Allofmp3 Pissed Off At Credit Card Companies; Plans To Fight Back

from the no-surprise-there dept

Yesterday, we mentioned that Visa had dumped Allofmp3, saying it would no longer process credit cards for the site. Today, Mastercard followed suit. This has Allofmp3 a bit angry, saying that they will do whatever possible to get credit card processing turned back on. They point out, once again, that they have never been convicted of any illegal activity, and previous investigations have shown them to be legal. Of course, just because you're legal, doesn't mean that a credit card company has to process your transactions.

    Funny, i had no problem refilling my Allofmp3 account with $15 last night with my MC. People can complain all they want, but Allofmp3 offers the right service at the right price (my choice of compression and no strings attached to the mp3 file). The music industry can complain all it wants. They're just pissed because their business model of gouging the public and the artists for their own personal benefit is dying. Get with the times i say. Say goodbye to the days of taking all of the money for your fancy offices and fancy cars. All the while lying that they are protecting the artist. I will continue to DL from allofmp3 and supoort the artists by going to their live shows.
