Ecommerce: paid products AND free downloads (1 post)

    Hey everyone. I want to start selling photos and videos from my website but I've run into a slight issue. I want a plugin that will allow me to do the following:
    -Paypal downloads
    -Free downloads (that doesnt require paypal checkout)
    -Secure download links (so you cant find the file via url)
    -Fits with theme of website

    If you goto this page at my site http://www.khayyamkhan.com/amy you will see that I have created a "download page". The top two boxes were created using a simple "box" shortcode and then handcode for the content within it.
    The lower box is generated via a plugin called WP Simple PayPal shopping cart. I used the "product display box" shortcode with and defined its parameters to create the thumbnail, text, description, and price.
    THE PROBLEM IS.... If I use "SimplePaypal Shopping cart" to create a FREE item, when I am sent to PayPal it presents an error "Please enter a value greater than zero". If it is a paid item then you could simply view the source code to see the file URL.

    Does anyone know of an ecommerce solution that will let me design the Product display, allow free items, and secure the download link (expire option is a plus). Thanks to anyone who can help me with this!
