The fast, worldwide accurate data technology used to compile MP3 Awards’s charts is also made available to radio programmers, media press, the official charts company and various music industry professionals to assess the progress of top selling artists and bands, analyse the effectiveness of advertising campaigns across the country and assess the best way of promoting new acts and products. Initially this was on condition that the song must have a physical media release at the same time; this rule was fully lifted on January 1, meaning all download sales are now eligible in the chart.

MP3 Awards Top 10 Charts are based entirely on sales of physical downloaded singles and albums.
