The last year I wrote some E-books and I want to start selling some of them online. But I don't want to manage the paying of it, I want that a company like Clickbank does that for me. Is Clickbank the best company for this, or does somebody have experience with some better ways to sell products online without the customer/paying managing?

Thanks in advance

Clickbank is the best for digital products.

Getting a merchant account for ebooks would be next to impossible anyway...

I sell an E-Book on-line. I did get my own merchant account (Verisign Payflow Link with Total Merchant Services). Considering costs it is slightly more profitable than Clickbank. The real reason for using them is for some sales of other services that I could not do through ClickBank.

I still use ClickBank for sales of a spreadsheet and some other stuff. I am very satisfied with them.

Clickbank sucks. (My own personal opinion of course.)

Want a good deal? payloadz.com

Tell em Frankie boy sent you.

(just kidding about the Frankie boy part, they would have no idea what you are talking about)

I have used Clickbank for quite some time without any problems. I have been quite happy with them.

2Checkout offers a similar service, but they have many problems with customer redirects for downloads and email receipts that are never sent to customers. 2Checkout's rates are significantly less expensive, but not enough to make it worth the huge headache, unless you are only doing an order here and there.
