I want to offer downloadable goods in one of my sites but I'm a newbie with downloadable products and need some tips/suggestions. I want to offer downloadable music, DVDs and ebooks. We're already selling physical products using wp-ecommerce (getshopped).
- What format should the downloadable goods be in? I figured the music files can be mp3s and ebooks PDFs but what about DVDs? I know nada about video. :/
- Are there specific hosting requirements we should consider? What might be a good host for this purpose? We're moving from the worst of the worst. Can you guess?
- What about security? Will my ecommerce plugin be enough to protect the files? We'd love it if we can prevent sharing or copying as well. I saw another plugin has a "PDF stamper" feature - sounds interesting. Any other ways to do something like that?
Any tips will be greatly appreciated!!
