Good move Envato! I can vouch for Payoneer too. Used it for my Elance account, very convenient and loading fees are not bad compared to Paypal transaction fees.
Thanks for your hard work AJ staff, Audio Jungle is a great portal and wonderful tool for musicians! However, I have to say that your rules are as clear as mud and really need improvement. I just had 10 packs rejected because they used segments of the same source file or used different lengths of the file suchas tails, tags, intros etc for radio. Why they don’t allow that I do not understand however here is what the rules say…. My friend who recommended AJ to me also said beware of the rules as they are very “difficult”. Here is what the rules say….
“Before You Create Your Pack: Please note that each music pack can only contain a maximum of 10 tracks. The total duration of all tracks must not exceed 30 minutes. You cannot use the same track across multiple packs. Once a track is used in a pack, it cannot be used in another pack. Your preview file must contain ALL tracks in their entirety and must also contain our watermark.”
Admin people, please could you add this to the rules so that other newbies don’t run into the same problems.
“Packs may NOT contain segments or varying durations of the same track”.
As I have now been told having uploaded umpteen different packs. This is what my reviewer said.
“Sorry Dan, but this submission does not qualify for the Music Pack Category.
A music pack contains different tracks, not one theme with various segments or versions.”
Does it say that anywhere in the rules at present? Correct me if I am wrong.
Anyway I hope this is helpful to others.
Please note the following rule clarification regarding submissions containing multiple files. This is to ensure the customer has all the information they need when they purchase your audio:
If you include multiple variations with your submission to the Music Category:
- The length/duration you enter on the upload form should be the duration of the longest item, and not the combined total of all tracks.
- Your description MUST list the name and length of each individual track. For example:
Track A: 1:04
Track B (No Drums): 1:04
Track C (Shorter Loop): 0:35
The rule is slightly different for Music Packs:
- The duration/length for Music Packs SHOULD be the combined total of all tracks included. So if you include 10×1:00 tracks, the total length/duration should say “10:00”.
- Your description MUST list each item and the corresponding duration of each track. For example:
Track D: 3:32
Track E: 4:01
Track F: 2:56
IMPORTANT : If the length you enter is incorrect, we will change it for you. But if the description does not include the correct information, we will soft reject the item and ask you to fix it.Many of you have already been doing this, but I wanted to reclarify this rule so that there is no future confusion for customers purchasing your audio. Thank you for understanding.
