On idefimusic.com you can create a page and sell your original music for free. You set your own pricing and determine how your music is packaged (single, EP or Album).
What happens after your music sells is what makes idefi unique. When your music sells, you earn reward points which open services of a traditional record label. These rewards increase as sales increase. There are also no contracts, we don't take ownership of your material and there is never any recoupment back to idefi.

idefi never charges the artist upfront for any of our services. We primarily earn money from the sales of your music. We also allow you to decide what percentage you keep and what percentage you give to idefi.
This pricing structure gives you the freedom to develop your career at the rate you choose and puts the emphasis on idefi to promote you and your music.
How many rewards points do I earn for each sale?
You get to choose the amount of each sale you keep and which part goes to idefi. This decision directly affects the rewards points and works like this:
15% to idefi, 85% to you = 0 rewards points
25% to idefi, = 75% to you = .5 Point per $1
50% to idefi, 50% to you = 1 Point per $1
75% to idefi, 25% to you = 1.5 Points per $1
100% to idefi, 0% to you = 2 Points per $1 (this will be setup as a button that allows you to "crowdsource" your fans to get to that next level)
