How you can help Ronan's chart position
« on: February 13, 2009, 09:54:26 PM »

OK well...I assume that most of us really want this album to do well in the charts and maybe we can each do our bit. Here's what I know about chart contributions, but if anyone has any additional info, please share it.

Physical sales:
If you live outside the UK and order a CD from a website in the UK - it won't count towards the charts. Orders only count if shipped to an address within the same country where the website is based. Ask someone in the UK to get it for you if you can.
I haven't managed to find out whether physical sales off amazon count at all - some people say yes, some say no. If you want to be on the safe side, use HMV.co.uk and a shipping address in the UK.

Downloads:
According to the UK's Official Chart website, the following stores definitely count when you download digital music:
Chart eligible retailers include:
7 Digital, Big Noise Music, Bleep, DX3, easyMusic.com, Woolworths.co.uk, HMV, iTunes, Karmadownload, Meantunes, MSN, myCokeMusic.com, Napster, OD2, Recordstore.co.uk, Tiscali, The Music Engine, Virgin, War Child and Wippit.

I assume that it doesn't matter where you live in order for your download to count.

Apparently, amazon downloads do not count.

Thanks Janina. Good to know my 7digital downloads count to the charts  :D

I wonder if the purchases made via Ronan's official site would count to the charts. I hope so!

Definitely not if they're shipped to overseas addresses chick.

Would any of our members in the UK offer to help others get the CD? Can you post here so people can contact you?

You might want to consider signing up with paypal Jill, it's very handy and you don't even need to provide credit card details, a bank account is sufficient.

Ronan was interviewed on Real Radio yesterday and he said that Time After Time wont be released as an actual single, its just what the radio stations are choosing to play to "advertise/promote" the album. The fact that it is already available to download means they are not interested in a chart position for the "single". Hopefully if they do a bit of TV/radio promo and some well timed TV advertising around Mother's day then he will do okay sales and chartwise for the album which is the important bit. The good thing about this album is that it just reminds people that he is also a solo performer. :wink:

...yeah - in two countries. Screw the rest of the world  :roll:

But yes obviously it's the album that we need to get into the charts and it'll help if some of us international fans can contribute to that as well. If I ordered straight off amazon, it wouldn't have any impact at all.

But maybe now they see people from all over the world order album, maybe they bring it out in more countries
Our mothers day is in May, so he would be in time for that.  :wink:

Has anyone else from outside the UK been having troubles buying off 7digital lately?

I never had any problems until recently when I wanted to buy a song, it told me that it wasn't available in my country :?

Which payment method do you use?

I haven't bought anything in quite some time so I don't know. Is your address data stored in your user profile on 7digital?

Oh yes I just tried and it won't let me get the track either. It probably checks your IP address  :?

Haha, I have just bought Time After Time for the second time, thank you very much 7digital...  :roll:  I mean I *can* buy the song although I'm not from UK, so maybe you should try it again white_lily? I used credit card as a method of payment
