WebsiteMusicPlayer — Secure Transaction widget for Artists

December 27th, 2009

WebsiteMusicPlayer is an embeddable Flash music player widget that allows artists to securely sell their music. There are feature like encrypted download links that can be set to allowone download or a limited number of downloads. Also available are metrics that allow the artist to easily see how many items they have sold.
Transactions are done through PayPal in order to offer an easily recognizable standard that most users will feel comfortable with.

WebsiteMusicPlayer is not a free service. They make their money via monthly or yearly subscriptions. There is no “per purchase” fee.

How does it work?

At any time while listening to your music, the listener can click each checkbox each one of your songs to select each song that they want to buy.

Next they click the ‘Click Here To Order’ (or your own custom text) button that is prominently displayed on the bottom of your player and an order summary page will open in a new window.

On this new page they click the ‘Proceed To Checkout’ button and will be brought to a payment screen where they can either pay you by credit card or use their existing Paypal┬« funds. This money is instantly deposited into your Paypal┬« account.

After successful payment, the customer is forwarded to a download page that contains only the songs that they’ve paid for. These protected download links are also emailed to the customer.

The customer is only allowed to download each song a set number of times (determined by you in your settings), after which the download links expire and delete themselves to prevent them from being shared.

Widget customization options:

A lot of thought went into making the color of your player as easy as possible to customize. It’s very simple to make it so the player color matches any website you want it to appear on.

Each time you add the player to a different website it can have a unique color scheme.

You can set the color for the main parts of the player to any color you want. Easily select the color from a color picker interface or enter the html color value if you know it.

You can also edit the order button text at the bottom of the player in addition to the optional music licensing button that is provided by .
