The easiest way to setup to sell something on a site, particularly a one product store is to accept payment through a Paypal button they accept credit card payment from people without a Paypal account.
You may be facing a long effort to get a that receives enough visitors to make significant sales, when projecting sales conversions rates, some start with a 1% estimated conversions rate, 1 sale per 100 visitors to the sales page. You can assume an investment in an SEO campaign to earn search ranking which brings visitors wold be needed.
There are a number of digital download product options, some services that just manage the file and provide a piracy resistant temporary link, and various selling sites that help advertise the product and administer the payment issues. Shareasale, and Clickbank are example that have affiliate networks who help promote products with a typical 50% commission, this is a bargain if it gets you 10x the sales. There is some cost to get setup on these sites and they may require you to setup a dedicated sales page site. Some in the internet marketing field sell low cost guides through the rookie oriented Warriorforum site’s WSO (warrior special offer) section, your expected to offer a uniquely low discount price there, setup for a first time seller is around $ 80.
