    Where is the best place to sell your own E-Books other than DP and how do you avoid people who try and scam you by getting refunds from Paypal once they have the product?


    Cheers.

    Well, basically you can't avoid people who try to scam you by getting refunds from Paypal. There's no solution for this problem. You can try to sell your ebook at V7N or the Warrior Forum, but DP has the most users, that's why people start to sell their ebooks at DP and not at some other forum.

    That seems extremely problematic.

    Surely the vast majority of your sales will be scammed off you? - Especially if you're selling Blackhat methods when people are more willing to be a little nefarious in their actions.


    Hmm.. That sucks.

    All of the above is true.

    But the key to avoiding the things they said is selling the method at a high-ticket price ($100+) and and offering value-added services such as personal coaching. That will keep most of the people who you would'nt want to sell to anyway away.

    Just think about how hard it would be for people to get something that cost $5000 like nevarcs thread lol. Nobody's is going to share something they paid $5000 for, no way.

    Thanks for the tips guys. I'm about to go live with my E-Books and I guess DP is the first place to go. They're Blackhat methods so other than DP where are some good places to generate sales that allow Blackhat books?

    Thanks in advance.

    One more advice: If you decide to sell your product at DP or some other forum be prepared that around 1% to 6% of your buyers will ask for a refund. That's the usual rate if you sell products in the "make money" niche.

    Btw it doesn't really matter whether you discuss blackhat or whitehat tactics in your ebook, if somebody feels like he wants to get it and share it, he'll do that, and the next time you check a warez site you'll see your sales thread's link and a rapidshare download link below that.

    I run an ebook store myself. Use a legal disclaimer and also include in the terms of services page a statement to the effect that due to the product being delivered digitally refunds will be processed on a case by case basis...and we reserve the right to refuse refunds.

    I also had this issue previously when we first launched. Now if they open a dispute within PayPal all I do is refer to the terms of services pages ensuring to paste the direct link in my reply, and the customer and paypal are pretty quick to close the dispute.

    On the other side of the coin, if an issue is found with one of our products or the claim is valid, then we prefer to offer them a free product of their choice which would be slightly more expensive then the one purchased. Just another way to keep that customer happy and coming back to purchase more products from us.

    add the ebook to clickbank aswell so you can get affiliates promoting it and spreading the word more.

    Do not trust this user, all products that he has and the storefront he is selling from is stolen. Cannot be trusted. Avoid "everypcneed"

    you can also add a disclaimer in your sales thread:

    DISCLAIMER: These products has the ability to make you money, but is not guaranteed how much. As with all money-making products, results are dependent upon the amount of work put into it. as well there is no refund.

    lol
