How to pay for a collab as a Music Maker
You as a Music Maker can decide your own Collab budget. When you send out or receive a collab proposal you can indicate how much you want to pay and if you want to pay a flat fee or give your collaborator a royalty split on the track he or she is promoting. Royalty splits include a percentage of the track’s distribution royalties earned through Collabhouse. Distribution royalties are royalties earned by streaming the track on music services such as Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube. Fixed fees are payable after the campaign and after acceptance of proof of delivery. Fixed fees are paid directly by the Music Maker to the influencer via PayPal. Track royalty splits are paid out during the period you agreed to as part of your collab. The minimum period for collab royalty splits is 3 months.
