Selling a Music Album - how to set up the album for download

Recommended Posts

Hey yall!  I have a client thats a musician and wants to sell his album.  He wants to sell it as an entire album and not just individual tracks.  Does anyone know how I would do that?  Would it literally be as easy as a zip file?  Has anyone had any experience in working with a musician?  Thanks and happy saturday 🙂

Yes, you can place the tracks and artwork into a zip file and then sell this as a Digital Product.

Paul, this doesn't help many people. Most people don't know how to work with Zip files, especially when they're on Windows. We as music artists need the ability to upload more than one file to a digital download. It's the only thing that makes sense for the average person. I've been in tech for over 30 years, and have been a recording artist for 10 of those years. This doesn't seem like a hard computer question.

Digital download products are currently limited to a single file on Squarespace, so uploading multiple files is not possible. Using a zip file may not be perfect, but it’s one of the only workarounds available.

Squarespace doesn’t use this forum to track limitations or feature requests so, if you'd like to raise this as a feature request, you are encouraged to contact Squarespace directly by raising a ticket through Squarespace Customer Care
