Our artists and labels now have the ability to distribute their own Ringtones into the iTunes Music Store.
The cost for this service is a one-time setup fee of only $9 for each Ringtone submitted. All you need to do to have your Ringtone distributed into iTunes is:
1) Create your own 5-30 second audio file. This can simply be a snippet of a song off of one of your albums or singles, or simply a brand new audio file.
2) Login to your Control Panel at Catapult and click on “Submit: Ringtone” in the top menu.
3) Fill out the simple Ringtone submission form on the following pages and complete payment for the Ringtone setup fee.

4) And finally click on the Upload button where you will then upload your Ringtone as well as the Cover Art for your Ringtone.
There are a few things to remember when submitting your Ringtone:
●The Ringtone you upload must be at least 5 seconds in length, and no greater than 30 seconds in length.
●A UPC is required for each Ringtone you submit. If you don’t have a UPC for your Ringtone, we can provide one for you during the submission process.
●Even though it is a Ringtone, iTunes still requires that it have unique industry standard Cover Art.
●If you attempt to upload a Ringtone that doesn’t meet that specification, it will be rejected and you’ll need to upload the corrected length Ringtone again. Also, unlike Albums and Singles, Ringtones are ONLY distributed into the iTunes Music Store at this time.
●Your Ringtone will only be available for purchase by customers from with the iTunes App on an iPhone. With the latest iTunes version, Apple no longer allows Ringtones to be purchased from within the iTunes Desktop Application.
