**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!)
Let’s get some votes.
Hey Beatrort, get your sh*t together and allow re-downloads of purchased music.
after My backup drive was damaged. i tried to re-download some tracks I've purchased and I just found out that you can't download them again. I feel like i was Throwing money to the air. I purchased the tracks and now what? to buy them again?? NO WAY!!
What is this crap! I can seem to find a way to re download my tracks also. So pissed with Beatport!!
Why hasn't this been implemented yet? this is a total violation of consumer rights.
Seriously, this is something that's hideously important to have implemented.
It's disgraceful that you've allowed this to go unchecked for so long.
This forum only serves to ask more questions, such as; why would you request feedback if you're not going to listen to it?
"Let's get some votes."
There are over 1200 votes. So what now, BeatportRich?
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?
SEE YA BEATPORT!!!
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.
Lost my harddrive. 100+ songs PURCHASED from beatport that I can't download anymore. f*** your customer support !!!
Please beatport i'm always support you for many years..you must do something for that..
Yes, I was just about to ask this question myself
Never buying from beatport again until this is fixed.
