I've very little experience with web programming and know little about security issues.

I run a site about software that makes money through affiliate sales. All the large software companies I deal with will let me resell by downloading the software to customers and will give me a much higher commission.

How difficult is it going to be to set up a software download secure store?

I think I need -

store software - eg oscommerce
merchant account - eg world pay

modify oscommerce to work with the software companies authenication systems.

My main question is - is it worth all the hassle for double the commission or should I just stick with affiliate sales?

Thanks for your help.
