Why is there a service fee on the Marketplace?

Every year we’ve significantly increased the supply of beats on our marketplace without adding additional fees. Now, to support the stunning growth we’ve experienced over the past few years, we’ve instituted a Marketplace service fee that helps offset the costs associated with storing tens of millions of additional high definition audio files on our platform. The Marketplace service fee also allows us to invest in building a world class shopping experience for everyone on our Marketplace. 

For purchases on the BeatStars Marketplace, a service fee of 12% of the subtotal is added to the purchase price. This fee does not apply to purchases on Pro Pages or Blaze Players.

NOTE TO SELLERS: You have the choice to cover the Marketplace service fee for your customers. Learn more here:  How do I Cover the Service Fee for my Customers?
