    As of January 21, 2019

    Using Songtradr’s easy and intuitive pricing means getting the right music for your project with no surprises. Simply choose the song you’d like to license, get a final price using the licensing wizard, and check out.

     

    HERE'S HOW:

    • Click the song you would like to license

    • Answer any additional questions which appear in the licensing wizard.

     

    Please note: the questions will depend on the project type. Changing the project type changes the subsequent fields which need to be filled in. This, in turn, affects the final calculation.

    Depending on your project type, you may be asked for additional information such as:

    • Media Format
    • Company Size
    • Advertising Budget

     

    You should now see the final cost to license this song.

     

    In some cases, you may see Custom Pricing which means the seller has disabled Default Pricing for that particular song or usage.

    • To get a final cost, click Get a Quote.
