The Boston Herald profiles digital music distributor, TuneCore.

While a physical distributor warehouses CDs and ships them to brick-and-mortar retailers, TuneCore stocks digital music and delivers it to online stores such as iTunes and eMusic. But unlike other distributors, physical and digital, TuneCore doesn’t take a cut of the sales. Instead, it charges a flat fee. For example, the cost of making a single song available on iTunes is a mere $2. That’s cheap.
