Payment Method Questions…

Dear Sir/Madam,
After thoroughly investigating your Click2Sell Merchant Guide I still
feel some questions about payment methods aren’t answered for me yet,
so please allow me to ask you them…

1. I have created a newsletter you pay for on a monthly basis that I
want to sell using your subscription service, but is it possible to
let my customers download a different product every month using the
same subscription key, the same download link and while I can still
track sales while doing that? And how do I do this?

2. I also have a high-end product that sells for several hundreds of
dollars and it would be understandable if a customer can’t pay for the
total amount in one go, so is it possible to have them pay in 3 or
whatever amount of installments? Perhaps with the subscription
service? Or by charging their creditcard? How do I do this?

3. I don’t understand the payment processor part of the guide. You
see, I don’t want to do any affiliate programs just yet but I DO want
to make sure customers can pay either using a creditcard or
PayPal…but it isn’t clear to me how I enable both options for them
AND how I change the settings so the amount paid for will end up in my
PayPal account. How do I do this?

Thank you for this great service, I have been struggling to find a
good service to use for offering downloadable products and simply –
there is no competitor out there quite like you guys. I look forward
to hearing from you. Kindest regards, Dennis Miedema

Dear Dennis,

thanks for contacting us!

Let me answer your questions one by one.

1. Our system’s support of subscription products is not very robust. All
that the system will do is just to gather the list of subscribers and
calculate income and commissions to affiliates (if there is any). There
won’t be any downloads or links. However, using our API service you can
create a more flexible and powerful way to manage your subscribers: API
could allow you to automatically create things (like accounts, etc.), or
generate a download link and then automatically send an email to a buyer
and so on.
You can see the details of API here:

2. It is possible to do that via subscriptions, however keep in mind
that you would need to manually unsubscribe the customer because he/she
will be charged indefinitely otherwise (unless he/she make an
unsubscription himself/herself).
Of course, if you have PayPal Website Payments PRO, or
Worldpay account, then you can accept direct credit cards payments and
thus your buyers could pay you by credit cards.

3. The system is very simple.
You add a product in to the system.
You also provide the necessary data of your merchant accounts (PayPal,
Moneybookers, Worldpay, or Google Checkout). Basically,
this is the part where you setup what payment options your customers
will have. For example, if you setup PayPal and Moneybookers accounts,
then your customers will be able to pay you by PayPal or Moneybookers.
So if you want your customers to be able to pay you by PayPal or credit
cards, there are two ways:

a) setup only PayPal account. In this way, your customers will be
redirected from Click2Sell checkout page to PayPal checkout page and
they will be able to pay you by PayPal funds or by credit card.

b) setup your PayPal account and PayPal Website Payments PRO, or Worldpay account. In this way, your customers could pay
you by credit card directly in Click2Sell checkout page – OR – they can
go to PayPal checkout page and pay by PayPal funds or credit card from

You don’t need to setup product prices in those accounts (e.g., PayPal).
Everything related to a product is setuped in product adding process.

I hope I answered your questions clearly enough.
If you have more questions or need further explanations, just let me know!
