I am just getting started with DLGuard and am wondering what the best way to handle this scenario is- I have a software product that is sold through one sales letter but comes in 8 different versions depending on the users situation.

I don't want to present someone at the bottom of the sales letter with 8 buy buttons- is there a way that I can offer them a way to pick which version to download AFTER they have paid- all versions are the same price. I don't particularly want them to be able to download more than one but I don't want them to get stuck trying to decide before they order. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hello,

I would recommend a drop down with the options in it. Then when you click on the option, it and then go, the script (maybe written in javascript) will load the DLGuard Product URL affiliated with their selection..

Alternatively, you could do this with a radio button or something.

Should be relatively easy to put together.

Thanks for the suggestion.

After playing with dlguard some more, it occurred to me I could do this (I think): They click the order link, they pay, and then dlguard takes them to a custom download page where they have a drop down menu to choose the type of product, which is linked to more dlguard URLs but the products are set up as free.

Can I limit them to being able to only click once on that selection page, though?

No, I don't think this would work.

What will happen is if you set it up as a free product, it forces them to put in their email address again - which they won't want to do. Also, there is no way to say, once they have downloaded product x - they can't download anything else.

I would recommend the drop down box issue. That way they are purcahsing the product they want and DLGuard is managing everything for you.

Hi Capforge,

I'd recommend going for the drop down box pre-sale as well, but if you really do prefer it to be on the thankyou page, then you could display certain download links using a drop down box through Javascript, if you know some Javascript or have a programmer to create this for you.


When you bought DLGuard you probably noticed the two versions I offer on the download page - the Windows version, and the Mac/Linux version.

I'm not sure if you could create a similar design for your page, being 8 products?


I hope this helps!

cheers
Sam

Here is the code:

Just change Product 1 to product name and www.product1.html to the URL of your raw sales link...

Code:
<form name="go">
<select name="menu" onChange="location=document.go.menu.options[document.go.menu.selectedIndex].value;" value="GO">
<option value="#">Select One</option>
<option value="http://www.product1.html">Product 1</option>
<option value="http://www.product2.html">Product 2</option>
<option value="http://www.product3.html">Product 3</option>
<option value="http://www.product4.html">Product 4</option>
<option value="http://www.product5.html">Product 5</option>
<option value="http://www.product6.html">Product 6</option>
<option value="http://www.product7.html">Product 7</option>
</select>
</form>

Espradley, thanks for the code... I can use this as well, and I'm sure thats true for many others.

Where exactly does this form go?

Hey,

Put it any where you want.

Its purpose is to allow your memebers to select a product from the drop down box and it will take them to the sales page for your product...

So you would want the link to point to something like www.yourdomain.com/dlg/sell.php?p=whatever

So, it essentially goes on your sales page...and your users can select it from the list...

Sam, I am moving this post to the membership tricks post!
