MicroPayment Service. 03/2013 - 05/2015.
A mashup of flattr and personal radio: Automagically distribute monthly donations to all artists (and involved creators) whose music you are listening to. This is adore.
No matter if you already paid for the music you are listening to or not. adore recognizes the tracks you play. Depending on how often a track is played, all artists receive more or less. It’s up to you to define your monthly amount of donations.
Most importantly, it’s a tool for non-established artists who lack a distribution infrastructure. The service has been drafted with unsigned artists in mind. It is their listeners and core fans who support these niche artists most. With adore, financial revenue doesn’t stop with the purchase. Also, compared with streaming, the pay per play for artists is much higher — even when the donation is low.
