Free Download Email Capture Thingy™

By crushingly popular demand, you can now collect a fan’s email address when they download a free track or album. Simply tick the “require email address” checkbox on the Edit Track or Album page, and when a fan downloads your music, Bandcamp will ask them for their vitals and email them a link to the goods. You may then extract that solid gold nugget of data from our servers with a flick of your mouse: click Edit Profile, and under the section titled Mailing List, click Export. You’ll not only get the fan’s email address, but their country, zip/postal code, and even the date they signed up. Given the power to use that information for good, or for awesome, we trust you will choose the latter. Enjoy!

  1. Wow that is so choice that you took that suggestion on board, and have so elegantly implemented it! 🙂

    At first I thought that bandcamp had “potential”, now I’m starting to think that you guys will f’ing own 2009. You’ve certainly won me over big time.

    All the best,

  2. This is a great feature, thanks! Do listeners have to re-enter their email address for every release they download, or will a cookie be stored to save them doing this for every release?
