    Automated Delivery of Digital Products?

    Has anyone here had experience selling digital products? I'm considering venturing into this but I don't want to spend my day (nor can I really) emailing customers and fulfilling their orders. Is there some sort of shopping cart/delivery system that works well or that you've heard suggested?

    I've used payloadz (payloadz.com) in the past, until I created my own solution. Worked ok.

    Ebooks and other downloads?

    The most challenging part seems to be finding the platform in which to deliver.

    I dont know of any that stand out from the rest. I would suggest building your own, or looking open source.

    It also depends on whether you are selling one digital product or serveral within a catalog system.

    Digibuy seems to what you want, if you want an e-book.

    Share It should be good enough for software.

    I've got to say, I'm less than impressed with Digibuy. I mean no product or vendor site should have a page like this in their main navigation:

    http://www.digibuy.com/cgi-bin/join_author.html

    Also, the make it pretty difficult to find out their prices etc.

    Oh, no need to be sorry. I appreciate the input. I was just sharing my thoughts for anyone else.

    Yahoo's platform handles digital delivery pretty cleanly. The feature is built in to their Merchant Solutions platform. But it is only reliable if your downloads are under 16MB.

    I wouldn't recommend Yahoo, I think if you wanted to go that route there is something better. You may want to look into Volusion's cart system ...

    IMO, they are more likely to provide you the tools you need and have done a pretty decent job of keeping up with new designs and feature upgrades.

    I know it is usually condemned to post links to other forums, but this thread at Cre8 was answering the question you asked.
