|Some Changes To The On-line CD Store!
By Shane Murphy: FOF Records
After Discussion with Maurice I think we have a clear consensus on what to do with the on-line store. Right now all our sales come from the downloads from iTunes and the like. The actual FOF Store just sits there doing nothing, a true sign of the times. We are nevertheless motivated to offer up the full 16bit recordings for any true audio files out there and so the store will stay.
What we will do is cancel credit card sales and leave it as cheque or money order purchases after the release of our two albums now in production (so people can get a hard copy on credit when they are released). The change may not happen immediately but there is a substantial monthly charge to park the credit card accounts and GST registration for all of that. We already have other credit card accounts at the journalist org. and those will stay but not be a part of this commercial enterprise.
The links to the Store are now amended to show the purchase option to iTunes and such. We make our money there but there was no formal notification of the fact when people go to the store.
CDs are really presentation material now and gifts for the fans and the changes here reflect the changing times.
A piece of history! Here I am at Sam The Record Man with my first CD!
