E-Junkie Has A Simple No Mess Setup
E-junkie has the ability to sound digital downloads via a buy now or a add to cart button. For $5 a month you get unlimited transactions and you can store up to 200 MB. As the typical Paypal fees are 2.9% +.30 cents per transaction. If we through out the 30 cents, it would be 1$172 to pay $5 to paypal (depending on how many transactions that would be lower cause 30 cents a pop will eventuality add up). You can have up to 10 products. The 200 mb is what causes me concern. If you're selling videos that could chew up space (even zipped up).
Selz.com Slick Flexible Shopping
Selz.com is a slick format that charges. They have cool tools that will stamp a pdf for those selling ebooks. They have tools to put your store on Facebook and other social media. For free you pay 4.9% + 30 cents for 5 products. If you go up to $12.99 you get unlimited products and you can customize your design. If you want a shopping cart it's $4.99 a month. If you want to accept Paypal it's $4.99. Slick yes. It just seems like they charge for thing that others things are not. For $20 a month I get paypal, a cart, unlimited products, and a combined 3.9%. I find their system confusing. If I pay them their combined 3.9% do I still pay paypal their 2.9% With Selz you get paid via stripe which ends up going into your bank account.
Gumroad: Great For Software
Gumroad allows you to accept anything for 5% + 25 cents per transaction. This is for unlimited products, and unlimited products. The one thing that is seriously missing is a shopping cart. They do have an affiliate program. That is a little clunky as you have to invite people to be an affiliate (so it's not easy). They do offer a pre-orders function and if you're selling software with an activation code this is the place where gumroad excels. I do like that they automatically deposit into my checking account via ACH (or paypal).
Do it Yourself Plugins
There is a free Simple Paypal Shopping Cart From Tips and Tricks where you could use this tool with one of the ecommerce theme from Elegant Themes. Tips and Tricks has a very versatile estore plugin for a one time fee for $49. This is a super flexible cart plugin. If you want additional payment options that is a one time fee of $40.
Easy Digital Downloads (EDD) plugin is versatile until you go to sell something then you pay roughly $50 a feature. I like the look of their site, and they seem very flexible. If I want to sell via paypal business that add on is $49 for a single site.
Which Way I'm Leaning?
After watching some videos on Lynda.com on Woo Commerce, and see all the fees that can come and go, I think with the right theme, E-junkie may be the way I end up going. It's simple, and if you don't have a ton of products, it shouldn't be that expensive. There is next to no fees to get going, and at $5 a month, it would take years to match the fees associated with some of these FIY plugins. I want a cart, and easy downloads.
