Selling eBooks online has many advantages. You don’t have to worry about
inventory and production cost is virtually zero. In many ways, selling
eBooks is an almost hassle free business.
Almost… As you probably already know,
there is no such things as an ideal hassle free business. Whatever business
you get into, you will always have at least a few nagging recurrent
problems to sort out there and there and despite its many advantages, the
business of selling ebooks has its problems of its own.
One major worry with eBooks is piracy. If you sell your eBooks as plain
unencrypted PDF, one of your buyers could easily upload your eBook on an
anonymous free hosting web page or blog and let the whole world download it
for free. It might not hurt your sales too much if your site has an
excellent Google ranking as it unlikely the free hosting web page will
outperform your professional web site however you might still loose a few
thousand dollars a year because of this dishonest customer. And there is
still the risk that over time his blog gains in popularity and outperforms
your web site cutting your sales down to almost nothing.
Encrypting and securing the eBooks you sell is therefore essential. Now you
have to find the right encryption solution. The right encryption solution
meets the following requirements:
- It should be easy for your
customer to use. If half your customers send you angry emails because
they have problems opening the eBook, then you will end up in an after
sales nightmare. You will spend hours and hours every day answering
emails and phone calls and you might end up with a high refund and
chargeback rate. In the end using the wrong encryption solution might
cost you more than piracy…
- It should turn thieves into customers. How? The unlocked eBook should
show a sample of your work. A sample that will convince the thief that
it’s worth the while to pay to unlock the eBook and read the rest.
only meets these two requirements but they also offer smooth integration
with many shopping carts and payment processors. What is more their support
