I have a few sites about native american flutes (in Dutch) where I promoot Wikiloops. Now I have made A cd with Only percussion of differnt musicians to show that there is enough to choose on Wikiloops if you only use percussion. But I would like to give some albums away as promotion. So if I buy a dowload ticked can I give it Away to someone and does this person have to be A member to download with a ticked ?

Rian,

I'm no expert in this, but as far as I understand https://www.wikiloops.com/knowledge/download_tickets.php and https://www.wikiloops.com/download_tickets.php you don't have to be a member if you want to download a CD with a ticket. You might have to visit that second link tho to give in your ticket number(s).

Should I be wrong, anyone knowing more please correct me.

Haven't tried to download a ticket, maybe I should do just that... good idea of you!

Cheers,
Wolfgang

Edit: just tried it - bought a ticket, received email and a pdf about it, closed my browser and gave the ticket ID and download instruction to a colleague. He will try it later and tell me if that worked.

Cheers again,
Wolfgang

Sorry Rian, just asked the colleague - and he didn't try yet. But he has the data, so it should work...

Maybe you can try the same? I mean: get 1 ticket (2,40€ or so), and give it to someone after closing and reopening your browser (otherwise I think it's possible that the ticket becomes active for your browser session). You can download the information as a pdf before closing your browser, but you'll also get it via email, so you could just forward that mail like I did.

Should work as I understand it - admins please correct me if I'm wrong.

Good luck,
and I hope this helps,
Wolfgang

Hey @all,
just to confirm:
People do not need a members account to use a download ticket, that'sthe whole point of offering this seperate thing to our members accounts.
You may pass on the download ticket code which you will receive after a download ticket purchase to someone, and they will have to visit the download tickets page on wikiloops, enter that code into the "reactivate download ticket" box, and may continue to downloading either 12 single tracks or one album without any further need to sign in.
Sorry for taking a bit to reply, times at work are totally crazy these days :/
