One of the benefits of selecting a Vydia Plan is having the option to monetize your audio and video content. By selecting a monetize policy, content containing your works will be claimed as yours, and subsequently have revenue generated from audience-appropriate advertisements being placed alongside the claimed content.

Please be advised that by selecting a monetize policy, content that you upload on your social media platforms will be claimed as well in order to apply your monetization policy. Also, note that selecting a monetize policy does not guarantee that revenue will be generated; but rather enables the option for ads to generate revenue.

In order to start monetizing, users must create a release on their ‘My Content’ dashboard and select ‘Monetize’ as the protection policy across YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. 

Similar to an ISRC, a Universal Product Code (UPC) is a unique 12 character code that identifies unique products like CDs and digital albums. ISRC’s identify individual tracks while UPC’s identify the complete album. As a Vydia user, if you do not have UPCs for your content, we can create them for you at no additional cost.

Please note you will need both an ISRC and UPC to deliver your audio and video content to streaming platforms.

The International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) is a unique, 12 character code that identifies specific sound recordings and/or music videos. As a Vydia user, if you do not have ISRCs for your content, we can create them for you at no additional cost. For more information on ISRCs, please click here.

Once we receive earnings statements from our partner platforms, we will ingest them into our system. Partner platforms have various schedules for statements and payouts. Typically, it can take anywhere from 1 to 4 months (depending on the revenue source) before earned revenue is made available to you.

The earnings you accrue can either be used as a credit towards any services on our site or paid out to you directly once you register with our payment system, Tipalti. Please note that you are only eligible to sign up with Tipalti once you accumulate a minimum balance of $35, verify your email addresses, connect at least one valid social media account.
