Chirpify enables bands to sell & giveaway both music & merch on Twitter letting your followers purchase just by replying BUY. Essentially - Chirpify is a social commerce platform launching with in-stream transactions on Twitter. For example:

@Coolband tweets "Download our new album from us on Twitter. Reply 'BUY' to purchase for $10.00"
@Coolbandfollower replies "@Coolband buy"

The payment transfers to the band from fan and the digital download link is sent to the fan via Direct Message and Email.

Chirpify also handles:
- giveaways (fans just reply 'Gimme')
- Secure payments via Paypal
- 1 GB digital content delivery
- physical items
- Permalink landing pages to share your item for sale on other social media
- eCommerce integration
- Direct payments
- Donations
- Downloadable CSV reports of fan data
- and more.

Check it out http://www.chirpify.com/signup or email me if you have any questions rory@chirpify.com . We also offer an Enterprise version for labels and larger operations.

I'm a fan of any service that puts music in the hands of the fans, and cash in the hands of the artists.
Cut the greedy middlemen at the record labels.
