One Access Point, Countless Opportunities

Merlin acts as a single point of contact to license and manage the catalogs of our membership.

  • One agreement to license Merlin’s dynamic membership, their artists, and their high quality music.
  • One consolidated report issued to Merlin.
  • One single payment made to Merlin. We efficiently facilitate payments between our partners and members.
  • One partner to rapidly address operational matters and bring attention to new features, offerings, and opportunities.

But we’re not one size fits all. The Merlin team has the experience and adaptability to customize our licensing arrangement based on the nature of each individual partnership.

The Added Value of Merlin Partnership


We act as a bridge between our members and partners. You work directly with our members, but have the benefit of Merlin’s international team to help you better understand, connect with, and access our membership. 


We regularly engage with our members and hold virtual sessions to help our membership understand how to lean into digital partner features and marketing opportunities. We also regularly issue best practices, summary guides, and one sheeters that members use to self-educate. 

First Movers

We encourage our members to experiment, participate in beta programs, and work with partners to create unique consumer music experiences. 


Our Member Operations team supports our digital partners and members with delivery, integration, and technical issues.
