How to buy songs?

Flipp

Hey there,

 

this may sound like a real stupid question, but how do I buy songs? I have Spotify Premium and according to the FAQ it is possible to buy songs and get them as MP3. Now I just can't figure out how to Download them (and yes, I tried right clicking on them , but in the Pop-Up menu there is no such point.)

However, I am able to make songs available Offline (since I have Premium) , but I guess this is not the same as buying songs, because I want them as MP3.

 

Maybe anyone can clarify this for me?

 

Best Regards

Hey! Welcome to the community 🙂 

 

The FAQs are in need of updating, it is no longer possible to purchase tracks through Spotify as mp3's as the downloads store has been recently removed from all countries (it was never available everywhere) whilst they focus on new streaming features and improving the service. 

 

I would suggest you have a read at this FAQ about the downloads store as well as the main topic on this issue here.

 

At present, Spotify have not ruled out the return of the downloads store in the future, but there are no current plans to restore it.

well, then they really need to change that, because that was the only reason I signed up for premium in the first place.  I will be cancelling my account shortly and going back to the free version.  A bit of false advertising there Spotify.

A bit of false advertising there Spotify. 

 

Got a link to any advertising you think is misleading? I can make sure it gets passed onto the Spotify guys.

Sorry guys in SF but you are going to lose this battle if you are not selling the tunes. Someone will develop ripping app to do this from your service... I have seen this already and it is not really good for your business.

Hey there!

Some ripping apps are actually mother**bleep**ing full with viruses! There is always folks that don't understand that with Spotify you can offline tracks for listening without Internet. Why in the earth someone need ripping apps or money for music purchasing???

Also remember to check your PC from viruses after downloading some rippers. I personally have seen one that try also install some mother**bleep**ing viruses and trojans when you try to rip songs.

Heip,

 

Still you did not answer how to use these songs that you pay for monthly and UNLIMITED playing time on  your PC in your car from cd or memory stick or from the SD card? It ain't no possible.

 

Bought already everything that I needed from iTunes and Spotify sucks in this way.

 

What about to develop Spotify app that works offline on memory stick or iPhone???

p.s. I know that those ripping apps are full of troijans...

Yea I'm with you at this point.

They should definitely make that clearer that it's only iPod Touch. Nano works too but only for local sync (songs you own as mp3).

But don't worry, you're not the first one who misunderstood that. 😉
