I've been using Market Theme for about 2 years now and I do like the theme a lot, but I've always been frustrated that I couldn't use the shopping cart because it doesn't support multiple digital products. So what i did for 2 years was use the PP shopping cart, which I hated.

Recently I began exploring my options and found a shopping cart plugin which does support digital downloads, so I purchased it and integrated it with Market Theme. It now accomplishes everything that I'd hoped for in the beginning. I have also hosted my own files and last year started using Amazon AWS. I use DLGuard for download management, so E-Junkie was always out of the question for me.

Anyway, it was a lot of work to achieve this, but apart from a little interior design that I need to do, I'm happy with it I've always been kind of jealous of MT's lightbox cart and checkout, but you can't have everything.

Thanks for sharing.

Within the next couple of months, we're going to be resolving the whole digital download products shortcoming that Market Theme has had.

When completed, there will be no more need for a 3rd party provider, plus store owners will also have the ability to intermix digital download products with physical products.

I'm thinking that'll be about 3 months, but it's hard to say. My forecasting time quotes doesn't have the best track record.
