d, You will be directed to the CHECKOUT page. Starting from 23rd March 2020, we will provide the Promo Sender service for free until further notice in order to support record labels in these hard times caused by the COVID-19/Coronavirus crisis.
Please follow these steps in order to use the service for free:
- The Summary must be 0 euros (if not, please contact us).
- Accept the Terms & Conditions.
- Select the Payment Method as "Bank Transfer"
- Click on Check Out. You will not be charged. One of our operators will approve your campaign.
Fair usage policy applies. Since the service will be free for an extended period of time, you do not need to rush and send out lots of promos at the same time. It will result in your DJ contacts flagging your promos as spam, unsubscribing from your promo lists or sending you less feedback.
