At Catapult, we offer the ability for our artists and labels to automatically split earnings of their songs with their collaborators from the songs that they have submitted for distribution to the major music stores and platforms. This feature is called Auto-Splits.
In order for an Artist to utilize this feature, the artist must first invite recipients to be able to receive split earnings. This is the email invitation that you received.
In order to accept the invitation, you must either:
- Already have an existing account at Catapult
- Signup for a free account at Catapult
If signing up for a new account, your account will be a fully functioning Catapult account where you can also submit content for distribution to the music stores if you so choose.
Once the invitation has been accepted, the artist (The sender) who sent you the invitation will then receive a notification that you accepted their invite. That artist then can add you as a recipient of a split for any given song in their catalog and set the various split percentages.
When an artists adds (or removes) you as a split recipient on a track, you will receive an automatic email notification informing you of the change. You can then view any incoming splits from your own dashboard at Catapult:
Example of a Recipient's dashboard showing incoming splits.
The most important thing to remember is that in order to receive any payment(s) from Catapult for your splits, you must have a PayPal account and assign your PayPal email address to your account at Catapult from within your dashboard. We cannot payout your splits until you have assigned your PayPal email address to your account.
