I want to sell music downloads while getting the customers data (email, zip code) also I would like to accept pay pal and credit cards. What is the easiest way to do this. Will a simple store work or do I need a storefront. Also will I need a separate merchant account. Thank you
For downloadable products you must use Storefront. Simplestore will not do the job. Storefront can accept Paypal and a large number of other merchant accounts. You would need to select on from the supported options. Stripe is a very popular one, but other common ones are also supported.
