I have a couple of questions regarding selling a download on my site.
I have built my site in BV, but now I want to sell just one download.
It seems easy enough to add a paypal button, which I have done. I have created a success page for paypal to return to after payment and this contains my download link. I have set the url as a series of numbers and letters as opposed to something obvious like 'success'.
I have read a few comments about protecting the download, but also many seem to accept that the system is not infallable, and that people share files and links regardless of whether we permit them to or not. I too accept that this will happen from time to time, but I also agree that if there is a way to make it harder I should.
So, my question is...if I pay someone to put together a script for protecting my download, what will it actually do? I'm a bit of a newbie, to selling stuff anyway, so it would be great if someone could explain the 'script' and what it achieves.
Also, I am thinking about installing soholaunch, but considering I only have the one product and don't require much in the way of a shop, I can't help but wonder if I need to go to the trouble of learning how to use it. Perhaps with one download product I am better off just keeping it simple and using the paypal buttons which after purchase return to the download page, but there is no doubt that is open to abuse from people who have no scruples....though I like to think most do the right thing..... But, if using soholaunch means my download is secure then I would definately be more interested in using it.
