No trick : no renewal fees or hidden charges. With Zimbalam, you pay only once and your release stays online for life, without having to pay anything more. Often, when you release a new album, your previous releases are also listened to again. Moreover, with the playlisting system on streaming services, if your tracks are playlisted, you should be listened to after many years, and so earn royalties. Without renewal fees, Zimbalam allows you to get this revenue without spending any more money.

Unlike other services, Zimbalam don't charge for UPC creation. This code is mandatory for all products on sales. With Zimbalam, you save money compared to other distributors.
