Luminate (formerly known as Nielsen SoundScan) is the industry standard measurement platform for music – tracking sales, streams, downloads and airplay. Luminate collects sales data from all major digital providers, over 2,000 radio stations, and over 550 retail providers. Luminate is the data source for the Billboard Charts. In order to be eligible for tracking, your UPC Code must be registered with Luminate.
Disc Makers clients can order a UPC Code with any CD or DVD order for only $20… a $750 value! Once you have ordered your UPC Code, you must register it with Luminate to ensure you are properly credited for all sales. While your project is in production, we will send you an e-mail to complete the registration process with Luminate.
