Artist Sales Report
To get a clear and reliable view of your earnings across Rhythmic Rebellion, go to the Reports menu of your Artist Account dashboard.
In Reports, you'll see Dates selector, Total sales, and Tables with stats by different sales points (products). This includes all items you're selling on the platform. Although reports include all sales, you may not have been paid yet for all sales depending on the date range selected.
Total Count column includes all sales since day one. The By Date column is determined by the dates you choose in the date range selectors.
Total, in the image below, is a sum of all items sold.
Recipient share shows who will receive the money from the sale. If you have an active contract with your music label defined in the system or another music label owns rights to a song, it will be listed here. The recipient share is calculated as the total less the Processing fee and RR fee.

Determine how your balances are being calculated by looking at each separate table split up by items.
Let's look at the example with the category Store item (physical products). See the summary for the selected category. Then comes the detailed list:
- Items purchased - shows how many items were purchased in the selected period.
- Total customers - this is the number of unique buyers.
- Total - the total amount of the sale, not including sales tax.
- Sales Tax - the total amount of taxes based on the orders. Rhythmic Rebellion collects and transfers sales tax if applicable.
- Processing fee - the fee charged by the payment processor to fulfill the transaction. It depends on the way a fan selected to pay for the purchase. Options are PayPal, Stripe, Google Pay, and Apple Pay.
- RR fee - the amount RR retains as a commission on the sale. This can vary for physical and digital products. As an example, the RR fee might be 15% on digital and 5% on physical products.
- Recipient share - this is the amount that is paid to your PayPal account after the processing fee and RR fee.
The general table consists of the following columns:
- Product name
- Recipient: The Account name of the recipient of the sales revenues. If the rights owner has been changed for the certain entity during the selected period, the additional record in the table for the same entity is shown, but with the different account name in the Recipients column.
- Recipient share
Two view types are available: By items or By customers.
Crowdfunding, Shipping, Fan Club Sub, and Tips always shown By customer; these records are not grouped by the sales property.
What Does The Table Show When 'By Items' Is Set?
The inner table contains data grouped by a certain property. For example, a T-shirt with the print was purchased with different conditions.
Bundle column shows if a product was purchased as a part of the bundle. Here you'll see the bundle name.
Gift code displays the percent of the discount, if it was applied. Two items were bought with a gift code 15% applied. Another four were purchased at full cost.
In-app field indicates the platform where a fan performed the checkout to let you know what platform is most popular with buyers.
Pre-ordered column defines if the item was requested before it is available for sale.
What Does The Table Show When 'By Customers' Is Set?
If you want to see a list of customers that bought your merch, select the By customers filter. In the details, the buyer's information is displayed.
You will see the fan's nickname, the date when a product was sold, order ID, and product parameters like size or color, if applicable.
Why Do I See Two Tabs With Albums Stats?
Rhythmic Rebellion gives an option to create two types of the physical albums, the one that is based on the previously created digital album, and another one that doesn't have the digital album version attached. Check it out HERE.
The Album table gathers digital albums sales and physical albums sales that were created out of the digital version of the album. This is the list of all released digital albums. Most recent releases are placed at the top.
On the top level you see album sales of various formats you created, like CD, Digital, Vinyl, etc., and their physical copies names. Those names are mostly the same.
The next level shows either a list of your buyers or a list of purchased albums grouped by a certain property, like applied gift code or platform fans purchased from. This view depends on the By items/By Customers filter.
Further, you can see the list of songs from the album and detailed information about the sales. If the album contains songs that are owned by different participants, their names and shares are listed here.
The Album (W/O digital) tab contains all physical music products sales that do not have a digital album version attached. This can be a CD or Vinyl album that is created inside Rhythmic Rebellion as a physical product, but has no digital version in the system.
