Any member can set up genre specific stores for free, adding genre specific content to their store. Whenever they converse or share into genre specific local conversations and global clubs, an icon appears telling other users what category the member user is at time of posting: fan, publisher, or retailer (representative). When other members select the retailer icon, they can buy from someone local instead of iTunes or Amazon. Publishing content is free.
