How To Sell An eBook with PayPal
What You Need To Sell An eBook With PayPal
When it comes time to set up your eBook for sale with PayPal, there are a few things you will need.
1. An eBook =)
2. A PayPal account
3. A Sales Page – web page online where you will sell your eBook and put your PayPal "Buy Now" button.
4. A Download page (also called a “thank you page”) where customers can download your eBook after purchase.
5. Your eBook hosted online via your server (don’t let this freak you out – and yes, there is an option to this. Just stick with me here and I’ll walk you thru it all)
Since you already have your eBook, and I’m hoping you already have a PayPal account, let’s talk about the sales page for your eBook. You can sell your eBook from just about any type of web page. It does not HAVE to be an HTML page in that long sales-letter fashion that is so common these days. In fact, your sales letter could actually be a video or a blog post.
The most important thing is that you have somewhere online where you talk about your product and detail out the features and benefits of it. If your eBook solves a problem (as it should), be sure to make it clear what problem your eBook solves. There is a TON of info online about writing effective sales copy so I won’t go all into that.
The most important thing in relation to this tutorial about selling an eBook with PayPal is to have a web page where your PayPal Buy Now button can be found so people CAN buy your eBook. In this example, PayPal is the payment processor you are using.
