Consignment Policy

Sloth Records Consignment Policy

Yes! We would love to sell your release at Sloth! Here are some basic details on our consignment policy…

What is your markup?
We add somewhere between $1-3 to your release depending on wholesale price. We feel the money should be going to the artist and don’t believe in taking a substantial portion of your sales. Tell us how much you need for each copy of your release or what you want it sold for and we’ll go from there.

How many will you take?
It depends on a number of factors. Feel free to get in touch with us via email before you drop your release off and we can figure it out. We’ll ALWAYS take your item but we may want 2 to start, or we may want 20. 

How do I get paid?
If your release sells out we will get in touch with you and request more, at that point you can come get your money anytime. If we still have copies but you want to get paid out for what has sold, that’s fine but we will need to clear out your consignment at the same time (ie you need to take all unsold items back with you). We do everything using pen and paper and it’s just too confusing for us to pay out mid-consignment so please keep that in mind when asking for a payout.

How will I know what’s sold?
Shoot us an email or give us a call, we’d be happy to update you, within reason. Please do not phone us every second day asking if we’ve sold a copy, we simply don’t have the time for that, but we’d be more than happy to keep you updated every now and then. And if we sell through your release we will definitely get in touch to arrange to get more.

Thank you for considering Sloth Records as a venue to sell your music!
