Automatically Submit Concert Sales to SoundScan

What is SoundScan?

SoundScan is a tracking system that assists in recording your sales with Billboard. SoundScan tracks sales of music and music video products throughout the United States and Canada. Any music product that carries a UPC or EAN barcode and ISRC code is eligible to be tracked by SoundScan.

Why do I need to submit to SoundScan?

If you want to have a chance at making the Billboard Music Charts, your release must be registered with SoundScan using a UPC number (for the whole album) and ISRC codes (for the individual tracks). Without registration, the sales figures will not be counted and will remain invisible to the system.

Some retailers and streaming providers report sales and streams to SoundScan. In order for your album to be considered for reporting, you need to ensure that it is registered with SoundScan, then atVenu will be able to keep track of your submissions per show through our platform. atVenu doesn't register your UPC that must be done through the proper channels.
