I've had good luck dealing with CD Baby. Just got another check from them, in fact!

Yep, I've had a look at that and it's good, but since I opened this thread I have found another, www.thelisteningzone.com they offer the recording artist 70% of monies taken and you get to set the price. Pretty cool. What does it cost for Baby and what are the splits?

Check out their website for details. If you're only moving downloads, you may not need CD Baby, who handle both downloads and physical CD's.

the small print seems dodgy with that...

If you want to properly sell music, look out for a distribution company that sells your music on I-tunes, rhapsody, Napster and stuff... Rather than directly, I'm not in my room at the mo, but I can check for some companies that I had to research and post them up later on!
