    Hi guys,

    I am trying to put my ebook up on ebay and want a fixed price and i want it linked up so that when they do the payment they automatically can download without any action needed to be taken from me, but i cant figure out quite how to do so. Anyone? :)

    I think you have to setup an auto-messages, auto-messages can be setup using pushauction website, but good things don't come free..

    I did a quick google search and I can't link yet because I am still new. But the google term I use was "how to set up automatic ebay ebook download". Hope this helps.

    I would recommend you to stay away from this method. I personally wouldn't risk my eBay and/or PayPal account
    to be banned for a couple of cents which is the most you will make out of this method!

    You have to know this is against eBay's policy and they will eventually catch you and take the needed measures.

    I tried it last year and failed miserably.

    First of all the only ebooks that would get any kind of attention on feebay are "how to make money". Trust me, no one would even click on ebook that says: "how to grow oranges"

    Even those barely sell, the price will range between 0.99$-5$ and you'll be lucky to get 2 sales per day.

    And finally, like said earlier, digital stuff aren't allowed on ebay, so if you wanna do it legit, you'll have to burn them into CDs and ship it to your buyer, which is an additional pain in the ass that is not worth the hype.

    FINAL VERDICT: This method is balls. Move on to something else!
