Q: I want a refund. Is that possible?
A: Once you downloaded one (1) copy, you cannot get a refund and it is non-refundable and non-returnable. Please see the first sentence on the HOME page. This is because some try to fraud me and say they ordered the wrong piece. Once they downloaded it, they say it was a mistake and want another piece instead. This policy applies also if you downloaded/ordered the wrong version (e.g. without TABs and you needed the TAB version). I have to be strikt and ask you to be sure to order the correct version in the first place. PayPal charges me $2.00 for every refund I give. In other words, I lose money if you make a mistake.
Q: Why don’t I just offer free PDF files of all my music?
A: I realize that selling my music goes against the new model of so called ‘free online music.’ However, please remember I spend most of my time practicing, sketching, developing, creating and notating these compositions and arrangements for TAB users and score readers. Each piece is an expression of how I see the world, and it is a true honor and pleasure to share them with you. But I must be able to make at least a modest living on my music or I will not have the chance to create my music. In other industries, no one is expected to work for free.
Q: What is the best/easiest way to shop?
A: 1. Find your scores and TABs in the menu or download the free catalog.
2. Add the pieces to your cart. We accept most Credit Cards. Some files (a few) are in ZIP format and cannot be opened on an iPhone, tablet, Android or any portable device. Double-click the file (on your PC or Apple Mac) to open it. Most files are PDF-files and can be opened on any device that has a PDF reader installed. In order to view and print your music, you will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader
Q: How do I receive my order
A: You must download the files you ordered.
Important: you have to provide us with a valid and working email address. If you don’t, you will not be able to get the password for the file(s) you just purchased. Once your payment has been accepted, you will receive an email to that email address identifying your username and password. Please follow the instructions in the email. If you haven’t received the instructions within 15 minutes, please check your spam folder. If you still can’t find the email please contact us as soon as possible for assistance. Some ISP (Internet Service Provider), such as comcast.net and others has a strong SPAM blocking system and might block my emails. Please be sure to add me to your trusted senders!
Q: I never received a download link! What do I do?
A: Some ISP (Internet Service Provider), such as comcast.net and others has a strong SPAM blocking system and might block my emails. Please be sure to add me to your trusted senders and ALSO CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER/FILTER!
If you provided us with a valid email address you have received an email/receipt of your purchase. It should look something like this:
Please click on the (underlined) link after the word: Download. Your browser should open and download the file. If not, you can right click on the link and copy it.
You can also access the file(s) directly after you ordered the music! Once PayPal accepted your payment, you will automatically be taken back to my shop to the page where you can download it.
PLEASE MAKE A BACKUP OF THE FILES! WE KEEP RECORDS OF YOUR ORDER FOR ONE (1) YEAR ONLY. AFTER THAT TIME PERIOD, YOU WILL HAVE TO RE-ORDER THE MUSIC IF YOU LOST IT.
Q: For how long can I download my purchase?
A: After your purchase you will be able to download the files for 365 days (1 year) but you can only download it five (5) times. You will need the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader to open the files. You can get it for free by clicking here.
Q: What format are the scores/TABs in?
A: The file(s) you download are in PDF-format. You will need a PDF reader to open and print them. You can get it for free by clicking here. Very few files are Zipped (for easy, trouble free download). Just double click the ZIP-file and drag the PDF file inside to your desktop.
Q: How soon do I receive the music I just ordered from Per-OlovKindgren.com?
A: Within minutes! We send you a download link to the email address that you provide. Simply follow the instructions to download the music. When prompted, enter the password you could read about in your invoice. That is all there is to it!
Q: Why are my PDFs password protected?
A: Unfortunately, many illegal copies of my music and arrangements are spread on the internet. I cannot protect myself 100% against these illegal acts but I can, and will, make it as difficult as possible! Hence every time you open any of my files you have to enter the same password that is provided after downloading. This password, including watermark, identifies the buyer so my lawyer can track them. and hopefully, stop this illegal behavior.
Q: Who is handling my transaction?
A: The complete transaction is handled by the PayPal secure server system with a strong encryption.
NOTE: PayPal is responsible for handling the credit card and other payment details. You can pay with any major credit card or VISA without registering. See how by clicking here.
It can also look like this depending on your location and country:
Before using your card, PayPal will once again ask you for your email address. It will not create an account at PayPal!!
Q: Why can’t I find all the pieces you play on the Internet in your web shop?
A: I need the Copyrights for some pieces to be able to sell them. I am constantly working on it, but it is very difficult and expensive.
You have to DOWNLOAD your music (Except the “Per-Olov Kindgren PlayBook”). Please enter a valid email address at checkout. You will receive an email with instructions how to download your selections. Please follow them carefully. If you haven’t received the instructions within 15 minutes, please check your spam folder. If you still can’t find the email please contact us as soon as possible for assistance.
