    Automated systems

    Hi Guys

    I want to have a website where I can sell a few digital goods that can be downloaded immediately after payment is done. The payment will be only via Paypal.

    1. What kind of site will be such as described above, meaning, how can the downloads be automatic(without human intervention) immediately after payment?
    2. Are such site templates available free/paid to download?
    3. I am not skilled in languages like PHP, ASP, etc so will I be still able to control such a site as an admin?

    Thanks in advance and your time much appreciated.

    Jon

    Your best bet would be to study some form of scripting language before opening a store. Especially selling online goods. However, you can use Online Shopping Carts (CS-CART) for example.

    My experience with CS-CART goes as follows :
    - From the programmer's perspective, it's a nightmare.
    - From the general user, it does whatever you'll need it to do.

    Other than that. Paypal has several types of API's that you'll be able to use for automatic payment and use.

    And there are sites out there that advertise free templates (oswd.org for example).

    Great, Thanks Heaps Aalicki,

    I will give a go to CS-Cart, am sure I will be able to use it as I am not a programmer, hence no nightmares
