So Easy Even Your Drummer Could…
Well, perhaps not that easy but still, pretty easy. Bandcamp provides a professional home on the web for your music. It’s straightforward to set up, you get your own bandcamp.com address, unlimited storage, and…
An MP3 may be fine for most, but a vocal minority of fans demand your tunes in high-quality formats like FLAC and Apple Lossless, and obscure ones like Ogg Vorbis (gesundheit). We say more power to ’em, but we also think it’s crazy to expect an artist to create and maintain all those choices. So on Bandcamp, you upload a single, lossless audio file (such as a WAV or AIFF), and we lovingly convert it to every conceivable format your fans could possibly desire. more info
Mobile Mobile Mobile
Bandcamp sites work and look great on mobile devices. Everything is optimized for the smaller screen and touch interface, so your albums look amazing, fans can browse your merch with ease, and the checkout flow is fast and intuitive. more info
Bandcamp gives you the flexibility to charge whatever price for your music you see fit (including zero), or let fans name their own price, with the minimum chosen by you. It’s entirely in your hands (as it of course should be).
Sell Physical and Digital, Side-by-Side
You can sell both your physical merchandise and your digital music from Bandcamp, and better yet, you can sell them together. So, for example, you can easily create a vinyl + digital package where your fans get the music immediately, without having to wait for their record. And if you work with a fulfillment partner, they can see all your merch orders at a glance, mark orders as shipped, search for orders, filter orders by date and shipped status, or generate reports. more info
Bandcamp’s rich, up-to-the-instant stats system reveals who’s linking to you, where your music is embedded, which tracks are most and least popular, what’s being downloaded and when, which search engine terms are sending traffic your way, and what you ate for breakfast on January 4th, 1993 (Special K with banana). Use the data for the pure, ego-stroking thrill of it all, or to jump in the conversation and stoke the fires of your fandom.
Gorgeous, Clean Players
Bandcamp gives you, your fans and the press a bevy of sharp, customizable music players to embed across the web. They’re simple, effective, and completely focussed on driving fans back to your site. more info
Reporting to SoundScan
We submit U.S., Canadian and international sales reports to SoundScan each and every week, so go ahead and set your sights on the Billboard charts. American Idol, Season 12: The Album, watch out! more info
Sell in (Just About) Any Currency
Price your goods in US Dollars, Pounds Sterling, Canadian Dollars, Euros, Australian Dollars, Israeli New Sheqels or any of 12 other currencies.
Search Engine Optimized
When fans Google your band name, track titles or lyrics, they should find you, not lyriczzzbay.com or iMyFace. Why should some other site get first crack at engaging, and ultimately, profiting from, your fans? We grease up your SEO slicker than pomade-dipped velour, so you may claim your rightful place at the top of Google results.
Discount codes let you offer fans discounts on their purchases. You generate codes, distribute them however you like (email, Twitter, word-of-mouth), and then fans enter the code during checkout to apply the discount. more info
Setting up pre-orders on Bandcamp is a breeze. You can give fans one or more tracks immediately when they pre-order, and then when you release the record, we automatically email those fans a link to download the full album and we report your pre-sales to SoundScan. more info
Sell within Facebook
The Bandcamp Facebook app puts all the functionality and content of your Bandcamp site into a tab within Facebook. It’s a snap to install and looks oh-so-smooth. more info
Build Your Mailing List
Easily collect fans’ email addresses for any free album or track and export them at-will. more info
Bonus Download Items
Upload PDF liner note booklets, videos, alternate art… pretty much whatever goodies you like, and we’ll include them in the downloaded album’s zip file. more info
