    Monetization Portal: How does it work?

    Follow

    Songtradr’s Monetization Portal has been designed to facilitate efficient licensing of large quantities of music. Songtradr works with various clients who require large quantities of music for a range of uses including music in shops, restaurants, hotels, apps and games to name a few. 

     

    To facilitate licensing to our clients, the Monetization Portal contains Opportunities that represent various licensing types such as Overhead Radio, Apps, Games & Platforms and Compilation Albums. You can opt in any or all of your songs into each of the Opportunities. Those songs then become immediately available for licensing under the terms and conditions of that Opportunity. 

     

    Clients are listed under each of the Opportunities and can search, shortlist and license any music you have opted in. If any of your songs have been selected by a client, those songs will be in a Deal. You can track earnings and usage data for any Deal (described further below). 

     

    It’s important to know that you will only be paid for any actual usage of your songs. Songtradr clients report usage periodically (generally monthly or quarterly) and payment will be made to your Songtradr account once we receive payment and usage reports from the client.


    Note: Some Opportunities are only available to Songtradr Pro users. Upgrade here >
