Offer and pricing

Any user who uploads a song to the Platform is considered an "Artist". To upload a song, Artists will need to create a ClapCharts account and fill in the "Upload a track" form. Validating this form constitutes a contract between you and ClapCharts with respect to your use of the Platform. This contract is confirmed as soon as our confirmation email is received. This confirmation email is sent to the email address provided when creating the ClapCharts account.

A track can be uploaded to the Platform only one time.

All fee for the upload of a new track must be paid in advance or when the track is being uploaded to the Platform.It is possible to pay using Visa, Mastercard or any other payment method offered during the payment process.

When uploading a new song to the Platform, there can be a delay that generally won’t exceed 48 hours before the song can be featured in the playlists. This delay occurs in order for ClapCharts to ask enough listeners for their opinion and get a relevant feedback.

Once a song has been successfully uploaded, Artists can log on to the Website at any time to check their tracks’ statistics in real time.

For all track uploaded after the 1st of March 2018, our pricing is detailed on our Pricing page.

For all tracks uploaded before the 28th of February 2018 included, there are special limited conditions:

  • Pricing: uploading a new song to the Platform is free.
  • Airtime: the airtime period for a new track upload is 45 days, starting as soon as the song is available to be featured in the playlists. At the end of the 45 days of airtime, tracks uploaded during our limited launch offer can be aired a second time for a period of 31 days. Any track that was aired for 45 days and aired again for 31 days cannot be published again to the Platform.

At any time, ClapCharts can change the conditions for Artists to upload tracks to the Platform. In such case, the new conditions will apply only to songs after the condition changes. In case of a significant price increase or decrease in our features, you will be notified of these changes at least six (6) weeks in advance, and they will apply only to songs uploaded after the condition changes.
