oh, hrm  

I just realized Monday is the first of February, and therefore the day the second chance to buy “Hot Time” is supposed to launch. I don’t know how to make a Paypal button that hooks up to an instant download. Does one have to be a merchant type on Paypal to do that? (Because if one does, I’m going to have to just set it up as a donate button and manually email everybody who buys a copy of the story their copy, because paying for the merchant services seems like a bit of a foolish prospect until I have some sense of how well sales might go, y’know?)

I just created a button, to see if it worked. It worked fine with my basic Paypal account.

A button attached to an automagic download? How'd you do it? I just don't know how!

When you have entered the parameters, price, etc. You get a html code that you copy and paste into the Webpage's code. I didn't do it, since I just have a livejournal
and I am not sure it works with Livejournal.
