Q: I’ve decided to manage my affiliate program with iDevAffiliate software and I’ll be integrating it with PayPal. The product I will be selling is an ebook, and I’d like to know how I can set up automatic delivery for it. I would prefer to keep things inhouse as much as possible and avoid paying outside services. How can I do this with iDevAffiliate and PayPal, or is there a software I can use to integrate the two?
A: I am not familiar with how to integrate the two, but I’m sure there are hacks to do it. iDevAffiliate should be able to help with that issue.
Personally, I wanted to do the same thing a couple years back, and I went with a company called PayLoadz.
PayLoadz will manage the whole process for you: hosting the digital product, tracking and reporting sales, integrating with PayPal, and an affiliate program.
It’s a quick and easy solution. You upload your file there, create some confirmation e-mails, and provide your PayPal account information. They handle the fulfillment and copy you on sales notifications.
While you could do this a number of ways, I think many other options will result in manual fixes and hassles.
