Daft Punk wanted the majority of pressings to be on vinyl, so only 50,000 albums were initially printed in Vinyl format. After its release, overwhelming sales of Homework caused distributors to accelerate production to satisfy demand. The album was distributed in 35 countries worldwide,  peaking at number 150 on the Billboard 200 .  Homework first charted on the Australian Albums Chart on 27 April 1997; it remained there for eight weeks and peaked at number 37.  In France, the album reached number three and stayed on the chart for 82 weeks. In 1999, it reached Gold status in France for selling more than 100,000 copies.  On 11 July 2001, the album was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America , indicating sales of 500,000 copies in the US.   By October 1997, the album had sold 220,000 copies worldwide,  although Billboard reported that, according to Virgin Records, two million copies had been sold by February 2001.  By September 2007, 605,000 copies had been sold in the United States.
