Nimbit, a PreSonus company, has announced a major update to its direct-to-fan sales and promotion platform to enable musicians around the world to sell in their local currencies.
The initial rollout, planned for May 2013, will support the following currencies:
British Pound Sterling
Hong Kong Dollar
New Zealand Dollar
In addition to support for local currencies, Nimbit subscribers will be able to set their storefronts to display in English, French, German, and Spanish.
Support for additional currencies and storefronts in other languages will be introduced as needed to meet customer demand.
Nimbit co-founder and president Phil Antoniades, told us, "Musicians around the world all need a way to create a supportive relationship with their fans, and that starts with the ability to sell direct. By adding local currencies and native languages to the Nimbit platform, we're giving them a better way to do that."
