Which is better? CD Baby vs Distrokid!


Both DistroKid and CD Baby are reputable music distribution companies that offer similar services, but there are some differences to consider.

DistroKid is known for its low price point and ease of use. They offer unlimited distribution for one annual fee, which allows artists to keep 100% of their royalties. DistroKid also has a team of experts available to help with any issues that may arise.

CD Baby

CD Baby, on the other hand, offers a wider range of services, including physical distribution of CDs and vinyl, along with distribution to niche markets like YouTube Content ID and Facebook/Instagram monetization. However, they do charge a per-release fee and take a commission on sales.

Ultimately, the choice between DistroKid and CD Baby will depend on an artist's individual needs and preferences.


We suggest doing some research to determine which one best aligns with your goals and budget. We at personally prefer DISTROKID but that is for personal preference and comfort. Both are great tools for indie artists.
