    Hey, Peter.

    One provider that stands out for me and you didn’t mention is Sellfy, it doesn’t claim to be “Paypal killer” and thus plays nicely with it. In my experience accepting PayPal is good for your business, dealing with them – not so much.

    But it really seems like this market is saturated with players from all over the world. As you know, monthly payments are requested by some of these providers, and I think that the pay-as-you-sell model is really far more superior and newbie friendly. Curious to hear what’s your take on this.

      Yes Sellfy is also one of the best digital selling site, but however I listed the top five sites for digital goods selling. I agree with you pay-as-you-sell model best for the newbies and I will go through it thoroughly and will be back to you. Keep in touch.
