[resolved] [Plugin: Wp-e-commerce] Multiple file downloads for music store (4 posts)

    I want to integrate WP e-commerce into a record label website.
    What is the best way to offer mp3 downloads of single tracks and full albums?

    I haven't had any luck searching for a solution online. I may be missing something obvious.

    My best guess would be to upload a zip file with all the tracks for an album download. Does anyone have a better solution?

    You will want to set variations up.

    A separate variation for each track and then another variation for the entire album.

    Then each variation can be associated with a downloadable file....so for the "tracks" variations, you'll just attach the track. For the "album" variation, you'll attach the entire album.

    Each variation can have a different price as well...

    Thanks for that option. With a bit of creative thinking about categories and products I might get the store to work.

    I'll search for answers but do you know how to display the variations as a list?

    I don't think this is possible as you are intending, or at least what I would like to be able to do.

    1 product (digital album)
    2 variations (mp3 or flac)
    2+ files for each variation (*1.mp3, *2.mp3... or *1.flac, *2.flac...)

    As a workaround I'm trying using zips of albums. Downfall is that although individual songs aren't greater than my file limit, the zip will be.
