Cart/credit card gateway for mp3 files
Have a life coach client looking to sell his spoken-word audio files.

I have a client who is a life coach - he makes appearances at conferences and seminars and generally makes a living out of speaking to crowds. Motivational material, stuff like that.

He would like to sell access to mp3 files he has of him doing his motivational thing.

So, can anyone suggest the best shopping cart/credit card payment solution? Hosting and web design isn't a problem, I'll be handling that. I'm just looking for a solution which would take payment and then (perhaps) allow the user a limited time access to the mp3 file?

Any suggestions gratefully received.

All the best,
George

You may want to look at using WMA format instead of MP3 if you want them to expire etc. Look at implemnting DRM (Digital Rights Management) on WMA files.

Many thanks for that and I'll certainly look into DRM.

Just to clarify, however, once the user has access to the mp3 file (and they've paid), they're welcome to keep it and play it for ever. It's the access to the mp3 download which would need to expire or be limited in some way, if possible.

I guess it would be fine for one user to have access to one download without expiring, providing it doesn't involve a password or access code which could be shared with people who haven't paid.

Those are my thoughts, anyways, I'd be happy to rethink them all with the right cart solution.

All the best,
George

Are they able to download them - if so, that is fine. But I would consider limiting the number of downloads or the time they can download because you do not want your bandwidth eaten up if someone chose to give their user name / password to friends etc.

Limited time or downloads - absolutely! I've been told Cubecart is a suitable match for my requirements - anybody have any thoughts?
