success, a product the buyers can download is important. After you get paid
they download or receive access to a digital product that needs no physical
storage and that has no manufacturing costs. You also have the advantage of the
system being fairly automated. It does need checking and there is a process for
the initial set up. Just like a physical product there will be returns and
chargebacks. The key to reducing or eliminating those is providing buyers with
How do I know what buyers want?
