But If you have a million streams and 90% of it from America and Europe , the pay will be very high . These countries have high purchasing power . So the Listeners country and location influence the pay per stream .If Libianca’s streams are more from America she will earn much same with Ayra Star .
Subscription or Free Account. Many be like ” I won’t download Libianca’s song, I’ll be streaming it so she gets more money ” but look carefully you will discover that almost all of them are using free accounts . There are no premium users with paid accounts ..Few Cameroonians even have bank Cards to pay for online subscription.You can’t be streaming with free accounts and she makes money .
