Does Spotify Pay You If You Buy Streams?

Spotify paying you for the streams you buy depends on the platform recognizing if they are organic or not.

The company has stated that it may withhold the royalties it collects for songs if they have fake streams, and that is not all. It will also remove your music from the platform if it discovers you used bots to boost your numbers.

Spotify will pay you for your streams if your promotion service can get you streams without alerting them.

With all the risks involved, you only have to decide if it is worth it.

How Does Spotify Identify Fake Streams?

Firstly, your profile statistics give you away. Having a 20k stream for songs with just ten monthly listeners is a huge red flag for Spotify.

Also, the location of listeners always looks the same for people using bots: Buffalo US, Frankfurt, Phoenix Us, and many others.

Again, your long-term results have to add up. This condition brings together the rate at which people are streaming your songs and your follower increase rate. If the streams are organic, these numbers naturally fall into a natural distribution Spotify has for all other profiles.

Can I Still Buy Streams?

Yes. As mentioned earlier, Spotify’s promotional services have sophisticated methods to help you gain organic numbers. It’s all about finding the right one.
