Spotify Monetization – Freemium Vs Premium

You are here:
< All Topics

As you probably know, Spotify has different levels of access for its users.  One of these levels is the Freemium (free accounts), which relies on advertisers to make money – It is based on this money that it distributes the royalties coming from a free user. That means that the price per stream in those cases may vary significantly from month to month and/or country.


The price per stream coming from a free account has dropped dramatically in the past couple of yearsAs an example, an artist will make around $0.004 per stream that comes from Premium accounts. On the other hand, they would probably make around $0.00016 per stream that comes from free accounts.
