      Reach a whole new fan community

      When you join Bandcamp, you not only get your own, customizable direct-to-fan store, you become part of a larger marketplace that brings you new fans.

      Set up shop, and we connect you to a massive community of vinyl collectors, tapeheads, digital audiophiles, and people who just want to support their favorite artists, and who appreciate that buying directly from them is one of the best ways to do that.

      A big audience for both music and merch

      In the past year, fans have bought 15.5 million digital albums, 6.9 million tracks, 2.2 million vinyl records, 950,000 CDs, 550,000 cassettes, 450,000 t-shirts, and tens of thousands of posters, buttons, zines, and other physical items on Bandcamp.

      Artists first

      (the money-where-mouth-is version)

      We believe that music is essential to humanity and that the welfare of the artist is paramount. The proof is in our business model: when a fan buys something on Bandcamp, an average of 82% of the money goes to you, and the remainder covers our revenue share and payment processor fees. In other words, we only make money if you make a lot more money. This alignment of interests is core to who we are and the greater mission we serve.

      Pricing

      Artist accounts are free. We make money through a 10% revenue share on merch sales and 15% on digital music (payment processor fees are separate and vary by the transaction size).

      The remainder—82% on average—goes directly into your PayPal account, typically within 24 to 48 hours.

      We also offer Bandcamp Pro (our premium tier for artists), for $10 per month.
