Hello everyone. I just created my ebook and finished my website. I have almost everything set up, but I need to figure out how to have my customers download the ebook right after they order it.
I was thinking about using ClickBank and they said after the customer orders, they go to a thank you page that I will create. My question is how do I create a link or button on that thank you page for the customer to be able to download the book right there?
I'm sure it is simple HTML code, but I am still looking for the solution. I would appreciate any help.
Also, is there a better way for customers to be able to download my ebook?
Don't know if you already solved this issue or not, but there are a few options depending on what you had in mind and what your budget is. First, what shopping cart software are you using? Second, what payment gateway are you using now? and Third how much money did you want to spend?
I use Cube Cart. After you set it up on your site, you provide a root directory for the software to find the ebook uploaded on your server, and then when the customer pays through Paypal, the software sends a link to your cutomer. Or they can log in to their account on your website, and find their download link there.
I have written an ebook fully detailing setting up and running a shopping cart site. If you would like a free promotional copy in exchange for giving me your testimony email me and I will send you a copy.
p.s. i forgot to tell you... If you are thinking of going the Clickbank way it is $50 to setup and account. Kind of expensive if you only have one book. PayDotCom.com is free but works just like Clickbank.
I recommend using Clickbank... you get the entire checkout system automated, you get hundreds of people selling your product for you, and you get the feeling of relaxation as you don't have to worry about all of the nonsense.
I agree with moneylizard. I also suggest you use Clickbank. I've been using it for 2 years for distributing my products and it really works fine. Less hassle and easy to accommodate. Maybe setting up an account is quite expensive but just imagine the benefits of you can get from it. Try to look or visit this site to find out more:www.clickbankguide.com
Technically you have correctly explained how to put a download link on a ClickBank "Thank You" page. Unfortunately your suggestion fails to consider the security aspects of using such a method. If you put a download link on the "Thank You" web page, before long ha*c*kers will be downloading the author's eBook for free.
To distribute an eBook after a sale -- the customer should use a proven PDF/eBook security system (like HYPrLock).
The only time you should provide a download link to your digital product is if you are distributing it as trailware or demoware. In that case you want potential customers to easily download you product -- and hopefully pay for it later.
BTW: There are a number of different ClickBank security systems available. Are they needed? Just Google "ClickBank Thank You ha*ck" and see for yourself.
