First, You Want to Decide What You are Going to Use as Your Download Page.
If you are just starting out, you have some options available for how buyers will download your product. Here are two options for you to take a look at and see which may work best for you!
Option #1 – Using an Online Store as Your Download Page
There are many online stores like Etsy or Shopify you can use. If this option is your pick, simply link your sales landing page to the product page in your shop.
Another great option is to have a store attached to your website. I personally use aMember as it offers so many helpful tools and displays my products just right!
aMember also enables your customers to sign up to become affiliates so they share products. This allows them to advertise your products for you and receive a commission of the sale in return.
Regardless of which online store you use, by using this option, you can easily send your buyers there. Just link your buy button to your product’s page in your shop.
Option #2 – Create a Download Page in Your Website
You can also create a page on your website to use as a download page. Simply go to your website and create a new page.
On this page you will include images of your product and a kind statement showing your appreciation of purchase. Then, you can upload your product through your media section and link it back to the page.
Create your page and, when it is ready to go, link your buy button and publish your page.
I will also cover how to create a buy button later in this article. BUT you want to consider the pricing for your product first.
I don’t know about you but my desk can get a little… crazy at time.
But, with the right set of organizers, your desk (and mine) can get a beautiful makeover!

Secondly, You Want to Decide What You Product Will Cost.
If this is your first product, you want to make sure you keep your price reasonable but low. A good price range is anywhere from $5 to $15 dollars to start with for your first few products.
Once you make some sales, you can compare what products of yours are selling best at what prices. Using this, you can determine what the best prices are for future products.
Another method to use is to compare your products to other sellers and how much they are selling theirs for. This will give you a good idea to start with.
You want to remember that the goal of your first product is to start making sales. This will not only get you started making money but also build a list of paying customers.

Now, You Can Create a Buy Button.
If you choose to use your website as the download page, you will need a buy button that accepts payments. So, you need to know which third party payment platform you will use to do this.
Choose a Third-Party Payment Platform
Though there are many options out there, an easy one to start with (and stay with) is PayPal. PayPal makes it easy to accept payments as many people are already using this platform to securely make payments online.
If you don’t have a PayPal account set up for your business, just create one today. Its super easy!
With your PayPal business account, you can use it for any future sales or purchases you make for your business. All in one place!
Creating Your Buy Button
Now that you have a PayPal business account, you can easily create your first buy button. For an in depth tutorial showing how it’s done, check out PayPal’s step-by-step guide.
Using an online store as your download page? Again, all you need to do is link your sales page to your button. There is no need to link a payment system as your online shop will process that for you.
Testing Your Download Page Buy Button
Now it is time to test your buy button and download page to ensure everything is working seamlessly. Simply click through to your download page and click your buy button.
If you decided to list your product on an online store, you should be directed to your product’s sales page. If so, you know your page is good to go!
But if using your website page as the download page, when you click your buy button you should be prompted to purchase. Go ahead and purchase your product so you can see the whole process the way a buyer would.
Remember to use a different account than the account your buy button is linked to. So, be sure to use your personal account rather than business account to make the purchase.
Now you are done setting up your download page and buy button, you can start selling your product!
