    I am currently configuring a store and have chosen Paypal as my cart etc.

    When I called paypal to ask about selling downloads they told me I should create a "Buy now" button and once they have paid, the redirect should take them directly to the down load.

    I have no idea how to set that up so that once they have downloaded, they can redirect again to the store so they can buy another. I would also like to know what is stopping them from just copying the url and giving it out for free downloads.

    This is my first time to set up a store and I'm not finding any help from pay pal or in the cpanel FAQ's.

    Can anyone here help me?

    thank you :)

    Check out oscommerce (http://www.oscommerce.com/solutions/oscommerce). it's a bit beefy and takes some setting up to be happy, but it supports the selling of physical, as well as virtual (downloadable) products. This would solve your problem of people paying then passing around the download link.
