, which is the least amount societies and Songtrust pay out.
