    I don't know if this will be much help because I am just learning too, but here is what I have done so far. I set up my paypal to accept payments. I generated a paypal button and put into my sales page. I signed up with ejunkie.com to handle the automatic download after delivery. I have not set up everything in ejunkie yet but they have good tutorials. I set up an account with aweber.com as my autoresponder so I am not sure what part they play in the whole thing because since the payment is through paypal I don't think they are used. I'll help any way I can

      With paypal you can set the url where your customer can be redirected after the purchase.

      Choose an hard to guess adress such as www.yoursitename.ext/averylongurl1120263.html


      If you are just starting affiliate marketing is the best.

        Don't rely on "hard to guess." Your download page URL will soon be shared all over the web.

        E-junkie is certainly a good option, and there are others.

        Please, before you make any decisions read these threads carefully:
        Also, you can try searching the forum. I bet that "digital product delivery" and "download page protection" get discussed here about once a week. Trouble is, there's a lot of misinformation going around. Read the two threads I linked to, and be sure to read the first one all the way to the bottom, including my two posts there.

        Hope this helps.

          yup! "hard to guess" really work if you keep changing it often I though he might want to use that only untill he made the first sales so that he could afford e-junkie or dlguard.

            Sorry, but "hard to guess" isn't a good idea even if you keep changing it. It protects the download page a little bit, but it doesn't protect the download links at all. I know a lot of people sell and deliver things this way, but that doesn't make it right and it doesn't make it smart. It just isn't.

            E-junkie costs $5 a month for up to 10 products, and it protects all your download links. Anyone can afford that.

      Don't even think about it.

      It's an old product, left over from years ago when PayPal couldn't encrypt its information for you. Now PayPal does this for you properly, for free, whenever you create a Buy button using your PayPal account. PayPal hosted buttons are entirely secure, meaning that they can't be tampered with. The price can't be changed and the location of your download page is not exposed to prying eyes.

      In contrast, the code created by Paylock Generator is completely non secure. Any 10 year old hacker knows how to de-obfuscate the JavaScript that Paylock Generator writes. It reveals the location of your download page in about two seconds flat. In fact, you don't even need a hacker. There's a Firefox plugin that lets you discover the download page location for any PayPal button created using Paylock Generator.

      Don't!

    Hi if you are still looking for the info. I may be able to help. I have built over 50 websites and blogs in the last year. After paying a mentor $1900.00 to teach me how to buid a website. They did keep their word the site was a "work of art". The only thing wrong was there was no way to monetize it. then I found a little known site, as you will find in the link below, that changed my life. I now have people paying me to advertise on my website.
