Is anybody on Songtradr?

Hi guys, I just came across a site called Songtradr and was wondering if anyone on this site, uses/used it? I'm considering becoming a member there(because they seem to be saying all the right things) but I wanted to ask around first.
https://www.songtradr.com

Cheers,

Ken

Looks leggit. The fact that they have a telephone number on their main page +1 424 744 8190 gives it a personal feel. Haven't used it yet but indeed in promises interesting options:

Thanks for the reply, @oorlab . Yes, with no membership/submission fees and unlimited uploads, it's quite tempting to say the least. Haha.
But I'm in no hurry so I'll wait for more replies.  :)

Thanks again, oorlab.

Hi @ImKeN and @oorlab,

Looks good to me too. Hadn't heard of it before.

Found a couple of interesting vids that go into the site in more depth...   and

I'm planning to join.

Later,

Nice, Stan(@smajor) ! Thanks a lot, I'll take time to check the videos out over this week.  :)

Looks promising to me. I have recently had 11 songs licensed with Songtradr and am expecting first royalty payments this summer. I'll let you know how it all goes. Cheers. Kris.

Anyone can put songs up just make sure they are well recorded and produced and then just go for the song demands on the deals board. Lot's of patience required. I got turned down for deals a hundred times before securing my first one. There's nothing to lose just go for it.

Good thread @ImKeN, I completely missed it, thanks for sharing. Ok @Kris songwriter I might try it as well, thanks for your feedback! Did you already earn some pennies with it? Or does 'securing' mean that you're actually being payed for each 'play'?

Secured means licensed which means use of your songs which means royalties building up. It takes about 6 months for the cash to start arriving. You follow your song use directly on the site in your account section. I'll be able to say more soon when my first payment comes in. Cheers. Kris

I joined this about a month ago and it's definitely legit :) I really don't expect to get licensed, but you never know :o Although it's not completely free, because you have to start buying points, once you've used up the free ones they give. You need these points to submit your songs to any of the offers  ::Suzy::

Hi guy,
I have decided to register with Songstr. I have many songs lying about and havenít done anything much about it, meaning many are not even copyrighted yet. There is a section about ownership in the submission column. Does that mean, I get automatic copyrighting or do I still have to copyright my songs separately first? Thanks.
