osCommerce as a digital music store

Hi folks, i'm new to oscom, i'm looking for an opensource alternative to my own hand coded project for an online music store. Most features I want to add I'm pretty sure can be found pretty easily on the contributions site. Since my site is (for now) strictly a digital music store, obviously I only sell items via downloads, no shipping of physical goods. I have two hurdles to get over before I'm on my way, like I said, I'm new to oscom and therefore this forum, I haven't found anything helpful yet, but if this is a redundant question, please point me in the right direction.

 

#1 I want to have unlimited downloads, is there a way to disable the maximum number of downloads?

 

#2 I want the users to be able to purchase a full album at a discounted price, example: an album has 12 songs, each song sells for $1 each, or you can buy the full album for $10. I *could* make a seperate product that was a zipped file with the whole album, but then its taking up twice the server space.

 

If theres any modules already available that solve my problems, please point me in the right direction, or if some developers are feeling really ambitious... :rolleyes:

 

Thanks

-TJ

Your idea about the project is very good. I am not very sure about the last functionality availability but with PHP you can build zip file from the selected files on the fly. This way it will not take up extra space on the server but just small one needed for the script.

 

With regards,
