FAQs about Songcards
Read some frequently asked questions from our community
Artists in the Discord Server have been diving into the FAQ channel and posting their questions.
So I thought to share some of them with you here.
Q: What's the minimum requirements for creating a Songcard?
A: The minimum is 1 song and 1 piece of artwork. On top of that, artists can pack their Songcard full of any extra material their heart's desire. This content will be available to collectors who own the Songcard via the Account Page.
Q: So when a transaction is made, how much of a cut do you take?
A: We're modelling platforms like Bandcamp. We keep 10% of what we get from Stripe then distribute the rest to artists based on sales.
Q: Can a Songcard be edited once it's gone live?
A: As a rule, the featured song and featured artwork can't change after it has been published, but the extra content one offers to those who hold the Songcard can be updated. Songcards can be deleted and unlisted too, so no-one should worry that it's up permanently. Only those who hold the Songcard would still be able to access content.
Q: How do I get paid once a collector purchases one of my Songcards?
A: Songcards collects payments from its payment provider which is Stripe. We will report and distribute revenues on a quarterly basis.
Q: Other than the one audio file and one piece of artwork, what else can be included in a Songcard?
A: Pretty much anything digital for now! Could be exclusive videos, mixes, photos, anything. It’s really cool hearing what ideas artists on the beta come up with, someone is even working on a game!
