How can we improve Beatport Music Store?

**Allow Re-download of Purchased Tracks**

Anyone can loose their data (music in this case;) someday and as such it would be very welcome if we could re-download the tracks we have already purchased at any time (even itunes allows this!)

    iTunes allows my music to move with me FOREVER. Same with amazon prime purchases. If i purchase songs from you i don't expect to repurchase them...

    What!? I got a new computer and want to get my songs that i payed for!!? I even have some songs here. What is going on?

    I will be submitting a formal complaint over this issue. I too have lost my music collection. How is preventing me from re-downloading my tracks helping anyone? If I were to try and pirate them someone else would need access to my account anyway...
    0/10. I've been utterly unimpressed with BeatPort so far. Awful glitchy, laggy website along with terrible customer service.
    Every other download site lets you re-download purchased tracks. Totally unfair. Will never use BeatPort again from this day. Spending my money elsewhere.

    Bad business practice - I want to re-download the songs I have paid for.
    I won't be purchasing anything else from Beatport

    How is preventing the re-download of purchases even helping anybody? The only group of people this affects that I can think of is people that lost their downloaded songs and thus want to re-download their legitimately purchased songs. If somebody wants to pirate songs, blocking re-downloads won't hinder them. It only strongly negatively affects people with a legitimate interest in re-downloading their songs.
    P.S.: I just did a little bit of research and found an AMA on Reddit from 2014(!) - same year as this idea was created - where apparently the CEO of Beatport said that they will "try to get this redownloading issue in the rearview for all of us" and yet this still seems to be an issue three years later.
    P.P.S: Also this idea has the second-most votes on the page right now and thus at least an explanation as to why it is not possible would be in order.

    I've lost all my purchases (1000+!!!!!) due a hd failure and I can't re-downloaded!!!! Never buying from beatport again until this is fixed.

    Ohh man just relocated to USA in a hurry and had to sell my PC fast. Just found out beatport is this low ?? time to move on to a different site to buy music. it's 2017 people , were not living in a shell anymore to tolerate this kind of bull.

    Unbelievable how this is not a thing. It's the same with juno.
    You buy games on steam, can redownload and play it whenever you want.
    You buy a song, that has literally no maintenance, and your download link just disappears. I hope more and more artists will go to bandcamp, where this is not an issue.

    I lost all my purchases during synchronization and realized that I cannot redownload. Now I hate beatport.

    у меня произошел сбой при подключении, фаил я купил, а вот скачать не смог. сейчас у меня эти фаилы запрещены для скачивания, в чем дело?

  • GuchoMusic commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Totalmente necesario! Si los compro, se supone que el track es mio! Eh perdido varios tracks.

  • t1mo3m commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I also thought perhaps an annual fee, (like insurance against fire or theft of music), would be a way of doing this.
    Register, pay, use when needed.
    Honestly, at this point anything would be cheaper than replacing all my tracks. :-|
