    Greetings,

    I want to create a simple one page to sell one product, i need one of those applications that one must enter his mail to get a sample, then he gets the sample either by redirect or into his mail.

    i would like to know what kind of code I'm looking for, and are there any pre made. free or to buy?

    thank you

    You wouldn't really accomplish that using HTML or CSS, which is what section you posted this in. I think you are looking for something that is accomplished using PHP.

    What is the sample? A tangible item, or a digital file of some kind?
    And if they like the sample, do they go back and order? If so, how (PayPal, or what credit card merchant)?

    The email part is easy ...
    You have a PHP script that sends a PDF as an email attachment (the sample PDF).
    Lots of PHP script examples for that via Google.

    PayPal does have a built-in thing where it will redirect the person to a web page only
    after successful payment. I'm thinking the web page it sends them to is a PHP script that
    sends the "real" PDF as an email, and then redirects to a thank you page.

    Or,
    You use PayPal API Integration where PHP scripts that get back a successful payment
    and then it emails the file. There is a free PayPal "sandbox" to develop and test scripts
    before going 'live'. I think there are several PayPal examples on their development site.

    Keep in mind that anyone who has received the PDF file can send it to anyone they want.
    Whether they pay for it and don't pass it along is strictly on the honor system.

    Sorry I don't have time to give you actual script examples.

    Do you have an existing site? And is your site constructed using WordPress?
    The one script is a WP plugin, the other, I'm not sure.

    I guess I should ask ... do you even have a website yet?

    i am doing it right now using html and some css, its in the works, but i doubt i will become a programmer!

    All i need is to have all the people in my database so i can use their emails to send if i have another product, so i do not search all over again for future customers if you have the ones who are already interested!

    Well, you'll have to be a programmer or hire one.
    Doing this will require PHP and most likely MySQL for the database.

    If you were to create your website using WordPress you could find plug-ins
    to do the dirty work. But installing WordPress, finding a theme that works
    for you, and customizing the theme ... all of that ... and learning how WP
    works (if you're not familiar) will be another learning curve.

    Do you have a site online already? A webhost, domain name, etc?

    I'm just not sure if your site would be better done with WordPress or not.
    It's like the book "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" ... you will want it to do this,
    then you will want it to do that, and hey ... I didn't know you could do that, so
    add that feature ... and so on ... and so on.
