How do I manage my profile content?

After you sign in to your account, visit the My 4fame Menu, on the far right. There you will find your Account settings, Profile Settings and virtually anything you need for management and customization.

How do I upload my music?

Inside the My 4fame menu, click on My Music which expands and offers several choices including “MP3 Upload.” Click this menu to upload your individual tracks and information regarding those tracks. Once your individual MP3s have been uploaded and saved, you can go to the “My Albums” menu to create albums using any of your uploaded content. Albums also let you add a cover photo and title of your choice.

How do I activate and create my Digital Music Store?

In your My 4fame menu, go to My Music and then select “Digital Music Store Settings.” To activate your store you MUST enter a valid PayPal username (which is the email address you used to sign up with paypal). Each account and music store must have it’s own PayPal account in order to transact sales. Note: If you are an Artist Manager or a Music Distribution company, you can route different PayPal accounts from each store to the same bank or card as needed.

How do I price my music?

You set the price of both individual tracks and albums. You can price them starting at $1.00 and up in whole dollar increments. You can also change the prices of any track or album at any time.

Inside the “Digital Music Store Settings” menu, under your My 4fame menu, you will find a drop down box which lets you select a dollar value to price all your tracks or you can select the menu that says “I will price my music individually.” By selecting this option you are required to enter the dollar value inside each individual MP3 track you uploaded. This is the only way you can price individual songs higher or lesser than another. To edit individual tracks, go back to your My Music menu and MP3 Upload menu to edit.

How much money do I make on every sale?

Artists and Musicians: Artists that sell directly from their profiles and Music Stores will receive 80% of every track and album sale and 4fame receives 20%.

Fans and Artist Peers: Fanatic and Artist Recommendation Music Stores receive 30% of every track and album sale. The corresponding Artist who’s music was sold receives 50% and 4fame receives 20%.

There are no limits to how many fans and artist peers can sell your music with you.

Inside your “Digital Music Store Settings” menu you will check a box to indicate whether or not you will allow fans and artist peers to sell you music with you, peer-to-peer. Only by checking those boxes will your name appear for others to add you to their music stores. If you leave those boxes blank, fans and peers will not be able to sell your music with you.

If you prefer to only let certain people sell with you, check the box that states “Only approved fanatics can promote my music.” Interested fans and peers will need to send you a message to request they can add you to your store and you can approve or deny those requests.

You must agree to the Terms and Conditions box in order to successfully save and activate your 4fame Digital Music Store.

How do I keep track of my sales?

4fame offers “Digital Music Store Sales Reports” for Artists and Fans as well as “Artist Recommendation Store Reports” for Artists in order to track your sales, your earnings as well as who is purchasing your music. You can sort this information by date range and it will display what song title or album was sold and what your commission was. Go to My 4fame menu, My Music, and Digital Music Store Sales Report menu to view. 4fame.com is not responsible for reporting your earnings to the IRS or any other formal process. Inside the Terms and Agreement of your store, you assume all responsibility to properly report your earnings and file your taxes as required. We do recommend utilizing PayPals reporting for accurate statement of earnings to assist you with that process.

Can I find out who is buying my music or who my fans are?
