    Hi guys,

    Im using wordpress, and easy digital downloads to create a video sales sites. The video's i am selling will range from 500 mb - 1 gig.

    I want the process to be

    Visitor browses site
    Adds a video to their basket
    Checkout
    Payment is made
    Automated e-mail is sent containing a link to download the file

    How should i go about, and where should i be uploading my files, that would allow me to send the customer a link to download the file?

    Thanks

    I mean what upload service will do the job?

    I'll be using easy digital download for the e-commerce & automation email. I need a place to upload the videos so i can send a link however. My hosting service doesn't offer enough space.

    Hi,

    Use wp ecommerce plugins for checkout and payment processing.Automated email sending with link achieved by a little bit php customization.

    If this were guaranteed to bank hard, you could use a service like dropbox or rackspace, just pay for the pro/premium account. That's where you'll need to be earning enough to make it worthwhile.
    Perhaps someone with more experience in this arena will shed some light.

    OP: you should try membership plugin such as aMember, it has a lot of functions such as if you want to sale your service on recurring monthly basis then there is a recurring setup feature to control this. You can browse all the features on the official site.

    If you have to use EDD then you can use the "Add from server" plugin to bypass the MB limit for hosting files as downloads. But I would suggest using something else like maybe Woocommerce (it's free).

    Edit: also check out e-junkie I believe they host the files themselves and send out the emails for you.

    Well car boots are a good place to sell things but people will normally only buy this item for nostalgia or rarity value..!
