Order Status and Contact
How will my order be processed?
Within a day of your order, you will receive an email purchase confirmation.
Orders will be processed in batches and are typically shipped within a week of the date the order was placed.
Who do I contact to find out the status of my
There is a link on the website for “Order Status”. You will need your confirmation number from the email we sent, or you will need the ticket/receipt number from the venue if you ordered your CDs there.
The site will show you the status of each show you ordered. If a show you ordered is not listed, it has not been processed yet. It does not mean that your order is wrong or missing. Once an order ships it will be tagged as “shipped” and will indicate so when you check its “Order Status”. Please allow 7 to 10 days of mail delivery time.
3. Who do I contact regarding customer
Customer service inquiries are answered via email at email@example.com. When emailing us, please include the Band/Artist name and your Order Number in the Subject line.
1. Why are some shows available for downloads, some as CDs
and some as both?
For a variety of reasons, some bands only want to sell their recordings on CDs, some want to sell their recordings only as downloads. As the practice of selling legal music downloads continues to evolve, we expect that more and more bands will be offering their recordings
on both CDs and downloads. Stay tuned…
2. What file formats
are available when I purchase a download?
MunckMusic offers consumers the choice of two download formats: MP3 (at 256 Kbps resolution) and FLAC (loss less). There is a small surcharge for the FLAC format as it requires significantly more bandwidth to transmit. You will be prompted to choose your format before you launch the download
manager. All our downloads are DRM-free and can be played back on
any iPod or playback device of your choice.
3. Who sets the price for
MunckMusic works directly with the artists to set the prices for their products. Downloads are typically priced below CDs as they require no handling, assembly, and inventory management. Contrary to some beliefs, however, downloads are not cost-free. Web-design, data storage and equipment amortization, encoding and file specification, internet connections, royalties, software licenses, payment processing, database administration and maintenance, tech support, and customer service all add up!
1. What if the CDs I purchased are damaged or
We take great care in assuring that your product arrives in good condition. Our audio CDs are high quality, and our specially designed CD mailers are at least somewhat shock resistant.

If your order arrives damaged or unplayable, please notify us via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of receipt and we will instruct you how to proceed. Please include the following information:

When you enter in your credit card information and click

First, the purchase amount and card number is sent by our
credit card processing company to the bank that issued your card (for
example Capital One, Citi, Bank One, etc., etc.) and is checked against
your credit line. If the card number is valid, and the credit line is
sufficient to cover the purchase amount, the bank sends an authorization
code to our credit card processor saying, in effect: “ok, there’s money to
cover the purchase”. The bank also reserves the amount of the purchase
against the available credit, but it does not charge it yet. If there’s
insufficient credit availability, or a wrong card number, the bank
Second, the other verification data (name, address,
expiration, CVV2) is sent to the credit card company (i.e. VISA, MC). They
check that all the other verification data matches.
If both the
bank AND the credit card company verification come up OK, our credit card
processing company “Accepts” the transaction, and we charge the purchase
to your credit card account.
If the bank declines, our credit card
processing company “Declines” the transaction, and nothing is charged to
your credit card account.
If your bank authorizes the purchase
(i.e. there’s sufficient credit available), but the credit card company
declines, our credit card processing company “Declines” the transaction,
and nothing will be charged to your credit card account. However, in many
cases, your bank doesn’t know this yet! So it thinks that the charge is
coming, and continues to reserve the purchase amount against your credit
line! This can last up to 5 days for some banks. Unfortunately, there is
nothing MunckMix can do about this. Our best advice would be for you to
contact the card issuing bank and discuss it with their customer service
