I want to sell MMO products on Woocommerce

I have a word press blog and I'm thinking of installing woocommerce so I can sell products in the make money online niche on my site. Especially ebooks for now. I'm just wondering if I can reproduce the same sales funnel, selling and check out experience that I see when buying from Warrior plus or JVzoo.

For example, a sales funnel where the buyer sees only one offer in a squeeze page format and nothing else. No navigation buttons, menus, headers, footers or anything else from the rest of the site. And then offer upsells and downsells that they can buy one at a time like in Warrior plus.

The reason for all this trouble is one major obstacle. Or make that two. I don't have the right access to Paypal. I'm from Uganda and Paypal does not offer receive services, only send. Stripe does not offer anything. I'd wrongly assumed for a very long time that I had access to all Paypal services since I was able to open an account with them. Realised much layer after I made my first commission on Warrior plus that I could not receive.

So I've been thinking which direction to take with the make money niche. I don't want to leave so I'm wondering of what to do with my website. How to make money with it. I also cannot open an account with Clickbank since they're not accepting members from my country.

All other Affiliate networks I've looked at use one or both of those payment services. Even then, someone like me would not stand a chance of being accepted. And the sales funnels like clickfunnels intergrate with payment gateways I can't get including those two.

I'd began ecommerce with Shopify, dropship on demand Tshirts. Yet to make my first sale. I thought of doing this with shopify but the only app for digital products that I know doesn't have good reviews, they say it works 70% of the time.

I was able to start a shopify store because a payment gateway company from Kenya, our neighbouring country started business in Uganda. They have integration with Shopify and Woocommerce.

Your thoughts please?

    It's really risky to sell branded products. You can get some traction but i definitely don't recommend doing it. You can't scale it due to copyright restrictions. You might even get sued. Good luck

      What in the world does this have to do with the OP's question? That aside, it is NOT risky selling branded products if you get them from the actual brand or one of their authorized distributors. It is definitely risky if you are buying them through AliExpress.

      As for the OP's actual question, I'm not sure if there is an answer for affiliate sales. If there is no way to receive money from affiliate networks, it's pretty hard to form a business around them. You'd have to sell actual products that are either dropshipped or that you stock. That, or you get private label/resale rights on digital products.

      WordPress/Woo can definitely be set up the way you want. You just have to figure out what it is you can sell and actually receive payment on.

      Finally, most large affiliate networks that I know of will pay you with good, old fashioned paper checks that they mail to you.

        Thanks Dave,

        The recent announcement from Warrior plus about the end of Paypal as we know it is a great development. Veem accepts accounts from my country. I've opened an account and should be able to get paid from Warrior plus. So now I'm trying to refresh my knowledge of list building and so on.


        I think I'll revisit this after getting the Warrior plus and business back on track. It will take a while to build a good reputation for the vendors

    Selling other people's ebooks and IM courses on your own site usually cannot be done. The authors usually do not allow it. They do, however, allow you to market their products as an affiliate. And the good news is...

    You can "sell" affiliate ebooks/courses/etc on your site with a Woocommerce store as an affiliate.

    Woocommerce allows what they call "external products". If you set up a product as an "external product", clicking the buy button on the product page does not add the product to a shipping cart, instead it is just an affiliate link that leads to the actual site selling the ebook/course.

    So basically, what you have is an eCommerce store but you don't use the shopping cart functionality because you aren't actually selling anything, you are just marketing everything and directing people to an affiliate link when they click the buy button. They buy from the actual vendor and you get a commission.

    People do this all the time with Amazon products. They build a woocommerce "store" and fill it with specific niche products from Amazon. Then, when the visitor click on the buy button, it leads to the Amazon product on Amazon.com with their affiliate link.

    It's actually quite simple to do with Woocommerce.
