It’s hard to find good places online where you could sell your song lyrics and music. So I set on a quest and found those websites for you, my loyal readers and visitors.

Most of these websites are places where you can join, for free and some are paid, but mostly it’s one time fee and price is really low. If you believe in yourself and your music, then paying a small fee is nothing, cause you can get much more in return.

So, without any further delay, here is the list of websites where you can sell lyrics, and you can sell music online too. You will get paid to write song lyrics for other artists, or you can get paid for selling your own music.

The list is generated randomly, and I recommend to check every site, since every single of them is unique.

  1. Hi James,
    As I was going through your post, I find it so interesting to read and musical. So far, it was known to me that earning can be made by writing unique and fresh content but this website where we can sell our lyrics and songs is really very new to me. Anyway, I like it.

    • Hey Shiwangi, thank you for your nice comment. And sure, this job is very good for the housewives. Just let your inspiration flow, create amazing lyrics and you’re ready to sell it. 🙂

  2. Hello James 🙂 This post is pretty helpful, you’ve done a great job! All the people that have read my lyrics believe they have potential, they all pretty depressing and touching and people can relate to them. I only have two questions. Do I post my lyrics if they are not copyrighted?! And how much should I charge for my lyrics, knowing that I do not have a degree in writing. Thanks a lot!

    • Thank you for your kind words Patricia. You can only post lyrics that you created, you cannot sell other people lyrics. If you didn’t protect your own lyrics then I can suggest you to choose a website from the list that will protect your right once you start working with them. Regarding the price, you can check out for other artists and how much they charge for their lyrics from the websites.

      thanks for stopping by and good luck with your lyrics, if people relate to them that much, then you’re ready to ear some cash online 🙂

  3. hi james,

    i just found this article with luck. i’ve been looking for a site that can help you do this for a very long time. I found SongBay just last month, didn’t like there layout and really didn’t have much luck with them and Smash Songs, I think are out of business because judging by there site and me sending them a couple emails and them never responding was not good. I will check out the ones that you provided. If there’s anymore that you know, just send me the links. very much appreciated.


    • Hi Damien, thank you very much for sharing your experience with us. I’m sure that many people will find your comment very helpful when it comes to selling their own lyrics online.

  4. I have written songs for more than three decades now, and am selling as well as recording. Currently has four Albums.

    You can forward some of the questions bothering you to me, and even free to request for Songwriting need. Write to:

  5. It’s hard to get famous, these websites will take your money and you earn nothing.
    Better to find musician or producers, recommended to make a website there you can sell them without cost.

    I writing lyrics and anyone interested
