Airbit vs Beatstars: Which Marketplace is the Best to Sell Your Beats?
One of the major challenges that beat producers face is finding a market for their beats. It is usually very challenging for many beat producers to find the right tools that they can take advantage of to sell their beats online. Beat-selling platforms are very important since they provide music producers with a ready market for them to share their work and generate revenue from it.
Such platforms have made it easy for beat producers to earn money and make a name for themselves. Some of the main online platforms for this include Airbit and Beatstars. Both platforms have revolutionized the music industry by providing extraordinary solutions for beat producers and helping them get market for their beats and make money doing what they love.
The following article will look at both these platforms to help you determine which platform offers the best services.
Airbit is one of the world’s leading online digital marketplace for beats. It provides a platform for artists, songwriters, beatmakers and producers to sell their work to interested parties. It is a popular safe platform for selling and earning money from your beats.
Key Airbit Features
One of the things that make Airbit stand out from its peers is the fact that it has an automated file delivery system. Your customers are able to instantly download your beats and your contract without you necessarily sending the files first.
When compared to other such platforms, Airbit users make the most from their beats. Airbit users get to keep 100% of the revenue that their beats generate after being sold. Airbit does not take any commission from the money that your beats make.
You can also connect Airbit to your social networks. It is easy to incorporate Airbit in your emails, Facebook account, your own website, and anywhere else you can think of. Airbit users do not need to have a website in order to have a beatstore since you can send your audience directly to your store link.
Furthermore, Airbit makes it easy for its users to get new subscribers on YouTube, get new followers on social networks, or collect emails. This is possible since Airbit allows you to exchange your beats for free for a person’s email address, or you can also choose to trade your beats for the person subscribing to you on YouTube. This helps you to get more YouTube subscribers and email sign-ups, enabling you to build strong, long-term relationships with your clients.
Airbit users also get to choose whether they want a free download to be tagged or untagged. You can also allow your beats to have the rights you want to allow or limit the usage of the beat to non-profit use only. Your clients, therefore, have an easy experience downloading your beats and recording or writing to your beats before purchasing a full license.
You can also add vocal tags to your beats with Airbit. Once you upload the vocal tags, they are automatically applied to all of your beats, helping you save a lot of time that you would have otherwise spent manually adding a vocal tag on every beat in your software. Vocal tags are very important since they keep people from stealing your beats and using them without a proper license, and also keeps your branding consistent. It is also easy to change your vocal tags or producer name since you apply the same process.
Airbit also makes it easy for its users to run promotions and change their prices. It lets you change the prices of a single beat or all your beats quite easily. It also lets you make custom coupon codes for your clients and also allows you to give your clients bulk discounts to increase the chances of your beats being sold.
Pricing and Payment
Payment by your customers after purchasing your beats are made through PayPal, Debit Card, or through Credit Card. The money is then instantly deposited into your account. The payment is secure and users are assured of any form of payment with confidence and ease.
Airbit allows you to create pdf contracts to be downloaded by your clients when they buy your beats. The contract helps to keep you and your clients legally protected and also helps them to know their rights. Airbit has pre-made templates which you can use, but you can also choose to write your own contract.
The contracts help to keep things legal and professional. With Airbit, there is no need to hire a lawyer to create a contract since you can create the contract by yourself by editing the templates, then the contracts are automatically made available to your clients to download. The clients choose which contract to download depending on how relevant it is to the license they purchased.
Airbit also automatically fills the names of the clients who have bought a beat, making you look professional as if the beat was custom written for them. This creates an impression among the clients that the person who they are dealing with is on point.
It also has a feature known as Airbeat Marketplace. Through the Airbeat Marketplace, people get a platform where they can buy beats, therefore making all your beats available on their platform too. This is very significant since it gives you exposure, and you might actually get a lot of clients if your beats are of good quality. Selling your beats on Airbeat Marketplace can also get you new clients who would not have found you otherwise.
Airbit also features an elaborate price plan. The subscriptions available are the Free Account, the Premium Account, and the Platinum Account. The Free Account is free and you are limited to sell up to a limit of 10 beats with access to unlimited websites, the Premium Account costs $9.99 per month and you are limited to sell up to a limit of 50 beats and is also able to upload custom voice tags to your beats. The Platinum account costa $19.99 per month and you can sell an unlimited number of beats with access to other wonderful features.
Beatstars is a beat leasing platform, a digital marketplace and hosting service designed for producers, beatmakers, recording artists and songwriters to license their work to artists worldwide. It was founded by Abe Bashton and is based in Austin, Texas. The company was founded in 2008 after presenting the idea of selling beats online to famous producers such as Grammy Award-winning producer Focus and multi-platinum producer !llmind.
Beatstars gives beat makers the opportunity to sell their beats with a non-exclusive license. A non-exclusive license is a type of license which does not limit a producer to license a beat to just one artist but instead sell the same beat to as many people as the producer likes. This enables a beat maker to make more money by selling the same beat again and again.
Key Beatstars Features
Beatstars has a collaboration feature which is meant for artists who would like to would like to work with several collaborators such as your writer, producer, engineer, or label, and you need a way which you can split the money your beats generate among them. Through this feature, Beatstars allows you to upload tour track, assign collaborators, sell your track, and the same time split your income among your collaborators with defined percentages.
It is also a social connection platform. Beatstars allows its users to communicate with each other, which increases the chances of a beat producer to get noticed and even make collaborations with fellow beat makers. As a Beatstars user, you are also able to communicate via direct message and links with other social networks, thus increasing your exposure as a beat maker on social platforms.
