i just purchased an album for the first time using the Amazon MP3 link on BEA -- i'm assuming (hoping) that it's linked to an amazon associate account so the site gets a bit of a kickback from the sale Smile

i was wondering whether it would be possible to add an additional purchase option for Bandcamp... as someone who listens to a lot of small/no label independent acts, Bandcamp is my purchase platform of choice. i also realize, though, that Bandcamp wouldn't be an option for a lot of larger/major label bands, but i thought i'd throw the idea out there.

While I don't buy albums online, if this idea is possible, then it's a pretty good one.

Only a very few number of artists on BEA (relatively speaking) are on Bandcamp so if links were added, they wouldn't land correctly in a lot of cases. However, I'll look at opening up the artist's URL field so that this could be used if an artist has a Bandcamp page & then people can click straight through from the relevant artist pages.

thanks for looking into it! maybe it could even be a field that the person creating the album entry populates with a Bandcamp URL if one exists for the album.
