eMacsoftware.com is an exclusively Mac OS site that concentrates on selling software that uses the Electronic Software Distribution (ESD) model. With ESD, you let them charge your credit card and in return you can download the software you paid for and get a license key to unlock the software.
ESD products often have boxed, retail versions as well as downloadable versions. While you don’t get a manual or other physical items with an ESD, the prices are often lower than their retail counterparts.
While most companies have their own web sites and let you buy through their own e-commerce solution, eMacsoftware lets you search for software or browse through categorized listings. And unlike other Mac reseller Web sites, their Web site is quick-loading and easy to use.
