Yes, I've been using Payhip to sell my non-fiction ebook How To Mod The Sims 3. http://payhip.com/b/uWT7
Never had any issues, and buyers tell me the process is easy. The user interface is straight forward. Basically it works.

Thanks for the link Lynda, it does look incredibly simple doesn't it? Might have to investigate.

Good to hear your feedback, Darkpool. Anyone else used it?

This is an improvement on creating our own PayPal sales buttons - PayPal takes a (small) cut from self-programmed buttons.

Just to clarify, this is NOT run by Paypal in any way. The site simply uses Paypal as a payment processor. Other than that, I have no idea how legit, secure or reliable the site is.

ETA: It does look interesting, but I'm a little concerned how they are monetising the site. They claim to take no cut of any payment, yet they are hosting the files and handling the transactions.

Watching this with interest...

I’m an artist selling original, alternative, non-normative and queer content which is sexy and adult-oriented but not explicit or pornographic. I don’t work with nude and I’m not artistically interested in explicit and normative imaginary such as penetration and similar. Nothing wrong with that: it’s just not my cup of tea.
My work focuses on male feet and tickling. You can like it or dislike it, but no one could question that it is totally “harmless”.
Since the very first moment (in fact, a few days later) I started to use their plugin, PayHip treated me with a very heavy and patriarchic and malodorous and moralistic ostracism, using every possible excuse.
They first banned my store preventing me to work in 2015. When I complained, they sent me an email saying they were sorry and explaining that one of their workers just saw the preview images to some of my clips and “assumed” (yes, you’ve read that right: that’s how professional they are) they were pornographic, and before asking for confirmation they just banned me (!). They promised it wouldn’t happen again.
Now, two years later, they’ve sent me the very SAME-worded email and I’m banned again.
It’s been several days now and they just refuse to reply to my many emails requesting an explanation.
I want to make one thing clear: as I speak (June 2017), PayHip doesn’t have ethical, moral or even legal limitations in their terms of service about the content sold via their plugin. They probably should, but they don’t.
When I talked to PayPal about this, they confirmed they have zero problems with my work, my content and my videos and that what I do does not go against PayPal’s terms of service.
This is what happens when people who have probably been brain-washed by religion and medieval morals run a (supposedly) multi-cultural business.
Stay away if you love freedom of expression and respect all your sisters and brothers, fellow human beings.
