Do not allow unauthorized downloads
of your eBooks!
Temporary unique download links
Secure-eBooktm - Secured Download will generate a temporary unique download link
for every client who purchases one of your eBooks. And all you have to do is monitoring
your Secure-eBook account to make sure you always have tokens left.
Only your clients should be able to download your eBooks
When selling eBooks that are not themselves protected against piracy (see
Secure-eBook's eBook Activation for a way to
protect your eBooks themsleves), you at least need to prevent people who did not purchase one of
your eBooks to download it illegally. This is a basic protection authors and
publishers should consider for their eBooks.
Especially today, with all the information shared on the Web, providing a fixed
permanent download link for your eBooks will make you lose a lot of potential sales.
With sharing services such as Del.icio.us or social Web sites such as Facebook,
everyone on the planet could be able to find your download link in only a few seconds.
When using Secure-eBook's Secured Download to protect the download links of
your eBooks, you get the possibility to prevent these illegal downloads of your eBooks.
And don't worry...
Secure-eBook makes the whole process
easy for you!
Step 1 - Upload your eBook in your Secure-eBook account
Once you have your Secure-eBook account, your first step is to create a product
for each of your eBooks. Then, for each of your product, you will have to upload
your eBook (this is only required for Secure-eBook's Secured Download).
Step 2 - Place "Buy Now" buttons on your Web site
For each product created in your Secure-eBook account, you will have an option allowing
you to create a "Buy Now" button. Use this option to add "Buy Now"
buttons for your eBooks on your Web site.
Then, all your visitors will be able to purchase your eBooks by clicking on your
"Buy Now" buttons.
Step 3 - Let Secure-eBook manage the purchase and delivery processes
Right after a client clicks on one of your "Buy Now" buttons on your Web site,
his browser displays the Secure-eBook's purchase page (or yours if you
configured your account accordingly). He enters his contact information and submits
his request to purchase.
Your client is then sent to the payment processor you configured in your Secure-eBook
account (PayPal, for example).
Once the payment is confirmed by the payment processor, the Secure-eBook system
will record the transaction in your account and a temporary unique download link will be
sent to your client.
The download link key sent to your client comes with all the necessary information that
will allow your client to download the new eBook he just bought.
And what happens if a client calls you directly to buy one of your eBooks? You
just have to use the manual order function from your Secure-eBook account.
Step 4 - Manage your sales easily
While your clients buy your eBooks, all the transactions are recorded into your
Secure-eBook account. You can display sales reports for specified time
periods and see how often your eBooks were downloaded.
You can even monitor one specific download link and take action on it. This enables
you to see how many times a download link was used (if you allowed it to be used more
than once) and to disable it if you want to.
