Make money selling your compositions and arrangements

Score Exchange is an innovative platform, allowing composers and arrangers to quickly monetise their work. If you create arrangements, or new compositions or you run a publishing company there's a good chance that someone else will want to use your music.

After your music has been purchased, Score Exchange uses PayPal to send your money to you each month.

You don't pay anything for:

  • Signing up as a seller
  • Uploading and publishing your music
  • Selling your music
  • Receive your money when your music is purchased

So how does Score Exchange stay in business?

When your music is purchased, the actual process is this:

  1. Score exchange buys the music from you at a discount
  2. Score Exchange sells the music to the customer at the price that you set
The discount level varies from 55% - 25%. The more music you sell, the more money you receive - learn more in the FAQ
