Encore Pay: Upgrading the Music Industry

Introducing Encore Pay: Upgrading the Music Industry

When it comes to getting paid, the music industry is stuck in the past.

Today, you can order a taxi, rent an entire apartment, and even hire a private jet (!) all without a single cheque being written or a bank note changing hands.

The truth is, cashless payments are becoming the new standard: they’re faster, simpler, and safer, and already economists are predicting that in just 4 years debit cards will overtake cash as the most frequently used payment method.

So why is the music industry, an industry of artists and innovators, still relying upon outdated technology to manage its finances?

We decided it was time to bring musicians the technology needed to revolutionise the industry in the form of not one, but three major updates.

Our CEO, James, gives you the lowdown…

Click on the links below for more details:

  1. Automatic payments. Never chase another payment from a client again – all payments are now transferred directly into your account 48 hours after your gig. Simple.
  2. Deposits as standard. You can have total peace of mind when accepting Encore bookings – we now provide secure deposits on all bookings.
  3. Transparent quotes. We’ve designed new tools to make negotiating prices with clients crystal clear. Unlike an agency, we want you to speak to clients directly through Encore, so you always have total control over how much you’re earning.

To start benefitting from these changes, download the latest version of the Encore app on Android and iOS or head to the updated website.

Here’s to the future of music!
