What happens when I add distribution to my project?
How it works:
Once we finish manufacturing your CDs, we will digitally transfer your contact information, your song and cover art files, and some of the album metadata to CD Baby, and will send them 5 copies of your CD for their warehouse.
Upon receipt of your album information CD Baby will send you an email with a link for you to log in and complete your account registration.Your album will not be available for sale on any of their digital partner sites until you complete this important step.
Once you have completed the distribution setup process, your release will be reviewed by CD Baby’s inspection team to make sure it meets their partners submission requirements. If their team has any concerns, you will receive an e-mail from their inspection team detailing any issues that need to be resolved or further action that needs to be taken on your end. Once your album has passed inspection, CD Baby will begin delivering your project to their partner sites.
If your CDs run low in CD Baby’s warehouse at any time and they require more physical albums for their inventory, they will contact you directly.
