E-books and Auction Sites

Diane Wilson I want to start selling my ebook on ebay and use pay pal.  Any ideas how to best download it  It is small enough to send through email but many are afraid of exe files.  It is a four step process , win the bid, pay for the item , reply to an email and email one more time to get your password.  Help Please!!

Maybe you can offer the customer a choice

Email EXE
Email ZIPped EXE
Send them a download link

Some ISPs block all EXEs as email attachments, so you need to take this into account too

Joe Zychik You'll lose a lot of sales if you opt for sending the e-book by e-mail. You need to let them download it off of your site.
There are other people who sell e-books on ebay. You might want to check out how they do it.
