Faber's E-Partners Scheme

E-Partners Logo.jpg

The last decade has seen an increase in illegal websites offering unauthorised sheet music downloads of works which are protected by copyright. Faber Music has prioritised the development of a scheme which approaches this problem with creativity and imagination and provides an effective, commercially viable solution.

What is the E-Partners Scheme?

The E-Partners scheme was developed in order to enable skilled music arrangers to create and sell digital sheet music via their websites with full authority from the rights holders. Our E-Partners also gain unrestricted access to an expanding hub of licensed digital content by Faber Music and our content-generating E-Partners. The result is a growing network of niche "boutique" e-tailers providing a high-quality, value-for-money, legal alternative to the unauthorised and typically inaccurate sheet music available from illegal sources.

Who is the scheme for?

The E-Partners scheme has been carefully designed to cater for any type of e-tailer.  Start-ups, established stores, individuals, large multi-national corporations, creators of music content, re-sellers of existing content - we have a model to suit every requirement.

 How does the scheme work?

If you already have a website:
If your site already has a shopping cart facility we will establish a data feed from our systems into your product database in order that you may re-sell the contents of the E-Partners hub via your own store. This is our Standard Integration model (see below for costs).
If your website does not use e-commerce we can build a fully customized digital sheet music store which matches your site but is hosted and maintained by Faber Music. This is our Premium Service model (see below for costs).
You will receive a commission of 25% of the price paid by the customer for all sales of digital sheet music via your Web store.

If you do not have a website:
We will build a fully customized digital sheet music store using style guides and logos provided by you. The store will be hosted and maintained by Faber Music. This is our Premium Services model (see below for costs). 
You will receive a commission of 25% of the price paid by the customer for all sales of digital sheet music via your Web store.
