TikTok pays out a pro-rata share for when videos are created using your sound recordings. They do not pay out any money for views. Since the pro-rata rate is determined across all sound recording usage in their platform, the amount can very greatly.
There are two ways that your sound recordings can be used in TikTok:
- User Generated Content (UGC): User uploads a video that has has been scanned and matched to one of your sound recordings.
- Provider Generated Content (PGC): User uploads a video and selects your sound recording to be used in the video.
