It's great that you want to transfer your existing Catalogue over to AWAL, and the process is really simple.
Please follow these steps:
- Upload products via the uploader in your Portal using the original metadata and ISRC codes. Pick a release date four weeks minimum in advance and enter an original release date for back catalogue.
- You'll be able to see on your Portal catalogue section once the release is delivered and live.
- You can then request a takedown from your previous distributor.
To prevent a break in sales, please do not request a takedown until you've
confirmed the AWAL product is live. Providing you use the same ISRC codes and
metadata, you'll retain stream counts and playlist placements.
Our article How do I check that my Catalogue has transferred successfully does a great job of explaining how you can check that the AWAL product is live and stream counts have transferred.
We have an article about what to do if your catalogue contains 100+ tracks here.
