I received several good ideas from the community when I first posted my inquiry about how to download /digital audio files to customers after the customer had paid for them, but I'm such a novice at using/installing/changing/coding, I was hesitant to try any of the suggested remedies, fearing I'd somehow ruin or lose my entire Homestead website!  (THANK you, though, to those of you in the community who gave me those good ideas, especially Drew N, Community Manager, who included screen grabs to show me what to do!)  Anyway, I contacted PayPal, because I use their "add to cart" buttons on my site.  They didn't have a digital-download button that fit my needs, but they suggested a few 3rd-party check-out systems, and I settled on e-junkie.  For a minimal monthly fee, I can offer several digital files for customers to download after they've paid for them!  I was nervous about using the copy/pasting of the code to actually get the buttons on my site, but they were done the same way as in my Homestead site!  Yahoo!  Now, all I have to do is wait for a buying customer!

One of the things I enjoy about building websites is solving problems as you have done. It needs a bit of investigative work, a bit of trial and error until you get it right. Although we need to be careful when adding HTML code from an unknown source as they can contain all sorts of nasty surprises. Using a reputable source, checking the source via a Google search to see if anyone has had any problems with the Company will go a long way to keeping your website clean and your customers safe. I am always dubious of "Free" HTML and will always check with a free standing HTML checker to see what it will do on my page. http://htmledit.squarefree.com/ or http://codebeautify.org/htmlviewer/  are good sites to check HTML codes. You did a great job, have learned a new skill ( thank you for sharing) and have the satisfaction that you got the job done. I wish you every success.
