I was running a class for my Netpreneurs Online Classroom and we got to the part where we are suppose to learn how to deliver our downloadble digital products.

I don’t want to make this complicated for my students. I want to make this simple, but at the same time offers some form security from online thefts. So I started thinking of a simple script that should be able to do the following:

  • Expiring download link
  • Expiring download page
  • Minimum setup
  • No database required
  • Uses Paypal IPN
  • Emails the customers with their download info
  • Customizable download page, thank you page and email
  • Multiple files product package
  • Allows Paypal Sandbox testing
  • No need to create the Paypal Button form – will generate for you
  • Don’t have to understand Paypal IPN – just know that it’s more secure
  • Strict verification process – verifying price, Paypal email address and currency
