Prices are fixed on the site, at 10¢ each. Album prices however, vary depending on the number of tracks an album has. There is also an album discount of 20%, so if you want more than a couple of tracks, getting the whole album might work out a little cheaper for you.
The site has over 4,200,000 tracks to browse through, so we have no doubt that you will find something. It's one of the largest libraries, containing new releases, charts and most downloaded mp3s on the web. The site also allows previews of music before you purchase it to make sure you're getting the right song. This is a low quality preview, the actual songs you download are a much higher quality.
