Q: I have an eBook I plan to sell online. Which service do you recommend to both deliver the eBook and manage affiliate commissions?
A: I’ve got two companies I would suggest checking out for selling your eBook.
ClickBank is probably the biggest seller of eBooks out there, and they will pay the affiliates for you. In my opinion, it’s the place where you will have the most presence and get the most sales.
The last time I sold anything there, and this may have changed, but I was responsible to handle the fulfillment after the sale. That’s going to be a hurdle if you’re not capable of doing that.
Another option is PayLoadz, and they provide an all in on solution. You upload whatever it is you’re selling, and when somebody makes a purchase, the file automatically gets delivered to them.
It’s a nice, carefree system and it runs through PayPal. The one thing with PayLoadz is that you have to handle the payments to your affiliates. Not so much of a burden, unless you’re selling a crazy volume of your eBooks, in which case you could always pay somebody to handle those sorts of administrative duties.
I’ve been very happy with PayLoadz in the two or three years I’ve been using them, and I currently sell my AffStat reports through them.
