EcommerceBytes-NewsFlash, Number 1247 - March 29, 2006     3 of 5 Launches New Service that Works with PayPal

Email This Story to a Friend announced the biggest enhancement to its services since its launch in 2002 - PayLoadz Express. The new service provides a simple and seamless way for anyone that has a digital good to begin selling their product instantly.

The system relies on PayPal for payment processing and the standard PayLoadz service backend to handle the file delivery. The service uses a single step product-creation process, allowing sellers to begin selling products without a learning curve. A basic form page prompts users to create a product, set a price, and upload their files on one page. The system generates code used to place purchase links anywhere users want to sell their items, including web sites, emails, community sites, and even on eBay. The system also allows future customization for advanced users by integrating the Express service with a full featured PayLoadz account automatically.

Shannon Sofield, Lead Developer of the new service, said, "The new PayLoadz Express service is a fundamental change to the process of selling digital goods online. Previously, anytime a person wanted to sell a file, they would have to register for a service, install complicated scripts, or program their own solution. With our new system, a person simply fills out a few fields, uploads her file and she is instantly selling her good. It is the most profound enhancement to the system we've ever implemented, and will create an opportunity for even the technologically challenged to make money on the internet."

Existing PayLoadz users can also use the system for a quick way to add an item to their existing account by simply entering their Paypal email address in the email field.
