Customer FAQ

Orders

Can I add an item to an order I've already made?
We are unfortunately unable to add items to existing orders.

Can I combine more than one order to be shipped together?
We are unable to combine any orders.

My order includes a physical pre-order item - will you send out my package when everything is in stock?
We will hold your entire order until the pre-order release is ready to be dispatched.

My order includes a digital pre-order item - how do I download it?
You will receive an email on the day of release informing you that the digital pre-order is available to download. You can then login to your account, select order history and download your order.


Returns

Can I return my purchases?
We do not accept returns of download products, but offer a returns policy on all physical items.

The item is faulty, what should I do?
We will replace any faulty item free of charge. Please contact us via contact-form and we will promptly get back to you. We will require you to return the faulty item(s), but you will be reimbursed for your return postage. Please do not return faulty items to us without contacting us first.


Payments

What forms of payment do you accept?
You can currently pay with Credit or Debit card via PayPal. We accept Visa, Mastercard and Paypal.

Is the payment process secure?
All payments are are processed via PayPal at 128bit SSL encrypted secure page.

Why is there a delay when I pay with Paypal?
There are two ways to pay for products using PayPal. One uses your credit card and the other uses your bank account.

  1. Using your credit card. If you pay via PayPal using a credit card then once PayPal have successfully charged your card they notify us. This process is pretty much instantaneous which means you can go straight to your downloads. This is the method we recommend on 3pbeats Records.
  2. Using your checking account. If you choose to pay via PayPal directly from your bank account (PayPal eCheck), then this takes PayPal from 4 to 6 days to collect the money from your bank account. Once they have successfully collected the money they then notify us. Only then will you have access to download your order.

Some people new to PayPal choose the eCheck payment method without understanding the delay it would cause and unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to speed up this process.

Will you sell my email address to third parties?
3pbeats Records will never sell your email address to third parties. We may as well send you information on some other artists and releases of our partners, but that’s as far as it goes!


Downloads

Why can't I find my downloads when I log into my account?
Most commonly this will be because you have more than one user account with us and you are logging into the wrong account! Please check that you are logging into the same account that you used when making your purchase.

What happens if my download is corrupt/has glitches in it?
Please let us know immediately - if there is any problem with a file then we need to replace it as soon as possible. You can contact us via contact-form.

What happens if I accidentally delete all my downloads from my hard drive?
Once you have successfully downloaded a track from 3pbeats Records, the transaction is completed and the file becomes your responsibility. Make sure you backup your purchases! We place no restrictions on the number of copies you make.

The download won't start
This could be because of slow connection speeds. Download speed problems will almost always be caused by local or network issues.
- If you are using a dial-up connection, for instance, you can expect even just a couple of tracks to take quite a while to download.
- For broadband users, there are all sorts of things that can clog up your connection. If there are any network issues anywhere between your ISP and our servers it will slow the download speed down.

These are most commonly temporary issues that get resolved after a short while so our best advice is just to try again a bit later. If you are still experiencing problems please contact us via contact-form and we will check the files.

The track I downloaded isn't what I asked for?
Please let us know immediately - if there is any problem with a file then we need to replace it as soon as possible. You can contact us via contact-form.

Do you use DRM?
Files have no DRM or copy protection built in - we strongly believe that people should be treated as customers and not potential criminals.

Where is my download? I can't find the zip!
Sometimes browsers (such as Safari) automatically unzip your download. Check your downloads folder and desktop where the folder name will be the release catalogue number for example 3PLP001_MP3.
