We’re only a month away until the end of the year. We’re working on new developments to make your experience with WaTunes better and better. Today I’d like to inform you on an important update. Starting on December 1st, 2009 we will no longer be issuing payments via Checks. Ongoing (or until we launch our Rewards Program), we will only be issuing your payments via PayPal. If you are a customer that has requested for your payments to be issued in Checks. We will issue your last check for this payment cycle. On going you must have a PayPal account for us to issue your payments.
Q: So why PayPal?
We’ve quickly learned that the majority of WaTunes artists are currently using PayPal. We believe that PayPal is a great and secure way to monitor your payments (at least until we launch our program). Other reasons why we’ve decided to issue payments through PayPal only includes:
– Easy Processing Time
– Enable us to easily track payments and royalties owed
– Enhances our accounting procedures and protocols.
– Speeds up payment processing and payment delivery
– Quick import to delivery procedures.
Q: So what do I do now?
If you are not a PayPal user, please register for a FREE PayPal account by clicking here. Once signed up, please update your WaTunes account and provide us your PayPal E-mail address (Which would be your primary e-mail address used for PayPal).
Afterwards, our system will be able to keep track and issue your payments. Its that easy!
Q: What if I already have a PayPal account?
If you already have a PayPal account, please update your profile with your PayPal E-mail address. You can do so by following the instructions below:
1: Login to your account and click on ‘Edit Profile’
2: In the ‘Information’ tab input your PayPal E-mail address in the ‘Paypal Email’ field.
3: Click on ‘Update Information’
With this new procedure, this will make the process of receiving your payments easier without the hassle of any delays. As always, please post your comments if you have any suggestions, questions, or concerns.
Exciting times ahead as we draw close to the end of the year! I am please to announce that we have our new Online Trending System fully available for VIP Customers!
