    Following and Tipping


    Many music fans want to be able to tangibly support the musicians they love, and when they buy music or merchandise, especially through third party providers, only a portion of that money actually ends up in artists’ hands.

    One way Songtradr helps to solve this is providing the capabilities for artists to further monetize their careers through simply connecting songs to their Public Profile Page, highlighting a featured track, and start receiving support from fans. Anyone can tip any amount from $1.00 upwards.

    Fans can now feel more connected to the artists they love and leave a direct note for them when they tip. They can also share that they’ve tipped on their social networks and encourage friends to do the same.

    In addition, Songtradr’s profile page technology allows artists to get more actively involved with the promotion of their own music by featuring their best songs and images along with the ability to share across any social media platform.

    If you're a Songtradr Pro user, you keep 100% of tipping proceeds minus any transaction costs.

    Note: Tip amount minus any Credit Card or PayPal costs (i.e. Credit/Debit Card fees $0.30 per transaction + 2.9%)

    If you're a Songtradr Starter user, you keep 75% of tipping proceeds minus any transaction costs.
