Sell an eBook

Step 1

Create your eBook pages on your website

You’ll need to create two pages on your website:
  1. A public sales page to advertise your eBook. This is where customers will purchase your book.
  2. A “secret” customers-only download page where they can download their purchase.

In your site’s navigation, nest the “secret” pages beneath the public landing page. This creates what’s known as a subdirectory. It will look something like this:

yourwebsite.com/ebook
yourwebsite.com/ebook/download

Step 2

Protect your eBook with MemberSpace

Protect your secret page with MemberSpace so only paying customers can have access. Add your eBook file to this page via your website’s editor.

Remember to keep your sales page (e.g. yourwebsite.com/ebook) public for new customers to view and purchase.

🔐 Optional
For added security,  upload your eBook file to MemberSpace to protect the download link. This helps to ensure the file can only be accessed by customers who’ve purchased the eBook directly.

Step 3

Create a plan for your readers to purchase

Now that your eBook is protected, you’ll create a plan that gives your customers access to it!

MemberSpace offers flexible payment options so you can choose the billing format that works best for your needs:
  • Recurring payment (e.g. $100 per month)
  • Multiple payment (e.g. 3 payments of $100) 
  • One-time payment (e.g. 1 payment of $100)
  • Free (no payment)

eBooks are most often sold via one-time payment. Sometimes a series may be sold via the multiple payment option. 

If you offer multiple eBooks (or other digital products) you’d like to bundle, you can sell different tiers of access by creating multiple plans and differentiating which plans have access to additional content.

Step 4

Add the signup link to your website

Copy your plan’s signup link via the gray button next to your plan’s name. Add the signup link to your sales page so that visitors can purchase your eBook.

And your eBook is live! 🚀
