(PRWEB) December 14, 2005
Today Tradebit.com, a digital goods sales platform based in Delaware, went live with a new music sales service for independent musicians on http://music.tradebit.com/. Tradebit is revolutionary, offering advantages to buyers and sellers. Buyers can pay for downloaded music on a per track basis. Artists can place their tracks on the site for a flat fee each month, and Tradebit has already licensed CD Baby’s digital distribution catalog.
Tradebit.com was established in January 2005 to offer anyone a chance to sell a variety of digital goods using the PayPal payment methods. The site now contains all kinds of software programs, documents and templates, pictures, and programmer and developer tools.
By negotiating a licensing deal with Portland, Oregon's CDbaby.com, Tradebit.com is able to initially offer over 700,000 songs for 99-cents each. Songs cover a wide range of genres from alternative rock and pop to classical and bluegrass.
Buyers can instantly download songs to iPods® or other MP3 players and begin a journey of discovery into some of the best, but little known, music being made today.
In an interview, Ralf Schwoebel, the German CEO of the company said, "I think people enjoy the fact that they can buy and instantly download files without any memberships or registrations."
By using PayPal on Tradebit.com, US merchants can sell products for less than 1 US$ and keep 90% of the revenue. Tradebit charges a monthly flat fee for a set amount of server space from 40 MB to 5 GB. New users qualify for a seven day free trial. Artists can upload graphics and comments to illustrate and describe their musical tracks.
Over the past 10 months, over 3,000 merchants joined the Tradebit.com platform. The products range from statistic documents about weddings or blog usage, web page templates and graphics to sound, and movies.
