DuckSell - Sell your digital products on your own website and deliver them securely
DuckSell allows you to sell your digital products on your own website and deliver them securely to your customers. You can easily sell various types of downloads. For example: pdf, ebook, program, template, photo, music, video, audio, mp3 etc.
The script automatically generates a unique, secure download URL for every purchase which do not show the location of the download files on the server. For every purchase new license key is generated and it can be set to expire if required. Unlimited products and multiple products per order are supported.
Tracking cookies are seamlessly used so you can know exactly where your customers are coming from and how they interact and convert on your website. Check referrals in your reports and optimize your marketing efforts for best conversion rates.
Note: there is no frontend website here, you must create your own website first (using templates or wordpress). Once you have your website you can create "buy now" buttons in DuckSell to link those two together.
Installs in the LAMP App just fine.
@robi DuckSell [deprecated/archived] - last commit was 2y ago, don't think this qualifies
@msbt It still works fine, and it could be forked by the team and used to fill a gap in this ecosystem.
Have a better option?
@robi it sounds like something that WooCommerce is capable of doing, but since I don't know what you're looking for exactly, not sure about that
@msbt WP and Woo is not a good option, hence avoiding all that complexity.
DuckSell is brilliant in that you can make a payment button and use it anywhere, not just WP.
It's a commerce backend that tracks visits and conversions, has a referral system and many other features like a plugin system that support the truly self-hosted experience.
@murgero what other option is there?

Doesn't seem sustainable to have the @staff fork it and maintain the app themselves. Unless its been forked and maintained elsewhere I don't see this going anywhere tbh.
