Developed by musicians, for musicians, UK-based Music Gateway provides a global business platform for musicians and industry professionals to find session work or connect with the right talent to complete their projects. Music Gateway’s inbound and outbound payment processing capabilities are powered by the PacNet Services, a Vancouver-based international payment processing group of companies with over 19 years’ experience in fulfilling the payment processing needs of companies around the globe.
Music Gateway has already attracted thousands of members, each of whom is now registered to use this innovative site. It is a safe place for creative collaboration, but it also offers highly relevant tools that make it easier for artists to manage the business side of their careers. The platform combines every aspect a professional musician requires in one easy to use package. Music Gateway will rely on PacNet’s sister company, Chexx Inc., to send payments on behalf of members. Chexx Inc. specializes in sending payments to beneficiaries in virtually every country. No stranger to the music industry, Chexx Inc. currently works with some of the leading firms, sending high volumes of multi-currency royalty and affiliate payments around the globe.
The brainchild of founder and CEO Jon Skinner, Music Gateway is poised to change the way artists market themselves, find projects, collaborate and connect. The business platform is uniquely designed to empower artists to branch out across borders. A key feature of the Music Gateway platform is the creation of an account that allows the artist to receive payment or to pay other users for their services.
“Through PacNet, users with an account at Music Gateway can accept payment by credit card, debit card or local electronic payment from countries around the globe, yet receive funds quickly, in the currency of their choice,” says Brian Weekes, Head of Sales for PacNet’s European arm.
