Automatic distribution of ebooks

So, you have written a few ebooks and are using PayPal to sell them. Every time someone buys, PayPal sends you an email. As soon as you get time, you send a message with a PDF copy of an ebook.

After a few weeks, you are selling a hundred ebooks a day. You cannot keep up with the emails. What do you do?

Simple. Use the AWeber app. Get a free 30-day trial of AWeber and link it to PayPal using the instructions below. Every ebook will be emailed out as an attachment to your personalized message. It will be emailed out as soon as payment is received.

Before you set up your AWeber-PayPal integration, set up the Messages (emails you will be sending out).
