That depends on how many tracks you listen to in a year. According to this infographic from The Guardian, which used streaming data from services such as Spotify and Apple Music, the company pays out less than a quarter of a million dollars for 1 million streams. Apple pays out around $25,000 per million streams for each of its users. Spotify’s payouts are calculated by looking at the number and frequency of streams, and if a user streams more than 10,000 times a year, the payout is determined based on the stream count.
How does Spotify’s payout look for people who stream more than 100,000 times a year? As of January 2017, the company reportedly paid out nearly $18.6 million per 1 million streams received. The payout for users who stream more than 1 million times a year is reportedly $5,000 per stream, per month.
