Ok, so I'm ready to start marketing and selling what I think is a killer niche
engineering app. The problem is I don't know how to actually set up the
mechanics of selling it on a site! Can anyone help?
Ive got a windows app ready for distribution and sales
its got an installer, a ftp site that it gets updates for itself, etc
now what is the easiest way to set up a store?
i.e. how do i get a "pay $25 with your credit card to download my app button" with
credit card payment processing/ftp download etc?
I had a bad experience with paypal where someone bought a key off me.
Then 30 minutes later they declared that their card had been used fraudulently.
Paypal refunded them and they got to keep the key and give my software away for free.
When I googled the postcode for the member I discovered that their registered address was in the middle of a docklands area in Inverness Scotland.
So my suggestion is that if you use paypal you verify the credentials of the buyer before sending a key - I would not want you to learn the hard way as I did...
Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential.(Winston Churchill)
Yes, you are correct. Unfortunately, this may happen with any card processor, not just PayPal. The card processors - and the credit card companies themselves - are all on the side of the buyer. If the buyer says it was fraudulent, then that's it - you have no chance of getting that decision reversed.
