|Why do I get "You have not selected any music to buy..." error message?|
When I try to checkout the songs in my shopping cart, "You have not selected any music to buy. Please try again." error message appeared, but I clearly had songs selected in my shopping cart. What could be the reason?
LakTunes Support Answer:
We only sell songs after getting the selling rights from artists or persons who own the rights to the songs. We are still working on getting the selling rights to some of the songs that are listed on Laktunes. Hence, we have not enabled these songs to be sold yet. When you select the songs and click the "Checkout button", the "Confirm Buy" page appears next. On this "Confirm Buy" page, you will see: "Songs you are able to purchase at this time:" section for the songs that we are able to sell to you and "Songs that will be placed in your wish list:" section for the songs that we are not able to sell at this time. The songs you are not able to purchase will be placed in "My Wish List" section for you to purchase at a later time once LakTunes enable them to be sold.
So, you are seeing this error message "You have not selected any music to buy" because all the songs that are in your shopping cart are "non-sellable" songs at this time.

|Why should I buy songs when I can download for FREE from other sites?|
|Currently there are many other sites where you can download Sri Lankan songs for free. So, you might wonder why you should pay Laktunes and buy the songs while you can get it for free.
Here's Why: There's a lot of people involved in creating each of these songs and it takes up a lot of time,money, and energy to create a song. So, if you get a song for free from one of the illegal sites, that means you are stealing. Specially in Sri Lanka, most of the artists are in the middle class and does not earn too much money. So, that is why we all should encourage a culture of paying for these valuable creations. By purchasing the songs, you pay the fair share for the artist, lyric writer, musician, and any other people who might have put their valuable time and money for creating the songs.
So, PLEASE DO THE RIGHT THING!!! PROMOTE A NEW CULTURE OF BUYING SRI LANKAN MUSIC TO HELP AND ENCOURAGE THE SRI LANKAN ARTISTS TO CREATE MORE AND MORE OF YOUR FAVORITE SONGS!!!
