What you do:
PLEASE NOTE WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING ANY NEW REGISTRATIONS AT PRESENT!.

submission form so we know about your music and yourselves.
(It won't take long and if you want you can update it later via the
'sellers area' link on our homepage).
Send us just 5 cd's or
Records to start with (our postal address is given once the
registration is complete).
What we do:
1. We list your music
into our database under 2 sections. We also include an
information page, with the sole purpose of SELLING YOUR CD. It
can include MP3 samples, links back to your own website, reviews,
and all of the text and descriptions you want, the more the better.
Your cd cover will also be rotated occasionally on the main page at
Nightcafe with a direct link to buy it.
2. We take orders online
for your cd's and keep you updated of any sales.
What is the cost:
You pay a one off
small setup cost of £15.00 per title and then we take 25% if selling
price is less than £9.99 or £2.50 if it is £10.00 or more from every
cd sold. You keep the rest. There are no hidden costs!
Is there a contract:
There are no contracts to
sign. We are a music shop, not a record label. We hold
no rights to your music whatsoever. You just send your music
to us and we sell it, it's as simple as that.
What formats we
We accept Cd's and
Records. We can allow homemade Cdr's but they do have to look
good. Also your cd's do not have to be shrink-wrapped (but it
Are there any

By sending us an initial batch of CD's with your
one-off £15.00 registration fee you will be entering in to a system
whereby payments to artists will be made on the last working day of
January, March, May, July, September and November for sales in the
preceding two calendar months.
In the event of us having
to re-supply a product to a customer who has complained of receiving
a faulty disk, we authorize a return to us and either refund or swap
the product after our technical department has checked the product.
We reserve the right to pass on any expenses incurred in this
process. Should you require the faulty CD to be returned to you
then, this will also be billed at the rate of £5.00 per CD, (to be
deducted from your next bi-monthly payment).
If for any reason you
require your CD's to be returned please be aware that you may be
billed the cost of the return postage (this will be left to the
discretion of our management).
If any sold CD goes
missing or is damaged in the post due to no fault of our own, we
will attempt to claim the cost of the CD and postage from Royal Mail
and pass them back to you. We will not be liable for any costs
incurred and they will be passed on to the seller.
When dealing with credit
card orders, there are always risks of fraud (albeit very small).
Worldpay and Paypal who process your payments have excellent fraud
detection facilities but very rarely we do get a charge-back.
The charge-back cost and the total price of the loss will be passed
onto the seller. Please note that we will contest any
charge-back and will try everything possible to get your money back.
If you are to be billed
for any reason mentioned above, the costs will be deducted from the
money we may owe you. If we do not owe you any money, we will
send an invoice to your address and await your payment asap.
Your CD's will not be returned until any outstanding costs are
Please note: We do
add V.A.T. on to the cost of the item/s when sold. So we
will not send you the seller any V.A.T. payments. If you
are V.A.T. registered and wish to recover the V.A.T., then simply
add the tax on to the purchase price of the item/s. However
that is entirely up to you!
The Registration Fee
of £15.00 is non refundable.
Helping us to sell your product:
In your "routine" communications with the specialist music,
general music press and other media, as well your fans / followers
etc/... Please be sure to mention that your work can be purchased on
line - this gives you a better return! It will also allow people to
browse other artists' CD's on the site. Remember that if everyone
does this, everybody's sales should increase! Give them the exact
address (URL) of the web site, which is
You may wish to add a link on your web site to the above address, or
contact us for a rather nice banner graphic to link to us with!
How we promote your
products / our web shop:
We are regularly in contact with music and more general
publications to promote our shop, we also like to think that all our
artists and record companies make people aware of the shop. In
addition we are registered with many shop portals like
Shopping Village, who send customers our way, we have also
submitted our site to the major search engines. From time to time we
undertake more general advertisements in magazines and periodicals
(this is partly what we do with our cut of the sale)!
We also have a large
supply of "stickers" in the best traditions of the music
business and we would hope that you and yours stick these sensibly,
but remember that "all the worlds a shop" and that the Night Café
can ship globally! - If you would like some
