GETTING PAID BY STRIPE and nominating the frequency of payments of funds from sale of your music on BuyTunes.

Log into your stripe account. You will be taken to the main Stripe Dashboard. Click ‘Balances’ in the left hand menu to see how much money you have earned and when it is scheduled to be released to your Bank account.

To get a payout to your bank directly from Stripe with every sale is not recommended as Stripe charge a small fee (not a percentage) for each payout to your nominated bank account. We recommend that you nominate getting paid from your Stripe Account to your bank weekly or monthly. This way you pay the small fee less frequently.

The notification system within BuyTunes will advise you when a sale is made from your store.

‘Edit Account’ is for updating your basic account details such as changing your password.

‘Log Out’ logs you out of your account.

To get friends to your tunes just share your stores URL https://buytunes.online/artist/yourstorename/
