    How to license a Songtradr artist track


    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.


    Important note: The License sale type only allows the Buyer to use the music for the specific usage they provided at the time of purchase.


    Let's get started!

    • Click License or the Cart icon on the song you would like to license





     The licensing wizard will appear.



    • Choose the Business type for the song usage. Click the information icon beside each Business type to learn more
    • Choose the Project type
    • Choose the Category type
    • You should now see the final cost to license this song
    • Click Add to Cart


    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 price. 




    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 price, click Get a Quote.




    A Licensing Inquiry form will appear.

    • Fill out the form
    • Click Request Quote and a Songtradr representative will get back to you as soon as possible

    • Click View Cart or the Cart icon at the top of your Dashboard to see your licenses.




    • You can add more licenses to your cart, or click Checkout.




    • Enter Payment information

    Note: Subject to approval, you may request an invoice. We generally approve all established media companies, businesses and production companies.

    • Click Finish & Download Files




    • Fill out Buyer Information, Licensee Information, and Additional License Details
    • Click Save & Continue

    IMPORTANT NOTE: You may only use a track for the use as specified on the license agreement and for the term stated. If you wish to use the track for another project or different campaign, you will require another license. Typically, Songtradr licenses are perpetual (life of copyright), however in some instances, they will be limited to a term e.g. one year.


    Your music is now ready for use!
