Independent musician service Bandcamp rolled out a new service at the end of 2014 aimed at attracting independent record labels. The new “Bandcamp for Labels” adds a more transparent accounting and stats service that allows all artists within a single label to monitor their uploads and other online activity. Other services within the new platform offer a single fulfillment interface for merchandise sales, direct payments on a per release basis and Bandcamp Pro-level accounts for all the label’s artists. Sub Pop, Ninja Tune, Daptone and Truth and Soul are among the labels already using the new platform.
Considering the surge in self-released and split-vinyl releases, the new service can help streamline promotions and aggregate sales for musicians under the same label. Bandcamp is offering the service at $20 per month for up to 15 artists or $50 per month for an unlimited amount of artists.
