I love WordPress. It's too easy to use, too effective at what it does, and it's just the right price for my pocketbook. WordPress is "software for the rest of us" - cheap (it's actually FREE, but we donate, right?), easy to use, and it's good.
But if you want to use WordPress as a platform for selling digital products, you need to be able to support PayPal and ClickBank and protect your digital property from being accessed by folks who've chosen not to pay first.
You also needed something that made it easy to market products as an affiliate (to sell other people's products that compliment yours) and effortlessly cloak my affiliate links.
And say, if you've got SEVERAL products that you are going to sell on ClickBank, with the standard ClickBank procedure, you'll be looking at getting several clickbank merchant acccounts (or need to buy other softwares that will let you sell multiple products on 1 clickbank account). That is going to cost you hundreds.
So, what is your option?
Yes, there wasn't really anything available that did all these things and worked with WordPress... Until the birth of
Digital Product Demon is a simple, easy to use plugin that does exactly what most WordPress site owners want when selling digital products from their WordPress website.
Digital Product Demon coupled with WordPress will let you:
Easily sell digital products with just a PayPal account - PayPal is easy to use, but it doesn't provide a way to hide your ThankYou page or protect your download links. Digital Product Demon makes it easy to do both. It'll hide your Thank You page so that only valid customers can access it and it will expire your download page and encrypt your download URLs so that your links can't be shared or posted on "pirating" forums.
Support multiple products in a single ClickBank Account - Digital Product Demon lets you use separate sales, thank you, and download pages for each product you define. That means that you can place multiple products in 1 ClickBank account but still display individually crafted sales pages for each product.
Automatically cloak your affiliate links - The benefits of cloaking affiliate links have been discussed frequently on this forum and elsewhere. Digital Product Demon's AFFILIATE mode handles this for you automagically!
Protects your Download Pages - Download pages can only be accessed through a link that includes the buyer's purchase information. These pages are also set to expire after a period you specify - usually 3-5 days after the purchase.
Protects your Download Links - create ugly, cryptic, expiring links that can't be easily shared or posted on freebie forums
Hide your digital product's actual URL - anyone who sees your download link won't have a clue about what your download filename is. Everything's all screwed up with numbers, letters, and special characters that don't mean a thing to anyone but Digital Product Demon Plugin .
Automatically generate PayPal, ClickBank, and EJunkie payment buttons - saving you tons of time fighting PayPal's button factory or customizing your own ClickBank buttons.
And, a true BOMBSHELL for anyone who wants to recruit and pay affiliates for referring customers to your website and to your products:
INSTANT AFFILIATE PAYMENTS!
Allow "affiliates" to sell your products - with no affiliate sign-up required.
