Sell ringtones for download to my website

Hi everyone,

I currently have a website for my band (check out our tunes if you're interested, and I want to allow people to download samples of our songs as ringtones for their mobile phones. I want to charge a small fee for this maybe $1 or $2 also.

Whenever I search on google I can only find sites that sell ringtones, nothing on how to provide ringtones as a web admin.

I would like to run all of this on my server if possible, without needing to pay a service to provide them for me. Please point me in the right direction for scripts (PHP preferable) or software that will allow me to do this.

Well, a CMS like Joomla has modules available that can do that sort of stuff for you.

Joomla seems to only have payment gateways (I already use Paypal, click to buy buttons), nothing for ringtones. Did I miss it?

You're right, there is nothing specificly for ringtones, but I figured, you could use another online shop module to sell them. Instead of (for instance) houses, you enter ringtones as your product :)
