Dear Prospective Partner:
Our company is looking for a Web Developer who is capable of producing a digital music distribution site. Here is a prototype link of what we are looking for:
[url removed, login to view]
SUBMIT YOUR ALBUM ONLINE:
# The first step is to create your free account and login to your control panel. Just click on "Sign Up" in the top right of the page if you are ready to begin.
# You then submit your album's information such as Artist Name, Title, Track Listing, etc.
# You'll be asked at that time to make payment for setup fee.
# Once the album has been submitted, you would then either upload your album's audio and cover art files OR ship us two (2) copies of each album submitted to our encoding facility.
# When we receive the album(s), we begin our work of encoding, scanning(if necessary), generation and assigning of ISRCs, metadata generation, and ingestion and delivery into the stores. This process normally takes about 7 business days to complete.
# After we deliver your album(s) to the music stores it can still take several weeks before your album(s) appear online in each music store (Average of 4-8 weeks for iTunes). This is due to each music store's own ingestion procedures and queues.
RECEIVE PAYMENTS FROM SALES:
# Once your music is purchased and downloaded on each music store, they then report back to us for each download of your album or track. We then parse the information and report it back to your control panel. Payment is then sent to your PayPal account at the end of each month.
# From then on, you'll receive reports in your control panel and payments via your PayPal account every month...as long as there have been downloads of your music.
# A PayPal account*. PayPal is the global leader in online payments, and it's free to setup a new account. You will not be charged any transaction fees by PayPal as we cover all of the fees when we send you your payment. To create a new PayPal account, please visit www.paypal.com.
# A UPC for each album submitted. The UPC is the numerical representation of a barcode and all of the stores require each album have one as a method of tracking your album within their music stores. If you do not have a UPC, no problem. We can provide you with one for only $20 during the submission process.
