Reporting digital sales: To get album sales on Bandcamp reported to music charts, you'll need a UPC. To get track sales reported, you'll need ISRCs for each track. In the good old days of compact discs, these codes were burned into a special track on your CD by a mastering engineer. On Bandcamp you can just add the codes along with the artwork, lyrics and other info on your release right in the track or album editor:
Reporting physical merch sales: If you’d like us to report sales of any physical formats (vinyl, cassettes, CDs), you’ll need to enter a unique UPC/EAN code for the item in the merch editor:
When you add a UPC/EAN for a physical item with a download, we’ll report that sale to Nielsen/SoundScan when the order is marked as shipped. Previously, this was optional, and only if you'd like the physical reported instead of a digital sale. Starting August 7, 2020, physical sales will no longer be reported as digital. This means unique UPCs are required for your physical items, otherwise their sales will not be reported.
We don’t yet report physical item sales to the UK, European, or Australian charts, but we hope to add that functionality soon.
