How much money can I expect to make in my first set of royalties/statistics?

You can expect to make as much from the Chinese services as anywhere else. It depends on the popularity of your music, on which service your service was streamed and by the type of listener, a subscribing user or a non-subscribing user. You still get royalties from non-subscribing users, but royalties generated from subscribing users is much greater.

It is often that without promotion you may not see any streams or royalties in your first quarter and so it may take a while longer for your music to accumulate streams. It is also true that music without promotion gets picked up and accumulates streams and revenue right away.

Like with other streaming services you will not receive a report if your music hasn't accumulated any streams and there is nothing to report.
