Amazon delay

Postby connorhawke » Tue May 26, 2020 6:40 pm

Anyone else experiencing delays distributing to Amazon? Used CDBaby. Album release date 5/15. Delivery was reportedly requested 5/19. Typically it takes 1-2 days to hit Amazon but a week later it's still not on. It appears neither CDBaby nor Amazon for Artists have a direct telephone support option at the moment.

Hi connor,

Delays like this are hardly surprising at the moment, especially since Amazon orders seem to have gone through the roof with the current world troubles.

I wouldn't worry unduly just yet ;)

I know Amazon stopped accepting physical CD's a few weeks ago but I don't know what the situation is with digital distribution.

That's the thing. It's digital so it shouldn't be affected as much. Weeks ago, during the pandemic, my tracks hit the store in like 1-2 days from delivery request. Now it's been over a week. I'm wondering if the quicker times were due to an automated delivery process whereas my recent album may have been put into a manual review queue, for an unknown reason. I've never been in this queue on Amazon before so I have no idea how long it will take. Based on the reported 2-week time frame for the team to simply update an artist profile image I'm not expecting any miracles.

My album was added to the store today so a bit over a week from request (would've edited my previous post but no edit button).

You'll have to excuse me, but the title sounded like this was going to be about some exotic delay unit inspired by South American forests...

:D
