In order for you to split your earnings for your song(s), the following steps must be taken:
1. You must first invite a collaborator to be a recipient for your account. They will be emailed an invite link where they can accept (or reject) your invitation. An invitation code will also be generated that you can copy and share with them on your own. While our system is waiting for the recipient to accept the invite, their status will be "Invited" and you will not yet be able to set split percentages for them.

2. Once your collaborator accepts your invitation to be a recipient, they will become "Active" and you can then set the percentages that you want them to be paid for any song under your catalog. You cannot set the recipient's percentages until they have accepted your invitation to be a recipient (see above). You can also set your Recoup Threshold or the Recipient Cap. While our system will send the recipient an e-mail invite explaining that you want to split your earnings with them, it's a good idea for you to manually reach out to them to expect the invite email or prompt them to accept the invite.

3. Your recipient will now have their own fully functioning dashboard at Catapult (If they did not already have one) where they will be able to view a detailed list of any of the splits they are receiving. They will not have access to your account and will only be able to view information related to their splits.

4. Once a recipient accepts your invite and you have set their split percentages, they will automatically begin earning the percentage that you set for any given song in your catalog.
