Music is an essential part of the shopping experience. It encourages customers to stay longer, spend more and keeps them satisfied. 

Our licence allows you to legally play music at your premises as background music (from any source) and as music on hold and to copy music for both those purposes.

If you have other music uses such as live performances or DJs in your store, extra tariffs may apply - contact us to find out more. We also have a licence for music use in your head office or corporate offices.
