When making purchases in the Music Store on BlackBerry Playbook, an additional charge is applied to your credit card.



Due to U.S legislation changes, 7digital has communicated that U.S customers using some U.S based credit cards to purchase content from their digital stores, will have a fee imposed by the bank, in addition to the charge for the content purchased.

At this time, there is no list of companies that are imposing this fee.

Please note, customers outside the U.S and using non-U.S based credit cards should not be affected by this.



7digtial is aware of this situation and is working towards a resolution. 

For more information on this and addtional payment inquiries, please contact 7digital directly.
