Download Cards 101

Distribute your music easily and affordably from your website.

Each Download Card features your artwork on the front and a unique redemption code on the back, which allows a fan to download your album (or any other media) at your website. You decide the selling price (or give them away for free) and you keep 100% of the profits.

Each Download Card is about the size of a credit card and is made from high-quality .30 mil plastic.


How It Works

The simplest and smoothest redemption platform available.

We’ll send you a snippet of HTML which you’ll paste into your website. When a fan visits your site they’ll click a redemption link, which will launch your redemption platform. They’ll then be prompted to enter their redemption code and download your media. It could be a single song, an album, a music video, an e-book, or any other media you want to deliver. (Click the 'Launch Demo' button below to see how the redemption/download process works)

Want to collect email addresses from fans as they redeem their cards? How about a zip code or phone number? No problem. You can collect any data you want.

Case Studies


MercyMe used DiscRevolt Download Cards to pre-sell their sixth studio album The Generous Mr. Lovewell while on tour during Spring 2010.

The Download Card campaign helped the album debut at the No. 3 overall slot on the Billboard 200, selling more than 88,000 units - the group’s best-ever sales week.

Case Studies

Sidewalk Chalk

Sidewalk Chalk, named 2010’s best local hip hop act by the Chicago Reader, sold their debut EP The Snacktime EP via Download Cards at live shows.

By selling Download Cards instead of CDs, Sidewalk Chalk was able to save as much as 75% in manufacturing costs and keep 50% more profit per sale.

Of course, your Download Cards come with your free redemption platform where fans will enter their redemption code and download your media. This will be displayed as a link on your website. No set-up fees whatsoever; what you see is the full price you pay.
