How The Store Works

We are utilizing Easy Digital Downloads plugin for the store section. You can view all products from WP Admin -> Downloads -> All Download.

Now remember that all preloaded products is just an EXAMPLE only.

You will need to either EDIT them or delete them.

Now let’s learn how to add new products by looking at one of the preloaded products: Rock #18.

Click Edit and you will see Rock #18 title and content; and various product setting such as prices, download files, etc.

On content section, fill it using this pattern:

On the Download File field, you simply enter the File Name and File URL (customer who purchase that item will see the File Name and download the File URL)

On the Excerpt field, enter only the File Preview URL.

This means, for one item/music track you will need to generate two track version using MusicMan software:

1.) the short version (for the File Preview URL)
2.) the long full version (for the File Download URL)

This is possible because MusicMan allows you to generate custom duration for music track that you create. I recommend 30 seconds long for the Preview file and for the Full version file it is up to you (maybe 2-3 minutes long)

And I recommend using Amazon S3 to host all your music file, don’t upload it to your WP media storage because it will drain your hosting bandwith and server resource.

So the workflow is like this:

1.) For one music, generate two version using MusicMan (short version & long version)
2.) Download the files from MusicMan and upload it to Amazon S3, Dropbox, etc
3.) Use the Short Version file URL on the content and Excerpt field
4.) Use the Long Version file URL on the Download field.

As MusicHive is utilizing Easy Digital Downloads (EDD) plugin for the store section, it is best to browse around EDD knowledgebase and Docs to learn more about its function.

So here is the Docs link:

If this is the first time you build a store like this, it might pressure you quite much!

But it’s good for you, because you learn something new and forces you to level up.

REMEMBER: this is just one WP store, many successful marketers out there have dozens of WP store like this. It’s worth the hardwork because you act as the site owner not affiliate. So any sales made, goes right to you straight away. 🙂

Now that you have MusicMan software and the MusicHive store, go create as many as music tracks and sell them as your own!
