CDBaby Ups Cost of Selling Downloads, Passes Increase Along to Artists July 11, 2009

If you sell downloads from CDBaby, it’s going to cost you a little bit more. CD Baby is upping the rate it charges artists for downloads sold direct from it’s site. This increase will range from 9% to 25% with a 27 cent minimum.

CD Baby blamed the increase in credit card fees which range from “27¢ (for a single) to over 50¢ (for an album or CD sale) per transaction”.

Commissions on downloads sold through Amazon, iTunes and other digital retailers will remain 9%.

Going live this weekend, this move is part of a site revamp that includes the addition of single song downloads, artist pages as well as the standard album pages, download card printing and an upload utility that eliminates the need to mail in a CD.
