There is a free version of Spotify, but it is littered with ads. You can pay for the software if you are really annoyed by the adverts. A paid subscription also gives you benefits such as the ability to stream higher quality content, and other perks.
Any purchases made are deemed to be “purchases” as per the distance selling rules. As a result, you are able to pay with a credit card without having to pay extra fees. If you are only looking for individual songs, then you may only pay with a credit card at the moment.
The number of songs on Spotify is currently unknown because the number seems to change quite often. Some songs are on there and are not available for download.

You may be able to do it manually using your own device, or if your current device has cleaning software such as CCLeaner. You may clear your cache files by going to “Edit” and edit your “Preferences” where you will see the cleanup/cache-clearing options.
