Through platform, Dropbox users can monetize their uploads
There are now numerous avenues to sell products online, with platforms such as Soldsie even enabling consumers to buy with a Facebook comment. Now Sellbox wants to provide a way for anyone to sell downloads of digital files direct from their Dropbox or Google Drive accounts.
Users setting up a Sellbox profile first connect their Dropbox or Google Drive accounts, as well as their PayPal email address. They can then set the price of each file and share the link on social media sites or their own website, which directs consumers to pay via PayPal before they can access the Dropbox content. The solution could be an easy and lightweight way for musicians, artists, coders, designers and other creators of digital content to charge users for each download. Sellbox takes a nine percent cut for each download.
