A brand new way to sell your digital albums was just added… you can now accept pre-orders before your album is officially available. Fans can buy your album in advance, and instantly get it the moment you release it to the world.
There are several benefits to selling an album pre-order. First, in any promotion you do for the album, you can link directly to your store page so fans can buy it right away, while you have their attention. Second, pre-orders are a great "fan funding" tool, to help offset some of the costs of producing or promoting your album. Finally, your best fans get the album immediately, when you release it. So everyone wins!
Using our Music feature, any digital album can be made available for pre-order on your website. Fans who buy your album in advance will be sent a download link on the date the album is released.
You can even add preview tracks as they’re created, to help encourage fans to pre-order the album. And of course, you still keep 100% of your sales!
How it works
Add a new album to your website using the Music feature
In the Add album screen, select Accept pre-orders
Set a price for your album (note: pre-order albums cannot be set as free)
Set a release date (we'll show this date to your fans, but you can choose to release the album any time)
Once you’re ready to release the album, simply go to the Pre-Order tab in the Music feature and click Release. This will make your album available for purchase and send download links to fans who already ordered it.
