Nope. With our guest checkout process, you don't have to create an account. You'll be able to download digital files at any time using the Sales Order number for your purchase.
But keep this in mind: in the same amount of time it takes to do the guest checkout, you could create a CD Baby account. Once you've created an account, all your future download links and purchase history will be housed in one place, and you won't have to provide the same information every time you shop with us!
With CD Baby, your info is totally secure, and we won't share it with any third parties —with one exception: we let the artist know who supported their career with a purchase. We give them your name, email address, and city/state information. If you don't want the artist to have that info, you can easily opt to make anonymous purchases on CD Baby.
⏰ You have from NOW till March 31, 2020, to make a purchase from our store, here is why.
You will still be able to obtain your previous purchases after March 31st, you just can't make new purchases after that date.
