  1. I have recently started experimenting with the bookshelf plugin and have some success with it. My only concern is that people don’t want to wait 3-5 days to upload an ebook they have just purchased. Is there a way to insert the url in the thank you page so they can go back and upload the book sooner rather than awaiting paypal approval?

  2. Hello Reuben
    I was so excited to find this free plugin however I’ve spent 3 hours trying to make it work. The Buy Now button doesn’t show up. I created the customs field Price and added the value without $$ sign. I’m runnin WP 3.0 with Twenty Ten Theme. My eBook page is a sub-menu page (My Works/To Choose). I’ve researched all your help answers…I created the folder “.htaccess” and created the file “deny from all.” The permission is 755. I’ve deleted the plugin and reinstalled it but still no go. Any ideas? Does the software not work on sub-pages?

    • The custom field name should be price and an appropriate value like 10, 20, etc…(the actual price in value field)

  3. Hi there,

    First, it’s a great plugin. Great job.

    I have a question. Is there a way for me to control where the paypal button appears. Like a short-code? I would like to position the button in other places, rather in the end of the post.


    • Thank you for using Bookshelf.

      Currently, it is not possible to place the button in other positions. It will be available from the next version.
