Here, we will discuss the key differences between each package available at ADED.US. There are 4 main differences:
- The cost of your membership fee
- The amount of stores that your music gets distributed to
- The number of distribution credits you get
- The amount of money you save with each package
Now, let’s go into each difference one by one shall we…
1. The cost of your membership fee
- Ultimate = $100 / year
- Pick-and-Choose Annual = $45 / year
- Pick-and-Choose Monthly = $5 / month
- Pick-and-Choose Weekly = $1.25 / week
Now, you may be asking yourself, why is the membership fee of the Ultimate Package so much higher than the Pick-and-Choose packages? That brings us to our second point…
2. The amount of stores that your music gets distributed to
When you pay for the Ultimate Package your music automatically gets distributed to all of the 1,000+ stores that ADED.US has contracts with. There is no need to pay any separate store placement fees because your $100 payment covers all membership and store placement fees.
When you pay for the Pick-and-Choose packages, your music will only be distributed to the stores that you have paid a separate store placement fee for.

3. The number of distribution credits you get
When you pay for the Ultimate Package you will get 12 distribution credits. This means that you can distribute up to 12 singles, albums, or EPs without having to pay any extra membership fees or store placement fees.
When you pay for the Pick-and-Choose packages, you do not get assigned any store credits. Your music will only be distributed to the stores that you have paid a separate store placement fee for.
4. The amount of money you save with each package
When you pay for the Ultimate Package you will save at least $250 on store placement fees.
When you pay for the Pick-and-Choose Annual package you will save $15 on your membership fee because you are paying for 1 whole year’s worth of membership up front.
When you pay for the Pick-and-Choose Monthly package you do not really save any money.
When you pay for the Pick-and-Choose Weekly package you do not really save any money.

i have a learning disabiliy…and no help….have two new singles that i want to sell as mps..digital distribution..and to open a pay pal account?can i mail t\my songs to you for this help?9374228268..
Assuming you’ve actually signed up at http://www.aded.us and paid for your account, you could e-mail your music files and cover files to firstname.lastname@example.org
What if I have more than 12 albums, how will the ultimate membership work?
You just pay another $100 and get another 12 credits
By signing your record company up with ADED, does the distribution include a percentage for every stream or just for album and single purchases?
Streams are paid in full… of course the stores themselves take a cut. This is referred to as retail rate (or share) –– Are you signed up at aded.us/pricing ?
