You can pay for your tracks with a credit card or with a PayPal account if you already have one set up . Our transactions are processed through PayPal but our customers do not need a PayPal account to make a purchase.
You can also use debit cards or 'eCheques' but PayPal advises that with these methods, it may take 7-9 days for your payment to clear. So your download information will not be instant - as it would be with a credit card
If you would like to pay by cheque or invoice, please contact us.
You only share your details with PayPal secure banking and not with us. We never get to see your credit or debit card details.
You'll find more detailed instructions on our Using the shop page, but here's a quick overview:
Our system automatically redirects you to the download area once payment is confirmed. Click on the download arrow icon to download each track.
You will also receive email containing links for you to click for each song you have purchased if it's more convenient for you to download later. If you successfully downloaded via your order in My Account, you can ignore the email.
Important: if you cannot find the download emails in your inbox, please check your spam folder. If you have any problems at all, please contact us, and we'll try our best to help you.
Please note: In the download email, there will also be a purchase code with each track. This code should be entered automatically by clicking the link, but in the rare event that this does not happen, simply copy the code and paste it into the box on the download screen. Then press Return to start the download.
If you are unable to download your tracks, please contact us. We will help you diagnose the problem and if we can't solve it, we will arrange an alternative delivery method for your tracks.
Almost all payment transactions go through smoothly with no problems, but in some rare cases emails will not go through because of spam filters, pending transactions, slow servers, etc. Please allow up to four hours to receive any emails from our system (it usually only takes a few minutes).
If you have not received any information from us please contact us and we will be happy to investigate the problem for you.
If you regularly download files of any kind from the internet, you will probably find the MP3 in the folder you normally download to.
Unless you have specified a different folder, the normal default location for file downloads is C:\My Documents\My Received files.
If you have any problems at all locating the files you have downloaded, please contact us and we will do whatever we can to help you find them or discuss an alternative way to get the files to you.

No, we're always expanding the selection of accompaniment mp3s in response to singers needs. If you require a track in a different key, please let us know. If it's one that can be added to the catalogue, we will record it as soon as possible and let you know by email when it's on the site. If you need the new key version by a particular date, please contact us.
Please note: We don't provide transpositions of operatic arias on the site unless the composer has made provision for it, but if you need a special transposition, we can still provide it for you as a special 'one-off' recording.
