Sell Digital Goods with PayLoadz

Deliver your digital goods automatically and securely without having to write your own application that relies on Instant Payment Notifications (IPN).

Using PayPal to sell goods from your web site allows your customers to make purchases without having to type all their financial information. Selling digital goods (documents, music, video, pictures, programs, etc.) affords the additional convenience of delivering your products over the Internet, rather than having to ship them, and comes as close to an ideal eCommerce scenario as you’re going to get.

To sell digital goods online effectively with PayPal, you’ll have to think about security and prompt fulfillment, both of which can be achieved with PayPal’s Instant Payment Notification (IPN) system [Hack #73] . The problem is that IPN requires not only an ability to write code, but full access to a dedicated web server on which to run that code. This is where a third-party digital delivery provider such as PayLoadz (http://www.payloadz.com) comes in.
