    Has anyone here signed up to sell their games through the Digital River Network? If so, can you share us your experience and opinion on the merits of it? Thanks.

    Zero sales.

    From what I heard, it didn't work for anyone.

    And one week spent for nothing just to setup one single game at their system. We failed to setup it finally and gave up. :D

    The Reason I Ask...

    The reason I ask is, I want to set up a direct in-application purchasing of the game using Armadillo, and this feature is available if you join the DR Network. If there is an alternative to connecting w/ the Regnow e-commerce directly from the game, I'll take it. Thanks.

    We use eSellerate's in game purchasing, works pretty well. ~80% of our customers use the in game method.
