Hi,

If i understand correctly, you would like to sell digital content on your site ? This can easily be done without giving the user access to the direct download without paying. Available for help !

Thank you Guy's,
I have followed the link Sanja and found payloadz which I am already using!
But I find Their site to busy and difficult to use, Is Yola using the downloaded feature if not will it be available soon?

Thanks.

Hi again,

Here is an idea you can try :

If you are using Paypal ......

List your product on your site (include a description BUT don't make the link clickable)

Below this, include a Paypal 'Buy Now' button and do the following :

- When setting up your 'Buy Now' button for your product, make sure you set it up correctly AND in this case (your given request) - make sure you include the redirect URLs (meaning that after the user has paid, he will be taken to a link where he can download the product (Paypal will direct the user once the payment has been made). You just have to set it up.

Also, these links are not visible anywhere on your site however, can be made as individual pages on your yola site (hidden and not displayed in the navigation).

Do the same for all individual products (give them each their own page/download link/and paypal button)

Use the Yola "link" feature to upload/give paying users access to the download.

This is pretty simple and straightforward and will work on your Yola site without you really having to use any 3rd party !

If you need more information, get back at me.

Thank you for this helpful tip, Rynaldo! I'm sure some people will find it a useful alternative to Payloadz.
