iTunes will be highest priority to buy from. If you are able to, please also buy from the other platforms.
DO NOT GIFT THE SONG OR ALBUM. It has been reported gifting albums and songs do not count for Billboard Charting because gifts are considered unsolicited.
Billboard will only count 1 copy per sale, so we recommend to only buy 1 copy per account.

Places to Buy Physical Albums from:

  • Hello82

  • FYE

  • Walmart

  • Barnes & Noble

  • Tower Records

We would prefer if you buy your albums from Hello82 or FYE. Hello82 and FYE count for both Hanteo and Gaon charts. You can only buy up to 4 albums at a time. If you buy more than that, your order will be invalid for BB charting.

This is mainly because people tune into the radio when they are commuting to work or riding in the car.
