How it works

Filesprout is the easiest way to sell any file from your Dropbox, Amazon S3, shared hosting or own server.

You host your files (we never see them). Choose one, pick a price and use Filesprout to create a "buy" button link which you can share on your website or across the internet.

And the best part is: you get money anytime somebody downloads your file. Filesprout does everything.

The payment is processed via PayPal or Stripe, and the purchaser can then download the file from your storage via our website, so the file's location is never exposed. Coolio. And you get paid directly.

We charge 5% on each sale. So you get 95% of each transaction immediately - directly to your PayPal or Stripe account. There is no sign-up for you or the buyer, and no monthly fee nor contract. Plus you control your files' whereabouts at all times. Phew.

We also have a simple API with lots of sweet integrations available or on the way. Use one of the available plugins or the easy form above to make your Filesprouts. You can also Filesprout digital products from within your own website or app. Use the API to make an integration and empower your users.

API

You can Filesprout from within your own website/application using our simple API. Two endpoints are available, to return either a link or complete button html.

Get a Link

POST	"https://www.filesprout.com/l/api/1.0/getlink"
            
Get a Button

POST	"https://www.filesprout.com/l/api/1.0/getbutton"
            

Authentication is not required, though we recommend storing API responses in your own application to avoid rate limiting.

Requests are made by sending JSON data to either of the endpoints in the form of a POST request.

Sample JSON post data

{"name":"Product name","price":"20.00"
,"currency":"USD","email":"paypalemail@address.com"
,"downloadURI":"http://locationofyourfile/product.pdf"}
                

Currency codes are USD, GBP, EUR or JPY.

Filesprout provides all responses, both successful and unsuccessful, in an easy to work with JSON data format. Check out the examples below.

Successful request: Response with Filesprout link

{"data":"https://www.filesprout.com/l/WkQVYPS"}
                    
Unsuccessful request: Response with error message

{"data":"Null"
,"error":"The file is not reachable at that URL"}
