When they join the platform, musicians are tested to ensure the quality of their work meets our standards. Passing this test makes someone a ‘verified’ musician. Once they are verified, they can begin to sell and bid on requests on the platform.

How can I become a verified musician?

If your primary goal is to sell scores, you may sign up here and begin uploading your scores without any additional review.

However, if you wish to work on our customers' transcription requests, kindly create an account here. To be eligible to fulfill these requests, you will be required to upload two samples of your work to your PaidTabs account. After you have completed this step, simply click the "Submit Verification" button at the top of the transcription page. Our team will promptly review your submission and verify your account within 72 hours.

What is a quality score?

A musician’s quality score is the average score based on their recent feedback combined with the test score they achieved when they registered. If a musician misses a deadline or a customer requests a refund, this can also impact the score. Customers will see a musician’s score whenever they bid on the customer’s request, e.g.: “Quality Score: 4.7 / 5 stars”.

Why quality score is important?

Based on musicians' quality score, you can know what to expect from the musician. For instance, if a musician has a quality score of 4.7/5 stars you can expect the score to be 97% accurate. You can improve that by requesting a revision. You can calculate that with a simple math: 4.7 * 20 = 94%
