If you want to sell digital products using eCommerce Express, one of our users has used "Linklok" and recommends it. You simply leave the "thank you" URL blank (in eCommerce Express settings) and let Linklok take care of the digital delivery of your product (it's just $29.95). Since this is a 3rd party product, please note we can't support it, but you can contact the Linklok developers for support.

If you don't have a Paypal account yet, sign up now. There's no setup or monthly fees. We recommend Paypal and use it too.


Advanced Tips:

As of v1.3 developers can create their own payment gateways which integrate with eCommerce Express without having to touch 1 line of code in the eCommerce Express package. This makes it more scalable, flexible and update-friendly. We've made it as easy as possible to extend eCommerce Express just the way you want to. Developers will need some PHP and Javascript knowledge and a basic understanding of the Concrete5 framework will help. Developers can even sell their payment gateway packages in the Concrete5 marketplace and keep 100% of the profits! Please download:
