JM-Downloads
warning 128x128Even if we thought that the problems with our paid DOWNLOADs was a thing of the past, some users told us that there were again problems downloading.
Now that we (again) investigated to solve those problems and download errors, we found that the problems reside with our used pay-service PAYPAL.   Since last year, PAYPAL has slowly by slowly changed all of their user-accounts into so called "Private-accounts".
This means that only users that hold a "company- or professional-account" are still able to drive their online-shops or shopping carts. As thru this action the return-message from PAYPAL to the shop or cart after successful payment has been blocked. Payments still can be done and will be received, but no return message confirmation to the shopsystem. That explains the problems that we and our users have had ever since.

Nonetheless: no user has to worry that he/she will loose money with us when buying something from our online offers, so you can still buy with confidence!

WE GUARANTEE YOU 100% THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR PAID EBOOKS, DOWNLOADS OR LESSONS. THEREFOR PLEASE CONTACT OUR WEBMASTER AFTER SUCCESSFUL PAYMENT HERE. HE WILL THEN CHECK YOUR PAYMENT AND DELIVER YOUR EBOOK OR PAID ITEM VIA EMAIL TO YOU DIRECTLY.
WE WILL HAVE TO KEEP UP THIS WAY OF DELIVERING UNTIL WE HAVE FOUND A NEW SOLUTION OR WAY TO SOLVE THOSE PROBLEMS.

We are really sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our users and work hardly on a better solution in the meantime!

Live-Clubs in Covid-times 2021

party
"While in Germany 2G or 3G is beeing discussed, Clubowners and Eventcompanies are facing a new reality: The run on tickets for (2G-)Partys is still going strong, but the sales of tickets for Liveconcerts are stagnating actually.

Clubowners are facing a big dilemma: many states actually are allowing events with full packed locations only under 2G-conditions.

For Clubs that means, only vaccinated or recovered people are allowed to enter - not those that just have been "tested" negative on Covid. Unlike some guests believe, Clubowners and Eventmanagers dont have the choice, if they offer fully sold out Partys or Concerts under 2G or 3G conditions. If they want to fill up their location, that only is allowed with 2G. " (Source: BackstagePro.de)

This statement shows the actual problems of the scene, especially of Live-Clubs where Livemusic is beeing played.
Of course we ALL have to serve our bit in this situation, to fight this pandemic. While many refuse to get vaccinated, the fear on another lockdown is going round again within the next few weeks/months.
