FUNCTIONS OF THE PLATFORM
Think of it as your release's VIP list. Fans eager to be the first to access your new music can sign up in advance. Once your release is ready, everyone on the waitlist receives an automated notification email. Ideally, initiate the waitlist at least 72 hours before your release goes live on EVEN.
The process is straightforward and automated, beginning to gather fan data as soon as they sign up.
EVEN is renowned for its flexible pricing models, including the fan-favorite 'pay-what-you-want' option.
Pay What You Want: Set a minimum price, but allow fans to pay more if they wish.
Minimum Price: The baseline amount a fan must pay to access your project.
Fixed Price: A single, unchangeable price for your release.
Suggested Price: The default price shown at checkout. Fans can pay more or less than this, but not below the minimum price. This model encourages generosity among your fans.
Security and Exclusivity: Rest assured, there has never been a leak on EVEN. All releases are securely protected and encrypted. Additionally, the paywall ensures that only paying fans get access.
