Summary
AudioJungle is a royalty-free music marketplace operated by Envato. Under changes announced today, exclusive authors will be able to sell personal-listening versions of their music via iTunes and other similar purchasing platforms.

Already leading the way with its industry-best payment rates of up to 70%, Envato has further sweetened the deal for AudioJungle’s talented community of authors.

Under changes announced today, exclusive authors will be able to sell personal-listening versions of their music via iTunes and other similar purchasing platforms.

A royalty-free music marketplace, AudioJungle charges users a small upfront fee to license one of 180,000 available pieces of music composed by its community of authors. The system is popular with commercial-use buyers who prefer a one-off fee to a potentially hefty ongoing royalties bill.

AudioJungle’s exclusive authors earn industry-leading payment rates of 50-70%, depending on their sales volume. Its leading musicians earn tens of thousands of dollars per month selling their music, which is used on everything from marketing videos to blockbuster movies.

For AudioJungle's exclusive authors, here's how you'll benefit from today's change, which is available on an opt-in basis:

  • Manage all your content from one account – no need to create a separate, non-exclusive account for your royalty-free music.
  • Continue to sell licenses for your music through AudioJungle. Customers who discover your music through iTunes will be directed to AudioJungle for a quick, easy transaction.
  • Sell your music to an even bigger audience – including the 800 million people around the world who have iTunes accounts.

“This will give our talented authors a significant new revenue opportunity,” Envato CEO and co-founder Collis Ta’eed says.

“At Envato, we’re constantly working to add value for our community members. After all, they’re integral to everything we do.”

AudioJungle is home to more than 180,000 pieces of music, ranging from snappy sound effects to sophisticated orchestral arrangements.

They’ve been downloaded more than one million times since the marketplace was founded by Melbourne-based Envato in 2008.
