The Chart is compiled from data provided by, "8,000 chart-reporting retailers, who together represent an estimated 99% of the singles market" so unless you unlucky enough to buy a copy from the missing one per cent, it will be counted.

A hundred paid streams or 600 free streams, count as one physical copy by the way.

if the location or identity of outlets selling single tracks that returned results for inclusion in the charts, was widely known, it would be possible for record labels or artists to manipulate the charts to their own ends. it has happened in the past......
