Sell online ebooks?

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

I'd like to sell online ebooks that are in .pdf or .rar filie format. How can I configure osCommerce in such a way that I can sell these downloads?

 

Thanks in advance,

Standard stuff with base oscommerce package. Highly recommend that you install the contribution - Download controller - search the contributions section.

 

Then.....

 

FTP pdf's to download folder (folder should be chmoded to 777 - read/writable). (Check pub folder for 777 as well)

Turn downloads on via admin

Create a download attribute via product admin.

Add attribute with pdf file name to the download product.

Make sure product has zero weight.

 

Complete the buy transaction and a link will be created after order is completed and also available in the customers order history page.

 

Have Fun

 

Tom
