Deezer is looking to create a new royalty system, that will better distribute funds to artists. Currently, Deezer is attempting to secure the necessary rights to launch its new royalty system. The company is hoping to launch its user-centric payment system as a test program in France. If the test phase works out, then the new payment structure will receive a global release.
Currently, the payment system for Deezer operates as a percentage of total plays on the platform. However, under the user-centric payment system, a user's subscription fee would go only to the artists that they listen to. Forty music labels have already agreed to the new system, and Deezer hopes to continue getting more rights.
