WordPress Site: Sell Music & Clothes

Hello,

I am planning on creating a WordPress site with a focus on music. But it will also sell clothing. Just after recommendations as to which shopping cart you would recommend (supporting digital and physical purchases)? WP Store Cart Plugin has been recommended by a friend. Can this handle my needs? Is this sophisticated enough to calculate applicable postage and handling?

Or would you recommend an alternative approach?

And also, what's the best way to feature music on the site, so people can click to listen to a track, then if they are interested - click buy and go to purchase.

Cheers,
David

Almost any of the cart plugins can handle a store that sells both physical products and downloads and calculate tax and shipping.

I would steer you towards Woo Commerce at the moment as I think it has the best mix of features, add-ons, and support.

And also, what's the best way to feature music on the site, so people can click to listen to a track, then if they are interested - click buy and go to purchase.

Create preview versions of the tracks (15-30 seconds or so) and embed them in the product entry via SoundCloud or something like it.  The users can listen and add to cart from the same page.
