Has anyone used Ip Downloads successfully to sell music files?

I was wondering if anyone has managed to integrate downloads to somehow sell music files? (along with Nexus)

There is going to be a need to provide information about copyright and licensing and also probably a way for someone to listen to a track before even making a purchase/donation etc

Any site that is a good example out there that you know of?

thanks

Blimey this was an old post wasnt it?  Talking now about 2016 4.1  ...  ha ha

anybody?   I have a good friend who is an artist who wrote his own music track and he is doing more soon.  He sells the music fie to make money for homeless persons ( 100% proceeds)

I would like that he can upload the track into downloads so we can help him to sell it.    Anyone done this?   I think it would just be mp3 not sure though.Maybe he needs to upload varying file formats Im not sure yet.

brilliant track btw  I wasnt into rap grime until I heard this  ( I help homless too so that tipped the scales for me I guess)

 

oh sorry just realized this in support 3.4     how can I change this hmmm    wooops

@Daniel F any chance you can move this post to 4.1 please    sorry bout this

I'll move it as I've just seen it. ^_^

You could use it to sell audio files, I cannot recall seeing a site using Downloads offering this but its quite possible as they are digital files, and (as far as the software is concerned) its no different to selling any other file type.

You could go a little further I guess and attach (into the description) a 'preview' file, perhaps 10-20 seconds of said track or suchlike, as screenshots would not really do an audio file justice as a 'preview' as such.

Just my thoughts.

yeah I thought that. And maybe sometimes they make a YouTube promo video with the track on so they could also post that in the description couldn't they

Yes, that would work. All they would have to do is post a YouTube link in the description. I have a member on my site (although not music files) posts YouTube links showing how what his animated wallpapers will look like.
