Our system calculates the cost of the Mechanical Fees exclusively for downloads. Streaming is not taken into account.
The Mechanical Fees are calculated in the following manner:
- A fixed amount: 0,0910$ for the 3 first minutes of a track
- Then a variable amount: 0,0175$ a minute from the 3rd minute + 1 second.
For an album sale, the calculation is done for each track.
In short, the longer the track, the higher the Mechanical Fee will be.
