If you want to set up your own web store without using one of the services I reviewed in the Direct Sales chapter you can use one of these services to get paid directly to your own bank account. You’ll need to find your API and other tasks that require a little tech savvy and you can probably figure it out, but this is the kind of task that’s easily hired inexpensively using a service like Fiverr. These services all allow instant digital downloads and order forms for physical books. Look for pricing around 2.9% + 30 cents per sale.
