A Little Advice Please

    I am trying to setup a mp3 streaming page on my website so users can play a sample of my music and then buy the song, if desired. I can use a combination of paypal store and <audio> tags. But I need it to stop playing one song when another choosing to play another. And I need a shopping cart with a paypal backend that the standard paypal options does not have.

    Can somebody please suggest a FREE program for me? If not free, then relatively inexpensive. I do not want to do this in Wordpress or other CMS programs as I already have a functional site and don't want to replace it.

    Hi,
    so how does this work? I imagine a preview webpage where user can see details of a song while its sample / preview is being played. Details include Back, Play and Forward buttons to let user play or jump to previous / next song. A Buy button is there too; upon click it will stop playing and redirect user to Paypal webpage. When payment has been completed, user will be redirected back to preview webpage to see Buy button converted into a link to full song download. This link however will only last about 10 minutes...

    I was not thinking that far ahead. I was thinking that they purchase the song and I email it to them. Your way sound much better.

    @justinmidlet - they look brand new. Have you got any personal experience with them? Can you point the OP to sites selling music?

    I don't need to, but a hint for the future, if you're going to drop a recommendation it's worth pointing out why you think that particular system is a good match for the OPs requirements. You haven't done that yet.

    Could it be possible that you store your tasters on soundcloud and run this on WooCommerce with a paypal payment gateway?

    So, Setup Wordpress > Install WooCommerce > Creative Product "My Song" on this page add some Art Work for the song, something visual and then embed the SoundCloud Sample into the page?

    IMO this would probably be the easier way and cost you about £7.00 a month.

    selly.io is not going to work for me unless they allow me to both have sound samples and store the full son in their system. I was looking at that and other hosted stores and did not see a match. I addition, I would like to have the entire site on my domain name and hosted space, bo maybe I need to fight my way through the woo commerce learning curve and do it that way.

    Thank you all for your suggestions.

    WooCommerce is easy to use, you could find a developer to strip i back a bit because there is quite a lot of functions and features in there you wouldn't use. Good luck with the projet and if you need any support i'm sure this wonderful forum will be here to help.
