Selling eBooks
I'm trying to figure out a way to integrate eBooks along with courses when a user goes to purchase a course they would have an option to buy an eBook as well. 

So far I have been unsuccessful at finding a solution to this. Either creating the option or just being able to sell the eBooks at all.

Hi Kevan

Presumably you've looked at and rejected solutions like Smashwords or BookBaby.  You could advertise the book, cover, content and reviews in one course and then provide a link to a paid course from where the book could be downloaded.  Less than ideal I appreciate.

Failing that I think you might have to fall back on a custom solution.

It is not the sexiest solution, but you could simply put a link to the ebook's purchase page in the course description and in the course itself.

But if you want to have multiple "products" on one checkout, I think you will need to develop a custom solution.
