Commissions & Payments
You'll earn 45% commission for every original public domain arrangement and original composition you sell on Sheet Music Plus. You'll earn 10% for arrangements of songs that are part of the ArrangeMe program.
You must earn a minimum of $10 in commissions to receive payment via Sheet Music Plus gift certificate, $20 to receive payment via PayPal or $50 to receive payment via check. If you wish, you may designate a greater payment minimum, for example $100 instead of $20, when signing up.
We pay out commissions every month. You can be paid via PayPal (recommended) and Sheet Music Plus gift certificate after you have earned $20 or check after you have earned $50. If you have reached the minimum payment amount you designated in your SMP Press account, then payment will be sent to you by the last day of the following month.
For example, your "minimum payment" amount is $20 and your commission balance is $19 at the end of May. During June you earn $15 in commission payments, bringing your balance to $34 at the end of June. Your payment of $34 will be sent to you by the last day of July.
You can view or update your payment options by clicking on the "Account" button once signed in.
