Hi there! I have a quick question. How to purchase songs from Allofmp3.com if they do not accept anything but one stupid card and i even cannot apply for this card because i live in Florida! They canceled Xrost payments, and now what?

Can anyone recommend the other similar site? I like everything legal, and i am willing to pay. )))

Thanks!

I think you will find Allofmp3.com accept credit cards as payment.

As for an alternative, iTunes

Are you sure? The recording industry seem to have pursuaded Visa and Mastercard to stop dealing with Allofmp3 while they try other ways of shutting them down.

If you like everything legal you'll have to pay more than some Russian site charges.

I am not 100% sure but the website states:

We accept payment made by credit or debit cards.

Just specify the card type and payment sum. The money is added
immediately upon card authorization.


There is also an image of a Mastercard and Visa next to this statement.

I have also used this site in the past and paid using Visa.

Aha! Where you located, Lokinz? I think it is unavailable for USA. The only option i have is to pay by JCB cards, which is have geographic limit to 8 states only! Before they accepted Paypal...

Anyway, thanks )

That wouldn't surprise me, I know there has been some debate over the legality of that site.

I reside in New Zealand.

They had to stop accepting credit cards because the recording industry seems to have forced their hands on Mastercard and Visa. I don't think the site is back accepting cards again, but as commented, just because they sell songes in mp3 format it doesn't mean they are legal. They seem to be legal in Russia due to differences in the copyright law, but American law is not the same. If in doubt, I wouldn't hand my credit card number to anyone selling mp3s unless if it's a established on-line store.

Don't put your account too far into credit. Allofmp3 days are numbered.

How did you manage that?  I can't see a paypal option anywhere.
