I want to start selling digital products on my blog site but haven't the foggiest idea of how to start. I see some plugins that allow you to add a shopping cart - this is close to what I want to do. In short, I want to sell a digital product, collect the money, then allow the purchaser to download one specific digital product.
I also want to accept Paypal as well as the usual credit cards. The plugins I saw only work with Paypal (I think). So I think I have to get a merchant account? And some sort of certificate?
I am a complete tyro with this stuff so any suggestions are welcome.
