  • Does the beat I buy have the girl's voice on it (saying 20dollarbeats.com)? No. When you add a beat to your cart, then pay for it with PayPal or the other payment options we offer, you will be presented with a download screen to get your files right away after purchase (Except for stems and Exclusive Orders) as well as get an email with your links. The linked files are the full beats without the vocal tag. The producer's tag may be in some beats if they prefer to add it; you will hear it in the samples on the site, so if you hear it there, you'll hear it in the one you get.

    • Plan B: Make a $100 deposit and make 2 remaining payments (50% of the balance) split within 60 days. i.e.: Beat is $500, you put $100 to hold it, the remainder is $400, you then pay $200 within 30 days, and the rest ($200) within 30 days of that (60 days from deposit)
