RayYong Hi Eva,
After I follow your recommdation for ebookgenerator, I had decided to brought this software, although I've been to some unhappy event with their support. But I'm finally reach to the last problem.
I don't know how to upload it into my hosting server, so that my client can download it after making their payment with clickbank.com.
What sort of HTML or CGI-BIN I need to do to make it work?
Pls help me here,

Hi Ray Yong,

An easy solution would be to simply email the ebook via attachment to the person who purchased it.  This would be a good idea if you don't have a host that allows you to have downloads from your site.

If you can have downloads from your site, then you can upload the ebook using special software such as:

WS_FTP by Ipswitch athttp://www.wsftp.com
(make sure to upload in binary format for ebooks)

Or you can use the one that I prefer called CuteFTP
athttp://www.cuteftp.com-- it automatically uploads files in the correct formats.  I find it easier to use than WS_FTP.

Once you have uploaded the ebook, you can link it on the download page in the same way that you link to other sites using the following code:

(I don't know if it will show up here... so I placed a period in front of the a href which you would remove before placing on your site)

<.a href="ebookname.exe">click here to download</a>

Of course you would substitute "ebookname.exe" with the name of your ebook.  Leave the .exe at the end of the file since all ebooks generated by that software would have that extension.

Once you have placed the code on your download (thank you) page, your customer should be able to download it from the link.

Does this answer the question?

Eva :-)
