The Amazon MP3 team is constantly working to offer you the greatest selection of music available, but our ability to offer music to you in MP3 format is limited by the rights granted to us by the record companies. Currently, not all record companies grant us a license to sell their music for download in the MP3 format free of digital rights management software. You may find that certain songs or albums available in CD format aren't available in the Amazon MP3 Store. You may also find that not all songs on an album are available to purchase individually. This may be at the request of the artist or due to other contractual reasons with the rights holders.
The music you buy from the Amazon MP3 Store is charged to your default 1-Click payment method, which can be updated in Your Account. To complete your purchase, you may be asked to select or enter a payment method.
