Need automatically send PDFs after payment
« on: April 24, 2012, 12:35:14 AM »
Thanks to you guys, I've developed blueprints and instructions for a child's desk.  Now I need to know how to automate the process to deliver PDF documents as soon as the customer makes payment.  How is this automation accomplished?

Thank you.

Depends.

We use aMember software for TSP.  It handles the paypal subscription and once someone pays they are taken to the supporting members area where they can download stuff. It protects that entire directory so any PDFs put in those directories can't be downloaded directly and people have to be logged in.

Other shopping cart software can also do it.  I know 1shopping cart was software I have used in the past. You can setup a ebook as a product and it will send them a secure download link after they purchase.

So really the question is, how are you going to take orders? :) The software you use to take orders may handle the PDF download/delivery for you.  If you're just going to use clickbank or paypal without software then you have to figure out how to make it so only people who purchased your book can download it. You have to try and figure out a way to prevent someone from posting the link directly to the download on a forum (like this one.)

I've set up a Buy Now option on the site using PayPal.  I'm concerned that many folks do not realize that you can just use a credit card without a PayPal account.  And of course, I'd like to email an attachment after payment, rather than redirecting buyers to a static landing page for their downloads.

Right so you have no protection. Anyone who downloads your book can just post the link to download it to their friends.

I do not recommend what you're doing at ALL :)

You need to spend a few dollars and get some real shopping cart software or something that can protect you.

If you haven't already, go D/L Pat Flynn's book on e-book development and sales.  You sign up for his e-mail list and get the book free.  He doesn't spam you, and you can unsub if you want anyway.

His book on e-books is great and he details exactly how he sets up sales and delivery of PDFs.

I am now using e-junkie.  It seems to work well.  My only complaint so far is that it takes the buyer to paypal to process a credit card.  I think that there will be some people who abandon the purchase because they think that they need a paypal account.  I know that there's some fine print that says, "If  you do not have a paypal account, click here", but some folks probably will not read that.  I have had some concern about this for awhile.  As it turns out, Pat Flynn has this concern also.

How can I set up a button dedicated for PayPal, and a separate button dedicated for the credit card option?
