The question you're really asking is: "Should I use the off-the-shelf WordPress CMS to build my business website to sell my digital files, or should I learn to code just so I can build the website from scratch with the Angular TypeScript framework?"

That's a question you ought to answer yourself... but, to me, this is a straightforward decision: if the value you bring to your customers is in the files they purchase and download, and the value is not to be found in the website itself... then why bother learning to program just to be able to sell your files? Would you make your own saw and hammer to make a table?

If you decide to go the WordPress route, please understand that Elementor/Pro is just a fancy eye candy: the visual design of your site. Elementor is just a page builder plugin for WordPress, and, at best, it will help you build beautiful landing/sales pages. But Elementor/Pro does nothing to protect your files or allow people to make purchases from the site and securely download their purchased files.

For this, you'll need a different tool or set of tools from the WordPress ecosystem. Perhaps the easiest all-in-one solution would be the Easy Digital Downloads plugin. If you have more advanced shopping cart needs, you may want to use the Woocommerce plugin, along with appropriate Woocommerce extension(s).

I hope that helps. If you have any follow-up questions relating to WordPress, feel free to ask: I'll do my best to answer as time allows.

Good luck with your project!

If you just want to mount your e-commerce website to start selling and maintain it along, you'd be better using WordPress and Elementor. And if time's not affordable, then contract someone to build the pages for you. (Ask them to make you easy to publish things.) Also, for me, Gutenberg Editor would be enough. These days, websites are preferably to be very simple like a mobile app. There's also another plugin named WooCommerce, I recommend you to check it out before deciding. But whatever you like is good.

If you want to code it yourself, you can, but heck you will need months before that shit could be browsable. However, this was what I stupidly did decide some years ago when I was a game artist, and I don't regret it. Though, Angular is just for UI, and I wouldn't decide going for it. My choices would be React for UI (much more easy to learn), ExpressJS for server-side functionality (if you ever need) or perhaps AWS lambda functions, and Stripe's API for implementing the payment gateways.

@George Appiah and @alfosua have already answered your question. The simple answer is to use WordPress or any COTS (Commercial Off-the-shelf Software). As a Software Engineer who earns a living writing code, I want to triple emphasize that you do not learn Angular or learn to code so you can sell digital downloads.

I have nothing against Angular, but an illustration of what you are asking is I want to deliver files to my client, should I use UPS or build out my own delivery network. Save yourself a few frustrating years and use a ready-made solution.

Maybe, the question you should be asking Google and not this forum could be "digital download management service", you might not even need a website, WordPress, or Elementor. BTW, Goodluck on having something to sell.

One more vote for wordpress + Elementor from me.
Angular is for something else entirely.

PS. Also make sure to include the NitroPack plugin.
IMO easiest and fastest optimization for any wordpress site.
If you decide to use it, I can send you a discount link for it.

Elementor is a resource hug. It's very slow to load unless you do a ton of speed optimizations. I used to use Elementor but switched to Oxygen Builder for my latest website. It's such a relief. I highly suggest you have a look at Oxygen.

If you're used to Elementor it takes some more time to learn but it's still very easy to use in my opinion.

This is exactly why I suggested ot use it in combination with NitroPack

Thanks for your reply. I understand the UPS or to build out my own delivery network system. I agree with it. I just want to make sure my business comes under CENTs command. Specifically the "C". So if later I'm making a good income, I don't want that anything to Crashdown my running business or affect me. I want to make sure that I can control my own system at any time any day. I don't know much about the COTS or anything related to WooCommerce.
I Will do research on both platforms.

Thanks a lot for your reply.
