    You can set it so they can't, or they can only hear selected tracks, or only listen a number of times (with the paid for version anyway - not sure if the free version is as flexible).

    I think the whole point of bandcamp is letting people hear your music though. If you don't want people to listen to your music before they pay, other platforms may be better.

    Yeah. There'll be a setting somewhere to let people make a donation if they want - I've grabbed a few things off Bandcamp and given that option I've always given a couple of quid.

    Are you worried that once they hear your music they'll decide its not worth buying?

    I dont think that no real musician is afraid of no she,ur playing the scape gout nogojones,it is very silly but the only truth if you write and let people get your work for free,they loose the interest in you all in all,and that is something you can take it however.
    In the biz of music we give music for free for default like promotional videos,radio airplay,music appeared on tv,and underground piracy distribution,there is gossip almost nobody is selling this days not only the adventured that let people rip their music for free,the trends on the internet last forever and nowadays without having at least one video with 1 million views people think you suck even if you allow them to hear and is just trends,bizarre trends.

    What you depict nogojones is that you allow people to hear all and then they do a favor to you and if they liked they donate,why because your simply not famous.

    I like in my taste to let them hear a bit and that they take the risk to purchase,I mean is the way it was in the 80s I didnt know who was those guys that had their vinyl records on the store and always toook risk to purchase their shi u know.

    I love this forum in this thread I got most of my deductiones cleared like the watar ,certainly it is the fact that the free version dont allow you to have control of your music and you have to allow people to hear all ur shi,certainly for free and that indeed the free version give you payment as a favor to you in means of freakin donation.

    Maybe is not the good platform as this guy says ,yes it dont allow you to promote ur stuff on social networks in the way of itunes where they hear a bit of the song and if they like what they hear they purchase download,thats actually what I want but I dont think this guys have a good frame of biz ,but that the artist pays before he or she gets paid,al in all.
