Band Payment and Other Factors (for bands)
CD Unsigned will pay you your share of every CD and/or digital sale, minus the commission amount published on this website, at the end of the calendar month from the sale via your chosen payment method. The timescale takes into account clearance of cheques, time durations in moving funds from payment processors to our bank account and so forth. For example, if the customer pays by PayPal and the band is paid by bank transfer, it will take several days for the funds from the sale to reach our bank account. There is no payment threshold to reach. You get paid upon every CD sale, although in some cases, for example, where you sell a lot of CDs in a short duration of time, we may aggregate them into one payment. It is your responsibilty to keep us updated with your contact and payment details. If a payment (for example, a cheque or a PayPal payment) is returned unclaimed, or if a payment, cheque or otherwise, has not been cashed within six months, we hold the right to forfeit said payment. The one-time registration fee is for setting up your CD on the site. It is non-refundable, whether or not you sell any CDs.
