I want to sell e-books and other digital media online. How is that different than selling hard goods? Do I need a special ebusiness solution?

Selling digital media and your ebusiness solution

There are some different options you'll want in your ebusiness solution to sell digital media. Instead of shipping hard goods, you are going to be delivering files. You'll want to find ebusiness software that offers a means of making it easy for your customers to get their files but protects you from giving away your goods. Depending on how large your files are, you can either send them via email or choose an advanced ebusiness solution that creates a temporary page for your customers to go to download the files they've purchased. Pages like this are dynamically generated based upon their order and only available for a set period of time, eliminating the possibility of someone sharing the link with all their friends.
