Hello Lisa,

This is an easy process. You can use PayPal for digital products to host and pay for your products.

Because Yola don't have security certificates you would not consider direct payment to your website. This would be dangerous and you probably wouldn't be allowed to anyhow.

Paypal include the security for you and the process is very easy. There is a commission paid by deduction from the payment gateways and the prices are documented on their websites.

Downloadable products are a little different to physical products because after purchase the buyer then has access to your product to download. The best practice to employ is a time limited access so that other users can't use the same download key and rip you off.

If you have a large number of these digital products then I would suggest Ecwid to build your catalogue and manage the access to products after you customers make payment. This system makes building a larger catalogue very easy and it's just a matter of adding some code to your Yola site plus building the catalogue on the ecwid system.

Goodluck Lisa. Please feel welcome to leave follow on questions here if you wish.
