Daytrotter Announces Direct Payments To Artists + Frictionless...

Posted by - 03:22 PM on 05/22/13
Daytrotter has announced a new feature that allow direct payments to artists from their members annual fee. Annual members to Daytrotter can select a band to designate $5 of their annual fee to. On the purchase page, all they have to do is write the bandís name in a box located right before they confirm. Bands can choose to have the money go directly to them, to a charity or use this feature to help raise money for a tour or wherever else they could use the help. Also, they've redesigned their site to make all shared links frictionless, meaning that if a link to a session is shared on Facebook, Twitter or a website, fans will be able to listen to that session for free, without needing a Daytrotter account or to log-in. They wonít be prompted to do anything until they try to listen to a second session, at which point they will be encouraged to become a member.
