Hello,

I was wondering if it would be possible to sell downloads. For example a video or file. They pay using PayPal and once payment has been automaticaly accepted they are taken to a file download link?

Thanks in advance!

According to the Roadmap (http://www.magentocommerce.com/roadmap) it could be ready with the release of Beta 3

That’s excellent! So not even some kind of mod will be needed? What is the expected release date?

Roy, I am curious, are there any plans for supporting the ability for users to signup for an account and upload their own (virtual) products to sell? Had someone who was interested in a site that allowed (for instance) music artists to upload their own MP3’s and Videos to a store for sale universally. Also, regarding our earlier discussion about contributions, were you planning implementing that with Magento as well? Just wondered.

Scott - currently there are no plans (its on the roadmap as of now). In regards to the contributions, yes. That is certainly an option.

That might be a good time to implement the Magento-EE bridge, haha.

Hello,

I want to install a shop for a friend to sell downloadable music.

I discovered Magento and despite my research (admin shop + this site) I do not know how to do it.

According the roadmap downloadable products are upcoming features, so does it mean that’s impossible now?

Thank you in advance for your answers!
