What is SnipSell®?
SnipSell is a worldwide publishing and distribution service for musicians, producers and talented people that create sounds or videos. Like no other we focus on the ringtone market worldwide. The music, short sounds and effects are used as ringtone, text tone or alarm clock on smartphones like the Apple iPhone®.
How much do I get paid for my sounds?
We let you decide. Depending on your deal you get 80% or 90% of what iTunes pays out. Currently that is $.80 / $.90 per download. When choosing the payment plan of no charge you receive 55% (approx. $.55) per Download.
What happens when I hit the submit button?
Your sound will then be reviewed by our team for a quick format and content checkup. When everything is ok we send it to the iTunes Ringtone Store and Tuunes Ringtones Store. If not we will contact you to adjust your upload. Depending on traffic volume your ringtone should be live on iTunes and Tuunes within 1-10 days.
Where do my sounds sell?
On all iOS and Android phones worldwide. We distribute your sounds to the world's most attractive ringtone platforms. They will be sent to the iTunes Ringtone Store (for iOS) and Tuunes Ringtones Store (for Android + iOS) as ringtone, text tone and alarm clock sound. Together these stores reach millions of devices like iPhone, iPod or iPad and Samsung, HTC, Sony, Nokia and other Android devices that are hungry for new, fresh sounds.
How do I create an account?
It's all in your email. Just submit one ringtone. Your account will be created with the email address you provide. If you submit another tone it will be automatically added to your account / email address. It's like PayPal. Your account is connected to your email address. Trend and royalty reports will be sent there each 2-weeks. No need to login and check. Just the simple magic of email.
What sounds do you recommend?
What happens to my rights of my recording?
Basically any sound is appropriate to be a ringtone. Songs, Remixes, Cover Songs, Video snippets, Designed Beeps, Swooshes, Vocals, Sound Effects and comedy stuff. The more it can be used as a ringtone, alert or alarm clock sound the better it will sell. You will notice that soon. Start easy, it should be fun. Notice: Your content must not infringe third party rights.
That's very simple. When doing the Independent deal you keep all rights. YOU decide year by year if you want to continue distributing your sound. Cancel whenever you want. When being accepted for the free deal WE decide year by year if we continue to distribute your ringtone. It'll always be Fair Play.
How do I receive my royalties / payments?
With Paypal. Please register if you don't have an account yet. All the royalty money we collect for you will be sent to your Paypal account on a monthly basis (week 1-2 of a new month). Please note that your first payment will be made 2 months after first release date due to iTunes and Tuunes accounting. Get surprised!
Can I see trends data in advance?
Sure! We are currently sending out trends data on a 2-weekly basis to your email address (week 1 & 3 of a month). This is trend data and not sales data so it might differ to the final figures due to currency rates or customer cancellations. But it will give you a great preview whether your sound is hot or not. If you have not received a report yet please write us.
Do you have any tips or guidelines for my uploads?
Yes. Basically you can be as creative as you like. In case you want to see some details click to see our SnipSell Release Guidelines.
