    Selling Soft Goods Online???

    I'm trying to find shopping cart software that allows users to purchase soft goods (.pdf files, articles, images, and mP3s) that they can download right after they purchase and only let them have one download.

    I'm looking every where for a quality package, but I can't find anything that is actually software. All the companies I have found, want me to host on their sites and pay them a monthly fee.

    Has anyone come across an software packages such as this?


    Thanks!

    I know of nothing I can recommend to you but maybe the best solution might be to write your own cart in PHP and mySQL?

    Well like a regsoft.net or something similar would work out good. They charge a processing fee.

    Also you can find some free scripts but you need to know some PHP, ASP, CFM and have a host that supports it!

    Try: http://theexchangeproject.org/

    This is one of the fullest featured programs I have seen online. It is distributed under GPL and offers a lot. It would not be hard to modify it to allow the sell of soft goods.

    I think ICN offers this in their package... check it out

    www.ICNSoftware.com

    And if not they will customize it for you... just ask for a quote.

    I'm totally sold! It's like they made it for my individual circumstance or something.

    Here is another one to consider

    Check out the www.1shoppingcart.com platform.
    Its excellent for softgoods, especially ebooks. I use it on my site and it has a lot of features packed in with it including a shopping cart, of course. Its an ASP solution, so you rent access.

    Great support, from my experience. Have a look at it in operation at my site at www.ecompublishing.com.
