    Software Sales/Unlock Codes

    I'm looking for a shopping cart/e-commerce solution, hopefully affordable, that will allow me to offer a free, timed version download of an application, then sell the unlock code, with realtime approval and automatic emailing of the unlock code.

    I have to be able to give the cart a block of pre-determined license numbers, supplied by the software engineers.

    It would be a bonus if this cart could also track commission and affiliate sales.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    I don't think you're being ignored. It's just
    that what you want is complex and specialised.

    I actually set something like this up myself.
    I had to cobble it together from diverse sources.
    It was an utter pain in the *ss.


    Don't give up hope. I'm sure there is something
    out there, you just need to refine your search-terms.

    Sundown, what you are looking for is a combination of software and scripting that works together to form a complicated process.

    Most software companies that have this done have it custom built to suit their needs, which can be very expensive.

    Since you probably don't have the kind of money they spent in your budget I would suggest searching the Internet for people that might be able to help you with one or more of the components neccessary, and then piecing the components together yourself (or hiring someone to piece them together)

    You may not be able to afford eveything you're looking for (i.e. you may be able to afford either the timed trail period in the software or the online registration which allows complete access, but may not be able to afford both)...

    You may have to do this in stages. I wish I could help you more but I have never personally dealt with software distribution. I'm sure some people here have... maybe they can give some more advice.

    Good luck!
