Mondotunes success?

I recently switched from Tunecore to Mondotunes because of Mondotunes lack of yearly fees. My trax supposedly went live 10/10/2013. I have yet to see a single sales report or even find my material on any site. I do not want to make a judgement yet, because I am hoping this distribution will turn out to be better than the previous.
Anyone else have any real experiences with success through Mondotunes?
Please only facts, not what you heard.

My band (Rock Bass ) uses MondoTunes. Our album went live on all of the sites the day that it was supposed to. No problems here, satisfied user.

Here is our album on Amazon (notice that "MondoTunes" is our label).

Thanks to your link, I was able to track down a link of my older material.

Amazon.com: Waverunner - EP: Waverunner: MP3 Downloads

Now if I could just get to those sales reports.

Cool stuff! It takes a few months for the first royalties to come in I think.

I've never used the service, but out of curiosity emailed to ask whether or not artists/labels have the ability to pick and choose which stores get distributed to and if possible to do exclusives with retailers - answer to both questions was yes. Being able to opt out of all streaming sites (Spotify etc.) and only release via the "cooler" genre specific boutique stores is a big positive IMO.

Have any of your releases been denied by boutique shops? My only real concern would be that some retailers (those very same genre specific boutique shops) may flag labels using the service as consumer/hobbyist grade mass marketed, rather than established serious professional... other than that, seems like a good little service. Interested in hearing how you guys get on with em.
