Selling ebooks

I am interested in selling an ebook and imagine that Digital File Pro will be the extension to handle this.

How would the process work from an end-user point of view? Do they click a button, buy the item then get a link to the download or does it get sent via email? The new features video seems to focus more on the file uploads side of the extn so I would appreciate some pointers so I know whether it's going to do what I need.

I have eCart, SecurityAssist, DataAssist and Universal Email already. I also created the pdf in Acrobat Pro so I can password protect the file. This however, offers the same password for everyone so security is more limited...

Thanks in advance.

The download would be initiated by a page on your site. You could offer a link, redirect to the page directly, or send it in an email whichever you prefer or all of the above.

Thanks Ray

Are there any visual recipe-type examples of this in action?
Also, how would payment be handled?

PS Why don't WebAssist set cookies on the site to make login faster?

1) There is an old recipe using DFP v1, but none recently created
2) Payments are handled the same as any other physical good
3) No good reason.. just haven't added it the forum is still relatively new and we haven't updated it at all since the launch.

Thanks Ray

Final question - what benefits are there using DFP over something like payloadz for example?

No monthly fees... that is about it.
