What's the best app for pay-what-you-want digital music downloads?

1 0 0



    I'm a musician who is looking for a way to offer "pay what you want" to my digital download customers. Does anyone have any idea what app or apps would be the best choice for that? I am especially looking for a digital download app that offers the option to preview the audio before purchase.. As well as a "pay what you want" app that can work with it. Or better yet an app that offers both.


Please get back to me with any possible options

I don't think you will find one app with all those features but a combination may work. I'm sure there are digital download apps that allow previews and handle delivery etc but to do pay what you want, donation style payments you might need to use a third party service ie paypal, crypto, or some other means then embed a widget into your website.

There may be apps for that but I am not aware of any. For the previews you could also just upload previews to website then put buy buttons below etc.

One other option, may not be ideal or as professional as you'd like but you could use something like buymeacoffee and direct people there to purchase, it is designed for creators and donation style payments. I think it could be embedded as well actually. Good luck!
