What is a Pre-Order/ Pre-Sale and how to set it up?

A pre-order is an order placed for a Single / EP or Album which has not yet been released. Pre-orders allow fans to guarantee immediate delivery on release.

But the main benefit is that you can start promoting your release prior to the release date with a buy link that you can share with your fans, blogs, social networks…etc.

An iTunes pre-sale is an optional feature you can use to sell and promote your newest album on iTunes prior to your actual release date. Fans can pre-order your music and then automatically receive their purchase on the release date. (Note: You must submit your music for distribution at least 7 days before your release date to be eligible.) Don’t Wait Any Longer. Sell Your Music Today!

When you sign up with 1710Media, your music can be available for download in the iTunes Store in a few days (Usually between 1-3 days). It can also be available in Apple Music, a companion service to iTunes offering interactive music streaming to subscribers. If your songs aren’t available for download in the iTunes Store and streaming via Apple Music, you’re missing out on music revenue.
