What is the Digital Music Centre?
The Digital Music Centre (DMC) is a repository and distribution point for downloadable digital Australian country music.
How does music get into the DMC?
Albums are provided to the DMC by partner owners ie. the owners of the recorded product (master); and the DMC digitally copies the tracks into high quality mp3 files.
How do consumers buy the music?
A consumer can only get to the DMC via the web site of a partner retailer. Although the sales are physically made within the DMC, they are then credited back to the referring partner retailer. The DMC does not make any sales to consumers on it's own behalf.
Who decides the retail price of the music?
The partner retailer decides at what price tracks will be sold to consumers. The partner owners will provide a Suggested Selling Price for the tracks on each album, then the partner retailer may set their selling price as a percentage above or below the SSP, or at a specific quoted price.
Who decides the wholesale price of the music?
The partner owner decides at what price tracks will be sold to partner retailers. If a partner retailer is happy with the resultant margin between the wholesale and retail price of the tracks on an album, then it may be "stocked" by the partner retailer. If the resultant margin is below the requirement of the partner retailer, then an album's tracks will not be "stocked" by the partner retailer.
Who promotes the music to the consumers?
The partner retailers promote the digital music to the consumers. As sales of DMC distributed music can only be made by partner retailers, then the more aggressively any partner retailer promotes the music the more they will sell.
How do consumers pay for their purchases?
Consumers pay for their digital music purchases by credit card via a secure payment gateway provided by the DMC. All received funds go into a holding account at the DMC which is cleared at the end of each month by distributing all funds to the various partners, and to statutory authorities.
