You can always host, promote and share your entire music catalog – these tools will always be free with Official.fm
We will not charge you anything. In other words, if you have a quiet month, the service is completely free and you keep 100% of your proceeds*
Whether you make exactly $30 or $3,000 – it will always be just $5. The rest goes into your pocket*
What type of audio file should I upload?
For the time being we only support MP3s. We strongly recommend you upload files encoded in 320Kbps as this bitrate is the best possible quality for an MP3. 256Kbps is OK too, but we advise against lower bitrates because what you upload is what your fans will be able to download.
Can I set my own prices for my music?
Your music, your rules. We don't impose set prices for tracks, EPs or albums. Deciding how much to sell your music for is truly and entirely up to you.
So what you're saying is that I can sell my music directly from my Official.fm player?
Totally. Your fans can stream your music in our player and by clicking on the 'BUY' button, they will be able to purchase and download your content directly without the need to be redirected to another website.
Are there any geographical restrictions?
Nope, your content can be sold from any place in the world to fans on any of the four corners of the globe.
Does PayPal take a fee on transactions?
Yes. PayPal's standard fee is 5% + $0.05 USD per transaction.
When will I be paid?
Official.fm pays you via PayPal at the beginning of each month for the money you’ve made in the past month. You then have the liberty to choose when and how to transfer funds from your PayPal to your own bank account. As a reminder, the minimum for a payout is $1. For more information, please refer to PayPal's FAQ on withdrawing money.
Do my fans need to register with Official.fm to purchase my music?
Hell no. We don't want people to stray from making that purchase because they need to register, give out an email address and risk eternal spamming from a reprobate merchant, or share sensitive information like credit card details. Your fans will use Paypal interface.
