3. Next, upload a zip file for your track stems. While optional, track stems are usually included in premium license types and most buyers will expect to have these available for purchase. 

4. Next, you can also upload a tagged mp3 for streaming. This is optional as well because if you leabe this blank we will tag your untagged mp3 for you and automatically make it the streaming beat.  After your files are successfully uploaded, the section should look like this. Click Next Step to continue once you're ready.
