Depending on the product type, you have various options for providing your product or service.
In case your product consists of files (Product types: Digital Download, Online Courses, Newsletter (optional here)), you can upload these for free to our servers. We take care of secure delivery to buyers, including video streaming. You can organize your files into folders, rename them, and add descriptions. There's no limit to the number of files you can upload, although individual files can be a maximum of 5 GB in size.
In the email following a successful purchase, buyers will receive a link to a download page on tentary.com. On this page, they can access your products. The links to your files are encrypted and can't be shared. As an additional protection against sharing downloads, each download page displays the name and email of the buyer.
If your product is located on another server, or consists of a link to a Zoom call, a Facebook group, or something similar, then choose the product type "Link/Access". You can also provide additional information like a description or necessary instructions (for example, a password that is needed to open it).
In the email following a successful purchase, buyers will receive a link to a download page on tentary.com. On this page, they can access the link and see the description you've provided.
New: For products of type "Link/Access", multiple variants can now be created to sell different content or versions. For example, sell an entry package and a premium package, or sell access to events on different days.
You can enable different settings for your product. After enabling some of these options, you will see further explanations about them.
