What do I get paid around the world?

You are paid the pay rate in the local currency of the country where the sale occurred. For example, if an album or song sells from the iTunes Japan store, iTunes Japan pays in Japanese yen (¥). The money is converted into USD by us then when we pay you your bank will change that to your local currency.

Be aware that bank conversion rates are out of our control and can change from day to day. 

The bank will convert the currency into your local currency based on what the exchange rate is at the time the bank receives the money.

 

For songs sold individually off an EP or album through the iTunes stores, you receive the following (remember that we deduct our  % fee from these sums):

 iTunes Stores Worldwide:

   You receive

 iTunes U.S. Store

     US$0.70

  iTunes Australia/New Zealand Store

    Australian Dollars AU$0.99

  iTunes Canada Store

    Canadian Dollars CAD$0.70

  iTunes Japan Store

    Japanese Yen ¥100

  iTunes Europe/U.K. Store

    Euros €0.71

Albums and EPs are sold in their entirety in two possible ways:

1.      Albums under 11 songs and EPs are priced by the song. To calculate how much you would receive from the sale of an album with less than 11 songs or an EP, multiply the number of songs by the pay rate of that iTunes store.

2.      Albums with 11 songs or more sold in their entirety have a set pay rate listed below.

For albums with 11 or more songs sold in their entirety, you receive the following:

   iTunes Stores Worldwide

    You receive

   iTunes U.S. Store

   US$7.00
