This post explains how you can easily license my music to use in your video, game, or film in few simple steps.
1. Find the right music for your video

2. Choose the Royalty Free music license
When you found the music that adds the desired emotional atmosphere to you video, you need to decide which license suits your needs.
Note that most tracks come with 3 different price tags. What does it mean? The price you pay for the license depends on how you intend to use the music. Specifically, whether you are going to use it in a personal or commercial project and if you need it for a for-sale product.
For example, a YouTube vlog episode or a small business promo video require the Personal license. However, a paid training video or a movie that you intend to sell need the Commercial license.
You can find the details and more examples on the Royalty-Free Music License page. It’s short, straightforward, and contains no legal language.
3. Add the music that you’d like to license to the shopping cart
You can add one or more tracks at the same time. The shopping cart icon in the top menu bar will tell you how many tracks you have in the cart and what’s their total value. Go to the cart to review your order and to make changes if needed.
4. Proceed to the checkout
At the checkout page you will find a short form asking for billing and licensee information. The form only asks for your name, email and the name of your company or Web site (which is optional). The license will be issued to the name / company you specify here.
At this point you also can create an account by checking the ‘Create an account’ box.
You are not required to create the account to complete the transaction, however it is recommended if you want to access your order / download history in the future.
5. Make the payment
You can pay by credit card or PayPal. I never see, store, or have access to your credit card information.
Furthermore, my site is being scanned daily by SiteLock, the website security company that protects online stores from malware and all communications are encrypted with SSL.
International customers! All prices are in US dollars but you still can pay with a non-US credit card. Your credit card company / bank will automatically convert the price into your local currency.
6. Download the music you licensed and use it right away!
Once the payment is completed you will be taken back to my site, to the Order Confirmation page. On this page you can review the order and download the music you licensed. You can use the music immediately.
You will also receive the order confirmation including the download links by email.
Important note for YouTube partners!
You can use the order confirmation email to prove to YouTube that you have the license to use the music in commercial monetization videos. All my royalty-free music licenses allow for YouTube monetization use and the order confirmation email will explicitly say so.
Alternatively, you can use the PDF licensing certificate that you can download from the order confirmation page.
