I have signed up with SoundCloud and Bandcamp (mp3, AIFF formats and more) as well, two other popular music services for “audiophiles and nerds.” Now I believe that we have covered pretty much the entire planet.
Your €15.00 make €15.00 when you buy the CD direct, say at a concert, from one of us; or you have bought it online at our Webshop and paid for shipping. If you went to a record store and paid €15.00, both the store and the retailer would have kept a percentage. This means only between €4.00 and €6.00 came through. ATS-Records and Amazon give us more, between €7.00 and €10.00.
Digital Album (Audio Files)
Without a physical body, music costs less, say around €9.00 per album, or €1.00 per individual track, and the music services keep between 10 – 50%.
Account in trust
Credit card sales from this website arrive at Parkinsong’s PayPal business account and €15.00 for each CD (as you paid for shipping) will be transferred into the bank account of Parkinsonline. Sales and commission from ATS-Records as well as their partners will be credited directly into the bank account of Parkinsonline. Cash goes also straight into the bank account of Parkinsonline, where your donations are being held in trust.
As promised, we keep full transparency and tell you everything that happens with your donations. Towards the end of the 4th quarter 2019, our board will discuss to whom we give the award. Meanwhile, we stack up 100% of your donations. Parkinsonline will probably double that, so keep buying CDs.
We begin the 3rd quarter with € 3.390 in our account, and the figure is still climbing up. That equals around 400 CDs sold, and not yet includes digital rights. I still have 600 CDs in my house, so keep buying them for yourself, and all your friends. They’re even family friendly 🙂
If you want to give, order the CD with the button (jetzt kaufen/buy now) to your right, or simply transfer any money directly into the account. Thanks.
