Just uploaded a new version of the Brad Sucks Digital Download Store. Two big changes:

  • No longer requires Amazon S3. Your store files can be local and links will expire after your given duration (mod_rewrite required).
  • Variable prices via text input. Previously variable prices could only be selected via a pre-defined list in the drop down. Now buyers can specify whatever they want as long as it’s more than zero.

Next stuff I’ll be adding:

  • Integrate a shopping cart I wrote so that other payment options are possible (Google Checkout/VISA/etc).
  • Handle zero dollar downloads.

Hooray for work!

Nice! A variable pricing (0-whatever) cart is exactly what I’d want to use some day. Awesome.

Amazing. Keep up the good work. Love that you don’t have to use S3 anymore.

I love that it uses amazon. When people complain about a “bad download” or whatever I know there’s a 99.99% chance it’s their connection. The cost is so minimal, it’s totally worth the assurance.

The only thing I need now is a sure-fire solution to the email problem (blocked download emails to AOL and many others). But that may require setting up a service on a dedicated site like e-junkie and getting certified and whitelisted in lots of places. I would gladly pay for that service if you ever put it together.

I researched that a bunch and it looks like you need SPF records in your server’s DNS to get through to AOL. I haven’t set it up yet but I probably should.

Also in the version of the BSDDS I’m working on right now it forwards the buyer to the download page after the transaction. Rather than making them wait for the email to show up. So that’ll at least sidestep the problem a bit.

That’s awesome. We got my store to send them to a “thanks” page with their download link on there – I guess that’s similar but somehow there are still people that manage to not get to that page.
