How to receive payment from music sales
Anytime you sell music through your website, you’ll be paid for it. This payment will go either to Stripe or Paypal, depending on which platform you have set up and which method of payment your customer uses to complete their purchase. Bandzoogle does not take any money from your sales.
To learn more about where to collect money from your sales, please view the ‘Getting Paid through Paypal and Stripe’ Help article.
How to sell an ‘Album’
This option is for selling a collection of tracks. When a customer purchases an album, the download will be a zip file that includes everything in the album feature - all tracks, album artwork, and any bonus files you’ve additionally uploaded.
To learn more about selling an album, please view the ‘Selling an Album’ Help article.
How to sell a ‘Track’
If you would like to sell tracks on your website that aren’t a part of an album or EP, you can use the ‘Track List’ feature. This is useful if you’d like to sell tracks from different albums or a collection of singles.

Note: Lite and Standard members can upload up to 250MB per individual track file. Pro plan members can upload up to 600MB per individual track file.
