The distribution channels you set up are the sales reports you will process. The 'Distribution Channel' will indicate which store the sale is related to. However, this will not be reflected in the statements, and it only works as an identifier within the RASA system.
Please note: Distribution channels must either be set on an entire royalty report, or manually assigned to individual sale lines. If multiple stores are included in a single file (such as under a FUGA aggregation report), it is not possible to assign the distribution channel to certain sales but not others.
We strongly recommend setting up all DSPs you are connected to (e.g., Youtube, Amazon, Apple Music) and the extra sales reports they will process (Physical sales, Neighbouring Rights, etc.)
To set up the Distribution Channels, please go to Settings > Master Contracts > Distribution Channels.
The Distribution Channels you create will be essential and appear in 2 places:
- When uploading a sales report in the reporting run
- When setting up specific deal terms for DSPs / stores on the contract level
