Artist ID definition. It is a suite of characters (numbers, letters, or both), that is unique for each store. It is attributed by stores automatically when at least one release of an artist has been delivered. Artist ID defines an artist’s page and catalogues all albums of that artist on the same page.
If possible, indicate Artist ID for main and featuring artists for Apple, Spotify, and any other store artist ID required by Believe system, to ensure that artist’s releases are delivered to the correct profiles.
If no Artist ID is indicated, Believe system will try to create a new artist’s profile on Apple and/or Spotify, on the condition that it cannot find an exact match for the artist’s name on stores.
