Digital media with OSC


Aido

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Does anyone out there know if OSC is suitable to use on a site that sells digital media (eg. ebook, documents, reports). Obviously it can sell them but the question is can it handle a successful payment and give the customer a link to download thier product?

 

As an aside, I was considering using PAYPAL as a payment option and wondered if the IPN script would handle this? Any ideas?

 

Thanks guys.

Yes, I know several guys that do this very thing.

 

In fact, here's an example, www.planet-earl.com

If you have a question about any of my posts here, your best bet is to contact me though either Email or PM in my profile, and I'll be happy to help.

Thanks Chris for getting back so quick (I'd only posted and got a mail to say a reply was in).

 

This looks like what I want to be able to do, do you know if this is done with PAYPAL's IPN script?

 

I need to be able to send a download link to a customer after a successful payment.

 

Thanks again.

Yes, I believe it is.

 

When they finishe their transaction at paypal, they are redirected back to the checkout success' page, which has links to all of thier downloads.

 

The email the customer gets has a link to return to the checkout success page (after logging in).
