Indie musicians and fans now have a new way of selling their merchandise: www.rekiosk.com. The site, described as an alternative distribution solution for independent creatives, launched last week.
Basically anyone can open a free account to sell music and books. You don't need to be a musician or writer, though. You can sell media from your favorite indie band or author.
Sale commissions are generous. Here's an explanation from the site:
We make sure that for every sale made on the site, the creator or their authorized agent always gets 70% of the sale price. But unlike other digital vendors out there, we let the user who made the sale collect the distribution commission — which is often as much as 25% of the sale price.
The site is also a social media platform where you can connect with other users with similar tastes. A "discover" tab allows you to view best sellers and search by category.
