RE: Pinterest launches “Today” tab

Hopefully "today" focuses on fresh content. My biggest gripe with Pinterest is clicking on a pin at the top of my feed only to find out that "10 SEO Tips" pin is from 2014.

Re: What do you use to send digital downloads after purchase?

Host the download anywhere. I use S3 mostly but you can use Wordpress (just upload the file to Media and grab the link).

Paypal has a place where you enter the link for the download.

Re: Why not just use Amazon Associates?

Also the cookie duration is low on amazon...I think 24 hours now. Meaning if you send someone to amazon and they don't buy today, but come back later and buy, you won't get credit for that sale.
