Software to sell digital product services

    I recently had an idea to sell graphic work related to gaming; however, all of the eCommerce solutions I found sell predetermined products. Here is my Idea.

    Let's say a customer wants to buy a forum signature.
    They go to my site, choose the forum signature option, purchase it for a certain price, and they are required to sign up so they have access to a member's area. At this member's area, they can only see the signatures they have purchased. When I'm done with their signature, I can give it to them specifically, and it will show up in their member area.

    I suppose another solution would be to have the purchasing software and the member software separate, and I could just handle it manually. If that's the case, I also need to find software that allows per-member downloads.

    I'm open to solutions that are their own software, or plugins for other software such as WordPress.

    Given this is much like a business or services website I would probably just go with wordpress with woo commerce bolted on to it. Some thoughts on digital downloads with the plugin. http://docs.woothemes.com/document/digitaldownloadable-product-handling/

    I would have to think about showing things in the user account like samples etc. but wordpress will be much easier to deal with in this case rather than say, Magento.

    hope that helps,

    Thanks, I'll definitely look into that. I'll try to figure out a way to have per-user products. Seems like it should be possible.

    WHMCS can do the same, you set up the digital items attached to a purchase and then they access those files via their member area. Not really what it was designed for but it would work.
