Yes, you will receive a 1099 assuming your yearly payout amount has surpassed the minimum requirement for reporting. Please note: before your tracks or beats can be approved to go live on Jetracks, we are required by law to have on file either your W9 (US) or W8BEN (outside US). These forms can be downloaded in your Producer Dashboard. Then, simply fill it out, email it to email@example.com, and you are all set to go live.
We want to provide great music for the songwriters & artists that visit and trust Jetracks. So though there is no approval process to become a producer, each track/beat uploaded is curated by our team before going live. We evaluate quality of the music and correctly uploaded sound and image files.
Yes. You choose the prices and the licenses you want to offer for each track/beat. We do offer pricing suggestions, but you are not bound by them.
When you add a track in your producer dashboard, you will upload a .zip file of the music formats required for each license you wish to offer (e.g. MP3, WAV, 24bit WAV). When a buyer purchases your track or beat, they will automatically receive a download link to the corresponding files. The files will also be available for download in their Customer Dashboard in the Purchases area.
If someone purchases the Ultimate+ license for your track or beat, it is called a “buy-out”. The track/beat will then be removed from Jetracks.com and cannot be licensed again. You, as the producer, retain master ownership of the track/beat itself. But the buyer will have free and unlimited use of their finished recording (track/beat + vocal & any added instrumentation) for distribution of any kind. While others may have bought lower licenses for your track/beat, their license and rights will remain. But the Ultimate+ buyer will be the last buyer of the track/beat and have free and unlimited use of their final product, and you cannot resubmit the track for further license purchases.
No. You, as the producer, retain ownership of your master. The 4 licenses outline the terms of usage you are offering for your master recording. Because the tracks & beats on Jetracks involve multiple licenses to multiple users, offering true master ownership is not possible. However, a buyout of the track (Ultimate+ License) offers buyers similar benefits to owning the master, including unlimited paid usage and your track or beat being taken down from Jetracks and never sold again.
On your Producer Dashboard landing page, and on the ‘Add Track’ submission form, there is a link to download the Jetracks Watermark. You can then simply add it to your tracks/beats before you upload the required files.
We recommend sharing the link to your producer store with anyone who would be interested. If you have your own website, it’s also a good idea to add a link to your Jetracks Producer store. Lastly, uploading new music often will increase your audience, visibility, and followers.
No. When someone purchases a license from you, you are giving them the freedom to use the track within the limits of that license. If their use of the track exceeds the license limit, they will need to upgrade the license by contacting Jetracks.com.
Once a PayPal transfer/payout is initiated, we cannot stop payments sent to the wrong PayPal address. This is why we stress that you Please make sure your PayPal payout email address is correct. This is entered at registration, and can always be edited from your Profile page in the Producer Dashboard. If your funds were sent to a valid PayPal account holder and the transfer was successful, we can no longer recover the funds. If your funds were transferred to an email that is not associated with an active PayPal account, PayPal will give your transfer an “unclaimed” status. PayPal keeps the funds in an unclaimed status for 30 days to see if anyone claims the account. If no one does, the funds will be returned to us and put back in your pending payments account.
You can remove your track or beat from Jetracks at any time right from your Producer Dashboard. Simply navigate to the Tracks tab on the left, find the track, and click Delete. To cancel your producer account and remove your profile, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will promptly remove your profile and account. Any pending payouts will still be sent on the scheduled day.
No, offering stems is optional, however, we recommend that you offer them. If you decide to offer stems for your track or beat, first, go through the normal Add Track process, select ‘Yes’ for the question ‘Stems Available for Pro/Ultimate+?’. Then, create a zip file of your stems, along with the MP3, 16 bit and 24 bit WAV files, and upload it for the Pro and Ultimate+ licenses.
