How to use this product?
It’s really simple. You need to do the following steps:
1. You install the plugin.
2. Then you will in your PayPal email to receive the payments under Settings > Music Seller.
3. From there with each post or page you create you have a box where you can upload your music files (and a separate file used for preview for each of the music files for sale) and embed the cart, player and order form simply using the [music_seller] short tag.
That’s it, once someone opens the page/post you added the songs, they will be able to add them to a cart and submit the order directly to PayPal and pay you. After the payment is complete the users are sent to a pre-made but customizeable thank you apge where they download their purchases. Optionally if enabled, the songs and the download links can be delivered to buyer’s email.

Perfect contact and cooperation
Fantastic extension easy to use and configure. Deian’s support is very fast, I had a few questions answered by return. Can’t get better service than that!
I purchased Quicksell to use it with sales of a digital version of my magazine and it turned out to be just tailored to fit my needs!
I am not a joomla pro, but setting it up was really, really easy. It really is intuitive and quick.
The biggest pros are:
– Unique link for every order and limited downloads to protect against piracy
– Smooth Paypal integration and quick checkout with no extra steps required
– Versatility in how the file is delivered (website download, link, attachment)
– Customisable buttons
– Remarkable level of support from Deian, he really went an extra mile to meet my needs.
I didn’t really come across any cons so far. In the future, I’d love to see an option for a spread view in the pdf encryption (not just portrait or landscape).
BIG thank you for this excellent plugin !!!!
Selling digital goods online is prone to piracy but this extension helps combat that in 2 ways. Firstly, every download URL is unique and limiting the amount of downloads ensures that the download link is useless if passed on.
Secondly, and unique to this extension, you have the choice to encrypt the PDF with the buyers email.
The best thing about this extension though, despite it working flawlessly and being very easy to use, is the support. Deian has been incredible. He’s replied to all my emails in less than a few hours and has answered them all and answering all my questions.
Great extension, Incredible support. The best extension to manage digital downloads!!
I am always wary of multiple reviews full of praise with 5star ratings. Yet I found myself compelled to register here in order to make a similar review. The extension just works! A question I asked, because I failed to find a plugin ( my own mistake) was answered promptly and with patience. If you need to sell subscriptions, with little fuss, this is the one I think is the best, especially for newbies to ecommerce.
