I have a few questions that I've been trying to find the answer to for a few weeks to no avail. I am starting a business where I sell downloadable files I've created. They'll be in .zip format. Once I find a theme I like, and do any design work to the theme, etc, I'm good to go. My problems are as follows:
I can only upload 2megabyte files to wordpress, thought the products I'll be selling are about 12megabytes each. So can I get around this? (been looking and trying for days now, I'm not sure whether it's my hosting site that's blocking higher uploads because I've tried every tweak) Or can I host the file for sale on another site and have it accessible through a purchase on wordpress that way? Does that make sense? I know it's a complicated question.
See, my intention was to upload these 5, 12 megabyte files to my media library, and then link to them and set up the paypal, etc--using what I found on this page: http://www.heatherporter.com/get-more-customers/adding-paypal-to-wordpress-sell-ebook/ But this only works if you're using a small file.
So I guess my question is, are there any e-commerce plugins that allow you to host the file for sale on another site, or something like that, yet are still downloadable if someone were to buy them on my wordpress site?
Once I've picked a theme I like and I decide to buy it for $50 bucks or whatever they charge, can I then purchase an e-commerce plugin separately and have it work with the theme I bought?
I realize I've asked 4 tough questions. I appreciate your help so much. It's been a goal of mine for 2 years now to get this website up and running. I've spent the last 2 years designing what I'm going to be selling and now the only thing standing in the way of me starting my business is my ignorance at how to accomplish it. THere's so much information it's overwhelming.
