    Anyone Selling Ebooks, Software and Other Digital Products On Ebay NOW . . .

    I would like to get some up to date information and advice about selling Digital Information
    Products, Ebooks and stuff on Ebay.

    Is it OK to do instant download for buyer or must the Digital Information Product be burned
    to cd-r. Does it make any difference to used Ebay Classified Ads to sell Digital Information Products.

    There must be some way out of here. Perhaps Ebay protest too much !!!

    It is not OK to do instant downloads. It's just ebay can't watch every seller and make sure you aren't doing instant downloads. You have to burn it to a disk and send it to the customer by mail.

    Also Ebay Classified Ads cost you a 10 buck listing fee. Are you sure what you are selling is going to be able to make you enough to cover that?

    Browsing thru eBay Digital Information Products, Ebooks and stuff I stumbled upon a seller who has the following in his items for sale listing :

    WARNING - THERE IS NO SHIPPING.
    We Will Send You A Link To Our Website Where You Will Have Full Access To Install Your Software to your PC
    This Information Does NOT Come On CD Or DVD This Information Is Not Shipped Through Mail


    I am very curious about this listing and wonder if what is being done is really permitted or is the seller flying under the radar ???

    Instant download . . . Direct download - is there a difference and what does eBay have to say about it.

    I don't find fresh and recent threads in the forum about this topic . . . that's why I started this thread. Time was when loads of folk were all for selling Digital Information Products, Ebooks and stuff on eBay until the rules and regulations were changed and it seems there was a mass exodus of Ebooks sellers.

    in my opinion ebooks take alot of your time if you make them yourself and give you little money.

    I really was not thinking of writing and creating my own eBooks.

    I prefer to buy Digital Information products and eBooks with resell rights or private label rights.

    Ebook marketing does not seem to be as popular as it was several years back.
