Is WordPress’s Media Uploader The Only Way To Upload MP3 to WPeStore?
I’m trying to add an mp3 to WPeStore and it says to use WP media uploader.
Problem is that it only allows up to 10MB.
My file is 89.9MB
How can I properly upload this file to sell from WPeStore?

There is a file uploader in WP eStore plugin. Use the “Upload File” button next to the “Digital File URL” field when creating a product.
or Use something like FireFTP (a Firefox addon) or Filezilla.
Tutorial on how to use FileZilla:

Is it ok to upload the hosted mp3 to WPeStore without being a zip file? (www.myfamilyexercise…mp3) Will it still deliver properly and with a secure link?
Or is it best to find a way to get the mp3 into a zip file first?

MP3 files are already compressed. Trying to zip them does not shrink their size significantly. WP eStore will take care of the link security.October 6, 2011 at 8:14 am #26690shaymehanMember
this makes no sense i can not upload my MP3’s cause of size so i manually uploaded through filezilla to server and they still arent showing up. HOW am i suppossed to get my product uploaded?October 6, 2011 at 10:48 am #26691
The files “…still arent showing up.” What specifically do you mean? If you used FileZilla to upload the files, you should be able to confirm the success of the upload. Are you uploading to the same directory that you are later looking in?October 6, 2011 at 11:20 pm #26692adminKeymaster
The FTP client will have the directory path (remote site) to where you are uploading the files. For example it may look like the following:
You need to replace everything before the “wp-content” with your domain name which gives you URL to that directory:
Now just add the name of the file to the above and you have the full URL. For example, if my uploaded image name is “image1.jpg” then it should look like the following:
http://www.example.com/wp-content/uploads/image1.jpgJuly 2, 2012 at 5:30 pm #26693montecristoMember
hello, when uploading a digital product using FTP,
is it possible to select it using a GUI interface
in the “Digital Product URL” field.

No, because any kind of file selector requires read access to each level of a transversed path. If a product is hosted off-site (Amazon S3) or is a WP permalink, complications will occur. Its best if you use the file uploader inside the plugin or WordPress’s media uploader.
