Selling digital items

Selz offers a powerful and easy way for online entrepreneurs and personal brands to sell digital items such as eBooks, software, programs, video tutorials, music and photos.

We take care of the hosting of your digital item, including the digital delivery to your buyer post-purchase at no extra cost. As an entrepreneur who uses Selz, we have 3 robust plans to meet your needs – and grow with you.

What type of files can I sell?

Selz allows the sale of most file types. If you want to sell an item file type not included, send us an email with your item file type request and we may be able to add it for you.

What size files can I sell?

Our file size limit per file is 15GB. You can add up to 20 files at 15GB per item listing. Read more about multifile products here.

How many files can I sell?

If you are on our Lite, Standard or Pro plan, your store can have unlimited products at no extra cost.

If you want to offer a multifile digital item, such as a digital course with different file types, your item can have up to 20 files 15GB and under. For example, you can have one product with up to 20 files as long as those files are each under 15GB.

How is my digital item delivered to my buyer?

When a buyer completes their purchase for a digital item, they will see a download window at the end of the checkout process, including their order confirmation number, the product purchased, and a download button.

Post-purchase download screen

The buyer also receives an order confirmation email, including the order confirmation receipt and link to download the product.

Where do buyers download my files from?

A buyer downloads from a content delivery network (CDN) to increase download speed. A CDN is an interconnected system of cache servers that use geographical proximity as criteria for delivering web content.

This means, for example, instead of downloading a file from a server far away in the US if a buyer lives in the UK, the file can be downloaded from a server closer to where they’re located.
