reKiosk, an indie website that lets writers, musicians (and local book and record stores) sell digital files online, has added gifting to its site.
The site now includes the ability to send gift files for free via email. Anytime a user uploads a file, they can give it away to 20 different people by clicking on the gift icon in the user’s catalog. The gift recipients don’t have to be reKiosk members, but they do have to join to download the item.
reKiosk lets creators open up a digital kiosk to sell content that they own or have the rights to sell. Sellers earn about 95 percent of sale price. Here is more about how it works from the reKiosk site: “Even better, by uploading your files, you enable the entire community of reKioskers to sell your creation from within their kiosks. Whenever that happens, you’ll always get 70% of the sale price, and they’ll collect a generous fee for marketing and promoting it.”
