No. We believe new artists with small or zero marketing budgets should have a way of growing & promoting their music for free. You can earn credits for free by reposting tracks you like and contributing to the community in other ways. You can spend credits to request reposts from other artists and run campaigns.
If you would prefer not to repost music from other artists, or are looking to promote tracks in a hurry, buying a Credit Pack can be a good option (and it supports the development of RepostExchange!)
No. Credits must be earned by reposting and/or purchased via Credit Packs. Pro Plans unlock powerful extra features which enable you to target a larger audience more quickly and efficiently, thus helping you to maximise the potential of your credits. You can find details of what’s available with each plan here.
Credits which are paid for never expire. Credits you earn for free are affected by our Inactivity Fee (10% of credit balance removed every two weeks if you are not ‘active’ - reposting at least ONE track every two weeks.) This helps us control the supply of credits in the system.
Pro Plan members are NOT affected by the Inactivity Fee.
Our paid plans are based on a standard subscription model - when you sign up, you are agreeing to be charged monthly. The billing date is the same day each month.
Some of our Credit Packs include free months of Pro Plans. Claiming free months is optional, but in doing so you are agreeing to subscribe to that plan and will be charged on a monthly basis after your free month(s) run out. Plans can be cancelled at any time by moving to the ‘Free Forever’ plan. By doing this, you will keep your Pro benefits until the end of the billing period, but will not be charged again.
If you already have a Pro Plan subscription and you buy a credit pack which includes a free month of the same plan, you will not be charged for the following month. Free months will ‘stack’ if you buy multiple credit packs in this way.
IMPORTANT: Free months will not be applied if you are already subscribed to a higher tier plan than that included with the credit pack. For example, if you are on the Network Plan and purchase a 2500 Credit Pack, you will NOT receive a free month of Artist Plan (as this would downgrade your account).
