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.

In an e-commerce web site you should have a payment gateway in it.
There must a product catalogue to show up your products. You should build your site on an e-commerce platform for better results like magento or zencart.

I've made a C# application with SharpDevelop, what I need to do to sell it ?
Can I sell it with a GPL licence and ask money for installation of program ?
Please let me know if there is some way to sell, legaly, my application.
Selling a product means that you need to create a contract between you and your customer(s) in this case can be a license.
What I've seen in many companies, they give for free their product and charge for customization services, training, and support (not bug reporting).
So it doesn't matter if your application was created in SharpDevelop, Visual Studio, PHP or whatever, if you want to make money since the moment they download your product, then create a trial version lets say for 14 days or limited access to the product, and after that, for a full license you charge whatever you think is fair for your work.
Just remember, that out there many other companies have the same product as you
I want to die like my grandfather- asleep, not like the passengers in his car, screaming!
Thanks you verry much for answer!
I have one more question: supose i'll give for free my product and charge for other services (like training), but it's legal to sell a product made with a free IDE (like SharpDevelop) in C# language? is there a tax for using C# or is free ?
If (i meet you in this life)
i'll drink with you a few beers;
Console.WriteLine("Thanks you verry much!");
