Paypal double-talk

I have looked in topics and in the paypal FAQ,(which don't answer anything!). What I want to do, like with Alertpay, is a simple list of product payment forms that will then link to the files I have in my site for download. I just do not see how to do this with paypal, and the store idea you have here is redundant to the page from where the buyer will find the products. How is this done with paypal? Seems they make everything so hard!

Hi Kent,

Just so I am understanding what you are wanting to do. Do you want to sell a digital product that someone will need to download onto their computer once they pay for it?

Exactly! Is this what Payloadz is for? But it requires money! This is why i asked before for more processors than paypay rip-you-off!
Go to this page of my old site- http://www.geocities.com/ac_mwm_motor... and you will see that it forwards to a payment page. Once the payment is made, a link to the file opens for the customer to download. Simple!

Hi Kent,
Yes, that is what Payloadz is for. Here is a post where Ruth has explained how to implement it in case you haven't seen it: Payloadz.

I hope this will work for you!

Sometimes we can't see the light at the end of the tunnel!Or as some say- can't see the forest for the trees! If this has not been known before, I can add as an how-to here for ya!

I should clearify here, I got the link as I want, but double-talk will not let me test it!
