Do only about 15% of vinyl records actually get reported to SoundScan? Someone from Gotta Groove Records just told the New York Times that most of what they press doesn’t even get a bar code (which means it would not be reported).

We know that many artists who press vinyl are indie musicians. A lot of these artists don’t even know they should be bar coding and reporting their sales through SoundScan.

Could the real vinyl sales be at much as 7 times higher?

As an artist, do you report your sales to SoundScan? Were you even aware that you needed to?
