If I'm a DEBUT artist, will I get paid for my music on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok?
Yes! Royalties that we receive from Facebook, Instagram and TikTok in connection with your music will be posted to your Wallet (which you can read more about here).
How do I get paid from the use of my music on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok?
When we deliver your tracks to Facebook, Instagram and TikTok:
- They are included in the audio libraries in those services, so that users can add your music directly to their Reels, Stories and TikTok posts.
- Facebook, Instagram and TikTok also scan uploads to identify when your music is being used in the background of a video.
Both types of usage can generate royalties for your music - so, the more your music is used on these services, the more royalties you are likely to receive!
If I downgrade from SELECT to DEBUT, will I still get paid for my music that was on SELECT music services? What about after my music is taken down?
Yes, your Wallet balance will continue to be updated when we receive and process reporting and payment from music services - and, since this is usually 30-45 days after the month in which streams occurred (or even longer, depending on the music service), you may continue to see earnings from SELECT music services for a month or more after you have downgraded from SELECT to DEBUT.
As a DEBUT artist, can I still accept an invite to be a Split Pay collaborator?
Yes, you can still accept an invite to be a Split Pay collaborator as a DEBUT artist, and you will receive 90% of the royalties generated by those splits.
How can I see how much I've earned from music on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok?
You can find details on your earnings from Facebook, Instagram and TikTok in the Wallet section of your UnitedMasters account.
To view your earnings reports, first make sure that you've set up your Wallet. Then, tap or click on the Wallet tab and select "View Reports".
Here, among other earnings data, you can view the top platforms your music has earned money on. Tap on the month shown to see earnings for a previous month.
You can find more information in the Wallet section of our help center.
If I have money in my Wallet, can I cash out?
As a DEBUT artist, you can cash out any time you have at least $50 in your Wallet Balance.
