Some streaming companies might not pay royalties for listeners who are on a free trial or other promotion. Other services (like Spotify) say that they split the revenue pie on a country-by-country basis. So if the stream happens in a smaller country where there are few Spotify subscribers or ads, it seems the payments may be smaller or nonexistent. Note that we can’t speak for Spotify or other streaming services–this is just speculation.
