Can I put downloadable content on pages ie. mp3's and wav files . Can I also make them pay per download? Can I do this within SynthaSite or do I need something like www.payloadz.com ( they allow you to upload your content and then give you a code to put on your page. When a customer clicks on it it asks them to pay via pay pal.) I also want to provide some free stuff too. Also does my site have to have /synthasite after it or can I get my very own site. Thanks a bunch , I'm new to this and trying to figure out what site builder I'd like to use :)

You can put downloadable content onto your site using our File widget. Drag and drop this widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page. A file manager will open up that will allow you to browse your desktop for a file to upload. When you are done, click "ok" and a link to the file will automatically be created. We currently have a 5MB limit per file, but there is no limit to the number of files you can upload.

We do not currently have a way for you to charge per download within SynthaSite, but from your description payloadz.com sounds like a good solution. To add this to your site simply drag and drop an HTML widget onto your page and paste the code they give you over the default tags in the HTML editor dialogue box.

When you publish your site you can choose whether to use a free synthasite subdomain or publish to a domain you have purchased from a domain name registrar. Here is a link to a post that discusses the different publishing options and how to set them up:

I hope this helps!

Payloadz sucks...bad service, expensive..

Rather try out alternatives like: e-junkie.com or inzu.net or kiqlo.com.
