What is the Best Way to Sell an eBook?

Hi,

I'm wondering what the best way to sell an ebook is, if using paypal or clickbank. Which charges a larger percentage, which is a better user experience for the customer and any other feedback that you all might have.

Thanks!

well, i think Clickbank has higher fees, but they also do a lot more for you. With paypal, you could get a membership script and run your affiliates yourself, but it can be a hassle if you don't know what you are doing. Clickbank handles a lot of the affiliate commissions for you, so you don't have to worry about it. you just need to make sure that you provide an affiliate area for them to get banner ads, swipe emails etc....

Now, if you aren't planning to have any affiliates and just want to sell it on your own, paypal is cheaper.

Thanks for your input. I haven't decided if I will be looking for affiliates as well yet.

One downside that I see to Clickbank is that they essentially have your customers, their contact information, their billing info, clickbank shows up on their credit card statement, etc.

That can be a good thing, it helps your privacy, especially if you are working under a pen name and don't want people finding your house.

Point taken!

This is the reason that a forum is great for bouncing ideas around and discovering things that you may not have thought of before.

Thanks!
