Buy your Spotify playlists on Bandcamp with this simple tool
Hype Machine has debuted Merch Table, a program that turns Spotify playlists into links to purchase music.
The first Friday of every month, Bandcamp waives its usual processing fee for purchases of music and merch on the site and sends all the money to the artists selling the product. December's edition is tomorrow, and it just so happens to fall on the week where everyone's sharing what they've listened to the most on Spotify. If you're a Spotify user who is able to toss your favorite artists more than a few coins for all those streams, Hype Machine's new program Merch Table is making it even easier to support musicians during the COVID crisis.
Using Merch Table is simple: copy and paste the URL for your favorite Spotify list into the toolbar, press "Find Releases," and the program will search Bandcamp for the songs and generate links to purchase them. Once you've done that, you can also copy the master link collecting all the different Bandcamp pages and share it with your friends.
Try Merch Table for yourself here. Even if you're not streaming with Spotify, if you've never bought something for Bandcamp Friday, tomorrow's a great time to give it a shot.
