Isn’t it crazy how many places there are for you to sell music online these days? Just to name a few, you have iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, Bandcamp, Google Play and eMusic.
And these days, even though they don’t pay as well (yet anyway), you need to get your stuff on streaming music sites like Spotify, Beats Music, Rdio, etc.
Best Place to Sell Music Online
IMHO the best place to sell music online is wherever your fan wants to buy it (when they want to buy it). It is wherever he or she already has an account and will buy and then regularly consume your music.

Forcing your fans to buy from somewhere they aren’t familiar with just might be the difference in them buying or not buying. They might not want to sign up for another service that they don’t know anything about.
