In their announcement, YouTube was vague about the details, but did say it will be rolled out around the world in the next few weeks.

Fans will be able to buy artists' merchandise, digital downloads, concert tickets and even unique experiences like meetups. These features are made possible through affiliates like Topspin for merchandise, concert tickets and experiences; Songkick for concerts; and iTunes and Amazon for music downloads.


More details will be announced at a panel hosted by YouTube in New York City's Mercury Lounge on October 20. The panel will include a number of independent artists who have used YouTube to further their careers.
