    Hi guys,

    Im looking to start a video ecommerce site.

    I already have a market for videos (skype/e-mail/youtube)

    Im looking to take these videos I currently sell manually, and automate the process.

    I will be using wordpress as my CMS. I have my domain.

    Im looking for a theme that would be suitable to use for selling videos.
    Im looking for an ecommerce solution (I've looked at easy digital download and woocommerce) that will allow:
    - Visitor to browse products (my products are videos)
    - Visitor can click on a product page, read the product description, view thumbnails from the video and watch a preview of the video. (The preview will be a separate 30 second clip of the full video)
    - Visitor can buy the video
    - Visitor can Pay (Via paypal ideally)
    - I receive payment
    - Upon payment being received either a link to download the video from, or receive the video file via email

    I'll also want the site to have a blog feed, my aweber sign up widget, social media widget etc etc

    To anyone who has experience with selling digital goods, especially videos, using a wordpress site, can you please point me in the right direction, or make some suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    WooCommerce is good and fairly simple for setting up an ecommerce store and will do everything you say, simply google woocommerce video theme. I don't know of anything that will automatically take screenshots or trim your video so there may be some work doing that
