Hello olukay,

Thank you for your request for details on installing and using the WP e-commerce plugin.

Begin by installing the plugin through your WordPress dashboard.

Once you have installed the plugin, you will want to configure the settings for you shop and add your category and product as described in the Quick Start video on WP e-commerce's video tutorial page.

There are additional video tutorials available on that site if you need more detailed instructions on using the WP e-commerce plugin.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Hello olukay,

Thank you for your question about selling your e-book with WordPress. The best way to do this is to install an e-commerce plugin such as WP e-commerce which will allow you to sell digital/downloadable products like your e-book. I would recommend removing the e-book from public_html and instead uploading it when you create the product in WP e-commerce.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
