Selling digital items is not as easy as one would think. Most digital items are subject to be duplicated and when selling them with typical payment systems, chances are the item is not covered by any type of seller protection, leaving the vendor open to chargeback scams.
While Bitcoin is the obvious choice when selling digital items, setting everything up can take some effort. However, there’s a better way.
It’s called Satoshi Box, a web browser app that allows you to upload your files, place a price tag on them and get paid everytime someone downloads the file. This can save you the work of having to check transactions and sending the file, automating the process completely.
The minimal fee for Satoshi Box is 6% or 0.0009BTC. When someone downloads your file, your coins are paid automatically to your BTC address after network confirmation. Satoshi Box reserves the right to delete files that don’t have traffic after 30 days.
