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 separate 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 instead of a digital sale: when digital is bundled with a physical item, the charts allow us to report one of the sales, but not both. We don’t yet report physical item sales to the UK, European, or Australian charts, but expect to add that functionality soon.
