I would like to offer MP3 digital downloads for sale via my Yola site.

I am record label owner with a Yola-created website ( http://www.rhoqsolident.com ). I currently have a page set-up for an on-line store using the provided PayPal tools, but I would really like to be able to offer potential customers with something a bit more instantaneous. Are there any Yola widgets avaiilable (or in the works) that would allow someone to make a purchase from a Yola site and receive a download ticket (download instructions) via email as soon as they have completed their transaction and submitted payment.

Unfortunately, I have yet to actually make any sales through our website (but have had very minor success via iTunes and Amazon). The system I currently have in place is this: Customer completes transaction via PayPal. I receive an from PayPal alerting me of the sale. I send the customer an email with detailed email instructions containing the login/password information to access the hidden page on my site to download the MP3(s). I would love to be able to automate this somehow, since a customer shouldn't have to wait for me to reply with download instructions. What if I am away and can't send them instructions in a timely manner? Any ideas?

Thanks.

and BTW - Yola rocks!

Hey Rhoq
Yola does not provide a widget for this feature.
Try looking at this Yola tutorial.
I think this may be what you are looking for.
Adding an integrated pay-and-download feature

Hope this helps.

John Mc, thank you very much. It looks like PayLoadz may be the way to go.
