I create a playlist via whatever service (in most cases, for free) then I will pay $10 ($7 for 5 cards + $3 for shipping) to be able to share a QR code (something I could print for free- or skip the middleman and just email the link or post to twitter/facebook)… to my spotify or Youtube playlist.

Services like Spotify require the receiver to have a subscription to play on mobile devices. Using YouTube or 8tracks does not require the receiver to have a special app, except a QR code reader for devices without NFC. … I must have missed something, this doesn’t sound convenient at all, and it doesn’t really seem like a sound premise for a business.
