Over the years, eight or nine (thousand) people have written to us asking for more ways to pay artists on Bandcamp. We’re pleased to announce that starting today, you have the option to use a credit card (or bank/debit card) to purchase digital albums and tracks, and also save your card with your fan account for faster checkout later. On top of that, you can purchase digital albums and tracks from multiple artists in a single step, rather than checking out for each artist individually. Discover some new music and try it out!
Things you may be wondering:
What cards are accepted?
Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
What currencies are supported?
Credit card checkout is available for digital-only purchases in US, Canadian, and Australian dollars, British pounds, Japanese yen, and euros (depending on your credit card provider, you may not be able to complete your purchase in all of these currencies).
What about merch?
For now, PayPal will remain the only payment option for physical merch.
I’m an artist or label. Is the revenue share changing?
No. The revenue share is the same and you’ll continue to receive payments to your PayPal account. No action is necessary on your part.
