Music Label Sales Report
To get a view of your earnings across Rhythmic Rebellion, go to the Reports menu in your Music Label Account dashboard. Data here becomes available as soon as a label has an active contract with an Artist within the Rhythmic Rebellion system or owns rights on songs.
Learn more about how the Artist Label Contracts work here.
In Reports, you'll see an artist selector, dates selector, total column, and tables with stats by different sales points (products). Total Count contains all the sales since day one. The By Date column is limited to the date range you have selected.
The Total row shows the sales for all items. Underneath you can see that total itemized by category.
Recipient Share is the amount of money you will receive from Artist's sales according to the signed contract. The recipient share is calculated as the total less the credit card company processing fee and RR fee.
Determine how your running balances are being calculated by looking at each separate table split by the sales points.
Let's look at the example in a Store item table (physical products). Each table has a title. Next, you'll see the totals for the selected category. Below that, you'll see the details of each product.
- Items Purchased - shows how many items were purchased within the selected period.
- Total Customers - the total number of unique buyers.
- Total Sales - the total amount, which came from fan purchases.
- Sales Tax - the total amount of taxes based on the purchased orders. Rhythmic Rebellion collects and transfers sales taxes for you.
- 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.
- RR Fee - a small amount taken from the artist's sales. This can vary between physical and digital products.
- Recipient Share - this is the amount that goes to your PayPal account after the processing/platform fee and RR fee have been taken out.
The general table consists of the following columns:
- Product Name
- Recipient Share
Two view types are available: By Items or By Customers.
Crowdfunding, Shipping, Fan Club Sub, and Tips are 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 print was purchased with different conditions.
Bundle column shows if a product was purchased as a part of a 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 15% off gift code 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-Prdered column defines if the item was requested before it became available for sale.
What Does The Table Show When 'By Customers' Is Set?
If you want to know who exactly is buying your merch, select the By customers filter. Open the details and the buyer's information is displayed.
You'll see the fan's nickname, the date when the product was sold, order ID, and the product parameters like size or color, if available.
Why Do I See Two Tabs With Albums Stats?
Rhythmic Rebellion gives artists an option to create two types of physical albums; one that is based on the previously created digital album, and a second one that does not have the digital album version attached.
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 by the artist digital albums. Most recent releases are placed at the top.
On the top level you'll see album sales of various formats, like CD, digital, vinyl, etc., and their physical copies' names. Those names will be mostly the same.
The next level shows either a list of customers or a list of purchased albums grouped by a certain property, like applied gift code or which platform fans purchased from. This view depends on the By items / By Customers filters.
Further, you can see the list of songs from the album you own and detailed information about the sales.
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 of the CD or vinyl in the system.
