Sino Chart

Last updated

The Sino Chart is a sales chart in China established in 2009. [1] [2] [3] Chart rankings are based on physical record sales (album, EPs and singles), and does not include download sales. [4]

A record chart, also called a music chart, is a ranking of recorded music according to certain criteria during a given period of time. Although in the UK, the official chart has only included physical sales and paid-for streaming, many different criteria are used in worldwide charts, including record sales, the amount of radio airplay, and since the popularity of online consumption of music, the number of downloads and the amount of streaming activity.

Record sales activities related to selling albums, singles, or music videos through record shops or online music store

Music recording sales, commonly called record sales, are activities related to selling albums, singles, or music videos through record shops or online music store. Record sales reached the peak in 1999, when 600 million people spent an average of $64 in buying records, bringing a total of $40 billion sales of recorded music. Sales continued declining in the 21st century. The collapse of record sales also made artists rely on touring for most of their income.

Charts are published every Sunday for paid members and, on Mondays, are released on their official website.

On April 26, 2015 the site officially closed.
