Frequently Asked Questions
Can I still download songs without using Amazon Cloud Player?
After your Amazon MP3 purchase completes, you can click "Download Your Purchase" and your music will download without having to go to Cloud Player. Single songs can be downloaded using your browser, and full albums can be downloaded immediately after purchase using the MP3 Downloader.
To have your Amazon MP3s download automatically after purchase, visit the MP3 Settings page and select the option to Automatically Download.
When you make a purchase from the Amazon MP3 Store, it's automatically saved to Cloud Player in case you ever lose access to your music. This is a free feature and doesn't cost you anything. If you ever want to download your purchases in the future, they'll be available in the Purchased playlist of Cloud Player.

Why canít I purchase using my Shopping Basket?
The process to purchase MP3 music on Amazon has changed. You will no longer need to add MP3 selections to your shopping basket, and all MP3 purchases will now take place by our "1-Click" purchase process. Upon clicking the button to buy MP3s, you will be asked to review your order, and your purchase will be completed using your preferred 1-Click payment method. MP3 purchases are stored for free in Cloud Player, where you can listen to or download your purchased music. Once you've completed your purchase, you also have the ability to download MP3 purchases directly to your computer without launching Cloud Player. 1-Click ordering for MP3s stays active even if you turn off 1-Click ordering for other purchases on your account.