Beatstars also has a widgets feature which enables its users to embed widgets into any website or blog. The widgets are responsive and custom designed and are a great way to feature and share your beats.
There is also a feature on Beatstars called blaze player, which is embeddable in any website or blog. This makes it even easier for you to sell your tracks online. These blaze players act as instant beat stores and allow your customers to lease beats, download free beats, or make offers to you for exclusive licenses.
Pricing and Payment
Beatstars also allows you to create your own pro page having your own monthly subscription business for your customers. You also get to choose membership package options for free sample downloads, beats, and sound kits. Payments are then made to you through Paypal, Credit Card, or Stripe.
However, the maximum number of membership plans that can currently be created is 5. Beatstars allows you to choose the number of beats or kits to include in your memberships. This gives you the ability to choose an amount which you will be able to comfortably provide for your members on a monthly basis.
In this plan, Beatsars also allows you to charge your members any amount which you feel your package is worth. You also get to keep 100% of the income earned from your membership, which is paid instantly to all your accounts. This allows you to create a beat membership where the only things that are included in the plan is a specific license.
Beatstars also has Soundcloud, YouTube and Audiomack monetization. This means that your beats generate ad revenue whenever people stream your music on Soundcloud, YouTube, and Audiomack. This is very significant since it earns you additional revenue.
Beatstars has an elaborate price plan comprising of the Free, Pro, and Unlimited subscriptions. With the free plan, the maximum number of tracks which you can upload is 10. However, there are a number of services which you will not be able to access such as being able to sell sound kits and custom services, and also Beatstars will take up a 30% commission from all the income that your beats will have generated on the platform.
With the pro page plan, you pay $9.99 per month in order to be able to upload up to 50 tracks on the platform. The unlimited plan costs $19.99 to be able to upload an unlimited number of tracks on the platform. For the Pro and Unlimited payment plans, Beatstars does not charge any commission on the income that your beats generate on the platform.
What are the Pros of Airbit compared to Beatstars?
- The payments made by Airbit are quick and the transactions are smooth
- Airbit also gives you the ability to embed your beats on your website if you want
- Airbit users can also upload vocal tags for their beats not only giving you more exposure and increased sales but also securing your beatsAirbit also get to keep 100% of the revenue their beats generate unlike Beatstars which takes a 30% commission of the earnings of users under the free payment plan
- Airbit has an excellent conversion rate and a very good player
What are the Pros of Beatstars compared to Airbit?
- Beatstars users can are able to monetize Youtube views and SoundCloud streams
- Beatstars has a more appealing player design and Pro pages which are better done
Both Airbit and Beatstars are very good sites and are major players in the music production industry. Both of them are very user-friendly, reliable and have amazing features and websites with really good designs. These platforms are very professional and beat makers get to make more money than they would have made selling their beats using conventional methods.
However, I liked Airbit better since I think it is just an all round better product than Beatstars. Airbit users get to keep 100% of the income that their music has generated across all payment plans unlike with Beatsars where only users under paid plans get to keep 100% of their revenue.
Performance-wise, Airbit still takes the cake, because Airbit users get paid much faster than Beatstars users. Plus, buying beats on Airbit is also faster and easier than when buying beats on Beatstars. Payment by Airbit is instant, unlike with Beatstars which may take a while. Airbit also has an amazing conversion rate and pays stellar attention to detail.
Although Beatstars has a more professional interface and its users are able to monetize SoundCloud streams and YouTube videos, I think Airbit is a better service provider when it comes to selling beats.
That being said, I just hope this article will be helpful in helping choose the platform which you will be more comfortable selling your beats on. Good luck!👉 Learn More about BeatStars and Use the Promo Code PMH to Get 1 month FREE of BeatStars Pro Plan!

BeatStars: A New Digital Distributor At Very Competitive Price
There are more than few digital distributors to choose from when it comes to getting your music to online streaming platforms, all offering pretty much the same service for varying prices, but the latest member to the Digital Distribution party, BeatStars, might just be the cheapest of them all.
Guest post by Bobby Owsinski of Music 3.0
There are plenty of digital distributors that can post your music to the various online streaming services, and now it’s gotten to the point where the major difference between them is their cost. This price can be anywhere from a monthly or yearly fee, to a fee per song or album, to a percentage of the revenue generated. That said, none seem lower than the new kid on the block, BeatStars Distribution.
You might have heard of BeatStars already for being the source for the track used on Lil Nas X’s breakout hit “Old Town Road.” The company claims to have over 2 million users, and reportedly has paid out over $85 million in royalties already. It’s also reportedly inked a deal with Sony/ATV Publishing to find sync opportunities for BeatStar clients. Adding distribution to its offerings seems like a logical extension of those services.
Here’s the good news for artists. The cost is only $1.99 per month with unlimited track uploads! Even better is the fact that artists get to keep 100% of the revenue generated. The company claims that it’s already signed up over 4,000 artists in just the first week of operation.
Now the downside is that you have to keep paying because if your subscription lapses then all of the tracks will disappear from the various services, but at $1.99 per month that shouldn’t be much of a problem for any artist. Even if the company decides to raise the price, it’s still a great deal.
It’s also true that BeatStars caters to electronic musicians and beat makers, but the distribution part of the company shouldn’t deter artists from other genres using it to release their material.
Interestingly enough, the company has been off the radar to many within the industry. It’s located in cities somewhat away from the major media centers (Austin, Funchal, Portugal, and Porto Alegre, Brazil), but all that may change if their distribution network catches fire.
