Michael Goldbergautomating download info, using Adobe Muse and Paypal

Hello,
I'm currently building a website that sells digital products.
All of the shopping cart solutions seem to be fairly pricey, and I don't think I need that. Right now I'm set up with just a paypal button to accept payments through paypal. Starting small!

My question is - How can I set up an automated process so that when someone buys a product, I can send them to a download page automatically?
Any ideas?

Thanks,
Mike

Muse is not built (at this time, anyway) to be a shopping cart system. A quick Google search of "muse shopping cart plugin" returned the well-known Ecwid plugin, but Ecwid doesn't offer digital downloads on its free plan...

So, what to do?

Maybe use something other than Muse? For a simple site, OpenCart is the first that comes to mind. There is also Magento, but it has heftier requirements than OpenCart.

Hope this helps.

I am a simple creative professional that can get my Adobe suite and a few other creative tools to do what I want. Barely. :)

I've used WooCommerce to build a shopping cart system. It's free to start if you keep it bare bones, but as you grow and want to add features, you will have to add plug-ins that add up.

It's not a bad way to start for a simple shopping cart system, but the WordPress platform can be pretty slow at times. Have you checked out Shopify?
