IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
You may have noticed when logging in to SoundAwesome that you are getting an ‘untrusted website’ notification. This is simply because our SSL Certificate has expired and we have not yet applied a new one and the reason for that is explained below.

Please be aware that it is your browser issuing an automatic response and NOT that SoundAwesome itself has suddenly become untrustworthy.

Our high programming standards ensure that the site IS trustworthy and nothing has changed.

PAYPAL, who are our payment processors, have introduced new ‘security’ measures designed to guard against money laundering and have insisted that we re-write our financial system to fit with their new measures. However we have had similar measures in place for 7 years with no issues and in order to fit in with their new system, not only do we have to completely re-write SAMP, their measures actually do away with the protection we already afford our purchasers.

If we were to implement their new system it would make SAMP more open to abuse and remove the protection we have in place.

We are currently in talks with Paypal although we are still awaiting a response from them to information we supplied on 3rd June. We have resubmitted our response and hope that this will be responded to in very short order.

Whilst this dialogue is taking place, no orders can be placed through the site. We have explained to them that their actions are threatening the very existence of SoundAwesome as, unless we have the trickle of income from SAMP, we cannot afford to continue to pay for the servers running the site. So far they have ignored this.

This is a totally separate issue to the SSL Certificate issue and the two issues are not related in any way (I’m aware of the tautology clause there but I need everyone to be sure of that).

The SSL Certificate is not cheap (we use a wildcard certificate which secures all bandname.soundawesome addresses, not just soundawesome addresses) and unless the situation with Paypal is resolved we will have no alternative but to close down the site completely.

Please be aware that this does NOT affect KOZFEST in any way whatsoever. We will update as events unfold, or not.

IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT THE NEW EU VAT LAWS
As of January 1st 2015 anyone selling dowloadable digital content must collect VAT from the customer and pass it on to their VAT Office. The EU has ruled that the VAT rate is the VAT rate of the country in which the CUSTOMER resides, NOT the seller (which would have been easier). This affects SAMP and so, if you use SAMP to sell your downloads (that's 'sell', not 'give away' - obiously there is no VAT [yet] on Zero Cash Value transactions) you need to know what's happening.
