How to enter information into Fannabee:

Place the item you want to submit in front of you, so it is easy to read and enter the information

(Remember you must have the exact release in your possession when you submit it!).

Here is where you have to go to add a release manually:
The first thing to do is search Fannabee to check your item isn’t already in the database, don’t waste your time entering a duplicate! If it isn’t here yet, you can enter it. Depending on the release, it could take from few minutes to many hours to enter. It is recommended that your first submission is a reasonably simple release, so you can learn the process before moving on to complicated releases with many tracks and artists.

1 – Category

Go here and enter the correct category your item belongs to: Album, Single, Video, Movie, Memorabilia, Compilation, Book

2 – Main Artist

Now enter all the artists involved in the release starting from the main artist.

You can enter things like barcodes, matrix / runout information, and other such codes and numbers. Catalog numbers is mandatory, if there are more than one please enter all of them.

4 – Images

Images are required. If you do want to add an image, you can drag / upload images from your file system onto the “drop zone”. You can continue doing this until all the images you need are uploaded. All the images will then appear on your submission form, where you can reorder and and delete images as needed.
