    Hello forum members, I am in need of some advice. I am currently working on the best way to go about building a website to sell a digital product that I own the license for. My main concern being how to make the checkout process smooth and fast for them while still being secure from stealing the file from the site.
    I was planning on doing just a wordpress site but cannot figure out how best to "arrange" everything. Any advice is welcome and appreciated.

    Have you thought of ClickBank? That way you will be able to get affiliates to promote the product for you.
    Or do you just want to sell from your own site?

    never tried woocommerce, trying to find something that doesn't require a lot more, money has been wrapped up else where didn't plan on needing more to securely distribute the file

    You must create a license code in every month updates on your software.

    And renewal of the latest features.
    I am sure, if you only sell a single software, then your software will be freely distributed in the Internet for free

    You can go with WP E Commerce, WooCommerce or WHMCS. I personally use WHMCS. It is compatible with Wordpress and non-Wordpress websites. These applications allow you to add your different products, and set prices for them.

    If you want to sell securely, you need to make sure to update these scripts frequently have them password protected. At least with two layers. It's also important to offer to secure payment options. Obviously, to have more sales, you should offer a wider payment option.

    A few that you can look into: PayPal, 2CheckOut (credit card), Skrill (credit card), Stripe (credit card), Bitcoin (favorite because fast, anonymous, and no fees), Payza, and PerfectMoney.

    would anyone be willing to take a look at my current website and give honest feedback on the layout/design of it all? I put it together and an second guessing everything and any input would be great
