Digital Retouching is Now Having a Store

Finally, i have started a store. I have been quite busy these past days setting up my first ever digital store online. And I am very happy to tell my Yola community how i am grateful that at last my site is now having a store. Pehaps I may not be good as others but still i am very happy to see my works online and growing more each day.

I am now a Designer of Digiscrapshop and i have just started for five products. I am hoping that someday selling digital products would be possible with Yola. Here is the link to my store, if you want to have a look:

And please don't be misunderstood about my post here because i am not promoting my site nor advertising. I just want to tell my co-members and the Yola people how grateful i am that my site is now standing and going with flow.

And I have some people i want to thank also. First, i want to thank Lee of Hexaminfo for my domain name..you are very kind to recognize and helping my site to have it's own domain name and setting up my website email. I want to thank Diogenes of CosmicSensorium for helping me so much in setting up my paypal account. And of course to Marije, who helps me so much in redirecting my site automatically from my old subdomain to my new domain name.

I am so blessed that i am surrounded with good people. Thanks for all the support.

Excellent news, Grace! I hope it goes really well.

Here's a possible solution for selling digital products:

We don't yet have a feature in Yola that allows you to sell digital products. This is something we would need to work on. However, I can suggest the following service for this purpose: payloadz.com. They have an ideal set-up that allows you to sell digital products and they are compatible with Paypal. For more information take a look at their support page: http://help.payloadz.com/help/default...

If you decide to use this service you can easily integrate it into your Yola site by:

1. Dragging and dropping an HTML widget onto your page.
2. Pasting the HTML embed code provided by payloadz.com.

Here is some more information on how PayLoadz delivers your digital goods to the customer (taken from their FAQ):
1. A customer browses a web site and finds a product or products that they would like to purchase.
2. They click the "Buy Now" links generated from the PayLoadz system to add an item to their shopping cart.
3. Once finished adding items, they click on "Check Out" to purchase their items.
4. They will be prompted for their PayPal or Google Checkout Username and Password. If they do not have an account, they will be given the opportunity to create one or to check out without creating an account using a credit card or bank account as their funding source.
5. After they have completed the payment process, the PayPal or Google Checkout server communicates with the PayLoadz server and provides the transaction details to our system. This communication takes place "behind the scenes" neither the customer, nor the merchant, sees this process.
6. Our system then sends your customer an email which contains custom "thank you" text that you specify during the product creation process, and a link to download their product. They are also redirected to the download page, immediately after payment at PayPal and Google Checkout, that provides them instant access to their purchase.
7. The link is an encoded link that, when clicked, processes at the PayLoadz web site instantaneously and prompts the customer with a download popup box asking to "Save" or "Open" the file.
8. The entire process happens in a matter of seconds. You are notified with two emails, one duplicate of the email sent to the customer from PayLoadz, and one for Notification of payment from PayPal or Google Checkout. We send the duplicate download email to you in case there is any problem with the email delivery to the customer. A person can purchase and download your goods in under a minute.

Please let me know if this alternative is not acceptable to you, and I will see what else I can suggest.

I will also pass your question on to our developers in the form of a feature request.

Good Luck!

Hi Grace,

I do know that there are Yola users who have added this service to their sites, but I don't have a URL to share with you, I'm sorry.
