There should be or would be a really cool e business to have a simple host site that allows one to upload the digital goods, manage them, see hits and sales and sell them from that host and they take a sales commission. I see Artist Direct but only Paypal and phone sms..many prefer Visa/Master Card, etc.. and I cannot find any example users, sites that use Artist Direct, to this to see this site put in action.Beatport is cool but not accepting new artists until next year.

that looks like what I am looking for..
Does it use Visa & MC etc..
Do the files stay on their server or mine?

I'm using www.netfirms.com They have everything you might want. You can set up your own stores(5) with all sorts of payment modules. Your own forums, blogs, etc., etc. Reasonably priced.

I checked the "Netfirms" but this seems just like a web site server..
Where is the place to do sales online with them..
What is your site so I can see how an example works?
Thanks

interesting music..
I like it
Now for the mp3 sales..Are those on the NetFirms server?
Do you like upload them via the website or is it some fancy coding?
I do not see anything about payment systems other than a service called
"authorize .net" but I think this is only to U.S. based banks and customers.
getting closer
