What are the best options for selling multi-platform music software online? (PC/OSX/Linux)

Also what are the best options for software licence management that's easy to add into your own software? Optimally the software online store would make this licensing process easy to integrate into the whole selling/licensing process of the software.

Also customer database would be nice to have in the same system if possible. Are there any such things available or are all of these different components in the process which need to be tied together by the developer?

Any pointers?

According to the amount of answers I got on this thread, I came to the conclusion:

It seems that either you gave the best possible option there is OR there are very few people on this forum who actually sell any of their stuff :-)

I'm not a developer, but I've bought my fair share of software.

I can tell you a lot of indie devs use Gumroad - https://gumroad.com

Shopify is also very popular - https://www.shopify.com

EDIT: Forgot one... SendOwl is also worth a look - https://www.sendowl.com
