Spotify to enable artists to fundraise directly from fans
This is super interesting! There’s a new „Spotify for Artists“ feature I wanted to share with both music fans and artists...
Spotify is working to launch a feature that will enable artists to fundraise directly from fans during this challenging time. Soon, they will give artists the ability to drive listeners to a fundraising destination of their choice on their Spotify artist profile pages.
This will give artists on Spotify the ability to link out to a verified funding page for themselves, for another artist in need, or for a separate initiative of their choice.
This feature will, of course, be optional for artists to leverage; no changes will be made to profile pages unless the artist chooses to participate, and Spotify will not take a cut of any contributions.
If you as an artist are a Spotify for Artists user interested in this feature, please sign up here, and Spotify will email you when it’s ready.
If you as a music fan want to help artists to love watch out for this new feature to appear on Spotify artist profiles.
