What is the Self Purchase option?
Qrates offers artists/labels to purchase their vinyl directly from their funding projects at pressing cost anytime during the funding period.
Benefits to Self Purchase records include:
- Hold a select number of records to keep yourself to sell at gigs or local shops
- Self purchase the remaining number of records to successfully close your funding project
If you already know how many copies you are going to sell at your gigs, it would be best to bulk purchase soon after the project launch.
After logging in, click on "Management" inside the "For Artist" menu on the upper right hand corner of the screen.
From there, you should be able to see all of your projects, and by clicking on one of them you can see the detailed menu with the "Self Purchase" option.
Purchasing is available via paypal.
Please note that "Self Purchase" is only available during the funding period.
